Date: Mar 27/12, Tue     Time: 03:30:00-06:30:00     Style: Drop-In

Cool Climate Icons: Churton (NZ) & Hidden Bench (Niagara)- Winery owners Mandy Churton (Churton Wines from Malborough, New Zealand) and Harald Thiel (Hidden Bench Winery, Beamsville, Niagara) led our members through their incredible range of wines.

We showcased these wineries together since they share similar philosophies towards viticulture and winemaking. Both boutique wineries farm their vineyards organically, and strive to make the best expression of their vineyards through their wines. A great tasting!!
