TPP Agreement:

A case for Canadian wine

John Skinner, proprietor of Penticton-based winery Painted Rock Estate Winery (above) is a proponent of the TPP Agreement. Skinner sells his wines all over the world and sees the benefit that the agreement will bring Canadian wines.

By Melanie Franner


lthough not yet ratified, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement holds the promise of opening up new markets for Canadian wines. The TPP Agreement would involve trade with 11 countries, only four of which Canada currently has trade agreements in place (U.S., Mexico, Peru, and Chile). The new markets would include: Australia, Brunei, Darissalam, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam.

Industry insight “The TPP is important for the Canadian wine industry in that it will open up opportunities for Canada to access 800 million consumers, which represents about 40 per cent of the world economy,” states Dan Paszkowski, president and CEO, Canadian Vintners Association. “Also of importance is that if we


were to be excluded from the TPP, we would be excluded from having our tariffs reduced with other countries.” John Skinner, proprietor of Pentictonbased Painted Rock Estate Winery, is another proponent of the TPP Agreement. Skinner was involved in an industry roundtable on the topic back in February 2015. “I talk to the Ministry of International Trade on a regular basis,” he explains, adding that the winery produces approximately 6,500 cases annually, 45 per cent of which is exported. “I am very export-oriented. About 40 per cent of our production is currently exported to China. I went out and got that business.” Skinner is currently pursuing other markets – with or without the TPP. He has been in New York, Dallas and London in

2015, and is planning to attend ProWein in Dusseldorf, Germany, in March 2016. “I am really trying to buffer any export contracts,” he says, adding that he thinks the TPP Agreement will create exciting new opportunities. “I see openings in Singapore and Japan in particular. I’m not sure how big Singapore will be, but I think Japan can be a huge market. The fewer the tariffs, the better it is.” Paszkowski states that Canada’s wine exports in 2014 totaled more than $66

million. TPP wine imports into Canada totaled 175 million litres, valued at $895 million. TPP wines, he goes on to say, represent 42 per cent of total Canadian import value, with the top five TPP wine imports represented by the U.S., Australia, Chile, New Zealand and Mexico. “Through tariff elimination, the TPP Agreement will significantly improve market-access opportunities for Canada’s wine sector,” says Paszkowski, who adds that Japan’s duties would be eliminated within seven years, Vietnam’s within 11 years, Malaysia within 15 years, while Australia and New Zealand would be immediate.

Notable notes As a businessman, Skinner is ready to embrace the TPP Agreement. “I’m not afraid of competing head to head with our main competitors, who are the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Chile,” he says. “I think we’re producing a wonderful product and I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and enter the competition.” Of course, Skinner’s signature wine, Red Icon, is currently selling on restaurant lists in China at up to US$950 bottle. “I think that those of us in this industry who are export-oriented are looking forward to it,” he adds.

Painted Rock Estate Winery’s signature Red Icon is currently selling on restaurant lists in China up to US$950 a bottle.

“Europe has 51 per cent and TPP countries have up to 42 per cent. Our call to the government, as an association, is that we are in support of the TPP, but in order to take full advantage of what the TPP can offer, we have to first get some support at home.” Paszkowski cites several moves that would be welcomed by the Canadian Vintners Association, namely the elimination of inter-provincial trade barriers and added marketing support and education for Canadian wine consumers.

“Our industry contributes $6.8 billion to the economy,” he concludes. “Canadians are increasingly selecting wine over other alcohol beverages, so opportunities in our own marketplace are very strong right now. Our members feel we must continue to capture more domestic sales opportunities, which in turn will increase winery profitability, and support Canadian wineries in taking advantage of the export opportunities the TPP has to offer.” o

According to Paszkowski, the TPP Agreement also has the potential to introduce other advantages. “The Canadian wine industry will see improved recognition for its ecological practices,” he explains. “And we won’t have to re-label our wines for each country. This alone will help to reduce time and costs.” On another note, Paszkowski cautions that the Canadian wine industry has some work to do before the TPP Agreement comes into effect. “Right now, the Canadian wine industry has a 10 per cent domestic market share of its premium wines,” he states.

Going green in the wine industry:

Sustainability planning By Ronald Morrison, MES, MCIP, RPP


s in many successful business enterprises, desired outcomes are guided and left less to chance through a planning process and management framework that articulates actions to be taken and monitors results that are achieved. Planning for sustainability in the wine business is no different.

Sustainability has become firmly entrenched in the business world and is quickly emerging in the wine industry as a win-win model. Vineyard and winery process inputs and materials represent-


ing cost factors are reduced, reused, and recycled, so that few, if any resources are wasted and environmental footprints are minimized. The following offers a practical step-by-step overview on planning for how sustainability can be achieved in a vineyard and winery enterprise, and subsequently advanced for profitable and greener business operations. By its very nature, a vineyard and winery enterprise extends over a plot of land and requires varying inputs of water, energy, nutrients, and other process

materials. These are key elements that are addressed in sustainability planning and in adopting environmental initiatives and raising awareness in the industry. Cost savings, environmental benefits, market competition, consumer demand, and brand distinction are the drivers. The transition for a small – or even medium-sized winery business can initially seem daunting and difficult to justify in light of other business priorities, but it can result in significant economic, environmental, and social benefits. So what are the steps in developing an integrat-

ed growing and production system to reap the fruits of sustainability and how do we get there?

Understand the business case and establish commitment Developing a better understanding of the business benefits that drive sustainability, and a corresponding commitment are the first steps toward a sustainable wine enterprise. Understanding, buy-in, and commitment of owners and senior management are prerequisites to proceeding and succeeding with a sustainability program at any level, from starting out to well advanced.

