Villa Conti Oak Heights Estate Winery
A true gem, Villa Conti is nestled in the rolling hills of Northumberland County, situated on a 100-acre property, which includes 35 acres of vines. Villa Conti was started by an Italian chef, Tommaso Conti, who creates the life he knew as a child in rural Italy - with a Canadian twist. Here he combines his knowledge of wine making and talent for preparing the rustic Italian dishes that he loves to share with others. Tommaso plans to grow fruit and vegetables, and raise animals on the 100-acre property, as well as tending to the vines.
