Arguably one of the best vineyards for Pinot Noir in Ontario is the Lowrey Vineyard on St. David’s Bench in Niagara. The vineyard was planted in 1984 with Pinot Noir clone 115 at the suggestion of Karl Kaiser (co-founder of Inniskillin). It became the source of Inniskillin’s much loved Pinot Noir as well as the source of the grapes for the Inniskillin-Jaffelin collaboration sold under the Alliance label. The vineyard was also the source of the grapes for Creekside Winery’s much lauded Pinot Noir in the late 90s and early 2000s as well as in Le Clos Jordanne.
