Riverview Cellars Estate Winery
Sam and Lina Pillitteri began converting their Niagara River orchard to vineyard in the early ’90s, opening Riverview in 2000. Today, Riverview’s vineyard, winemaking and retailing remains very much a family effort. The portfolio centres on characterful Gewürztraminer and Angelina’s Reserve Chardonnay among whites, and Bordeaux-style reds, like the very good 2007 Cabernet Franc. The 2007 Cabernet Icewine has enjoyed gold-medal accolades at home and abroad. Enjoy the range at the tasting bar or with a cheese plate on the outdoor patio.
