Trius Winery & Restaurant offers an extensive collection of terroir-driven, premium wines made by the 2016 Winemaker of the Year, Craig McDonald, in addition to the largest underground sparkling wine cellar in Canada and most Instagrammable winery tour, #TheTriusTour.
Trius Winery is a Canadian winemaking pioneer that has been crafting fine VQA wines from premium grapes for over 40 years. Nestled between the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario, we harvest our grapes from four Niagara-on-the-Lake appellations to create distinctive varietals that reflect our region’s unique taste of place.
The Trius Red, a Bordeaux blend-inspired wine, burst onto the international wine scene when it became the first-ever Canadian vintage to be recognized as the Best Red Wine in the World. In addition to positioning Trius Red as the little big red that could, the win marked an important step for the Canadian wine industry, sending a signal that our country’s wine could stand on their own against old world wines. As more and more Canadian wine lovers discovered Trius and wanted to visit the winery where the wines were being produced, it was a logical next step to align the Hillebrand Winery property with its most beloved brand. In 2012, Trius Winey was born.
In addition to creating Canada’s most iconic wines, Trius Winery has earned a reputation for blending wine, food and the arts to create some of Canada’s most iconic wine country experiences. Savour locally inspired cuisine by Executive Chef Frank Dodd for lunch or dinner daily at the Trius Winery Restaurant. Be sure not to miss their annual outdoor movie nights through the summers and their touring pass programs Yes Way, Rosé in June; Sip, Sip Hooray in July and Cabernet, All the Way in October.
