Trail Estate Winery

ABOUT THE WINERY FOUNDED 2013

Situated in the heart of Prince Edward County, where Benway Road meets the Millennium Trail. Trail Estate is one of the County’s newest wineries focusing solely on small-batch, hand-crafted wines from exceptional hand-picked grapes. We are a family-owned and operated winery with a goal of producing superb food-friendly wines which reflect each vintage, with strong varietal character, structure and individuality.

Our wines are made in small batches — some as few as 40 cases — and many are available exclusively from our winery. We are thrilled with the many positive reviews our wines have garnered for our first vintage in 2013. We invite you to visit us at our in-winery tasting bar!

HEAD WINEMAKER: MACKENZIE BRISBOIS

A native of Prince Edward County, Mackenzie graduated from the University of Guelph’s Arts and Science program and Niagara College’s Winery and Viticulture Technician program. Learning, living and drinking in the culture of amazing Canadian wine while working at Norman Hardie Winery and gaining experience during harvests in South African (Bouchard Finlayson and Sumaridge) and New Zealand (Central Otago Wine Company) shaped her style. Taking on a new project, Mackenzie moved from Prince Edward County to Nanaimo, British Columbia to teach friends how to grow and make wine for their small-batch winery, Chateau Wolff. Having sampled various wine regions, Mackenzie is confident that the limestone soils of PEC are where she wants to put down her roots.
