The PondView Story
We invite you to visit us at PondView Estate Winery in the Four Mile Creek appellation, nestled in the heart of Niagaras wine country.
As you sip any one of PondView's wines, you are tasting three generations of winemaking experience.
Our family-owned Niagara winery is headed by Luciano (Lou) and Adriana Puglisi, with a grape-growing tradition that's been handed down from one generation to the next. Our European sensibility is rooted in our Italian heritage and is a big part of the PondView experience.
The Puglisi Family Story begins in Sicily, many years ago.
The family first grew vines and produced their own wine, as many Italians did. When Giuseppe Puglisi emigrated to Canada in 1965, he brought with him his passion for grape growing and winemaking. His son Lou has been passed the torch, and he now carries on the family tradition. He has embraced this traditional art form and has cultivated some of the finest wines in the Niagara Region.
Lucianos enthusiasm and respect for the winemaking process, alongside his dedication and commitment to excellence, earned him the prestigious title of Grape King in 2008, awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture to the finest vineyard operator in Ontario.
The secret to the success of PondView Estate Winery is the long-held belief of the Puglisi family: Great wine is a harmony of earth and vine.