Undertake a sustainability assessment Another starting point for building sustainability into operations and planning for the future is to complete a baseline assessment to establish quantifiable metrics relating to environmental, economic, and social aspects of the business. The assessment can be undertaken as a rapid scan of operations at a high level to identify key gaps and areas to address, or a more complete evaluation of operations to reveal specific opportunities to integrate sustainability practices. From this baseline, it is then possible to begin planning for sustainability into the future, with goals and initiatives to achieve the above commitment.

Develop a sustainability policy and strategic plan A policy spells out commitment toward sustainability elements and opportunities and begins to steer action toward progress. The next important step in building a sustainability program is to develop a strategic plan that clearly outlines goals to be pursued and related practices to be integrated into operations within an overall management framework. Initiatives aimed at reduction of water consumption and corresponding costs by a specified percentage over a given period, and greenhouse gas emission reductions, are examples. The plan ties together and justifies initiatives that might otherwise be undertaken on an ad-hoc basis, without realizing the full benefits possible.

Execute, measure and track performance The old adage says, ‘you can’t manage what you don’t measure’. As operational initiatives identified through the planning process are undertaken, it is important to establish metrics and monitor operations to track performance improvements over time. For example, how is energy consumption of the enterprise broken down and how has it changed? What are the cost savings? What are the corresponding aggregate carbon footprints? How does the progress relate to sustainability targets established in the strategic plan?

Report on progress While many businesses are gaining an appreciation of how their operations benefit from sustainability, a tipping point is emerging as investors and customers come to see the greater value possible through the economic, social, and environmental lens of sustainability reporting. It enables an opportunity for businesses to share information on the progress of their programs and demonstrates their commitment to sustainability, which more and more consumers are beginning to look for. To get started in reporting, there are different widely accepted sustainability reporting standards, e.g. GRI and CDP that can be considered.

Resources In addition to the above steps, there are a couple of wine sustainability programs in Canada that provide frameworks to start out and/or advance sustainability. These include the B.C. Wine Grape Council Sustainable Winegrowing Program, and the Wine Council of Ontario Sustainable Winemaking Ontario: An Environmental Charter for the Wine Industry and its Sustainability Certification Program. While these programs provide templates for building sustainability into a winery business, external expertise is also often sought to augment internal capacity, and to facilitate and expedite the process. o


Old world restoration After finding a hidden gem in Hungary, a Canadian makes a run-down cellar new and begins making old world wines

By Jill Buchner


hen Robert Gilvesy moved to his parents’ homeland of Hungary in 1992, winemaking wasn’t on his mind. At the time, the Canadian was working as an architect – he loved the opportunity to be creative, imagining beautiful buildings into being. But one day, his architectural partner showed him a property that would change his life. It was an 18th century stone-walled press house on a basalt-covered hillside on the north shore of Lake Balaton in Hungary’s wine region. Though the structure was in ruins, it was perfectly positioned with a view of a crumbling castle, a large butte, and the shining waters of the largest lake in central Europe. “It was all kind of idyllic and my jaw basically hit the floor,” recalls Gilvesy. “As a lark, we looked to find the owner of the place.” As it turns out, the property had gone into


receivership. Gilvesy seized the opportunity and bought it, not really knowing what he would do with it. Years passed and the land sat unused, but it remained at the back of his mind, percolating with possibilities. Finally, in 2007, feeling the urge to make a change from his corporate career, he decided to sell the business where he had been working and rebuild the old villa and cellar to open his own winery. The building project would pose a fulfilling architectural endeavour, while cultivating the vineyard offered a return to his roots. “I grew up on a farm in Ontario and I wasn’t scared of getting my hands dirty,” says Gilvesy. But before he got started, he wanted to learn everything he could about wine. Travelling to Austria a couple days a week to visit a winemaking mentor, he developed his knowledge of wine and a passion for the process. Gilvesy toured

Robert Gilvesy’s Hungarian wines are sold in trendy Toronto and Montreal restaurants.

different regions and cellars, tasting wines and learning from people who knew wine best. “It was forming my education and I was learning what wines I wanted to produce, what wines are capable of being produced in our terroir,” he says. He began working with his own grapes in 2008 as a partner in Káli Kövec Cellars – a vineyard in the same region as his own would-be winery.

By 2012 the renovations on the old ruins were finished and, within weeks, the first harvest was underway. Today, Gilvesy Pincészet [winery] offers old world whites – Riesling, Furmint and Sauvignon Blanc – that are characterized by the distinct minerality and foodpairing-perfect acidity that come with the region’s unique terroir defined by

many-million-year-old volcanoes. “I feel that the whites express that minerality very nicely.” And those volcanic wines are beginning to make their way into the Canadian market, being served in trendy Toronto and Montreal restaurants, like Momofuku and Bar Isabel. “It’s nice for me because that’s

where I’m from,” says Gilvesy. “That’s where I can reach people that I know.” Back in Hungary, Gilvesy can finally sit on his terrace with a glass of Rhine Riesling in hand to appreciate all his hard work coming to fruition. The villa, a modern interpretation of the historic building, is a sort of oasis in the hills, but it’s the view that makes visitors go silent: row after row of grape vines, an antiquated castle flanked by mountains and a lake, all framed by a huge expanse of sky. It’s a panorama of pastoral perfection, and it’s the image Gilvesy decided to wrap around his bottles. Like the winemaker himself, coming from Canada to his Hungarian origins and back again, the label comes full circle, with the winery’s view in a band around it – 180 degrees of wonder. Sure, it’s not quite as majestic as the real thing, but just take a sip and you can almost feel like you’re there. Private orders of Gilvesy wines are available at NPwines.com. o

Montreal criminal case brings wine counterfeiting to the fore By Melanie Franner


he arrest of several people in Montreal in May 2015 for allegedly selling “doctored” wine has caught many peo-

ple by surprise in the Canadian wine industry. The atypical event has been reported by winespectator.com to al-


legedly involve 150,000 cases of wine over a four-year period. Also purported is that the product in question was altered Italian bulk wine.

extensive lab tests on its products. “The liquor boards talk among themselves and exchange information,” she says. Another big “regulator” in the Canadian wine industry is the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA).

Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) is a regulatory system that guarentees the high-quality and authenticity for Canadian wines made under that system in Ontario and British Columbia.

Rules to live by McMahon isn’t surprised that the counterfeiting ring was eventually apprehended. “I think it’s an acknowledgement that when you are counterfeiting wine at that level, chances are that you’re going to get caught,” she says. McMahon is quick to add that Canada has very strict rules and regulations governing the sale of bottled wines.

“Within our VQA system, there are a lot of site inspections, tasting panels and lab tests that occur on a regular basis,” adds McMahon. “No government in Canada is going to tolerate counterfeiting and black-market alcohol sales.” The VQA echoes McMahon’s sentiment. “Certainly within the province of Ontario, wine counterfeiting is not a big issue,” states Laurie Macdonald, executive director, VQA Ontario. “I’ve never encountered it before and I have been in this industry for the last 15 years.” Macdonald is quick to add that the Ontario VQA program involves about 160 wineries and that the VQA Ontario conducts about 300 inspections per year. “We have things tightly locked down here in Ontario,” she says. “The industry is heavily regulated and all wine imports have to come through the LCBO.”

“I don’t know how counterfeiting could be done with bottled wines,” she says. “The Canadian liquor boards have such rigorous analysis and scrutiny over all of the product coming into the various provinces.”

Different story

McMahon cites the Liquor Control Board of Ontario as having completed more than 500,000 lab tests on 7,000 products in 2014 alone.

“The sale of icewine in Canada is not a problem,” states McMahon. “In China, it is definitely a challenge.”

“The quality analysis findings from these LCBO tests are widely used as industry benchmarks,” she says, adding that the tests involve everything from the levels of pesticides, to heavy metals, labeling, consistency, legality – and so on. “There is a very, very high level of integrity in Canada’s wine industry.” According to McMahon, the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ) also performs

One segment of the Canadian industry that is partial to counterfeiting – overseas – is icewine.

According to McMahon, Canadian icewine sales represented 29 per cent of the total Canadian wine export value. This equated to $19.4 million or 228,500 litres. Of this amount, exports to China accounted for approximately one third – or 72,000 litres valued at $6.9 million. “China is Canada’s largest export market for icewine,” she states. Many industry pundits suggest up to 50

per cent of the icewine sold in China is counterfeit. “The Chinese aren’t looking for counterfeit product in particular,” explains McMahon. “They want to purchase these high-end products for gifts. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unscrupulous people out there who are taking advantage of that.” The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) – if and when it comes into effect – will go a long way to helping resolve this issue by ensuring that all trading partners involved in the agreement adopt the current definition of icewine. “We’re currently trying to get China to adopt the same definition of icewine as other countries,” states McMahon. “Which is ‘naturally frozen on the vine’.” McMahon adds that any icewine leaving Ontario or British Columbia (the two provinces represent about 99 per cent of the total icewine production in Canada) must be VQA certified. CVA owns the VQA trademark in China, which provides protection for consumers who know to look for the designation on the label. “Counterfeit icewine in China has been an issue for a number of years now,” she says. “We’re now looking at the use of different technologies to try to diminish or resolve it.” These technologies vary from antitampering bottles to bottles outfitted with special codes so people can enter the code and get assurance of authenticity right then and there. “If Chinese consumers eventually come to the belief that all Canadian icewine is counterfeit, then they will just move onto something else,” concludes McMahon. “And we certainly don’t want that to happen. China is a strong export market for our Canadian icewine products.” o


Dousing the flames

Tips for protecting your winery from fire

Storing stock in a fire-safe building can help reduce your insurance premiums.


magine watching a line of red flames bleed across the horizon and wondering if it had managed to reach your fields, your storage sheds or your winery. That was the reality vineyards and wineries faced in the Okanagan Valley this past summer. In the thick of things was Road 13 Vineyards, which found itself within just 10 metres of a blazing wildfire in August. Owner Mick Luckhurst, his crew and volunteers from Mission Hill Family Estate Winery worked to prevent the spread of flames by clearing away 20 metres of


sage brush along the hillside between his farm and the fire. They soaked rooftops and plugged the drains on flat-roof buildings, filling them up with six inches of water so they couldn’t burn. They also moved CO2, nitrogen, diesel, and all other flammable materials to safety at the front of the property. Road 13 got lucky. Nothing burned and none of their grapes were tainted by the smoke. Wildfires are a way of life for the region though and Luckhurst has taken steps to help prevent future wildfires from getting that close.

“Since then, I’ve taken my irrigation system and ran it up to the top of all of our rows, close to the bush line,” said Luckhurst. “We put sprinkler heads on every second post along our deer fence. If we need to we can spray water up to 15 metres now and drench the hillside.”

Other hazards All commercial businesses can find themselves at some risk of fire – as the Le Caveau Restaurant and Domaine de Grand Pré winery in Grand Pré, Nova Scotia learned in December 2012.

