Since opening day Fielding has gone on to win numerous awards including one of Canada’s top 10 wineries, many gold and silver medals at the National Wine Awards of Canada, a VQA Excellence Award and twice chosen as the official wine of the Ontario Legislative Assembly.

Wykes – Homebrew Pictures) that examines the history of Ontario’s unique distribution and retailing methods for beer and alcoholic beverages (including wine) and makes a strong and cogent argument for change.

Rick VanSickle, noted freelance wine writer and publisher of WinesinNiagara.com, will introduce the film, moderate discussion, and provide us with an update on new developments and possibly his view of what might be in the wind.
