Alex Baines

Alex was promoted to Winemaker in March 2022 and has been a part of the team since January 2017. Originally from England, he has over 15 vintages of experience at premium producers in California, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. He graduated from the Niagara College Viticulture and Winemaking program in 2015. The focus on quality and the multifaceted responsibilities associated with a craft winery originally attracted Alex to join our small winery team. Alex has a keen interest in organic and biodynamic viniculture and above all the attention to detail required to craft exceptional terroir driven and low intervention wines. When not in the cellar, Alex enjoys riding his motorcycle or playing soccer a couple of times a week.
