Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Southbrook Vineyards has–again!–been honoured for its ongoing commitment to produce outstanding organic and biodynamic wines.
On June 25, Southbrook Vineyards received the Environment Commitment Award for its Connect family of wines at the LCBO annual Elsie Awards for agents and suppliers. This award recognizes a supplier who raises awareness of environmental issues, promotes positive environmental action and generally makes the earth a better place to live.
Over 120 Farmers, consumers, businesses and individuals from across the organic value chain gathered in Guelph on January 27th 2012 to celebrate excellence in Ontario�s organic sector. These awards celebrated the achievement and dedication of growers and producers to provide consumers with the best quality food or wine while protecting Ontario�s ecological heritage.
This forward thinking winery is quickly becoming the household name in Ontario organic wines.A� With 150 acre property and only 50% of it under vine, Southbrook has vowed that they will not plant the remaining acreage until the demand for organic grapes in the area surpasses the supply.
They’re even helping local grape growers gain their organic certification with a promise to purchase the growers� grapes for their Connect wines–further supporting the local economy!
