a small Daniel Lenko Sign on Rd 81, Beamsville

this is the tasting room
but should have taken a photos of the Porsche and Mustang
each being loaded with a case of wine
accompanied by Daniel Lenko, great talking to s noted winemaker
who welcomed us and led our tasting
of his fine wines

then like the previous visitors,
we loaded our case of 2004 UNOAKED CHARDONNAY
(by case of 12 only) Gobs of pineapple, lime, lemon and peach aromas.
The fresh, inviting nose leads to a massive, round texture
with a mineral/flint base typical of unoaked chardonnay

btw. photos and letters of/from various Governor Generals ;-)
adorn his small tasting ~sales room

Qaulity and Quantity

very commercialised winery
but worth a long visit with all one expects
for an educational visit

amazing Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan very visible
very Consumer and Tourist orientated;
they must sell a large percentage
of their Ice Wine to Japan !

Alsace influence
