Sun. Site. Soil. Grapes.
People to tend and harvest.
A place to make wine. Simple.

At Stratus, these elements transform into complex, age-worthy wines – expressions of time, of place, and of the essence of our vineyard that are simply extraordinary.

Located in the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Stratus Vineyards is a gravity flow winery, distinguished by its LEED-certified facility, its commitment to sustainability and wines of outstanding quality.

The winery, like our signature assemblage wines, is a composition – a whole greater than the sum of its parts. On their own, the individual elements are distinctly unique – a diversely planted vineyard with unusually rich soil; a sustainable facility that unites tradition and science to serve the winemaker’s art; and a retail gallery with adjoining tasting rooms that are both chic and welcoming. Working together, they create wines and experiences that are truly memorable.

“We had a vision – to make wines of outstanding quality right in our own backyard in Niagara. We wanted a wonderful environment, so that people who visited our winery to taste our exceptional wines would have a total experience that was out of this world. And we wanted the winemaking process, the winery and the rest of our facility to operate in accordance with the most sustainable and environmentally friendly practices possible.”
