Unique Property, Distinct Wines
Rancourt has always focused on producing small quantities of high-quality wine from classic grapes. Its 25 acre vineyard in the heart of the Niagara Lakeshore sub-appellation produces outstanding grapes for merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, riesling and chardonnay.
These grapes are primarily influenced by the unique soils and temperatures found in this area. Deltaic sands and silts, along with the long growing season, contribute to flavour development in the grapes and mature, full-bodied wines produced by Rancourt.
New winemaker, Eric Pearson, strives to use the Rancourt vineyard’s unique traits to develop high quality wines that showcase the vineyard’s personality.
