Rosewood Estates & Rosehall Run
The distance between Rosewood Estates Winery in Beamsville and Rosehall Run Vineyards in Wellington is about 3 and a half hours by car, but while these similarly named wineries share a common goal of producing world class Pinot Noir, they do it in two of the most exciting, distinct, and dynamic winegrowing regions in the new world.
Starting with a comparative blind tasting of 2017 Pinot Noirs led by Rosehall Run winemaker Dan Sullivan and Rosewood winemaker Ryan Corrigan, they’ll discuss some of the winemaking decisions made when crafting these wines, from vineyard to glass. Then we’ll dig deep into our cellars to share some well aged examples of Pinot to show how our winemaking styles have changed, developed, and adapted over time.
You’ll taste 2 samples of 2016 Niagara grown Pinot Noir – one made by Rosehall Run Vineyards, and one made by Rosewood Estates Winery. We’ll share our experience of how Niagara Pinot Noir fares in warmer vintages, and talk about how these wines should continue to develop in bottle over time.
