Fielding Estate Winery
Reflecting their Haliburton roots, the Fielding family has built a winery with charming, northern Ontario–lodge ambience-set high on the Beamsville Bench, against the wooded Escarpment. Since opening in 2005, Fielding’s success has come quickly, capped by a top-10 berth in the 2009 Canadian Wine Awards (which judged over 100 wineries). Winemaker Richie Roberts has produced head-turning 2007 reds, including a CWA Gold Medal Meritage and a Cuvée-winning Syrah. Vibrant, juicy, aromatic whites, like Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Riesling, are delicious every vintage. Fielding participates in many regional wine events, but a trip to the winery, summer or winter, is the best way to experience its complete range of small-production wines.
