Aiming for wines that are inventive, distinctive and true to the terroir.
Closson Chase is now growing grapes and producing wines under the vigilant care of Keith Tyers. Keith is a winemaker with a passion for Prince Edward County and a mission to create the best expression of the terroir possible.
Keith hails from Kingston where he developed a keen passion for wine and food at an early age. A move to Toronto fuelled his interests and led him to become a sommelier through the International Sommelier Guild at Humber College. It was a desire to learn a new aspect of the hospitality industry that led Keith to make the change from restaurants to working at a winery. As much as he enjoys working as a sommelier and interacting with people, he was looking for a change and making the move to Prince Edward County was the opportunity to do this.
Keith started his career with Closson Chase in 2003 as a vineyard hand and subsequently assistant winemaker to Deborah Paskus. It was during this time that he honed his winemaking skills and gained extensive knowledge of winery operations and the wine industry. After a brief stint away from the winery as an independent consultant, he returned to become the retail sales manager and out of province sales agent. In early 2015 he was afforded the opportunity to make a life long dream come true when he accepted the position of winemaker at Closson Chase.
Goal: “I want to capture what Mother Nature grows in a bottle. In other words, I want to use what grows above the ground to showcase what happens in the ground.”
