Owners Sam and Lina Pillitteri began converting their Niagara River orchard to a vineyard in the early ’90s, opening Riverview in 2000.
After more than 20 years of grape growing Riverview still remains very much a family effort. Excellent rich soils and the talents of Winemaker Angela Kasimos create award-winning wines year after year. The portfolio centers on characterful Gewürztraminer and Angelina’s Reserve Chardonnay among whites, and Bordeaux-style reds, like the triple award-winning Cabernet Franc. A selection of specialized Icewines have received gold-medal accolades at home and abroad. Come and enjoy at the tasting bar or with a cheese plate on the outdoor patio, and feel part of the Riverview family.
The winery is closed Christmas Day, New Years Day, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.
