Owner description: Our focus is single varietal, vineyard-focussed wines. Our process is minimalist. Our wines are uncompromising and rich with character and structure. Winemaker Mackenzie Brisbois employs wild-ferments whenever possible for their ability to build palate texture - whether it be a complex, soulful Unfiltered Chardonnay or knife-edge Skin- or Barrel-Fermented Riesling. Our category-defying Pet Nat Sparkling is completely Unfined and Unfiltered. No one wine or vintage is ever the same (nor should they be). Each wine tells the story of the site and vintage with unabashed honesty and freshness. Visit our newly-opened warm, modern, tasting space and try for yourself!

As we enjoy riding on Prince Edward County's lovely roads, those away from the major ones, we stumbled on this small but intriguing winery, in the middle of the most beautiful fields nearby. The winery just opened, but one can tell that they are doing the right thing. Dan, the winemaker, welcomed us and guided us through a tasting session; we were impressed by their whites and left with 6 bottles.

This is a promising winery; I highly recommend a stop at Trail Estate and look forward to future tastings!

Thanks for your wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed your stop and chatting with Dan. Stop in again any time! We'll have new wines releasing later this fall and next year - which we'll be announcing on our website and social media pages.

We had a great visit late yesterday with friends from Winnipeg and our daughters from McMaster University. It was a fitting end to a great day of tours, and our favourite stop. The wines offered were exactly what I was looking for - fresh, crisp and acidic, from the mineral soil. Its going to be very interesting to see their PEC vines develop and what they offer, from what we saw yesterday this is going to a frequent stop in the future.

A newly developing winery in PEC. Great to see the enthusiasm in the owners. Great if you prefer dry wines.
