For over 40 years the winemakers at Palatine Estate Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake have been blending the history of the artisan grape grower with the modern skill of the winemaker.
As co-founder of Palatine Hills Estate Winery, John Neufeld, Sr. has led the way as visionary for the vineyard and an innovator for the Niagara grape growing industry.
Under John's tutelage, the progressive team at the winery take what is tried, true and traditional about their time-honoured craft, and elevate the quality and experience of their wine with a modern sense of truthfulness to the land.
Palatine Hills is a family owned and operated winery in the truest sense, growing an impressive cultivated group of varietals.
Coming from a winemaking family similar to the vineyard’s founders, Jeff’s passion for the craft was born early and has propelled his almost 20 years of experience.
Jeff’s talent extends beyond the boundaries of modern and classical technique, and looks to the respective old world styles for inspiration. He continues the Neufeld family's award winning winemakeing tradition, creating premium and estate wines with quality as a standard, not a goal.
