When I first moved to Ontario I assume (quite incorrectly) that all wine produced in this province was pretty bad. Luckily Angels Gate and their sister operation Kew Vineyards, were there to set me straight. Since discovering these two amazing vineyards I make a monthly pilgrimage out to Jordan, Ontario to stock up. Last year I was honoured to do some commissioned work for Angels Gate, building a new image library to fill their slick new website.
In addition to making some pretty stellar wines, Angels Gate has a beautiful terrace complete with a wood fired pizza oven. On a clear day you can enjoy a glass of wine and look out across the lake all the way back to Toronto. You can even make out if the Skydome is open.
We were lucky enough to be shooting right before harvest so the vines were laden with grapes (we may have snuck a taste or two).
The last light of late August blanketed the whole estate in gold, it would be impossible to not feel inspired standing in this beautiful vineyard.
