Company Inniskillin (Inniskillin) was founded in 1975 by two enthusiasts non-Canadian origin - Austrian chemist Karl Kaiser and Donald Dziraldo, a young Italian, a graduate of the Canadian Agricultural University. They came to the conclusion that among Canadian wines there is a gap in the segment of "premium" in order to fill it, they are engaged in the production of high quality wines made from grapes grown in the Niagara Peninsula. Kaiser and Dziraldo planted the first vineyards in Ontario with varieties Riesling, Chardonnay and Gamay. A small building on the estate of the family Dziraldo was transformed into a winery. Despite all the difficulties and the conditions are far from ideal, produced wine has excellent performance and a high quality, immediately won recognition in Canada. But the real fame and world-famous company Inniskillin achieved in 1984, when they released their first Icewine (Eiswein).
"The real breakthrough is the discovery of Inniskillin Icewine. In 1991, their wine Vidal Icewine won the Grand Prix at the Legion Vinexpo in Bordeaux "- Hugh Johnson wrote in the World Atlas of Wine.
For the development and improvement of wine, as well as replenishment of the spectrum produced wines, in 1994, founded Inniskillin estate "Inniskillin Estate Winery" in the rich terroir wine region of southern Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
In pursuit of excellence, Dziraldo founded and headed «Vintners Quality Alliance» (VQA), a society designed to monitor the quality of wines produced in Canada and improve it. After various studies in the field of appellasonov worldwide in 1989 with the help of his colleagues introduced a system Dziraldo VQA. This made it possible to set high standards of quality and appellasony identify the most important wine regions of Ontario, the same system was adopted in British Columbia.
Today wines from Inniskillin can be found in the best wine shops and restaurants around the world, and even Icewine stored in the basement of the Imperial Palace of Japan.
