In 1999 a Navan Dairy Farmer named Denis Perrault planted 1 acre of grapes (1000 vines) of which there were 10 different varieties of hybrids. In 2005, with the help of a Vine Expert from the University of Guelph he planted another 5 acres (5000 more vines).
In 2005, the business was incorporated, and Winemaker Marcel Sarrazin was hired. The Winery was licensed in 2006, and now produces about 11,000 bottles of wine annually (white, red and rose blends).
Winemaker Marcel Sarrazin retired in September 2008, and was replaced by Bernard Martineau who has plans now to experiment with the different maturing varietals that grow in the Vineyard, so as to produce seperate vintages in the upcoming years. (Compiled from info on the Domaine Perrault
