Potter Settlement Artisan Winery
Located on the very edge of the Canadian Shield - ‘Potter Settlement’s’ sandy, highly mineral terrain and organically grown grapes offers a unique selection of delicious and intensely flavourful wines found nowhere else in the world. High granite outcroppings surrounding our vines provide thermal mass creating a micro-climate which protects our grapes from wind and cold - as well as giving impressive views to the guests. In the future the winery will have an outdoor deck overlooking all the grape fields and surrounding forest. ‘Potter Settlement’ is a marriage of rustic, old-world charm with up-to-date wine-making techniques. The winery uses passive sustainable technologies in the production of the vintages. By situating the structure to incorporate thermal massing, passive cooling and ventilation, the structure need not rely on active technologies, as well as the production of the vintages, allow for a cleaner, more sustainable product.
