The vineyards of Avondale Sky are located on gentle southern slopes on the Avon Peninsula. Avondale Sky officially opened its doors as a winery in October of 2011. Stuart Creaser and Lorraine Vassalo bought the former St. Matthews church for $1.67, the same price the congregation paid for the building in 1844.

In May 2011, the Carpenter Gothic-style building was lifted off its foundation and transported down the coast atop a car ferry. Today the former church is the retail shop at Avondale Sky. Many of the other buildings on the site have been re-purposed as well. Winemaker, Ben Swetnam, a Nova Scotian who graduated from the Niagara College Winery and Viticulture program is the winemaker and he crafts wines for a broad range of palates.

The Coutinho family bought Avondale Sky Winery and Restaurant at the tail end of November 2019 from Stewart and Lorraine with the intentions of keeping their dream alive and growing what is already an excellent winery. Karl, Jaime and Sean will be the energy and vigour behind the business while Louis and Avila support in a range of capacities from the books to riding the tractors. We are very excited to continue the family owned and operated winery and continue to keep the focus local and sustainable. 

Tasting Notes

Aromas of pear, apple and melon.  Off dry on the palate with medium plus acidity, lovely tropical notes and a mineral finish.
