My destination that day, though, was a small, boutique winery http://www.daniellenko.com/ located along the Beamsville Wine Route, a little bit north of Beamsville. Daniel Lenko is a third generation grower who continues the excellence his father started 40 years ago. Their Unoaked Chardonnay is a true treasure. The wines aren't sold in any stores, in fact the winery is only open for tastings on Saturday and Sundays. Other days by true chance. We took a chance that Daniel would be there and, hurray, the vintner was in! We were invited into the kitchen where tastings are offered of his various wines.
Don't miss the special bottling of the Unoaked ChardonnayGay. $1 of each bottle's purchase price goes towards AIDS research. http://www.canfar.com/en_CA/blog/wine-with-a-cause
