HIdden Bench’s Winemaker Marlize Beyers readies herself for the upcoming harvest.

As part of a short miniseries we decided to grab the opportunity to visit some of our Good Food Fighter wineries in Niagara just as the 2013 harvest began. Although all of the wineries welcomed us with open arms, it’s a really tricky time of year for each and every Winemaker, and so we seriously thank all of the people involved for indulging us.

Obviously attempting to see everyone over the course of one day’s travel was impossible, but next year we plan to do exactly the same in Prince Edward County.

Second up is Winemaker Marlize Beyers at Beamsville Bench’s Hidden Bench Winery, who was just about to get in the vineyards to pick some Pinot Noir… and it looked pretty good to me!
