Norman Hardie

Norman Hardie first planted vines back in 2003, after spending six years at the best cool-climate producers around the world – from South Africa to Burgundy. Today Norm is a vinous celebrity the world over, and his wines are served at top restaurants in every major city in Canada, America and across the world.

The vineyards are located in Prince Edward County and Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, which has become renowned for its unusual methods of protecting vines during the freezing winter months, when temperatures can plummet to -20C. This process involves surrounding the vines with a small trellis, which is then covered with earth, burying the vines so that they can survive the worst of the cold.
