Frank in the
heart and development of Omega
Cellars centers around its founder, Frank Natsis.
It begins with an
idea that dates back many years – back to a time when Frank was
still a child living back in Artemision, Greece. Work ethic, dedication,
and attention to detail were instilled in this young boy as he
observed and helped his father tend to the
family farm. It was hard work, but then again, hard work is nothing
new to the Natsis family. Frank would often repeat to his children
as they were growing up, "there are no short-cuts in life; do
things the right way and you can later sit back and see how the fruits
of your labor have rewarded you.”
to Canada in 1960, that work ethic and attention to detail served
Frank and his family well over time. Frank became a successful
chef and restaurant owner, a career that spanned forty years.
Even with the success achieved in the restaurant business, the
yearning to “work” the land was still alive and burning within
him. Owning land and tilling the soil is a solid
foundation for creating a legacy. This is something Frank wished
to pass on to his children. Thus, in late 1990, the legacy began
- the original vineyard was purchased on Locust Tree Road and our
first vines, Chardonnay, were planted.
However, it became
clear that the family wished for more. “Why not make wine for
ourselves” became a repeated theme, and, as a result, the transition
from the restaurant business into the wine business took place.
Omega Cellars was established in 2002 by Frank and his two sons,
Jim and George.
