After six generations of history going back to 1794 the Speck brother’s have turned this farming estate into a successful winery. Responsible for planting some on Canada’s first vines in the 1840’s and becoming a commercial wine estate in the 1980’s. The current generation of Speck’s, three brothers, Paul, Matthew and Daniel along with winemaker Lawrence Buhler produce a wonderful range of wines.
From Niagara’s most premium vineyards, including those shovel planted by the Speck Bros. starting in 1984, their range red wines are aged in a combination of French and American oak resulting in sturdy, bright wines with juicy red to black berry flavours. The heavy clay soils, with their tossed-up limestone, naturally limit the yields per vine and make for wines of intensity and character.
