This month, we are featuring Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery in our Wine Club. With a rich history dating back to 1778, the winery is home to one of Canada's first vineyards. Sign up for the Wine Club today to get a beautiful selection of Henry of Pelham wine delivered to your home. You can expect to enjoy selections from outstanding red and white single-varietal wine to spectacular bubbly this holiday season. Continue reading for a glance at December's wine picks.
Along with a few other Niagara wineries, Henry of Pelham helped found the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) which manages the appellation of origin and quality. They were one of the first Niagara wineries to use their own grapes to produce premium wine, as well as the first vineyard to be certified as local and sustainable by Local Food Plus. Today, the Speck brothers continue to push the envelope in winemaking and viticulture and produce a wide portfolio of world class wine that showcases the famous terroir of the Short Hills Bench sub-appellation.
A monthly wine delivery is the perfect gift for your favourite wine enthusiast. Here's a sneak peek at some of the featured bottles in our December Wine Club packs.
