Terra Estate Winery is a world-class boutique winery located in Ontario’s newest wine region, Prince Edward County.
Co-founders Ottavio Marchi and Bruno Tam were born to make wine. They were engaged in vineyard and viticulture practices at a very young age on their families’ farms in the Friuli region of northern Italy.
They emulated their “Nonni” (grandfathers) who had been tending their vineyards throughout the economic upheaval of the great wars. Marchi and Tam acquired the necessary attributes of thrift, sustainability and respect for the land (the “Terra”) from these Friulani innovators. Terra’s roots are truly authentic and are cast in the rich history of its Friulani viticulture pioneers.
It is their mission to provide Ontario brewers with excellent quality, aromatic, local hops for craft beer making.
Edgar Ramirez and Catherine Crawford planted their first hopyard at their farm, Pleasant Valley Hops, in 2013. The following year, they expanded the hopyard to 2.5 acres. They plan to continue expanding their commercial hop growing operation and are interested in planting specific hop varietals based upon brewer requests. Please call Edgar at 613-921-1362 for more information.
