Our Story

Our story is founded in our name.

Sangreal Estate Vineyard is a family-owned vineyard and craft winery that produces estate-grown & bottled wine in the traditional olde world Burgundian style with minimal intervention.

In olde French, Sangreal has two meanings:

  • • Sang Real – Royal Blood in connection with Prince Edward County
  • • San Greal – Holy Grail in the context of Pinot Noir, the Holy Grail of wine

About Us

Christian Morandin’s family comes from the Veneto region of Italy, where world renowned wines are made. Wine and winemaking is in his family’s blood.

His wife's family roots are deeply entrenched in Prince Edward County, beginning with Jacob Wannamaker, her mother’s ancestor born in Rednersville in 1798. After attending her family reunion in Ameliasburg, we decided to move to Prince Edward County.

Everything Happens in Three’s

We bid on 3 properties over 3 years before purchasing 33 acres on highway 33 in 2009. During the first year, we planted 3 acres with 33 rows of 3 varietals including Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. In our 3rd season, we planted more Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. That same year, we harvested 3 tonnes of grapes from each of the 3 originally planted varietals.

In our 9th season, we opened our doors to the public, offering 3 estate grown wines including:

  • • 2016 County Pinot Noir
  • • 2016 County Chardonnay Unfiltered
  • • 2017 County Pinot Gris

These and other wines are available at the winery under the Morandin Wines label. Free delivery is available in Ontario, with a minimum purchase of 6 bottles.

Our Wines

 

 

The hot and dry growing season of 2016 resulted in a low yield at 20.5 Brix. One tonne was hand picked from our estate. After a spontaneous ferment, this wine was aged 20 months in 80% new French oak barrels.

There are only 700 bottles available at $33.00, including deposit. Free delivery is available with a minimum purchase of 6 bottles.

"This is a very pale, almost rose-shaded pinot with a quite lifted of red currant, sour cherry, floral and spicy, toasty barrel notes. There is some volatility/acetone however, which I often find in County pinots, that comes across as sourness on the palate. It is light to mid-weight, very taut and juicy and packed those classic cool climate pinot sour red fruits. Good grip with fine tannin and classic County minerality. Excellent length."

Almost 2 tonnes were hand picked from our estate. After a spontaneous ferment, this wine was aged in 40% new French oak barrel for 10 months, and bottled unfiltered.

There are 1,400 bottles available at $30.00, including deposit. Free delivery is available with a minimum purchase of 6 bottles.

"This is nicely firm, balanced and well structure County chardonnay made in a reductive/oniony style that is popular with some, and not so much with others. It also shows lemon, fine toasty oak and pear/apple fruit. Good flavour intensity here set within that lighter, delicate County frame. The length is excellent. A solid inaugural effort from Chris Morandin, the newest resident on Greer Road in Hillier."

Over 1.5 tonnes were hand picked September 29 from our estate. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and 40% neutral French oak barrels using various commercial yeast strains, as well as wild yeast from the estate grown pinot gris.

There are 1,300 bottles available at $25.00, including deposit. Free delivery is available with a minimum purchase of 6 bottles.

"From a seven year old vineyard in the heart of Hillier at Greer Road and Loyalist Parkway comes a fine pinot gris with a mild but bright nose of peach, vague bready notes and fennel. It is light bodied with some creaminess and sweetness around rather tart, lemony acidity - very much a County taste profile. The length is very good with lemon dominating. Very well made. "
