The Good Earth Winery

The Good Wine is born in our petite lot vineyards nestled at the foot of the Beamsville Bench in Twenty Valley. This region is gaining international recognition for the quality of wines produced and we are proud to play a part in the growth of Niagara’s wine country.

Our wines are predominantly crafted from Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc grapes from our small lot vineyards. The grapes are tended by gentle hands: hand pruned and thinned judiciously to produce very low yields of quality grapes. They are harvested by hand and transformed into VQA wines that complement the foods of the seasons. This makes them a fitting addition to any feast.

The Good Wine: Reds & Pinks

Aria Sparkling Rosé

VQA Ontario, $28.95

Dry, Residual Sugar 11 g/L, ABV 12.5%

Think of your Granny’s strawberry shortcake! Beautiful nose of fresh field berries, with hints of clover, pomegranate, honey, clementine and fresh-baked scones on the finish. The palate has a delicate mousse with the fine bubbles highlighting flavours of orange blossom, rose petals and lemon drop. A fresh sparkling with a creamy, bready midpalate and elegant citrus finish. Beautiful!

2018 Rosé

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $17.95

Off-Dry, Residual Sugar 7 g/L, ABV 12%

Lovely eye-catching salmon in colour, this fresh and brilliant rosé has aromas of strawberry compote, wild raspberry, floral notes and a whiff of vanilla. The palate is both fresh and tart, with a red berry fruit bowl of flavours. A delightful balance between sweetness and refreshing tart acidity. This Rosé screams for a patio!

2016 Pinot Noir

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $28.95

Alc./Vol.: 12.2 %Residual Sugar: 3 g/L (Dry)

This is one classy number! Elegant nose of raspberry, beetroot, and sweet floral notes. Light to medium-bodied on the palate with a lovely silky texture, this wine has bright flavours of red cherry, strawberry, clove and a hint of rhubarb. If summer was red wine, this would be it!

2016 Merlot

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $34.95

Alc./Vol.: 13.9% Residual Sugar: 3 g/L (Dry)

100% Merlot with beautiful aromas of raspberry jam, sour cherry compote, cedar spice and fresh rosemary.  The wine drinks like any good Merlot should, with a lush texture accented by mellow tannins and delicate acidity.  Flavours include red currants, cherry and red liquorice accented by spicy oak and savoury vanilla on the finish.  Decant if you would like to enjoy now or let this one mellow until 2019.

2016 Cabernet Franc

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $28.95

Alc./Vol.: 13.5% Residual Sugar: 3 g/L (Dry)

Cabernet Franc that shows some serious sophistication! This Cab has a lively, aromatic nose of cherry and raspberry along with lavender, anise and subtle spice that is sure to please. The palate is medium-bodied showing an old-world structure with firm tannin and balancing acidity. Expressive flavours of leather, spice, dried cherries and raspberry and fresh herbs. This wine is rustic, complex and will definitely benefit from some time in bottle; enjoy now to 2021.

2016 Big Fork Red

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $21.95

Alc./Vol.: 13.1% Residual Sugar: 3.8 g/L (Dry)

Our signature red blend comes out swinging with floral and mineral notes on the nose, followed by bright red currant, licorice, cherries and deeper aromas of plum and anise. An elegant palate that is medium-bodied with flavours of wild strawberry, fresh pepper and fig, wrapped up in soft tannin and delicate acidity. A great companion at the barbecue!

2016 Syrah

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $38.95

Dry, Residual Sugar 3 g/L, ABV 13.7%

Honours at 2018 InterVin International Wine Competition

A classy red with an expressive nose of lavender and baking spice as well as cracked pepper, leather, meat, and black fruits including damson plum, blackberries, and black cherries. The palate is equally elegant with a silky texture and a medium body. This wine finished well, with soft tannins and delicate acidity. Wonderful to imbibe now, but will continue to develop into 2023.

The Good Wine: Whites

2018 Riesling

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $19.95

Residual Sugar 15.8 g/L; ABV 10.5%

Niagara Riesling is a beauty to behold, and this lovely bottle is no exception! Fresh, generous nose of freestone peach, lime zest, grated ginger and a hint of minerality. The palate has a lot to discuss: An abundant mix of flavours, dominated by grapefruit, granny smith apple, and hints of orange, all wrapped up with zesty acidity. Gorgeous in its youth, this wine will also be wonderful with some ageing time in bottle (could go 10+ years) for added complexity. Best of both worlds!

2018 Pinot Grigio

VQA Beamsville Bench, $17.95

Dry, Residual Sugar 5.0 g/L, ABV 12.9%

The latest release of our Pinot Grigio boasts a lovely nose of rosewater, strawberry, white peach and a hint of honeydew melon – aromas bright, clean and pure! This wine has a mouthfeel that is medium-bodied and soft with a delicate, clean finish. Flavours include Honeycrisp apple, bosc pear, orange zest and a dollop of honey. A light acidity on the finish brings this wine home to an ultimately satisfying conclusion.

2018 Betty’s Blend,

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $17.95

Dry, Residual Sugar 9 g/L, ABV 11.5%

Betty is a beauty of a blend! This combination of aromatic varietals pushes a citrusy nose with juicy bits of lime, lychee, grapefruit and sour candy. In the mouth, you get a lively citrus-infused palate with a rich middle and crisp finish. Pear, apple, and ruby red grapefruit are the dominate flavours, with a creamy, brady note lingering beneath. The wine is fresh, clean and crisp; a great bistro-style white perfect for all occasions.

2017 Viognier

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $28.95

Dry, Residual Sugar 3 g/L, ABV 14.6%

Nothing warms the heart like a bold, aromatic Viognier! Beautiful nose with rich notes of honeysuckle, mandarin orange, marzipan and fresh grapefruit rind. The palate is delightfully creamy and rich with balancing citrus acidity. Lush flavours of candied citrus, orange marmalade and subtle tropical notes including star fruit and guava. A complex and rewarding taste experience from beginning to end!

2017 Gewürztraminer

Honours – 2017 InterVin International wine Awards

VQA Beamsville Bench, $21.95

Dry, Residual Sugar 7 g/L, ABV 13.9%

Add a little spice to your life with our amazing Gewürztraminer! A wallop of lychee nuts, rosewater, a ripe apple on the nose. The palate continues to impress with redolent poached pear, pineapple, mandarin oranges and starfruit all packed into a full-bodied, creamy-textured wine with a lingering spice on the finish. Exotic, complex and well balanced!

2016 Chardonnay

VQA Beamsville Bench, $26.95

Silver Medal at the 2018 Intervin International Wine Awards

Fall in love with Chardonnay again! A beautifully balanced nose of hazelnuts and spice beneath bright pineapple, melon and pear aromas. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied and richly textured.

2017 Unoaked Chardonnay

VQA Niagara Peninsula, $17.95

Residual Sugar 3.9 g/L, ABV 12.8%

Chardonnay minus the oak to highlight the grape’s lovely fruit and delicious flavours. Peach, granny smith apple, ripe pear and a lemon zest make up a lovely mix of aromas on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture that is perfectly balanced with a fresh crisp finish. Flavours of Niagara stone fruit, apple blossom and honey dominate the palate. Lovey with a variety of light dishes or equally enjoyable on its own!
