Casa Dea Estates has two vineyards currently under production. Our first vineyard is planted on the site of the winery and was planted in 2001 with Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. Our other vineyard is located on Cold Creek Road and was planted in 2002 and has Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Zwiegelt, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Melon de Bourgougnon.
Our vineyards produce fruit that expresses the minerality of our property and wines with character, stylish, elegance. Both vineyards have very similar soil types. Our vineyards have a clay limestone soil that is unique to Prince Edward County. Discover our grapes here.
We are always learning from our vineyard and what it takes to produce premium grapes in Prince Edward County. Our winemaker, Paul Battilana, is working constantly with our Vineyard Manager and field hands, to fine-tune unique viticulture practices to perfect the strengths of various blocks from our vineyard sites. In the cellars, ongoing advancements in yeast selection, specific barrel cooperage, vinification techniques and handling, are creating inspiring results. Our goal is to craft excellent wine, and our team must carefully oversee the vineyard, and learn to implement what is needed.
