Henry of Pelham
Henry of Pelham has been family-owned for six generations. The original Henry of Pelham, as he nicknamed himself, was one of the first to plant grapes in Canada at their family farm in Ontario. In 1984, the family pulled up Henry's concord and Niagara grapevines to plant old world vinifera grapes. The gamble paid off, and their contouring hills of vines and soils with good drainage have led to many vintages of outstanding wines. The 300-acre vineyard is owned by brothers Paul, Matthew and Daniel, and the wine has been made by Lawrence Buhler since 2018. The vineyard was certified as sustainable in 2006 by Local Food Plus and they have followed world-leading standards set by Sustainable Winemaking Ontario since 2004.
