2019 Winemaker of the Year
Joy at Featherstone! And we’re not talking about our Cuveé Joy Sparkling wine this time – although there is definitely some of that in our glass! At the 2019 Ontario Wine Awards presentation our very own David Johnson was named Winemaker of the Year. He’s humbled and overwhelmed, and pretty darn happy! The timing is great – in 2019, the Ontario Wine Awards celebrated their 25th year, and here at Featherstone, we celebrated our 20th vintage. We’re appreciative that David’s talent and hard work are being recognized, and of course, David is quick to share the accolades with our fantastic team.
Award winning wines, grown naturally, on the Twenty Mile Bench in Niagara’s Twenty Valley.
Featherstone Winery is a tiny family operated winery where we grow, produce and bottle the grapes grown in our own vineyard. Our vines are situated on 23 acres of rolling hills on the Twenty Mile Bench along the Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada.
We farm naturally and without the use of insecticides, growing wine in a way that is healthy and completely unique. The result is bright and complex small-lot wines crafted to express the singular nature of our premium site in the Twenty Mile Bench appellation.
The majority of our wines are only available regularly from the winery. However, we frequently have listings in the Vintages section of the LCBO. www.vintages.com