“We had just finished dinner service and were cleaning up for the night when the sous chef noticed an abnormal amount of smoke in the kitchen,” said Beatrice Stutz, manager and owner. “We called the fire department right away. When they opened up the floorboards, flames shot out.” The heat from the stove in the kitchen had transferred to the wood floor, which self ignited and had been smouldering for several days. There hadn’t been enough smoke to trigger smoke detectors or the winery’s alarm monitoring system. The kitchen and the dining room ceiling had to be replaced and they weren’t able to work in the thirdfloor office space for several weeks. “In their mind I think everybody does whatever they can to prevent something like a fire,” said Stutz. “You do the inspections and make sure things are turned off – normal preventative measures. But sometimes accidents do happen.” Fortunately, Le Caveau Restaurant is in a separate building than the rest of the winery, so the fire was contained. They lost the last two weeks of the restaurant’s operating season, but were still able to re-open in April for the new season.

Insuring against loss “Any commercial property insurance policy will include fire protection,” said James Grant, president & CEO of Signa-

ture Risk Partners Inc. in Toronto. “Fortunately, fire doesn’t happen frequently, but it’s the number-one reason people buy insurance.” Insuring your winery property against damage from fire is just part one. “Fire is also a major cause of business interruption and many commercial insurance policies do not automatically cover things like ongoing operating expenses and the break-down or repair of essential winemaking equipment,” said Grant. “Owners need to ensure that their current policy also covers essential ongoing expenses like payroll if they have a fire.”

Reducing insurance costs through fire prevention “There are a lot of things that a winery owner can do that will save them money in annual insurance premiums over the long run,” said Joe Hannigan, VP and director of wine at Signature Risk Partners Inc., a specialist for the company’s Signature Wine Insurance Program. “Probably the most important thing is to invest in a sprinkler system. Having a sprinkler system can save you as much as 20 per cent annually on your insurance premium, which will pay for the cost of the system over time. “Other things that can help to reduce annual premiums include storing finished stock in a fire-safe building and using a centrally monitored alarm system.” o

Everyday fireprevention tips for wineries and vineyards • Regularly value all buildings, equipment, stock and finished stock to ensure you have enough insurance coverage, and have it formally appraised every three or five years. • Ensure your fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, smoke alarms, and sprinkler systems are maintained and inspected regularly. • Fuel sources and other flammable materials should be handled and stored properly, and not left next to your winery, restaurant, or stock storage buildings. • If your operation is threatened by a wildfire, move all flammable materials like chemicals and fuel, inventory, field equipment, office equipment, and business records out of danger zones. Fill tanks and pumps with water to keep on hand to put out spot fires. • Have an emergency action plan and evacuation plan and be ready to implement it. Also make sure that any employees and volunteers know when, how, and where to evacuate. • Ensure emergency vehicles can access your property by moving equipment and clearly marking access roads ahead of time. • Clear roofs and gutters of debris and remove any dead plants, trees, wood, and other flammable debris so it can’t ignite. Also clear any branches that extend within six feet of any building. • Signature Risk Partners recommends investing in a centrally managed alarm system, which not only protects against theft, but can also detect heat and fire and alert emergency services for you. • They also recommend storing important documents and files in a fire-resistant safe.

Pinte’s rosé production increased 30 per cent over the course of nine years.

The rising popularity of rosé wine By Tammy Schuster


he reputation of rosé has grown-up and demand for it has grown as well. But, just like the young adults who used to drink it when they first passed the legal drinking age, rosé is highly misunderstood. As more people learn about the wine and it’s many varieties, demand has been on a steady incline. Maggie Anderson, marketing director of the British Columbia Wine Institute, says in May this year rosé sales were up 8.59 per cent over last year. “It’s definitely a trend forming due to availability and awareness of the products.”


Rosé is known as an approachable wine. The Canadian palate tends to prefer sweeter wines, and rosé doesn’t have the tannins found in red wines and it’s not as acidic as some white wines. Consumer demand has increased and there is more competition, but why? It’s partly due to the fact that the blushing beverage is slowly shedding the reputation of being a sub-par wine. “Previously, rosé gave the perception that it was a way to use poor-quality red grapes that couldn’t be used elsewhere,” says Anderson. “That’s an old out-dated perception.”

“Rosé is not a sub-product wine,” says Severine Pinte, managing partner, viticulturist and winemaker at Le Vieux Pin and LaStella Wineries in Osoyoos, B.C. “It’s actually very technical and complicated to make, and more winemakers are acquiring the technique to make the overall quality much better.”

Anderson says winemakers are now growing grapes specifically for making rosé.

Pinte says grapes are grown expressly for rosé and it starts right from the prun-

hectoliters,” she says. “It would sell out within three months. The popularity is growing everywhere.” Wineries in the south Okanagan are making great varieties of rosé, from light blush to deep rich pinks and reds. And yes, it is easy to drink. Depending on the varietal, the crisp, fresh zing of citrus, ripe fruit, and hints of spice makes this refreshing wine a great accompaniment to almost anything.

a winemaker from France, she says her rosé production increased 30 per cent over the course of nine years.

Pinte says since the rosé at both wineries sold out very early in the season, she had to bottle the new batch of 2015 La Stellina Rosato – a blend of cabernet franc, merlot, and sangiovese – at the end of October and it will be released at the LaStella Winery soon.

Pinte says the trend is not unique to British Columbia or even to Canada. As

Scary good wines Monster Vineyards expresses creative freedom to make a unique and original blend of wine By Jordyn Wegner


eep in the Okanagan lies a creature of mythical stature. A lake monster, seen only by a handful over hundreds of years. This creature, said to live in the deep waters of Lake Okanagan, goes by the name of Ogopogo, and a Penticton winery is creating wines as unique as the monster itself.

