Southbrook Vineyards Eco Tour

Come tour one of Canada’s “Greenest” wineries and see how Southbrook Vineyards has become one of the leading players in biodynamic, organic and other green initiatives. Hear about their organic agriculture which uses natural inputs, thus using less water, energy, and creating no synthetic pesticides, no chemical fertilizer, no bioengineering, and no genetic modification. See Biodynamics in action in the use of specially prepared composts, the addition of ingredients such as herbal teas, and the alignment of farming activities with lunar energy. You will also get a chance to see their solar project which is a part of a net metering project, the largest in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region, generating renewably sourced electricity.  You will also tour Southbrook’s  hospitality pavilion  which became the first winery building to receive the Gold level of LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) from the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) in November 2008.

The tour begins at 11am with the option of a paid lunch afterwards. Please register on the link below to reserve your spot.
