Ontario Wine Society - London Chapter Presents Burning Kiln Winery: A Taste...
As the focus of agriculture in Norfolk County has shifted away from a predominance of tobacco crops, Burning Kiln Winery has repurposed, and architecturally reconfigured an original tobacco pack.
Burning Kiln Winery has adopted the ancient appassimento method in winemaking which is the technique of drying fully ripe grapes on mats or slated crates for a period of time before fermentation. With the land formerly being usedto farm tobacco, the Winery has chosen to use their tobacco drying kilns to dry their grapes.
This method helps to accentuate the sugars, boost the acids and balance the tannins allowing for a deeper colouredand fuller flavoured wine to be produced. Burning Kiln Winery is an innovator in the wine industry with this drying method for the grapes.
Join us on Tuesday, November 29th for a wonderful evening of wine tasting with each wine paired with hors d'oeuvres to enhance their flavours.
Reception begins at 6:30 pm and the tasting starts at 7:00 pm.
