Our wines are made using raw materials sourced from, or as close to the farm as possible. In fact, most come from within a 50 Km radius, except for the wild blueberries; sourced in Northern Ontario and the cherries which are sourced in the Niagara region. We even grow our own ginger!
Small amounts of sulfites are produced naturally in the process of fermentation. In the wine industry, sulfites are sometimes added to kill off lingering yeast in order to prevent secondary fermentation once the wine is bottled. We feel that this overuse of sulfites can ruin the taste and overall experience of enjoying the wine for many consumers. Sulfites can cause a burning sensation in the throat, headaches, as well as general discomfort for particular consumers.
This approach enables us to serve the best tasting wine to as many people as possible!
