Located in the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Stratus Vineyards is a gravity flow winery, distinguished by its LEED-certified facility, its commitment to sustainability and wines of outstanding quality.

Known as one of Niagara’s winemaking pioneers, J-L (Jean-Laurent) Groux brought his vision of creating premium New World wines through the Old World art of assemblage to Stratus. Using the vineyard as his palette, he creates complexity through diversity by blending several grape varieties into one layered and richly textured wine. J-L crafts his wines to have powerful aromatics, a round mouthfeel, complexity, significant length and the capability of aging at least seven to 10 years. This allows wine lovers to taste the benefits of patience and time.

As the only vineyard in Niagara to produce a single varietal Sangiovese, this is a truly a unique wine! Refreshing and focusing on bright acidity and fine-grained tannins that structure the core yet keep the palate soft. The nose is an intriguing melange of fresh red fruit with pronounced cherry, smoke, clove and sweet spice. Ripe cherry continues
throughout the palate with added layers of sun rose and tea leaf contributing to
the long, textured finish.
