Kelly Mason, Winemaker

Mason Vineyards


Winemaker Kelly Mason was born and raised in Montreal. Before establishing herself as a Canadian winemaker, her career began in 2007 in the Carneros subregion of Napa Valley with an internship at Saintsbury Winery under a Burgundian winemaker. After studying Winemaking at
Brock University, Kelly continued her focus on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as an intern at Tawse Winery followed by Le Clos Jordanne.

Kelly became a well sought after expert in Burgundian varietals which brought her first to the role of assistant winemaker at the esteemed Domaine Queylus, to becoming head winemaker in 2018. She came to also balance the head winemaker role for Honsberger Estates as well as The Farm winery for their five award winning vintages.
