Burgundy super-fan Moray Tawse is smitten with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir on the Twenty Mile Bench. In 2005, he opened a handsome, six-tier gravity-flow winery, with three barrel caves carved into the Escarpment. Adding neighbouring vineyards expanded his range to Riesling, Cabernet Franc and Merlot; under the guidance of Burgundy consulting oenologist Pascal Marchand and Niagara-trained winemaker Paul Pender, these vineyards are being converted to organic and biodynamic production. The Tawse label—along with the winery’s Sketches line— is one of the most sought-after brands in Ontario, with a bushel of awards affirming its success. In 2009, Tawse placed a close second as Canada’s Winery of the Year at the Canadian Wine Awards.