Monster Vineyards was established in 2006 when Dr. Anthony Holler, owner of Poplar Grove Winery, decided to introduce an exciting new line of wines to the British Columbia wine market. Holler was born in Summerland, British Columbia and grew up on his family’s apple orchard; his upbringing left him very familiar with the immense beauty

and bounty the Okanagan Valley has to offer. Holler’s interest in wine began like so many other wine lovers, as a passionate and eager wine drinker, and from there the rest is history. Holler dove head-first into the B.C wine industry and never looked back. Not only does Holler immerse himself in the details and business of Monster Vineyard, but he also tends to his own personal 1.5acre Chardonnay vineyard located on his property in the Okanagan. He enjoys spending his free time in his vineyard, tending to the land and taking care of the grapes by hand. Monster Vineyards is conveniently located at the gate of the Naramata Bench wine touring route and is constantly raising the bar for other fruity Okanagan wines. “The Monster wines are fresh, fruity, and ready to be set free upon release,” explains Daphne Tomkins, marketing coordinator for Monster Vineyards and their parent winery, Poplar Grove. This unique line of wine prides itself in being different, and as Stefan Arnason, winemaker for Monster Vineyards, explains, it expresses his creative freedom when it comes to his winemaking and grape choices.

Monster Vineyards, the little sister of Poplar Grove, was established in 2006 when Dr. Anthony Holler decided to introduce a new, exciting line of wines to the B.C. market.

“Monster Vineyards’ wine has been produced to be an easy-going and approachable wine that many can appreciate. The glow-in-the-dark wine bottle features humorous artwork that is sure to be the talk of the dinner table. Monster wines are demonstrably cheerful and optimistic,” shares Tomkins. It’s not just the wine alone that is special, it’s also Monster’s unique and somewhat unconventional tasting room. “The rustic building is a great reflection of Monster’s whimsical brand and sense of humour,” says Tomkins. “Mon-

ster’s tasting room’s main centrepiece is a large chainsaw-carved tasting bar, made from 800-year-old sequoia red wood. The bar was featured on the TV show Saw Dogs and is a very unique representation of the Opopogo.” The legend of Opopogo (a mythological creature that is said to haunt Lake Okanagan) plays a significant role in the theme of winery’s tasting room, and parts of the legend are subtly sprinkled throughout the brand itself. The unorthodox tasting room also features a recently renovated patio with a stunning view of Okanagan Lake and the Okanagan Valley – the perfect setting to

enjoy a delicious glass of wine. Monster Vineyards produces onaverage 5,000 cases annually, and their wines can be found throughout British Columbia and Alberta. This vibrant young brand is letting their creative (wine) juices flow; they describe themselves as “demonstrably cheerful and optimistic”, and it is very evident through everything they do. Their passion and enthusiasm shows in every way, from their tasting room, to their bottles, to the wine itself. As Tomkins mentions, there’s no denying Monster wines is something special. “The laid-back atmosphere and quirky setting create a memorable wine tasting experience.” o


It’s the wine talking

Church & State Wines launches cheeky labels for their Lost Inhibitions wine bottles By Tammy Schuster


e’ve all been there. Drink one glass of wine, and the words seem to flow from your lips. Have another glass, and the words just right fall out. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good, and sometimes it’s perfect. This is the concept behind the branding and marketing of Lost Inhibitions wine – a product line created and released this year by Church & State Wines. Launched on April Fool’s Day 2015, the winery wanted to create two wines that


reflected their style and quality of wine, while using a variety of sassy labels to help gain exposure for their winery. “We wanted to introduce two foundation wines and do something over the top and in your face so you had to try it,” says John Pullen, marketing manager at Church & State Wines. With 200 label phrases packaged randomly, you never know what you’ll find in each box. Every wine shipment is split between two label series. “The prude series are a little more PG, and the

The Lost Inhibitions line is just one series of wines that the award-winning winery produces.

lewd series are obviously a little more risqué,” says Pullen. “There are a lot of double entendres and innuendo.” It’s easy to find a label for any occasion, such as from the prude series, Shut The Front Door and Best Night Ever could be in order for a fun Friday night. Or perhaps you’re in the mood for something a little more lewd after a long Monday commute, such as Surrounded by Idiots, or Two Words, One Finger. Church & State Wines saw this concept as a fun opportunity to engage their customers by inviting them to post photos of their Lost Inhibitions wine bottles and submit phrases through social media. “People have been posting their sentiments and popping the bottles into their conversations and life events,” says Pullen. “To be totally blunt, a lot of these phrases come up when you’ve had a few glasses of wine.”

marks in dozens of fabrics and felts before scanning for the labels. “The amount of effort, skill, and dedication that went into crafting this concept is unparalleled,” he says. “The labels are a work of art.“ Pullen says despite their tongue-incheek labels, they take their winemaking very seriously, and place a lot of value on their traditional Church & State Wines brand image. But the Lost Inhibitions project was an opportunity to reflect the fun they have in the wine cellar and tasting bars. “We are using the labels to introduce

people to our entire portfolio,” says Pullen. “The labels are hilarious the first time, but customers return because it’s a remarkable wine.” The red is a traditional Bordeaux blend, and the white is a non-traditional blend, which won Double Gold for Best White Vitus Vinifera Blend at the 2015 All Canadian Wine Championship. Pullen says the team got a little nervous right before they launched, but their jitters soon faded. “Once we got comfortable with having f-bombs on the wine bottles, we were okay with it. It’s playful and fun.” o

One couple posted their engagement announcement with a picture of an engagement ring and a bottle saying Yes In A Heartbeat. Another couple celebrating their anniversary posted a photo with the bottle label that says We Should Do This More Often. Working with Brandever Strategy Inc. in Vancouver, Pullen says the branding concept firm helped develop the phrases and created letters and punctuation


Building a better customer experience at Arrowleaf Cellars By Tammy Schuster


hen the owners at Arrowleaf Cellars decided to add production and storage space to their winery in the Okanagan Valley, they discovered a potential opportunity. Not only could they increase the winery capacity, but they could also give the wine tasting public more of an experience.


