By Chadsey’s Cairns

We grow the wines we make:
100 % authentic Prince Edward County wines

They are all classic fine wines: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the gold-standard of the dining table, the ever popular Riesling and Gewürztraminer (often touched with noble rot); refreshing bistro-styled Gamay Noir; and rarer wines such as the fragrant Muscat Ottonel, mineral-rich Chenin Blanc and the blackberry-laden St. Laurent.

Our rosés are dry and the sparklings range from a delicate salmon pink to a vibrant striking red.

Historic Tasting Room

The most charming way to purchase wine is in our tasting room, a historic apple house from the 1850s. It’s the heart of this glorious and storied farm with its sweeping landscape views, grand barns overlooking the lake, picnic tables under shady maples and poignant gravestones in the Chadsey pioneer cemetery. One of the original Prince Edward County wineries, the farm has preserved a sense of intimacy with the land.

Named after Ira Chadsey, an early settler who built stone cairns at the back of the farm to guide him home in the afterlife when he returned as a white horse, the winery, By Chadsey’s Cairns, has become an iconic county touchstone.


Ira Chadsey and the cairns

The winery is named after an early settler, Ira Chadsey, who built stone cairns at the back of the property claiming they would guide him home in the afterlife when he returned as a white horse. A century later, the story is still being told, hence the winery By Chadsey’s Cairns.
