We had a dream to create a wine that would set a new benchmark for winemaking in Niagara-on-the-Lake. And in 1989 at Hillebrand Winery, Trius was born.
We selected the best Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes and perfected the art of the blend in a wine simply called 'Trius Red'. Just two vintages later, Trius Red won the trophy for the best red wine in the world at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London, UK.
Over the years, our Trius family has evolved to include best selling single varietal red and white wines which showcase the unique, rich terrior of Niagara. Rich, elegant wines that continue to earn awards and accolades in every vintage. Every bottle exhibits the skill of our winemaker, with the rich, smooth, refined character that defines Trius. » View Collection
Showcase wines are truly a showcase of the talent of our Winemaker, Craig McDonald. Hand made in small quantities, Showcase wines express the character of the soil and the personality of the vineyard in the rich fruit we hand select.
Aged in individual barrels, our Single Barrel Chardonnays produce just 22 cases of each unique wine. No two barrels are ever alike, with the vineyard, forest and cooper written on each bottle, which is then hand numbered. A true collectors' item.
Showcase Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and the new Showcase Riesling are true luxury wines, each unique and unforgettable. We invite you to enjoy them. » View Collection

We are Niagara's Icewine pioneer. In 1983, we made the first Icewine ever to come from Niagara-on-the-Lake. In every vintage since, we have produced award winning Icewine that has brought home medals from competitions around the world. Our Icewine family has grown to include Vidal, Riesling and the beautiful ruby-coloured Cabernet Franc. » View Collection
