Dan and Lynn Sullivan, with support from Cam Reston (JCR), founded Rosehall Run in 2000. The 150-acre farm was selected due to its proximity to Lake Ontario (1-2 kms on three sides) and the remarkable clay soil scattered with rock and shale fragments on a calcareous limestone base. One of the earliest Prince Edward County wineries established in the west central region known as Hillier Ward; planting of the vineyard began in 2001 with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Today there are 25 acres of vinifera including Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Muscat and Tempranillo. Rosehall Run has always been a working farm; in 2001 operations were established to accommodate the needs of an efficient and utilitarian grape growing farm, and subsequently a winemaking operation. A modest barn was first constructed as a grape processing, wine production and barrel storage facility. A focus on state-of-the-art winemaking led to the design and construction of a 7,200 sq ft winery facility and barrel cellar blasted deep into the limestone foundation. Finally, in the original winemaking facility, a modern Tasting Room was created, offering visitors a warm and inviting space to sample Rosehall Run’s critically acclaimed wines.
