Matos Winery & Distillery

Jim Matos and his family purchased a 50 acre parcel of land in St. Catherines in 2007 where they applied the French concept of terroir to ensure they had a place where the combination of soil, slope, sun exposure and the peculiar weather vagaries allow certain grape varieties to unfold their unique characteristics. They have been successfully producing Matos wine ever since! Tour of the facility and a sample.
