Niagara Winemaking Methods
David Wang acquired the Maleta Estate Winery, situated on a sloping land that was the shoreline of a lakebed long ago. The winery is located adjacent to a historic site that was once one of Niagara’s first commercial vineyards in the 1800s. The grapes are cultivated on the clay soil that is given additional nutrients like straw and horse manure making it fertile. Along with using traditional winemaking methods, the winery implements modern vineyard management processes to produce quality wines. Small quantities of premium wines are produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. A blend of these has resulted in the award-winning Bordeaux-style, oak-aged Meritage red wine. Other wines include icewines, specialty wines and Gamay and Riesling wines produced from vines that are more than 40-year-old.
