History

The property on which the Vineyard is located was slated for subdivision by the previous owner. Michael Kacaba, a Toronto Bay St. lawyer, of Ukrainian descent and from a Saskatchewan background, was able to purchase the property in 1997. He immediately set to work in planting the present vineyard and establishing a winery for the first vintage in 1999. The history of the winery has been startling insofar as the wines have consistently gone on to win a substantial number of prestigious awards. The wines have very good recognition and acceptance by customers and restaurants as well as Canadian Embassies and Canadian Parliament. Our wines sell out regularly soon after their release.

Practices & Techniques

All Kacaba selected clusters are hand-picked and hand-sorted prior to gentle de-steming before whole berry, small tank fermentation. As opposed to large format tank fermentation, our wines are fermented in small vessels to increase the intensity of flavor and concentration. To maintain the maximum exposure of red wine juice to skin, the ‘cap’ solid formation of skins, seeds and pips are punched down. This allows the juice to run freely over the sediment to increase the color, tannin and acid structure. Once the juice has extracted the desire amount of color and structure from the skins, it is pressed in a large bladder press, releasing all juice from the solids. It is at this point that the wine begins its long transformation in barrel.
