Eleven varieties of Red. Seven of White. Row upon row of grape vines. Vitis vinifera. Vigilantly maintained and rigorously thinned by hand to yield fruit with more concentrated, more complex flavours. Wines that capture the "somewhereness" of Stratus.
 

Stratus Vineyards sits on 62 acres near the southeastern border of the Niagara Lakeshore sub-appellation. It shares the benefits of the region with its neighbours, while enjoying advantages that are uniquely its own. The vineyard is far enough away from the moderating influence of Lake Ontario to grow grape varieties that need warmer temperatures in the summer. At the same time, the lakes proximity helps protect the vines from early frost in the fall.
