Introduction

Fielding Vineyard on Beamsville Bench and Tufford Road Vineyard on Lincoln Lakeshore are located in different Niagara sub-appellations. The unique micro-climates of these sub-appellations combined with the distinguishing characteristics of our vineyards are significant factors in the characteristics of our wines. Each vineyard and every block within each vineyard expresses itself differently. It is our winemakers’ duty to bring out the best from each area. The Beamsville Bench is a narrow strip of land located along the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The land is well-sloped which promotes good air flow to combat disease and extends the growing season well into the fall. The clay loam soil and deep limestone base provide good natural drainage. Cooler and prolonged growing seasons are well-suited to making wines with good acid backbone, intensely concentrated flavours in the berries and unmistakable minerality on the finish. The Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation sits halfway between the slopes of the Beamsville Bench and the shoreline of Lake Ontario. Here, our grapes receive a full day of sun exposure and warmer nights, which in turn gives many varieties a much-needed longer growing season. The land also features well-drained sandy loam soil with a high concentration of stone deposits from the ancient lakeshore.
