HENRY OF PELHAM

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada

The story of Henry of Pelham winery begins in the late 18th century, when their great-great-great grandfather was granted the very land their vines grow on today. Six generations later, this family farm in the Short Hills Bench sub-appellation of Niagara Peninsula has blossomed into one of Canada's most eminent wine regions. Representing nearly two-thirds of the country's wine grapes, the peninsula owes its viticultural fame to the moderating effects of Lake Ontario and the protective barrier of Niagara Escarpment.

Aged in American oak barrels for over six months, the sipper will enjoy structure and complexity. - Featured in Eater Wine Club March 2024

Pair it with barbecued meats, strong cheeses, cured meats, or even strawberries and black pepper for a surprising delight.

Bright, pristine fruit, with crisp Anjou pear and juicy Okanagan white peach that are heightened by white orchard blossoms and fragrant Madagascar vanilla bean. Additional depth and complexity come from gracefully aging for 18 months in traditional Austrian oak casks, rounding the fruit with a subtle imprint of honey while providing a rich texture that’s harmoniously balanced by the crisp, saline finish.

Q&A WINERY

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada

 

Ten years ago a couple from Slovakia, both winemakers, decided to move to Canada because of our show Hollywood and Vines. They opened a winery in the Okanagan and our paths were crossed forever. It was destiny.

Two years ago, we decided to put this beautiful story in a bottle. We started by questioning everything – the smallest decision, the most trivial detail – to try to create a wine that has every answer. Now you can hear what it has to say.

It’s a wine that has a lot to say. But it does so elegantly, almost quietly. It doesn’t demand your attention. It earns it.

Now, we can’t wait to share it with you.

Sincerely,

Jason Priestley, Actor/Director , Terry David Mulligan, Broadcaster ,
