Growing in Prince Edward County comes with its own unique set of challenges. People are often surprised to learn how different PEC vineyard techniques are from practices in the Niagara region. Here, a shorter growing season and colder winters means that good management makes all the difference between a good harvest and a great one.
From early spring through first frost and beyond, we are in the fields working the soil, managing the canopy and caring for vines so the grapes have the best possible conditions for growth. Over the past 15 years, Edgar Ramirez has been growing, learning and innovating alongside the flourishing Prince Edward County viticulture scene and is one of the pioneers. He has been at the forefront of establishing systems that work for the County's climate and soils.