The original building on the familyowned-and-operated winery was built in 2002 as a basic production facility with a small, but appealing, tasting room at one end. “Essentially, its main purpose was to kickstart the making and selling of quality wine,” says Robert Mackenzie, architect for the project. “The exterior lacked

a unique aesthetic. And after 10 years of increasing production, the interior had insufficient storage space for barrels and production tanks.” By adding a new building to house a barrel cellar, they decided if they added a new wine shop as well, it would free up even more space in the original facility. “By expanding with a new build-

ing, it allowed for the reorganization and expansion of operations in the existing building as well,” says Mackenzie. The new tasting room is almost four times the size of its predecessor. “It was only about 400 square feet inside, which is way too small,” says Joe Zuppiger, winery owner and general manager at Arrowleaf Cellars. “The new building has a modern contemporary style, which makes it more of a fresh, new experience for our visitors.” The glass, concrete, and timber structure opened in 2014 and takes full advantage of the dynamic views of the vineyard and lake. The large overhangs outside shade the building from the hot Okanagan sun, keeping the interior tasting bar and exterior dining patio cool. The underground barrel room also contributes to the natural cooling and energy efficiency.

existing winery building on the other.” But since the new barrel cellar was so close to the existing production building, they were able to run stainless-steel processing pipelines underground between buildings. This allows for an easy and gentle transfer of wine to the storage barrels. “It became an area of interest because we could expose it to the public and make it a feature,” says Mackenzie. “We decided to build a small event area for dining or tastings outside the barrel cellar with a window facing into the cellar.” The cellar was designed as a point of interest, exposing it to the public and making it a distinct feature, Mackenzie says, adding, “We decided to build a small spe-

cial area for events, dining, or tastings outside the cellar with windows facing the highlighted stacks of aging wine.” Mackenzie mentions that having a more contemporary profile for the building reaches out to a new generation of wine aficionados. “There is a really strong emphasis on the public,” he says. “And when you’re creating a new building, you are also contributing to the overall profile of the wine.” Arrowleaf Cellars won the 2015 Award of Excellence from the SICA Commercial Building Awards for their new tasting room and barrel cellar earlier this year. o

The expansion has given the winery opportunities to appeal to broader audiences. The kitchen, open since May, also serves lighter fare options, including charcuterie and cheese boards, salads and soups. Peter Neumann, project manager from Greyback Construction Ltd. says the biggest challenge was working within the tight site conditions. “The excavation for the cellar was 20 feet deep, and between the vineyard on one side and the

trend towards local tourism is showing that Canadians are seeking opportunities within Canada’s borders when planning their next vacation, and that they’re looking for more than just sight-seeing.

The latest Destination B.C. trends report showcased that 14.7 million Canadian domestic visitors took advantage of the sights of beautiful British Columbia in 2013. Of these, 10.7 million were British Columbians.


Retired Coquitlam-based couple Pat and Fred Roy did just that, making the most of having some time on their hands to enjoy the finer things in life, close to home. Only a short jaunt from the Lower Mainland, they toured the bountiful Okanagan region to sip and savour all that the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival had to offer, while also seizing the opportunity to get an education in food and wine. The Roys signed up for the three-day Food Wine Farm Workshop at Okana-

Partnering with local industry, the Roys were among eight students in the workshop who learned how to make charcuterie, pâté, and pickled vegetables (with Joy Road Catering chef Cameron Smith), artisanal sourdough bread (with Okanagan Grocery’s baker Monika Walker), delicate lavender and chocolate macarons (with French chef Sandrine Raffault of Sandrine Patisserie), and cheese making and wine blending (with master cheese maker Shana Miller and winemaker Gavin Miller, both of Upper Bench Creamery & Winery). Armed with recipes and savoir faire, the students were prepared to be able to recreate their masterpieces at home with confidence. “The whole course exceeded our expectations, especially with how hands-on it was,” said 60-year-old Pat Roy. “Learning to make the macarons was the most memorable part. In particular, it was learning the technique with the piping bag and doing it right. Being shown how it is done makes it so much easier.” Her husband Fred, 65, who built his

career working in the brewing and chocolate industry, found a new appreciation for wine tasting in the course. “Learning to let in a bit of air as you sip to aerate the wine on your palate, and the food pairing to accompany the different wines was the most valuable to me,” he said. The course was the second time the Roys included education in their travel plans. They previously participated in a food and wine course in Charlottetown, PEI. For them, travel is an ideal opportunity to try the foods and products of the areas they visit. “There is an appetite for destination learning, and especially for those with the time, and disposable income, to pursue their passions, broaden their learning, and entice their palates,” said Jonathan Rouse, food, wine & tourism director at Okanagan College. Rouse adds – and the Roys agree –

that a major draw to the Okanagan is having such great purveyors of fine food and a thriving wine community. “It’s a destination for sure,” he said. “We’re finding a real uptake in interest in the workshops and short-term courses we offer here at the college as a way for tourists to enrich their visit to the region. We are even starting to offer destination learning intensive courses for those in the industry looking to build on their training.”

