D’Angelo Vineyards Estate Winery sits on a 50 acre vineyard on the 5th Concession in Amherstburg. Sal D’Angelo purchased the land back in 1981 and planted the first grape vines in 1983.
Do you know what type of vines were planted? Marechal Foch. Never heard of them? Well, that’s not surprising, we are the only vineyard in Essex County that grows this French hybrid. We also grow Vidal, Marquette, Cab Foch, Merlot and Baco Noir.
Our wines have won numerous awards and Sal was awarded the title of Grape King in 1999. This was the first time ever someone outside of the Niagara area was honoured.
Along with having wonderful, unique wines we also offer tours with the wine maker, Chris D’Angelo, and daily tastings. We hold luncheons and dinners that include a tour and tasting. We also offer wine for sale by the glass if you would just like to stop by and relax.
