Vin Villa is on Pelee Island, Ontario. Located in the middle of Lake Erie, south of Detroit Michigan, it is the southernmost inhabited land mass in Canada. Clayton Walls' great great grand father, William McCormick purchased a 999 year lease, from the Indian trader who owned it 200 years ago. It is where Vin Villa, Canada's oldest commercial estate winery was founded in 1866. There are two 18' x 60' underground wine cellars constructed of hand laid limestone on the site that is currently being reclaimed and refurbished as part of a master plan to construct a facility that will eventually hold fund raisers for charities.