A tale of

Two Wineries

By Cher Wood, CPA, CGA


ur story takes place where rows of vines quilt the landscape like patchwork canvases and winery structures rise in juxtaposition to that pattern. The primary “characters” of this tale are two wineries of similar size, production, quality, and varietal offerings. Each winery has carved a respectable place in the market, having each secured loyal customers and attracting new business at roughly the same pace with similar sales volumes. Likewise, general, administrative and operating costs are not dissimilar from one winery to the other. However, this is where the similarities end and their financial results diverge. Expensalot Winery Inc.’s accounting


policies have been to capture all costs associated with grape-growing, wine production, and winery operation in the year the expenses are incurred. Labour costs, chemicals, fertilizer, equipment rental, and any other direct costs associated with grape production are expensed each year. In addition, the winery employs both a winemaker and cellar crew to manage/monitor production and these costs are also captured in the yearly expenses. Inventory values on the balance sheet of Expensalot are comprised primarily of wine shop resale items and nominal values for bottled wines. Costs for the bottled wines are captured in inventory only at the time of bottling and include the cost of bottles,

labels, corks, capsules, tin foils, and the bottling-line rental fees. Expensalot generally reports losses year after year and management is pleased to report that in 10 years of operation they have been able to avoid paying corporate tax. Recently, Expensalot’s management approached their financial institution for a loan to construct a restaurant/lounge for their winery. Management provided their financial institution with budgets, cash flow projections, along with current year-to-date and historical financial statements as part of their application. Unfortunately, the lender declined Expensalot’s application citing two key reasons; poor profitability results and nominal inventory values. Although the

winery’s property values did appreciate as a result of market conditions, the appreciated values did not provide enough margin for the lender to meet the requested loan advance. For Expensalot, it truly was the worst of times. Gainsalot Winery Ltd.’s accounting policies differ from its competitor’s. Each years’ crop production costs along with the winemakers’ fees, additives, cellar crew, and other related costs are captured and allocated to the wines in process. The cellar crew and winemaker keep detailed reports regarding bulk wine movement in terms of racking, topping, and spillage/spoilage losses and provide these reports to Gainsalot’s accountant so that the effects of these changes can be captured in bulk wine costs by vintage and variety. Bottling reports are provided to the accountant who then assigns all the costs associated with the bottling process to the finished products. Armed with appropriate costing information, Gainsalot’s management is able to determine proper

pricing levels for its wines and customers. Gainsalot’s financial statements for the past 10 years reflect positive net income and current ratios in addition to achieving consistent gross margins that reflect industry norms. Even though the profits attract corporate tax, management determines that the benefits from reporting consistent profits far outweigh the costs of the alternative. Management decided to expand its agro-tourism profile by constructing accommodation facilities. Gainsalot prepared the loan application along with current year-to-date and historical financial statements, cash flow projections, and an overall business plan for the agro-tourism project. Ten days after submission, Gainsalot’s management received the much anticipated phone call from their lender who advised that their loan application had been approved. For Gainsalot, it was the best of times. Sadly, the key premise behind the Expensalot Winery tale is not fiction. Inventory management and the related

accounting policies applied to inventory are integral in analyzing operations and facilitating management’s sound financial and strategic decisions. One of the challenges facing winery accounting personnel is the consideration of when and how to accumulate costs of production – particularly when tracking these costs extends beyond one fiscal period. This is one of the areas in wine industry accounting that we are passionate about. We at RHN have designed targeted solutions to assist clients with this challenge.

Worker health and safety is always on your mind... right? By Wendy Bennett, CRSP


hen you have new workers at your vineyard or winery, it is important that they know the right steps to ensure your product is perfect. You take the time to teach them the finer elements of grape growing or winemaking; you take the time to ensure that the end product is consumer-worthy and will be chosen from amongst all the competition. Your workers are invaluable in this process. While you are deeply invested in quality, remember to take the time for worker safety. This can be a key element in the production of your wine that is easily forgotten. If your workers are not familiar with the safety requirements of your facility, chances are, an injury may occur. Not only will this create downtime while the injury is managed, this can also create additional unnecessary costs. Increased insurance premiums,


lost product, damaged equipment are but a few of the additional direct costs that result from injury in a vineyard or winery. Paperwork, incident investigation, reporting are some of the indirect costs that must be addressed when a workplace injury occurs… not to mention the morale and efficiency of those affected by the injury – witnesses, families, etc. Worker orientation is not only a legislative requirement, it’s in your best interest. When workers are informed by their employers how to keep themselves safe around machinery, they operate more efficiently. When workers know how to read chemical labels and are empowered to act according to the Safety Data Sheets, they use the chemicals appropriately and waste less. When workers know what to do in the event of an emergency, they perform their jobs with confidence.

And when workers know that YOU care about their health and safety, they take greater pride in their work and the product they are handling. This means that your end product is consumer worthy and will be chosen from amongst all the competition – because your product has been created with the care and attention that it deserves. In B.C., call AgSafe today for your free, no obligation consultation and worker training information to keep your vineyard and/or winery free from tragedy. While you’re at it, talk to us about all your safety needs – from confined space identification to Certificate of Recognition – we’re available when and where you need us.

50 years and looking to the future The Barbados/Canada migrant work connection


he Barbados Liaison Service was set up under the Consulate General of Barbados in 1966 by the Government of Barbados to manage the country’s operation under the Canada/Caribbean Seasonal Agricultural Workers Programme. The service has over 50 years of experience in the recruitment, selection, processing and placement of workers in Canada. The mandate of the liaison service is to seek out job opportunities for Barbadian workers in Canada and to ensure that the employers and workers operate under the terms and conditions as set out under the various clauses in the mutually agreed contract between the two parties. Under this program, Barbados has supplied workers to the provinces of Ontario, Nova Scotia, Alberta, Quebec, and British Columbia. This program has been very beneficial to both worker and employer over the years. There are many remarkable stories from workers who were able to educate their children, build homes and improve their overall standard of living as a result of being on this program. The program provides the employers with a ready supply of labour to prepare the fields for planting and the harvesting of crops in a timely manner, when this supply of labour is not readily available in Canada. Many employers have praised the workers for their hard work, dedication and commitment to this pro-


