& SOME PHILOSOPHY
Increasingly, the Niagara Wine Region speaks of allowing the vineyard to tell her story each harvest, and create wines of terroir — Niagara terroir. Why? Because this philosophy leads to wonderful, world class wines that are uniquely Niagara. This has always been the philosophy at Kew since our original plantings in 1975.
