Producer Notes: Cave Spring was purchased in 1973, and its first plantings of Riesling and Chardonnay were made between 1974 and 1978, with the winery being officially founded in 1986. It is a pioneer in the Ontario wine scene and has been recognized as one of the best in the country on numerous occasions. They were also the first winery in Ontario to be certified as sustainable by Sustainable Winemaking Ontario (SWO)

Area Notes: The mineral rich soils and complex landscape of the Beamsville Bench provide ideal conditions for growing grapes. Sloping vineyards backed by the escarpment, moderating breezes and excellent drainage all contribute to the natural character of the wines from this appellation
