Our name, Keint-he Winery & Vineyards, is derived from a native word. Keint-he was the name of one of the four Seneca villages in this part of eastern Ontario. The Senecas were one of the five tribes of the Iroquois. The word Keint-he was later francocized into, Quinte and used in English names such as, the Bay of Quinte.
Ever aware of the Burgundian vineyards we are trying to emulate, all of our vineyards were selected based on soil type, topography and sun exposure. These subtle differences are partly responsible for creating fruit that results in wine with superior style and quality. For this reason, we have three distinct satellite vineyards, each with their own unique personalities and characteristics.
