Our Winemaking Team

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.


John Neufeld, Sr., Proprietor

John Neufeld, Sr., Palatine Hills Estate Winery, Niagara

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.

  • Year after year, it’s been our drive to express what we love about our land and the vines that grow here, and that really comes out in the quality of our wines. It’s our drive for distinction that keeps us innovating.
    - John Neufeld, Sr., Proprietor


Jeff Innes, Winemaker

Jeff Innes, Winemaker, Palatine Hills Winery, NiagaraComing 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.

  • We want our wines to be an elevating experience; a reason to feel good about what’s close to the land and the people who make the wine at Palatine Hills.
    - Jeff Innes, Winemaker
