Malivoire’s Shiraz Mottiar looking just a little anxious as the first fruit of the 2013 vintage is picked behind him.

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 days travel was impossible, but next year we plan to do exactly the same in Prince Edward County.

First up is Shiraz Mottiar at Beamsville Bench’s Malivoire Winery, who was in the process of picking his Pinot Gris, and it looked spectacular!
