A brief history
Born out of our love of fine wines and delicious food, Chateau Niagara Winery has become the premiere location for fine wines on the Niagara Lake Plain.
In June of 2006 our odyssey began when we purchased 31 acres of prime farmland on the banks of 18 Mile creek in Newfane and began growing high quality vinifera wine grapes. Varieties include well known wine grapes Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Blaufrankish as well as some exotic varieties- Saperavi and Turan. These grapes are part of long term effort to create very innovative wines as well as classic styles interpreted with a sense of the Niagara Lake Plain influence. The vineyard and winery are the lifelong dream of the owners Jim and Kathy Baker who share a passion for the land, the wine and good food.
