Update – Friday, March 13 – In light of Covid-19, Paul Speck has cancelled his visit to Edmonton, thus the scheduled tasting at deVines on Tuesday, April 7th is now also cancelled.

The land that Henry of Pelham Winery sits on dates back to 1794. An inn and tavern was built on this site in 1842 and the tavern’s liquor license was signed “Henry of Pelham” as a joking reference to a past British prime minister, Sir Henry Pelham. The name stuck. Paul Speck Sr. purchased the estate in 1982. Paul Speck Jr. becomes president in 1988 and helps to found the VQA (Vintners Quality Alliance) with a handful of other Niagara wineries.

The 300 acre estate is located in the Short Hills Bench sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula. Renown for its Baco Noir, a defacto Canadian classic and a Henry of Pelham classic, which will be featured prominently in the upcoming tasting with Paul Speck Jr. Do not miss this – its on Tuesday, April 7 @ 7pm – $30, its been 14 years since he last did an event at deVines and we are thrilled to have him. The thought of a 3 bottle Baco Noir faceoff is so enticing!
