"It's fascinating to hear what he says," declared J.L. Groux, winemaker at Stratus Vineyards. "This won't work for our young vineyards (with their high vigor), but it's fascinating to consider what they could be like in 50 years." Humbrecht's wines were as iconoclastic as he; a tasting of four village-designated rieslings from the 2005 vintage revealed wines of high alcohol (over 13%) along with considerable residual sugar in some cases.

J.L. Groux has been the senior winemaker at Hillebrand Estates for 15 years and was the O.W.S. Winemaker of the Year in 1998. He now is responsible for over fifty different wines each year.
Until recent years, Ontario wineries had not been building libraries of past vintages in sufficient quantities to provide for special tasting events. Therefore, we are fortunate to have purchased enough of two of their top wines for 100 members and guests. From 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001 we have Chardonnay "Lakeshore" and Trius Red. J.L. will be unable to lead us through the tasting.
