What does that wine retail for?

Bryan: I'd also love to know where I might be able to get my hands on some.

I have been hearing about Movia all year. Time to find it and drink it...not crazy about possible exploding cork scenario but sounds worth it.

I can tell you all that opening it was a breeze - and totally cool. I'd love to do it again, but I'll definitely let someone else experience it next time.

Since I don't have four hands, Ev was the photographer that night - and did a great job. I've posted a few more pics to my Facebook page if you want to check them out. http://snurl.com/mdawsonphoto


Thirty Bench Riesling sells for $35 CA at the winery. 262 cases produced and dare I say none are exported to USA.

Sadly the only wines from Ontario I've seen in US are Cave Spring, Henry of Pelham, Inniskilin and a few others that are large enough to sell bulk.

The Beamsville Bench is one of several sub appellations on the Niagara Escarpment in Ontario, its limestone bedrock is ideal for lending serious minerality to its wines, especially in older vines.

Movia stuff rocks, I've only been able to get my hands on a the Vila Marija merlot and a pinot grigio.


Wow, I was mistaken about Movia. We enjoyed a bottle of Pinot Grigio last fall (it was spectacular, and I don't much care for that varietal), and a bottle of Ribolla this past winter (a bit of a letdown, if only because of the sky-high expectations). Puro was a blast. How was the Merlot?


Glad you asked.
