Arterra Wines Canada acquires Angels Gate Winery and Kew Vineyards Estate Winery in the Beamsville Bench, the westernmost part of the Niagara Peninsula wine-growing area in Ontario.

“The Beamsville Bench is recognized worldwide for the quality of its wines, and I am honoured to welcome these two respected wineries in our family of Niagara wineries,” says John Boynton, president of Arterra Wines Canada. “These acquisitions reflect the company’s mission to grow amazing VQA premium offerings while leveraging Arterra’s winemaking excellence”.

Angels Gate has a total of 110 acres, with grape varieties including Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. With over 80 acres, Kew Vineyards Estate Winery’s 1975 plantings are among the oldest in the region.

“We are excited about the future of Angels Gate and Kew now that they are part of Arterra Wines Canada. We are confident Arterra will continue the development of both wineries as producers of premium quality wines while maintaining the values that have always been at the heart of our culture,” said John Young, president of Angels Gate and Kew Vineyards.
