We grow the wines we make:
100 % authentic Prince Edward County wines.

Our rosés are dry and the sparklings range from a delicate salmon pink to a vibrant striking red.
Historic Tasting Room
The most charming way to purchase wine is in our tasting room, a historic apple house from the 1850s.

One of the original Prince Edward County wineries, the farm has preserved a sense of intimacy with the land.
Named after Ira Chadsey, an early settler who built stone cairns at the back of the farm to guide him home in the afterlife when he returned as a white horse, the winery, By Chadsey’s Cairns, has become an iconic county touchstone.
