    ABOUT THIS WINE:

    Harvested on November 10th and fermented as 100% destemmed fruit in large concrete tanks. Fermentation by indigenous yeast proceeded steadily and completed by mid-December 2019. The wine was aged in a combination of concrete and large wooden vessels on lees for a total of 8 months.

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

    Canadian wines are definitely worth a try! François Morissette is making the most exciting wines in Canada that we know of in his small corner of Ontario. They are uncompromising wines of terroir that easily transcend the boundaries of the Niagara Peninsula; in his words, “I don’t make wine for Ontario, I make wine for the world." We love this producer because they incorporate organic practices and show a hint of Burgundian style in their wines!

    François’ career in wine began in his early 20s when he spent a year working for Domaine Alain Gras in Saint-Romain, learning about the traditional winemaking methods of the region. Once he moved back to Quebec, he worked towards becoming a sommelier and spent the rest of the 1990s building some of the most ambitious wine lists in both Quebec and Ontario. In 2000, the call of the vines was to loud to ignore and he moved back to France to pursue winemaking full-time, working for some of the most famous producers in the Côte d’Or including Frédéric Mugnier in Chambolle-Musigny, Christian Gouges of Domaine Henri Gouges in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Domaine Roulot in Meursault.  After 7 years in Burgundy, he returned to Canada with an eye to make his own wine using the knowledge he gained abroad, and it wasn’t long before he found a partner (Mel Pearl, a developer in Toronto) with whom to make it all happen.
