Two SistersWinery

Two Sisters Winery

The winery is owned by two sisters Melissa Marotta-Paolicelli and Angela Marotta between them they have seven children. Our story began with our first vineyard planting in 2007. With an unwavering vision, Two Sisters Vineyards realizes our family passion to bring an extraordinary wine and culinary experience to the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake. 

Located in the heart of the Niagara River sub-appellation, their winery and vineyards span over 130 acres across this remarkable part of Ontario. Planted varietals include Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.

Adam Pearce -Head Winemaker

Pursuing a career in viticulture was inevitable for Adam – it has long been his love and passion. After graduating from the Winery & Viticultural program at Niagara College, Adam perfected his craft at leading wineries along the Escarpment before moving outside Ontario to further his skillset. After time with wineries in both British Columbia and Australia, Adam returned to Niagara to spearhead the wine program at Two Sisters Vineyards. Taking a non-interventionalist approach to TSV’s luxury wine portfolio, Adam lets the fruit and vineyards take center stage in producing wines that are a true expression of the terroir. In 2018, Adam’s efforts were rewarded at Canada’s most prestigious wine competition, The National Wine Awards of Canada. The 2014 Cabernet Franc was awarded a platinum medal along with other distinguished awards which led to TSV being awarded ‘Best Performing Small Winery of the Year in Canada’.
