Attraction details
Owner description: Pillitteri Estates Winery proudly continues a family tradition of viticulture and winemaking excellence. For Gary Pillitteri, the opening of Pillitteri Estates Winery in June of 1993 was the culmination of a lifetime dream. Today the Pillitteri family continues his dream and tradition of quality, having received over 600 wine awards from around the world. The family’s winemaking philosophy is quite simple: “To produce the finest wines possible from the highest quality Niagara Peninsula grapes.” The strategy, however, is much more complex. Each vineyard and wine is treated individually since each has its own ‘personality’ that must be expressed. “Our goal is to produce consistent, quality wine for our consumers: rich, full-bodied reds; fragrant and lively whites; and luscious Icewines, all in a variety of styles to suit every palate.”

“Nice Beginning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2011

My husband and I booked a tour with the Grape Escape and this was our first stop. I love starting out with a tour and getting the history behind the business. We chose a Thursday, so not a lot of crowds, in fact we were the only ones on the tour. We were able to see where they make the wine and store it in the cellar. In the cellar, we saw the longest one-piece concrete table ever made and the 23 chairs that go around it. Very impressive. Emma was a great tour guide and wine tasting counsel. We bought 2 bottles from this location and can't wait to pop cork's at home.
