It’s one of Niagara’s greatest treasures, and award-winning winemaker Gavin Robertson gives us an inside look into its creation. A graduate of Niagara College’s Winery and Viticulture Technician program (2011), Robertson is head winemaker at the College’s Teaching Winery, located at its Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus in heart of the region’s wine country. He demystifies the process of how Appassimento wine is produced — a style which has its roots in Northern Italy. Watch as Robertson expertly explains the process from harvest in the College’s Teaching Vineyards, to drying the grapes, to fermentation, and assessing the final product – the best part!
