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
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 have been 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.
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 12 bottles.
