E.S JOHNSTON FARM is located within the far North of the Huron Shores Growing Region. The vines are strategically situated within a unique soil type where part of the vineyard is located on the slopes of a decommissioned Gravel Pit. This adds minerality, strengthens the root systems of the Plants and retains heat during cooler days. The soil pH is naturally high. By blending these 3 VQA Certified Reds together, (Marquette, Marechal Foch & Baco Noir) it’s a marriage of sorts. Each lends itself to the others and allows for a proper profile to be built to our standards. A true partnership between Schatz Winery and Johnston Farms is reflected in the core values of showcasing the Terroir of Huron Shores.
