Let’s Sustain and Maintain
Earth Day is an annual event that was held on April 22 to demonstrate support for protection of the environment. It was first held on April 22, 1970 and now includes events coordinated globally including one billion people in more than 193 countries. The official theme for 2023 is “Invest in Our Planet.” The movement to protect the environment has never been more critical with sustainable practices on-going at Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery. Not just a mantra for a one day celebration, it’s a consistent battle cry for every human on the planet to do their part. We are certified by Sustainable Winemaking Ontario and are committed to minimizing the environmental footprint in the winery and vineyard. This is critical for the long-term preservation of both Ontario's Greenbelt, and the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Look for the sustainable symbol included on the back label of our wines. Sustainable agriculture initiatives include energy efficiency, judicious water usage, woodland preservation, wetland restoration and bio filters. Henry of Pelham’s wife, widow, and family patriarch, is honoured through this bubbly’s brand name. The traditional grape varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, from family-owned vineyards, are the basis of the Niagara based cuvée. After the secondary fermentation in the bottle, the wine is aged up to 24 months on the lees. With berry tones, round and perfumed, let’s celebrate sustainability with a glass and watch a steady stream of fine pinpoint bubbles mesmerize us. Enjoy solo or with smoked salmon paté. UK’s prestigious Decanter Magazine awarded it a Gold Medal at their World Wine Awards.
