"Lush yet linear, powerful but not at all fat, this wine is all about great tension, dignity and understated complexity. Just a magnetic red that keeps you swirling and coming back to it again and again. Try it. You’ll see."
96 Points - Carolyn Evans Hammond, The Toronto Star, November 2019
"18 months in French oak. Lovely nose, combining lavender, spice and dried herbs with berry fruit and some gravel and spice. The palate has some tannic bite and grippy structure, but also fresh fruit with nice black cherry, raspberry and red cherry notes. It’s fresh, but also has some fruit sweetness. Real finesse here, with structure that suggests this could age well over the next decade."

Founded by John Howard, Megalomaniac began as a project to help raise funds for the Kids’ Health Links Foundation. After the original vintage sold out within 90 days, John realized the impact the program might have and the idea of expanding nationally became a strategic opportunity. A second vintage was launched, and since then neither the winery nor the foundation has looked back.
Megalomaniac’s bold branding tactics are at the forefront of the winery’s success. What was originally thought to bring scorn upon the winery has managed to accomplish quite the opposite.
These bottles feature a series of faceless executives wearing the iconic bowler hat accompanied by a unique title generally associated with the Megalomaniac brand. The name itself comes from a brief story that can be found on the back of each bottle.
