Joseph's Estate Winery
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada

Joseph Pohorly, Ph.D. is a man of many talents and interests. One of his latest interests is grape seed oil. While on vacation in Florida, Pohorly noticed Italian grape seed oil being sold. That sparked his interest and ultimately research into producing grape seed oil. In addition he was interested in the possible health benefits of grape seed oils. After years of research and work, Pohorly produces grape seed oil available in the Joseph’s Estate Winery tasting room.

Joseph's Grape Seed OilFrom Seed to Oil Process

Pohorly uses a cold press method for producing the oils. A large amount of grape seeds are necessary to produce grape seed oil. With so many wineries in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region, plenty of grape seeds are available. Once the seeds have been collected and dried (pictured above), the seeds are put into a grinding machine, which extracts the oil from the seeds. The solid part is called a cake. At the time of our visit, Pohorly was sending the cake to farms to mix with feed for animals.

The resulting oil is placed in stainless steel tanks waiting for bottling.
