NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE

Two Sisters Vineyard

With its diverse terroir, sheltered slopes and lakeside vineyards, a family’s vision led

GFG back home 

Established more than a decade ago and awarded “Best Small Winery in Canada’ by the National Wine Awards, two sisters, Angela Marotta and Melissa Marotta-Paolicelli  have created a gorgeous estate producing super-premium and luxury wines in Canada.  Settling in the Niagara region, particularly Niagara-on-the Lake, the Marotta family winery reflects their passion to bring people together over Italian food, pristine Bordeaux style wines and culture.

 

Taking a non-interventionist approach, wine-maker Adam Pearce is dedicated to

drawing on the unique soil composition and terroir on the estate.

The first of its kind, estate grown Blanc de Franc sparkling, showcases Ontario at it’s finest, while their elegant whites, sourced from leading vineyards in the cooler, mineral-rich Niagara Escarpment Benchlands highlights the delicate and delicious nature of our VQA. The complex estate red Bordeaux varieties from the warm Niagara River sub-appellation, rivals it’s French counterpart. 

From Senza, created with minimal  intervention, no added sulphur, no filtration or fining, to the Cask Series Cabernet Franc, the inaugural wine from the 5000L ‘Family’ cask and Stone Eagle, an extraordinary wine only made from the best vintages, it is easy to see why Two Sisters is at the top of their game. 

 

Angela and Melissa’s motivation and commitment to excellence is evident in every wine produced.  Along with Adam’’s expertise and meticulous approach to winemaking, Two Sisters Vineyard represents the best of Ontario, proving once again there is no place like home.
