Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery
May-Oct., Daily 10 am-6 pm
Nov.-Apr., Daily 10 am-5 pm
Daily 1:30 pm and by appointment
Founded in 1988 by the Speck family, Henry of Pelham is a reliable name in Ontario wine.Winemaker Ron Giesbrecht knows his Niagara reds, having turned a hybrid grape called Baco Noir into a local icon, but the Riesling Reserves (from maturing vines) and Chardonnays are also classics. Cuvee Catharine bubbly is quintessential Niagara; likewise, the Icewines are brilliant. A visit to the recently expanded winery and cellar is a Niagara history lesson. Picnic with local fare at the Coach House Cafe, and view works by local artists in the loft.
