Pearl Morissette is a small winery, located on the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario. Fueled by an uncompromising vision that values tradition and the artisanal approach to wine growing since its very inception, it has established a reputation for delivering world-class quality wines of eloquence, elegance and finesse. All wines are in small production and come from vineyards maintained by a set of rigorous standards. The viticulture and viniculture are rooted in a low-intervention philosophy that honours sustainable practices and employs the old world approach of observing and responding to our environment.
The aim is to show the inherent beauty and complexities of the Niagara wine region through a transparent process of exploration and integrity and deliver wines of sensory richness, nuance and balance.
Svetlana Atcheva is a classically-trained sommelier who worked for many years in different Toronto restaurants, running wine programs that were well ahead of the times and influencing a number of young and now-established sommeliers. She encountered the wines of Pearl Morissette by chance in 2012, got bitten by the wine production and joined the winery shortly after. Svetlana has been instrumental in building and establishing Pearl Morissette as one of Canada’s most admired and respected wineries. She is widely known for the depth and breadth of her wine knowledge, her remarkable tasting ability, precise sense of quality, honesty, open-mindedness, irreverence and high energy. She is a Partner and the Brand Ambassador at Pearl Morissette winery in Niagara.
