The winery Henry of Pelham is named after the current owners great-great-great grandfather, Henry, who had a pretty dry sense of humour, nicknaming himself “Henry of Pelham” after a British Prime Minister. He was quite the entrepreneur, building an inn and tavern on the property and operating a toll road. He raised sheep. And grew grapes—some of the first to be planted in Canada.
In 1984, the vineysards in the Niagara region where re-planted with old world vinifera grapes. Heat scans showed that the right conditions, conbined with the hills and a new drainage system enabled this Niagaran winery to make premium wines from their own grapes.
