The Grange vineyards are planted on fertile but largely shallow Hillier Clay-Gravel soils. The underlying bedrock common to all PEC is calcium-based limestone. Where the farm is located the bedrock is very easily fractured, meaning our soils have very high gravel content.
Our vineyards were planted over several years, allowing us to learn and adapt as we went along. We now have 60 acres of vineyards, growing and producing maturely. The quality of the fruit shines through, and the unique terroir of the farm is very distinct. Now, we have begun to reduce crop loads to develop even more intensity and quality in the fruit we are growing. We have planted in 6 distinctive blocks, each block was specially chosen for the 7 varieties planted; chardonnay, pinot gris, riesling, sauvignon blanc, gamay, pinot noir, cabernet franc.
Macération on grapes' skins. Primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperature. Second fermentation on lees during 12 months before bottling.
The Grange of Prince Edward is a family estate founded by Caroline Granger, who recognized the potential of the soil of her native Prince Edward County farm. After more than 13 years of development, the estate now grows more than 60 acres of vineyards (24 hectares) and seven varieties of grapes on well-defined plots. The soil, Hillier Clay-Gravel with a calcium-limestone base, was once challenging for vegetable growing but is ideal for viticulture. The pebbles help retain the sun's heat and then distribute it as the evenings cool down, allowing the grapes to reach full maturity. Above all, the pebbles bring a minerality that is the mark of Prince Edward County wines.
