Quality: AEW wines have won many awards both at the provincial and national level. Our approach is to go above and beyond, not only in the practice of our wine making but also in the services we provide to you, our customers.

Local: We believe in the sustainability of our region and the ability to produce and use what we can grow. All of our grapes come from Essex or Kent County. No juices from other grape growing regions are added. Even our fruit wines are 100% local fruit. We also believe that by producing a local product we are providing a snapshot of our region, it’s unique flavours and the people who live and work in the area.

Wine: We are proud to represent one of the world’s best wine producing regions and we try to create the best wine possible by respecting the characteristics of each grape.

Culture: What is wine culture? It’s the spirit of wine combined with food, family, friends,’s the experience. Slowing down the pace of life and taking moments to appreciate this experience is what we are hoping you find while enjoying our wines. A simplified lifestyle to be shared and savoured.
