Good Weather Translates to Good Wine


NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ont. — Near perfect weather has Ontario winemakers excited about one of the best seasons in years, reports the Toronto Star.

While 2007 was too hot, and 2009 too dry, 2010 has presented winemakers with a good mix of sun and rain — something that has some industry insiders optimistic about a good harvest. “I’ve never seen this in 25 years,” Bruce Nicholson, winemaker at Inniskillin in Niagara-on-the-Lake, told the Star. “We’re going to have world-class wines coming out of this year.”

According to the Toronto newspaper, the season kicked off on a high note in April, and now growers are beginning to harvest their grapes with ideal conditions — warm days and cool nights. While last’s year crop was large, despite weather setbacks, this year’s is expected to be abundant, producing high-quality grapes.
