About a half an hour drive from the Otter Bay ferry terminal on North Pender Island, Morning Bay Vineyard & Estate Winery is situated high on the south facing side of Mount Menzies above Morning Bay.
Wines In India Once a single island - until a canal was dredged across what was a narrow strait of land in 1903 - North and South Pender Islands are today re-connected by a bridge that was built across that same canal in 1955.
Red Wine India Over an eight month season, with hand-tending and careful applications of water and nutrients, Morning Bay's wine grapes ripen slowly and develop complex flavours. Hand-picked from vines that straddle the steep terraced vineyards in late fall, these grapes retain bright, crisp aromas while developing lingeringly elegant flavours.
Wine To India
Roman copy of a statue of a Greek winemaker Greece once dominated the world of wine. Whether viticulture and winemaking originally started there or in ancient Phoenicia has yet to be determined, but the land we now know as Greece was the biggest single producer and exporter of wine from the 6th to the 4th century B.C. Wine was also central to Greek culture at the time, and aspects of wine enjoyment we take for granted today -- e.g., focused tastings, sommeliers, glasses designed for particular types of wine -- all developed originally in ancient Greece.
India Wines The Roman Empire took over from Greece as the world's leading source of wine even before Greece's conquest by the Romans in 146 B.C. Centuries of conquests and occupations, especially control by the Ottoman Turks from the mid-15th century until 1821, devastated Greek viticulture. The world wars and civil war that followed continued to retard the redevelopment of a Greek wine industry. It was only in the 1960s and 1970s that wineries and plantings seriously got going again. The rapid development of quality wines from Greece since then, however, suggests that Greece may once again become one of the world's leading wine producers.
Wines In India I had a chance recently to taste through new releases from many of Greece's top producers at a trade tasting organized by All About Greek Wine , a U.S.-based promotional group led by Sofia Perperas that has done much in the last nine years to educate the trade about the high quality and diversity of Greek wine.
