The Wild & Inspired wine series is a commitment to making exceptional natural wild ferment wines at Georgian Hills winery from grapes grown and hand harvested at select vineyard sites in the Niagara Peninsula wine region.
Wild & Inspired wines tell a story of terroir; a reflection of soil, climate and the passion and creativity of the people that grow the grapes and make the wines.
Craig Wismer, Wismer Vineyards, 20 Mile Bench, Vineland. By using meticulous viticulture practices, low cropping and hand-harvested fruit, the Wismer Vineyard soils, mostly of sedimentary clay / glacial gravels, are blessed by warmer escarpment air flow and even ripening.
Thomas Bachelder, the Canadian ‘Terroir Gypsy, is the Chief Wine Advisor on the Wild & Inspired wine series. Thomas selects inspired grape growing sites, ensures optimum grape ripeness and working together with Vanessa McKean, Georgian Hills wine maker, create naturally wild-fermented wines.
