I have two great announcements to share with you.
The first is the release of our first ever Whole Cluster Cabernet Franc. Whole-cluster refers to the method of fermenting grapes with their stems still attached, ensuring great purity of fruit. This can only be done in exceptional years where the grapes received a lot of sunshine. 2020 was a generous and robust year, so we seized the opportunity to experiment and see if we could raise the bar. Taking this risk has paid off exceptionally well. The wine has tremendous purity of fruit and amazing tension. Available for your enjoyment at the winery and home delivery from our online store. Only 8 barrels produced!
Once or twice a year we offer a very special auction item consisting of a private vineyard tour, barrel tasting and an epic multi-course lunch cooked by Norm for 8 people. Norm will also open up some gems from his cellar to pair. 100% of the money raised from this wonderful auction item will go toward helping Tanya Hassenberger’s second volunteer medical mission to Tanzania. Tanya was one of our many star employees. She started working for us as a slightly precocious young teenager in the kitchen/patio. Five seasons with us and a lot of long nights studying later, she is now an exceptional ER nurse. If the bidding is out of your budget and you would still like to make a donation, please feel free to donate here. Bid generously to win an experience of a lifetime here. The winner of the auction will receive a charitable tax receipt.
There is no better time than summer to enjoy our local wines alongside the amazing local produce Canada delivers. If you can’t make it out to beautiful Prince Edward County, we are happy to deliver our Ontario wines directly from our cellar to your door. We ship across Canada including Quebec, and mixed cases are welcome. Order here.
Thank you from the entire team for your incredible support.
Norm and the NHW Team
Our wines are served in 20 Michelin Star restaurants across Europe!
