Like three good friends out on the town this wine is Merlot + Cab. Franc + Cab. Sauvignon: dark, juicy and delicious. Lots of lush berry flavours. The savoury flavours from oak aging add ambiance, like dinner by the fire in the den or the backyard. > Learn More
... one of Ontario's liveliest Sauvs, crisp and minerally with lots of grapefruit and grass smells - good enough to rival any from New Zealand. A good zingy stream of acidity runs right down the center of the tongue, while the citrus apple notes caress your tastebuds "¦ there's also hints of hay and grass thrown in for good measure. This is one of those lazy days wines "¦ you know the kind of day where the sun is beating down on you and all you have to do is lie there and take it "¦ with a glass of this in your hand, it'll make it even easier to take that kind of punishment. > Learn More
The wine was fermented completely in stainless steel with aging sur lie (on the yeast lees sediment) to bring complexity and depth of flavour. Bright and aromatic with flavours ranging from vibrant apple to citrusy grapefruit. True cool climate chardonnay character! > Learn More
Bright, white and out of sight; the triumvirate of Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. Long names and hard to pronounce, so we call this wine 'White'. Not just another single varietal wine -- why choose one grape when you can have three? Think lime citrus and apple freshness with a dash of lychee fruit, in that order. As someone said at a recent event, tastes like a sun-vacation. > Learn More

"Now that fashion has shifted from once trendy white blends to #roséallday, the brands like Family Tree that remain are ones that have stood the test of time. They’ve found an audience because they offer considerable charm and appeal — and, in this instance, solid value. This is a rich and rewarding blend of chardonnay, viognier, gewürztraminer and chardonnay musqué, with the majority fermented in stainless tanks to preserve freshness and fragrance, and a portion fermented and aged in oak barrels for increased complexity and texture. As a result, it’s nicely balanced, layered with flavour and refreshment, which makes it truly enjoyable with or without a meal. Drink now to 2022."

Enjoy the best of Cabernet and Merlot in a single glass. This Meritage or blend serves up soft, savoury aromas of raspberry, cherry, and spice with more subtle notes of mint and chocolate. On the palate, it's smooth, medium-bodied, and well-structured with fine tannins and an underlying sheen of acidity to balance out the fruit. Finishes with rich, lingering flavours. Overall, a smooth, easy-drinking red that can be enjoyed alone or paired with a variety of foods. > Learn More
For many"”and for many years"”the benchmark Baco Noir in Ontario hails from Henry of Pelham. Aromas of dark briary berry mingling with wisps of oak segue a balanced and fruity palate-coating wash of black raspberry and mixed field berry adorned with spice, espresso roast and racy, lively acidity. It's medium bodied with a generous mouth feel and a lip-smacking aftertaste. Give it a go with smoked, grilled ribs slathered in BBQ sauce, meat-laden pizza or stews.
4 out of 5 stars - WineCurrent.com, Feb 2012 (2010 vintage)
Bright, deep purple-red. Delicate aromas of red cherry and peppery blackberry, along with a touch of oak. Enters juicy and fresh, with blueberry jam, underbrush and black pepper flavors. Finishes moderately long and smooth, with modest complexity but a bright whiplash of fruit. Harvested between September 25 and November 3, fermented in stainless steel, then aged for six to eight months in American oak, roughly one-quarter of which was new.

"An opaque purple-black in the glass, this Reserve baco offers aromas of charred toast, rich dark berry fruit and gamy bits. It rolls over the palate in delicious waves of sweet-tinged, rich ripe flavours of cassis, black plum and ripe mulberry interlaced with savoury herbs and great pizzazz. It’s medium-full bodied with good mouthfeel and a long, balanced and delectable finish. The price-quality ratio skews well in your favour… pick up an armful."
Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery is an Ontario winery that released their first vintage in 1988. The namesake of the winery, Henry (Smith) of Pelham was an early settler in Upper Canada’s Niagara Peninsula. His father Nicholas, the first settler, was Pennsylvania Dutch and a United Empire Loyalist who sided with the crown during the American Revolution of 1776. We named the winery Henry of Pelham after great-great-great grandpa’s son, Henry, who we think had a pretty dry sense of humour, nicknaming himself “Henry of Pelham” after a British Prime Minister. He was quite the entrepreneur, building an inn and tavern on the property and operating a toll road. He raised sheep. And grew grapes—some of the first to be planted in Canada. Our tasting room and wine store are in Henry’s carriage house. In 1984, when our parents decided to replace Henry’s concord and Niagara grapevines with old world vinifera grapes, the Niagara wine scene hardly existed and there were a lot of naysayers—but we had done our homework. Heat scans proved we had the right conditions, and we bettered our chances by contouring the hills and installing drainage. At the time, we were one of only a few Niagara wineries to make premium wines from our own grapes.
