Konzelmann Estate Winery

KONZELMANN ESTATE WINERY IS NIAGARA’S EXCLUSIVE LAKEFRONT WINERY AND IS HERALDED

FOR PROVIDING ONE OF THE MOST FRIENDLY, INFORMATIVE AND EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES IN NIAGARA’S WINE COUNTRY.

“Wine Is At The Heart Of Everything We Do”

The winery began in the small German town of Uhlbach near the turn of the 19th century, when a restauranteur named Frederick Konzelmann left the culinary trade to pursue the craft of winemaking. By 1984 the Konzelmann family immigrated to Canada, purchased a lakefront peach orchard… and the rest they say, is history.

Herbert Konzelmann is a fourth generation wine-maker and the first in the family to leave Germany in search of the next perfect spot to grow grapes. In 1984, he discovered one of the prettiest properties in Niagara, along the shores of Lake Ontario in Niagara-on-the- Lake, a spot that reminded him of Alsace, France. Not because of the scenery, but due to the micro-climate, which is similar to Alsace with a wonderful balance of sun, soil, airflow and moisture conditions, ideal for making clean, aromatic, fruity wines.
