Summary: Bergeron Estate Winery is a boutique winery in the Prince Edward County DVA. Located on the Loyalist Parkway the winery is just a short distance east of the Glenora Ferry.
Bergeron Estate Winery is a family owned and operated boutique winery. Visitors enjoy a wine tasting in a Williamsburg blue room with a white ceiling. Old timbers have been added giving the room character.
David Bergeron grew up on a farm and has always been interested in farming. After hearing about a winery in Waupoos, he knew he could grow grapes. David and his wife, Mary, purchased the property in 2002. David and Mary planted grapevines in 2003, 2004 and 2005 for a total of 10 acres. Grape varieties include Vidal, Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, and Gamay. David also manages a nearby Cabernet Franc vineyard.
The facility is under renovation and when finished a pizza oven will be included. Old timbers are used to enhance the feel of the tasting room. A shelf shows artifacts that David has discovered while working in the fields to prepare the soil for grapevines. Artwork by a local artist is displayed on the walls. The art is also used on the wine bottle labels. The artist, Heather Haynes, created paintings using modernistic trees. Each piece of work uses different colors to portray the colors and characteristics of the wine. Heather tasted a wine and then painted a picture to reflect the wine.
In addition to wines, Bergeron Estate Winery is producing ciders. Ciders are lower in alcohol and when served cold match well with a warm and humid summer day.
