Standing out from a vast landscape of single varietal wines, Stratus specializes in assemblage: combining multiple varieties of grapes to create unique blends. Established in 2000, and emerging on the Niagara wine scene in 2005, they continue to perfect what has traditionally been a recipe for disaster for winemakers. A fine example is the Stratus White, a mix of six grape varieties, that's complex and unlike anything you've ever tasted (in a good way). Sip all three assemblage
wines (white, red, and ice wine) and a handful of single varietals in the modern glass-walled tasting room, installed in the world's first LEED-certified winery. Tours must be reserved in advance and can include cheese and charcuterie, or a beer-and-wine pairing with the craft brewery next door, Oast House.
