Angela & Melissa Marotta

A deep passion for winemaking and connection to family

Situated on the northern tip of the Niagara River, Angela and Melissa Marotta’s sprawling 130-acre property and luxurious neoclassical estate is one-of-a-kind in the region, evoking the beauty, charm and ease of Italy, the Marotta family’s home country.

A dream turned reality, the sisters had always envisioned bringing the magic of Italy to the Niagara region they know and love. Angela and Melissa fondly recall family picnics as children in Niagara, often passing by the now Two Sisters property. When it became available, their family purchased the land and hasn’t looked back since.

“The beauty of the landscape, the fertility of the land and the history of the area captured our hearts. Here, we were able to create a place that captures a little bit of the romance, architecture, food and wine of Europe here in Niagara-on-the-Lake,” share the sisters.

Angela and Melissa now make memories in the region with their own children at Two Sisters. Recalling their own special moments with family in Niagara, it was important to them to create a place to draw other people out to experience the region and savor life’s little moments.

“Niagara is the perfect place to experience with loved ones, family, children or friends. We love Niagara and want to be sure everyone visits because it’s so easy to get hooked on the beauty, friendly people, history and agriculture that it offers,” says Melissa.

Personal Marotta family touches are echoed in nearly every facet of Two Sisters Vineyards inside and out. From the works of art that line the walls of the estate, hand-picked by their mother Louisa during trips back to Italy, to the menu at their critically acclaimed restaurant Kitchen76 filled with cherished family recipes, to the vineyard’s emblem featuring seven grapes, representing their seven children—everything is a labour of love and of family.

Angela and Melissa are just as committed to family as they are to their vineyard. “Our goal from the very beginning was to produce the very best Ontario wines that we can from our terroir,” says Melissa. Clearly, it’s paid off, as the winery was recently awarded “Best Performing Small Winery” at the National Wine Awards of Canada.

Come winter, their award-winning wine offerings don’t stop. As the temperatures drop below freezing, visitors flock to Two Sisters to sip their world-class icewines. Melissa notes a particular crowd pleaser is their Riesling icewine, aptly nicknamed ‘Liquid Gold.’ Paired with Kitchen76’s savoury cheeses and decadent desserts, it’s easy to warm up to winter with a visit to their winery.

No matter what season you visit Two Sisters, Angela and Melissa ensure you’re taken care of in their second home with every sip, bite, sight and experience. You’ll often find both sisters greeting guests and sharing stories with visitors far and wide, welcoming them into their slice of Niagara paradise, just like they would family.
