CELEBRATING OUR SHADY ROOTS
The Bootlegger Baco Noir 2020
During Prohibition airplanes would visit the estate to collect whiskey and wine made in local barns. A throw-back to times gone by, this high-flying wine is ripe and juicy.
- The grapes were harvested in late September.
- 20% barrel aged in 100% American oak.
- 80% aged in stainless steel tanks to create the perfect balance between oak and fruit.
The Goat Lady Chardonnay 2020
This wine is named after Marion who kept goats next to the vineyard when the Speck Bros. were children. Marion fed their dog Boswell warm bowls of fresh goats' milk and it didn't take long for him to abandon them and move in with her. A creamy rich Chardonnay that keeps you coming back for more.
- 100% Chardonnay.
- Fermented and aged in American oak for 7 months.
- Partial malolactic fermentation produces a creamy rich mouthfeel while maintaining freshness.
The Padré Cabernet-Merlot 2018
Before starting a winery with his three sons, Paul Speck Sr. was a 'Padré'. This wine is made in his honour. A luscious and full red too sinful to be served in church.
- 100% barrel aged for 16 months.
- 60% French oak barrels and 40% American oak barrels.
- A mixture of new and older oak.

The Bootlegger Baco Noir
"The 2019 Speck Brothers Family Tree “The Bootlegger” Baco Noir exudes warm aromas of muddled blackberries and roasted mushroom before slipping over the palate with admirable purity of fruit. Lifted flavours flit from blackberries and raspberries to earthier allusions of mushroom, sweet tobacco and granite before leaving a dash of white pepper and sea salt on this finish. This well-made, complex wine hangs together beautifully and offers much pleasure for a low price."

The Goat Lady Chardonnay
“A beautiful, bright and vibrant Chardonnay. This wine has undergone partial malolactic fermentation contributing to a creamy texture, but still with a lot of vibrant, fresh fruit. Aromas of golden apple and pear with a hint of honey, Medium+ bodied on the palate, with great balance of fruit, acidity, and creaminess. All this at an excellent price too! Enjoy with scallops or any rich seafood, or classic herb-roasted chicken.”
The Padré Cabernet-Merlot
"A seriously gorgeous Niagara red wine blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. This wine was matured for 16 months in French and American oak barrels. Aromas of black fruit and smoke. Perfect for grilled meats.."
