Curtis Fielding was a professional NASCAR driver, yet when his father began building the winery bearing the family name – Fielding Estate Winery, Curtis was intrigued by the new business. He tells us that he never looks back as he is having too much fun making wine!  Perched high up on the Niagara Escarpment, The Lodge as it is known is a must visit – it is a relaxed setting with an outstanding view of their vineyards & Lake Ontario.

Never heard of Pinot Gris?  Chances are you have as it is the same grape variety used to make the popular Italian Pinot Grigio wine.

Cheers & Enjoy!

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Crystal clear in colour with aromas of stone fruit (think peach, nectarine, pear), continues into the taste with a ‘zippy’ lime finish that continues long after your first sip.

Suggested Food Pairing: Sip on its own, serve with spicy food or with steamed mussels, BBQed chicken, pork chops or salmon or even shrimp.
