Create an itinerary including Mastronardi Estate Winery
Mastronardi Estate Winery, established in 2006, is nestled in the heart of Essex County! Owners, Eadie and Tony Mastronardi, along with winemaker Karl Lonsbery are dedicated to growing exceptional grapes and producing high quality VQA wines.

The 100 acre vineyard, originally planted over 25 years ago during the revival of wine production in Southern Ontario, produces many varietals of Vinifera. The vines thrive amongst 1000 + acres of vineyards in Southwestern Ontario, located along a peninsula that wraps around the north shore of Lake Erie. The moderating effect of the climate is ensured by the warm waters of Lake Erie, the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, which surround this peninsula. It is the location along the 42nd north parallel (similar to that of French Riviera, Mendecino California, Tuscany Italy and southern France) that gives Lake Erie North Shore the highest accumulation of heat units in Ontario each summer. This Lake effect along with abundant sunshine results in the high sugars and ideal acid levels of each varietal. Therefore, an earlier harvest is common.

  • Hubby and I had a short tasting on the patio overlooking the vineyard. By far our faves were the the sangria. Bought 2 bottles of each of the white and red. So tasty.

  • Coming from a very large family, we've had the opportunity to attend a multitude of wedding events at various venues. As this was our first time at Mastronardi Estate Winery, I'd like to take a moment to describe our experience. First, the setup for the wedding itself was elegantly understated in such a way as to allow the bride and groom to truly be the focal point amidst the backdrop of beautiful arbor and flowers. Moving on to the venue itself, large round tables with centrepieces that were pure perfection, comfortable seating and beautifully arranged dinnerware were a visual delight. I had heard many great things about the food at MEW prior to attending, and even with my expectations set high, I was blown away by the sheer taste sensations that they offered. By far the best meal we've ever had at a wedding! The floor itself was quite amazing with colourful light patterns lighting up the dance floor for everyone as they enjoyed the music. And finally, the staff. Friendly and professional, they moved through the venue like a well oiled machine. Quick to smile, always on hand, these employees are a credit to the service industry. As for the proprietors, they too were right there, quietly watching over the entire event, making sure everything was running smoothly and that all was well. Eadie and Tony provided a beautiful venue with a keen eye for excellence that made our nephew's wedding a flawless night to remember. Thank you so much!
  • Had an excellent tasting experience. She even gave us a tour of the wedding venue and volunteered information about decor and food. Lovely family owned vineyard. Sarah and Oaked chardonnay were fantastic. Thanks for the hospitality 🙂
