Dr. William Fitch and Linda Fitch

The place New Brunswick a maritime province on the east coast of Canada. A region not yet associated with the established vineyards of Canada. Dr. William Fitch and his wife Linda Fitch had a dream  to own and run a small winery, They knew of a property for sale and by chance meet the sales agent. Unfortunately, all the wine-making equipment had been sold off, but the vineyard equipment was still there. They saw a great opportunity to fulfill the dream, at a great location close to Moncton, a major city population. This led to negotiations and an offer to buy in 2012.

The property is located near Memramcook, New Brunswick a village in Westmorland County, New Brunswick, Canada. Located in south-eastern New Brunswick, the community is predominantly people of Acadian descent who speak the Chiac derivative of the French language.

The village is close to the Bay of Fundy and the vineyard lies along the banks of the Petitcodiac River.

It took 4 years for the Fitchs to restore the 6 acre vineyard. The vineyard contains 9 varieties of grapes. The red grapes are Frontenac Red, Marquette, Petite Perle, and Sabrevois. The white vines consist of L’Acadie Blanc, Frontenac Blanc, Seyval Blanc, ES 2-3-17, and Osceola Muscat. The soils vary with loam, sand and clay at various points in the property.

A must try is their Oak Aged Maple Wine.
