Run by self-described viticultural cowboys, By Chadsey’s Cairns was one of the first wineries to pop up in PEC. Back in 1999, they planted 3,000 Riesling vines in an area that can be so abused by Ontario’s cold season, even the hardiest grapes can barely survive the harsh winters. To help the grapes thrive, they began burying the vines before the frost. It’s a laborious process, and one that has become standard County practice. Today, winemaker Vida Zalnieriunas oversees the wine program, creating low-intervention bottles. The Pinot Noirs and Gamays are particularly good here.
