Cellar Barrels

Tawse is a family-owned estate winery, located on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, in the sub appellation of Twenty Mile Bench.

Founder, Moray Tawse purchased his Cherry Avenue property in 2000 and opened his six level, state-of-the-art winery in 2005.

The architecture of the winery was carefully conceived to be environmentally friendly. Many of our wines are aged in underground cellars, maintaining an ambient temperature between 10 and 16 degrees Celsius, with a natural humidity of approximately 85%. This relatively stable temperature and high humidity allows the wine to age gracefully with a minimum amount of evaporation.

Our modern geo thermal energy system has reduced our use of traditional forms of energy by 8
