Our Mission

At Casa-Dea Estates Winery, we are dedicated to producing premium estates wines from the heart of Prince Edward County.

The Winery

We are located just off the historic Loyalist Parkway (Highway 33) on Greer Road, 9km West of Wellington in Prince Edward County. While we were the first winery on Greer Road we share the destination with two other recognized wineries – Norman Hardie Vineyard & Winery and Rosehall Run Vineyards. Some refer to us 'The Three on Greer'.  If you are coming to 'The County' from Toronto, we are the first cluster of wineries that you will come across on your way in so be sure to stop in and start your wine tour with three of the best 'The County' has to offer.

Our Founder

Domenic Di Pietrantonio grew up in the small village of Lettomanoppello located in the Abruzzi area of Italy. At an early age, Domenic left home to study with the monks and as he entered the priesthood, he was assigned to the wine cellar room at the monastery. The experience stayed with him and he fell in love with the true art of wine making— this underlying passion is why Casa-Dea Estates Winery exist today.

After immigrating to Canada in the 1950's Domenic found great success in the manufacturing industry but his passion to make great wine was still unfulfilled. It was this passion that took him back to Italy years later to study the art of winemaking (oenology/viticulture). Upon his return to Canada he started planting a vineyard on Cold Creek Road in Prince Edward County, which is still one of our production vineyards. In 2009, Domenic purchased a second vineyard and it's winery which is now Casa-Dea Estates Winery.

Inspired by Romance

Every business name has a story.

People often ask, "Why is the winery called Casa-Dea?". The answer is quite simple, romance. You see, 'Casa' translates to home in Italian and Dea means 'Goddess'. Dea also happens to be the name of Domenic's wife of 59 years. Casa-Dea translated: Home of the Goddess. The winery was named as a tribute to Domenic's wife. This story of romance is represented by the Goddess symbol on all of our products.

The 'coat-of-arms' that you see is our corporate-mark and also happens to represents Domenic's hometown village of Lettomanoppello in Italy. He received written permission from the village to use this emblem to pay tribute to his heritage and roots.
