In 1999, Denis Perrault, a local dairy farmer, started a grape growing operation on the family farm in Navan, just outside Ottawa. He originally planted 1000 vines on one acre. In 2005, an additional five acres were planted and that is when the dream of a vineyard was realized and named Domaine Perrault.
Bernard Martineau is the principal winemaker and Julie Ricard, a graduate of Algonquin college Sommelier program, joined the Perrault family business, run by Denis, his wife Lyse and their two daughters, Anne and Dominique. Wines from Domaine Perrault are featured at many reputable places in Ottawa including the Brookstreet Hotel and National Arts Centre.
Givopoly is pleased to feature a great selection of Domaine Perrault Wines including whites (Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc), reds (Rosalie, Shiraz and Cabernet-Sauvignon-Merlot) and a dessert wine.
