Wines Fit for a Prime Minister
Founded in 2001 by Norman Hardie, this Canadian vineyard has gone from strength to strength and is now served in top restaurants in every major city in Canada, America and across the world.
It has even gained endorsement from the Canadian Prime Minister himself!
The vineyard is located in Prince Edward County, which is well-known for its unusual way of protecting vines during the cold winter months, when temperatures can plummet to as low as -20C.
The process involves surrounding the vines with a small trellis, which is then covered with earth ploughed up by a tractor, burying the vines so they can survive the worst of the cold.
In the spring, the tractor returns to 'shave down' the hills and uncover the sleeping vines in time for the next season.
