Matos Winery & Vineyards is a family-owned and family-run business. In 2007, after spending much time researching the growing conditions and suitability of establishing a vineyard in PEI, Jim Matos and his family purchased a 50-acre parcel of land in St. Catherines. They applied the French concept of terroir – finding a place where the combination of soil, slope, sun exposure and the peculiar weather vagaries allow certain grape varieties to unfold their unique characteristics. To this end, they consulted with the finest European vintners who visited PEI to provide their expertise.

Winner of the 2011 Eastern PEI Chamber of Commerce Business of the year, Newman Estate Winery is a family run winery located in beautiful Prince Edward Island, Canada. The winery was built with help from the community and endless hours of volunteer labour. We are forever grateful to those who have dedicated their time to making Newman Estate Winery what it is today.
Winemaker and President, Mike Newman was born in 1981 in Moncton New Brunswick. His mother’s side of the family is from Prince Edward Island and the family ties are the main reason for the winery starting on PEI. He has a Bachelor of Engineering Degree from the University of New Brunswick, a Master of Business Administration degree from Carleton University and a winemaker certificate from the University of California – Davis. He currently runs the winery in the summer months and is still a contractor in Engineering during the off-season.
Island Honey Wine Company
Address: 820 Millboro Rd Rte 243,
New Glasgow, PE
Phone: (902) 626-9362
The Island Honey Wine Company opened on July 2017. It is situated in the scenic rolling hills of Prince Edward Island between Charlottetown and Summerside in the quaint village of Wheatley River.
Charles and Laura Lipnicki are the owners of “La Serena Farm” where the Island Honey Wine Company stands today.
This little piece of certified organic paradise tries to echo the harmony found in nature. A small herd of sheep mow the grasses and bring fertility to the living soils of the orchards. A free ranging flock of colorful ducks challenge the insects and pests that try to enjoy the fruits of farm labor. A friendly Great Pyrenees dog named Abby welcomes visitors as long as they have two legs, not four. She protects the livestock from coyotes and foxes. There are also several thousand honey bees that make this place their home and they are responsible for fruit pollination and honey production.
