BEAMSVILLE, ONJuly 30, 2019 /CNW/ – For those looking to make the most of their remaining summer days, look no further than Thirty Bench Wine Makers in Beamsville, ON. Considered one of Niagara’s first boutique wineries, Thirty Bench, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is a must-see for everyone visiting the Niagara region. Since the winery first opened its cellar doors in 1994, Thirty Bench has been crafting world-renowned wines receiving critical acclaim, including the recently awarded Gold Medal for the 2016 Small Lot Wild Cask Riesling and 2016 Small Lot Steel Post Riesling at the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

One of the most highly awarded wineries in Canada2019 marks the second year in a row that the winery has received top honours from the DWWA awards, the most prestigious wine competition, following the 2018 Best In Show for the winery’s 2015 Small Lot Cabernet Franc. This global recognition has allowed Thirty Bench to stand out at home and internationally, making the Canadian grown Riesling and Cabernet Franc among the best in the country.

“This is an incredibly exciting year for us. To celebrate 25 years of making delicious wine for all to enjoy is a great achievement,” says Emma Garner, Thirty Bench winemaker. “To add to that the global recognition that we have created one of the best Rieslings globally, let alone in Canada, is unbelievable. We couldn’t be more proud of the team here.”

Derived from the rich and unique Niagara Escarpment, the Wild Cask and Steel Post Small Lot Riesling wines are delicious illustrations of the benefits of thinking small. Crafting small batches of wines with grapes grown exclusively in their own vineyards is a philosophy that starts in the fields and is carried through every step of the winemaking process at Thirty Bench. This unique approach to wine production allows for a level of knowledge of and familiarity with each varietal.

To commemorate the anniversary, Thirty Bench Wine Makers is hosting an event on August 23rd to invite Canadian wine lovers to celebrate this milestone and achievement together. Guests will be invited to sip world-class wines while enjoying live music, entertainment and delicious eats.

“Everyone at Thirty Bench is thrilled to toast to this success with our guests this August,” added Garner.
