We trust our winemakers to craft only the highest standard of Fielding wines, focusing on grape varieties that perform best in our own estate vineyards. Our wines are premium quality VQA wines, produced from 100 percent Niagara-grown grapes, which reflect both the characteristics of our estate vineyards and the growing conditions of the vintage from which they originate.
At Fielding, we take every aspect of winemaking very seriously, ensuring each grape grown is treated with the utmost care, using hand harvesting and fruit sorting, minimal crushing and gentle pressing. We keep our vineyard lots separate, from harvest until the final blending and bottling, allowing for a greater understanding of our vineyards and a greater ability to create interesting, single vineyard wines when merited.
Our whites feature fresh, fruit-driven aromatics, coupled with well-balanced acidity and richness on the palate. Fielding whites include Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay.
Our red wines are crafted to integrate fruit character with barrel-derived complexities, well structured tannins and round mouthfeel. Our reds are barrel-aged until they are selected for final blending and bottling. Fielding reds focus primarily on Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir, as well as unique and award-winning red blends, such as our Meritage and Red Conception.
Richie Roberts, Fielding's winemaker, came to Fielding Estate Winery after studying at Brock University’s prestigious Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute to be the head of the winemaking team. The quality of his wines comes from great skill and patience, and it’s his dedication to crafting wine that so many people respect and enjoy.
