Love the wines of Spain?  How about the best of our own Niagara Peninsula?  

Current choices from Niagara include Vidal, one of our most aromatic white wines from last year, and our award winning Niagara Meritage blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

From Spain, we still have Syrah, Tempranillo, Merlot, Grenache Noir, Carignan, Grenache Blanc, and our Spanish White blend of Grenache Blanc, Muscat and Macabeo.  The great diversity and high quality of our grapes allows us to make traditional Spanish blends, and emulate the wines of Cotes Du Rhone and Langed’oc, Bordeax, even the classic Cab/Shiraz blend from Australia.  Love wine?  Then enjoy wines that outscore $30.00 bottles, yet pay only a fraction of the cost!

  Make them all using the services of a Master Winemaker (Wine Judges Of Canada).

Operating since 1993, Fermentations has been featured in The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, Breakfast Television, City Pulse 24, and TV Ontario. Even Richard Best, member of the Wine Writer’s Circle of Canada and author of The Frugal Oenophile newsletter, appreciates Fermentations. Why? Just look at our credentials: Certified Master Vintner, Wine Judges Commission of Canada, and winner of numerous national awards.
