Keint-he Winery and Vineyards

I discovered what a 'relationship with wine' was about.  I experienced the pleasure of great Canadian wine. I found it at Keint-he Winery and Vineyards in Prince Edward County, Ontario.

Their name, Keint-he Winery & Vineyards, is derived from a native word. Keint-he was the name of one of the four Seneca villages in this part of eastern Ontario. The Senecas were one of the five tribes of the Iroquois. The word Keint-he was later francocized into, Quinte and used in English names such as, the Bay of Quinte. The painting used on their amazing label is called, Canoes in a Fog, Lake Superior. The piece was done by Canadian artist, Frances Anne Hopkins (1838 – 1919).
