Overview

By Chadsey's Cairns winery is located on a 200-year-old farm settled by James and Maria Chadsey in 1809. Fruit has been grown on the property from its earliest days, apples, later cherries and raspberries and now grapes. Entering the property you park beside the pioneer cemetery and walk back in time to the Apple House (circa 1855) Tasting Room and wine store located behind four magnificent barns that overlook Lake Ontario.Mature maples and lilacs border the Apple House vineyard and you can enjoy the bucolic splendour sampling your wine on the deck nestled into the vineyard.Eight different vinifera wines are grown here. Some of the first planted in the County,and most of them representing the first commercial offerings of fine wines from PEC in 2002 and 2003.You can rent the 5 bedroom farmhouse beside the winery any time of the year and use it as your base to explore "the County". Full descriptions of the hundred-year-old house, with rates and occupancy calendars can be accessed through the By Chadsey's Cairns facebook page.No matter the time of year there are reasons to visit the location, for Maple in the County, Countylicious, Terroir, TASTE, the Jazz Festival, Studio Touring, Pumpkinfest, Wassail or chilling in the Christmas holidays and winter solstice. Picking parties at By Chadsey's Cairns are a great way to spend an October Saturday.Vida and Richard also host concerts in the barn for their customers and friends, barn dances, readings etc.

We stopped in at Chadsey's on a winery tour a few days ago. Such a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Beautiful building and artwork; delicious wine and the owner was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and great stories! Favourite stop on the tour!

Thanks so much for the generous review. It is always good to get positive feedback, especially when we are exhausted at this time of year tying down canes. Richard

I love the wine from here. Be sure to try the red sparkling wine - it's always a big hit. The owner is so friendly and takes the time to explain the wine to you. The tastings are cheaper than many other nearby wineries too.
