As a 100% estate winery Hidden Bench only produces wine with grapes that we grow on one of our 3 estate vineyards. Since 2012 the Locust Lane, Felseck and Rosomel vineyards have carried the organic certification from Pro-Cert, one of Canada’s most rigorous organic certifying organizations.
As of the 2015/2016 vintage, Hidden Bench wines will also care this organic certification on their labels. This transition was relatively seamless for our winemaking team as our non-interventionist winemaking style has been and is perfectly aligned with requirements of organic certification.
Our goal is not to make organic wines but to make great wines that also happen to be organically certified. We are only stewards of the lands we farm and to be a certified organic and sustainable winery goes hand in hand with our legacy of sustainability. www.pro-cert.org
