Catherine Langlois,
Propriator, Sandbanks Estate Winery

Lake Ontario laps ashore in Prince Edward County, a rural peninsula that pushes out into the lake about an hour west of Kingston.  It’s a place to which Catherine Langlois had a chance visit in 2000, and it was love at first sight. Catherine, who had the opportunity to complete a work stint in the vineyards of Burgundy, France, bought 15 acres near the town of Wellington, and went about building what was only the fourth winery in Prince Edward County. Nearly 20 years later, Sandbanks Winery is a commercial success with 19 products listed at the LCBO, Ontario’s Liquor retailer, many of them award winning. In this episode we sit down with the remarkable and inspiring Catherine Langlois, and find out why she hates being the boss, and her philosophy on having a healthy work/life balance.
