Pillitteri Estates Winery
Founded by Gary Pillitteri in 1993, and sourcing grapes from several family vineyards, Pillitteri is now Canada’s largest estate producer of Icewine, exporting to over 30 countries. The winery’s string of Icewine hits from obscure varieties in Canada, such as Sangiovese and Semillon, have earned the bragging rights of international awards such as the Civart Trophy in Bordeaux, France, and, most recently, the prestigious Effervescents du Monde competition in Burgundy, France. Pillitteri’s winemaking team is lead by Winemaker Alexander Kolundzic, who crafts fresh Riesling and Pinot Grigio, as well as deep, age-worthy Cabernet and Merlot. Don’t miss the barrel cellar, which holds the world’s longest concrete table and showcases suspended, stainless steel chairs.
