Martin Vagner, the proprietor-winemaker of Niagara’s smallest winery, Domain Vagners, siphons a sample of wine for inspection prior to bottling. Show next to Vagner is his entire production.
DOMAINE VAGNERS is truly a farmgate operation; handpicking, pressing, fermenting, and selling premium vinifera made wines through the “barn door” The limited production scale is just the way the former wine judge prefers it.
Vagners does not aspire to have a wine conglomerate knocking on his door. On most Saturdays, though, those doors are open to the wine curious, “roughly 10 to 3″.
