We have maintained a time honoured tradition by naming our sparkling wines after the widow and matriarch of the family. Named after Catharine Smith, Henry of Pelham’s wife, Cuvée Catharine is a hand-picked, bottle fermented sparkling wine that sees lengthy aging.

Cuvee Catharine Brut

Named in memory of Henry’s wife, widow and family matriarch, Catharine Smith. Clonal selection and the use of traditional grape varieties (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) makes this wine a modern Niagara expression of a time honoured wine style. The secondary fermentation is done in bottle and the wine is aged for approximately 36 months on the lees before disgorging.

Food matches

Salmon caviar with sour cream; Malpeque oysters with a hint of lemon.

Winemakers notes
  • Made from the blending of 70-80% Chardonnay with 20- 30% Pinot Noir
  • Hand-picked, bunch selected, then chilled for 24 hours
  • Partially filled baskets are hand-dumped with the grapes gently moved by gravity
  • All juice is press-fractioned to separate the finest cut
