“The original goal of Le Clos Jordanne was to create a ‘domaine’ in the Niagara region, producing ultra-premium, Burgundian-style chardonnay and pinot noir, entirely from our vines,” said Thomas Bachelder, winemaker for Le Clos. “I am thrilled to be able to expand that mission to include the terroirs of both the Jordan and Beamsville Bench.”

The Beamsville Bench is the westernmost part of the Niagara Peninsula wine-growing area and home to some of the best vineyards in Ontario. Angels Gate will contnue to operate over the summer while Thomas acclimates to the new vineyards and equipment. Work will begin soon on renovations to the tasting room. A grand opening event and media tours will be held once the renovation work is complete.
