The Guild is pleased to welcome Paul Speck, President and co-owner of Henry of Pelham for this special evening. Henry of Pelham on the Short Hills Bench in Niagara has some of the prime grape growing lands and focuses on vinifera grape varieties, although their Baco Noir is one of the finest anywhere. A founding member of the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA), Henry of Pelham has won numerous domestic and international awards, including at VinItaly and the London Wine Trade Fair. Paul will introduce some of the premium wines from the Estate. We also hope to have a mini-vertical that will let us explore the effects of climate on the wine. Paul will also bring us up-to-date on what is happening at Henry of Pelham and in Niagara. Many Guild members know Daniel, Paul?s brother and a member of the Guild?s Board of Governors. Please note this event will begin at 6:30 p.m. sharp. We look forward to seeing you there!
As we anticipate this event will sell out quickly, we are initially limiting sales to members only.
Members: ($35+HST) $39.55

The Guild’s Annual General Meeting is part business and part social event. A (very) brief summary of the year’s activity and financial status will be followed by an election to fill Board of Director positions being vacated for 2013-2014. While the votes are tallied, members will be given an opportunity to provide feedback about the Guild and Guild events and address questions to the retiring Board. This will be followed by a reception where food and wine will be served. We look forward to seeing you.
This event is for Guild members only.
There is no charge for this event but you need to register at http://ncsg-agm-2013-05-29.eventbrite.com.
