Stratus is a relatively new winery in Niagara-on-the Lake founded in 2005 by David Feldberg. The Stratus team is executing the winery vision to produce wines of outstanding quality right in their backyard in Niagara.
It is all about sustainability and high quality. They produce the best possible wine ,only limited quantities from grapes grown on their 62-acre estate. There are 17 varieties of grapes in their vineyard ,7 white and 10 red.
