Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned winery. A life-long lover of wine, Burgundy in particular, founder Moray Tawse purchased the Cherry Avenue property in 2000 after realizing the great potential of the Niagara Escarpment to be a world class cool-climate wine region. In 2005, he opened his state-of-the-art, gravity flow winery in Vineland, complete with a geo-thermal system and wetland bio-filter.
The inspiration for Moray Tawse’s Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Moray Tawse and his award-winning winemaking team, are dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
