Epic stories begin with these words. Our story begins in early 2015 when André, a burgeoning wine writer, and Vadim, an assistant winemaker in Niagara, got to talking over a glass of wine about how great it would be if they made some Gamay Nouveau together. Learning just what it takes to go from vine to bottle, and seeing their passion transformed into their very own VQA wine was an exciting notion.
So André turned to his friends to help make this dream a reality. He posed the question; wouldn’t it be great if we made our own wine? Partner in (vinous) crime and shrewd with numbers. Guillaume was immediately intrigued, and Trish, a wine-neophyte keen to learn, was on board to invest. The bonds of friendship were now poised to see this crazy idea through.
The vision was to reflect in a wine the unique terroir and fruit of our region. To literally bottle the hard work it takes to make wine, give us a taste of what it takes to go from vine to bottle, and have something to share with friends, family, and whoever we could coerce into buying a bottle. You can now hold in your hands the results of this hard labour as we have moved on from gamay and shifted to Pinot Noir Rosé, and Chardonnay.
