The wines of Rosehall Run, Prince Edward County
Visiting wine country in Ontario, Canada, part 9

Website: www.rosehallrun.com

Dan Sullivan (below) started out as a home winemaker. His hobby got out of control, and now he has a proper vineyard and winery. The first plantings on this property were in 2001, and now there are 25 acres of estate vineyards. 

This was a relaxed, fun visit. We had a walk around the vineyards, and did some tasting, and then sat drinking some beer. The wines here are consistently very good.
