About the winery

The name Nyarai (pronounced Na-Rye) is derived from the Southern African Shona dialect meaning Humility. Our aim is to craft wines that are sourced from prime Niagara Peninsula vineyards that speak proudly of their origin. With minimal intervention during the winemaking process, our wines develop naturally; yielding a product that is true to its varietal character. The cool climate of the Niagara Peninsula along with its diverse soils offers a bounty of flavours and textures that are indicative to this wonderfully unique wine growing region. In creating wines that bear the Nyarai Cellars’ name, careful consideration of ideal vineyard localities is paramount. The strength of individual appellations such as Niagara River, Lincoln Lakeshore and Twenty Valley Bench, were appealing to create a product of distinct character and elegance. A simplistic approach is followed during the entire winemaking process, which allows for purity-of-fruit to be the main focus. In order to achieve this, fermentation of our white wines is conducted at low temperatures in stainless steel to retain the delicate nuances of the fruit. Once primary fermentation is completed the wines are allowed to mature on their lees for complexity and stability.
