Prince Edward County, Ontario (2) Huff Estates

Huff Estates was originally a hop farm, but now it’s a winery, and also hosts an art gallery and some luxury accommodation. Owner Lanny Huff began the project in 2002, and built a winery in 2004. His family have 12 generations in the county, and he was a chemical engineer. ‘I said the one thing I wouldn’t do is become a farmer,’ he told me. He’s since planted two vineyards. The one around the winery is called 62 + 1 vineyard, and it’s 15 acres. And there is also the 23 acre South Bay vineyard. Both have the clay/limestone soils that the County is famous for.
