Fielding Estate Winery is nestled on Niagara's Beamsville Bench. The Fielding Family welcomes their guests to hear their story and share in their wine and memories.
The Fieldings searched the Niagara Region for the perfect location and came across the cozy Beamsville location with the rolling hills and the awe-inspiring view of Lake Ontario.
Their son, Curtis Fielding and his wife Heidi, lead the dynamic team who are passionate about winemaking and Niagara's wine industry. When Curtis started farming, his goal was to grow the best quality wine grapes to supply the family winery with the crops to make a small batch of high quality wines. The Fieldings continue this practice and are committed to sustainable farming. Richie Roberts, winemaker, joined the team in 2007 and has led the winemaking team to success with innovative and enjoyable wines from the Fielding vineyards.
Our Vineyards - Fielding Vineyard and Tufford Road Vineyard - are located in different Niagara sub-appellations, the Beamsville Bench and Lincoln Lakeshore respectively.
The unique micro-climates of these sub-appellations combined with the distinguishing characteristics of our vineyards are significant factors in the characteristics of our wines. Each vineyard and every block within each vineyard expresses itself differently. It is our winemakers’ duty to bring out the best from each area.
Sub Appellation Information:
Fielding Vineyard-The Beamsville Bench is a narrow strip of land located along the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The land is well-sloped which promotes good air flow to combat disease and extends the growing season well into the fall. The clay loam soil and deep limestone base provide good natural drainage. Cooler and prolonged growing seasons are well-suited to making wines with good acid backbone, intensely concentrated flavours in the berries and unmistakable minerality on the finish.
Tufford Road Vineyard .The Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation sits halfway between the slopes of the Beamsville Bench and the shoreline of Lake Ontario. Here, our grapes receive a full day of sun exposure and warmer nights, which in turn gives many varieties a much-needed longer growing season. The land also features well-drained sandy loam soil with a high concentration of stone deposits from the ancient lakeshore.
Award winning wines are one reason to visit the winery, but not the only. Throughout the year Fielding Estate Winery host many events out in the vineyards.
The Fielding Estate story wouldn't be complete without the labour and love from our team.
