The southernmost part of the Niagara region is situated on and near the shores of Lake Erie. The tempering effect of this Great Lake keeps the surrounding area at a moderate temperature throughout the year. While summers are warm (average 21°C/70°F) and winters are cool (average -2°C/28°F), the high moisture content in the air contributes to high summer humidity and heavy winter snowfall.

The South Coast’s geographical location sits just below the Niagara Escarpment, a World Biosphere Reserve and unique appellation that adds a well-defined and refreshing style to the region’s famous wines. The silty clay soil that covers our agricultural land is most commonly used for grain farming and floriculture production.
