We have a true passion for making this a heritage winery and hopefully passing this on for generations.  We went from "corporate suits" to "gumboots".  Our vision is more in the lines of having our French Chateau or our Tuscan Villa here.  Watch us on the journey.

Background in the oil industry after graduating from Waterloo with a chemical engineering degree and continuing on with the Masters Degree at the University of Calgary for environmental engineering.  Continues to do part-time environmental consulting; however, the dream was to have a winery. 

 

Linda Holford - President, Owner

Worked in the oil industry for 15 years as a pipeline technologist working with projects both construction and maintenance.  it wasn't something that was a dream just a good opportunity.  After having children, kept volunteering on committees such as the town planning council, president of PAC primary schools and starting the winery as the sole proprietorship.  Took this on as the other owner still had a full time job and then transitioned to a larger corporation.  

Robin Holford - Daughter

Started the wine business when she was 8 and was a big part in helping out when she could including bottling at a young age.  She worked with us alongside and after high school graduation is now in 3rd year at Brock University with a major in eonology and viticulture and a minor in a science degree.  She hopes to study abroad and develop her own character wines.

 

Katherine Holford - Daughter

Started the wine business when she was 6 and was also a big part in helping out when she could also bottling at 6.  She has been around when she can but has dreams outside of the winery.  She is now studying in university to become a well know photo journalist.  Many shots on this website belong to her.  One thing you will notice though around the area is her artistic influences and many pictures on advertising and in this website is her camera work.  She now even has officially started on her own Facebook Page.  Click here.

 

Volunteers - People helping out because the industry is interesting and want to give a hand to help out a small farming winery is so important to us.  We want to thank all those hundreds of people that have passed by our way including friends, family and neighbors.  Thank you for being a part of our team too.
