In 1979, Salvatore D’Angelo began his search for the land on which to plant his vineyard. As an accomplished amateur winemaker, his ambition was to start his own winery within the heart of Essex County, in Southern Ontario. In 1983 he bought fifty acres in Amherstburg, just south of Windsor.
Then in 1984 Sal planted his first acre of grapes, making his first vintage in 1989. Today, the magnificent vineyard covers forty-two acres of the fifty-acre property.
