About Domaine Queylus
Domaine Queylus is located atop the Niagara Escarpent in Ontario’s renowned winemaking region, the Niagara Peninsula.
Guided by the vision of a group of keen investors from Quebec, we began our winemaking story with our first vintage in 2010. Our winery retail store and tasting room followed in 2014.
Selecting only varieties which we have identified as perfectly adaptable to our vineyards' complex soils and microclimate, we craft premium, cool-climate wines from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.
Wine ROOTED in sustainability
We believe in sustainable viticulture. The vines are grown organically (uncertified) out of respect for the precious, fragile soils of the Niagara Bench. No synthetic herbicides or insecticides are used. \
As of colour-change (véraison), all of our vineyards are covered with nets to protect the low-yielding vines. Each vineyard is cared for by hand, including pruning; shoot-thinning; shoot positioning; leaf pulling; green harvesting; and hand-harvesting.
We also plant cover crops between the rows in the vineyard to naturally break up the soil for aeration and add vital nutrients such as nitrogen back into the soil.