gram, especially those workers who return season after season, some of them on a continuous basis for over 30 years. As a result of the prudence of the liaison service over the years, both the employer and the worker understand and respect each other, adding to the success of the program in spite of cultural diversities. The Government of Barbados has also recognized the benefits that have been derived from this program, and has fully supported it over the years, and will continue its support in the future. Generally, the Barbadian worker is exposed to state-provided education and therefore has the opportunity to pursue any academic or technical course of study he/she chooses. The policy of the government is to identify the skills needed in Barbados and abroad, and to develop the occupational standards to match those needs. As a consequence, the appropriate curricula and training programs are created to ensure that Barbadians are equipped with the nec-

essary skills and competencies for Barbados and the international market. The strength of our education and training, and the work that is being done to strengthen the system, would indicate that we recognize the need to focus our attention on preparing our workers for highly skilled jobs, and in doing so, we have started the process to prepare individuals for the Canadian Red Seal certificate. The Barbadian workers have worked in many countries throughout the world and have developed a very positive reputation as being loyal, diligent and hardworking. It is the intention of the Government of Barbados to exceed that reputation by developing the skills and competencies of our people. The future is very bright for Barbados; our human capital is our main and very important resource, and it is the country’s intention to maintain a presence in the Canadian market at all skill levels to take advantage of the vast employment opportunities available across Canada. o

Wine-on-tap The evolution of wines by-the-glass


ine-on-tap has continued to take the wine industry by storm, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. Cited as the number-one trend in 2013 by the National Restaurant Association, wine-on-tap has become a widely recognized solution for restaurateurs that allows them to pour their guests a smarter, fresher, and friendlier glass of wine. Significantly, wine-on-tap also helps local wineries expand their reach into the wines by-the-glass market without the risk of spoilage. FreshTAP offers the service of packaging premium bulk wines into reusable 19.5L stainless-steel kegs for wineries. When empty kegs arrive at FreshTAP’s kegging facility, a 14-step sterilization process is


performed on each keg followed by several quality-assurance checks before reentering the keg fleet rotation. With approximately 10,000 kegs in their keg fleet across Canada, FreshTAP is able to meet the demand of an expanding market and ensure that kegs are readily available for licensed establishments across the country. With production facilities located in both Vancouver, B.C. and Beamsville, Ont., FreshTAP strives to meet the kegging needs of its winery partners and, by extension, the wine demands of their hospitality customers. Wine-on-tap is surging across Canada and consumers can now enjoy a glass of wine-on-tap in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario, with plans underway to con-

fresh for six-to-eight months because it remains under the pressure of an inert gas. Unlike other options in the market that rely on plastic bags and plastic containers, FreshTAP uses 304-grade stainless-steel kegs. These high-quality kegs ensure that your wine is kept in its natural environment. After almost four years in operation, FreshTAP and its winery partners have eliminated the need for over 750,000 bottles, caps, and corks, and 92,000 pounds of cardboard. Additionally, FreshTAP kegs can be used for up to 20 years.

tinue expanding the category across the country. Wine-on-tap means a perfect pour every time so that the wine tastes exactly the way the winemaker intended. When bottled wines are poured by-the-glass at a restaurant, the same bottle can re-

As a winemaker, nothing is more disheartening than losing the consistency of your carefully crafted wine. Conversely, once a 19.5L FreshTAP keg is tapped, the wine stays

With over 600 restaurants, bars, lounges, offices, theatres, and stadiums across the nation pouring wines from FreshTAP kegs, the category of wine-on-tap continues to grow and change the way that wine is enjoyed across the country.

La Garde fermentation tanks 2) Space optimization of the floor layout With the efficiency of a rectangular shape, you can reduce up to 40 per cent of the space needed to produce your wine, while keeping the perfect ratio for your tanks. The reduction of space results on energy, operation, and maintenance savings, which has a direct impact on your yearly fix costs. 3) Needs less water to clean them You save 90 per cent of the water needed to clean the tanks, according to all winemakers that have worked with our tanks. The inside of each of our tanks is seamless. Also, the walls are polished by hand to reduce the roughness of the walls to a minimum. So when you clean the tanks with water, all the tartaric residues and others are just sliding down the wall and it takes only minutes to clean the tank compared to hours for other tanks. Here you save on water and man-hour for operation and maintenance, year after year. The Wine Foundry, Napa, CA.

La Garde provides fermentation tanks that help the operation and the quality of the winemaking. The La Garde tanks have been recognized for their exceptional aesthetic look for many years, but what winemakers should also consider when acquiring new tanks are all the other advantages that the La Garde tanks will bring to the quality of the wine, the operation costs, and the high return on investment advantages. Here are some facts and advantages about La Garde tanks: 1) Huge increase of the contact surface area With up to 40 per cent more contact surface between the cap of must and the juice, the La Garde tanks enhance the fermentation process (a better extraction of the tannins, the colour and the flavour of the skins during fermentation). In a winery where quality of the wine matters, good winemaking techniques and experts will emphasize the importance of the ratio 1:1. That ratio is a reference of the contact surface area provided by a tank for a certain volume of wine. It also provides a manageable thickness of the cap, which makes it easier to blend with the juice.


4) Less energy for cooling and higher cooling efficiency The La Garde tanks’ cooling jackets are very efficient. Due to their fabrication, they are wider and larger than dimpled jackets. There is less head loss when the glycol flows through them. Therefore, you also need less pressure to make them work efficiently (20 psi instead of over 50 psi for others). The small head loss and faster flow mean that you get a better cooling transfer into the tanks and a more accurate control over the temperature. Less pressure means less energy spent to cool the tanks, and therefore big savings on that process as well. All of the above reduces the operation cost year after year (less water to clean, less man-hour for cleaning, less energy for cooling) and produce a wine of the highest quality. The tanks are a fixed asset that doesn’t lose value through the years. It is important to consider the tanks as a part of the vineyard property like the winery itself and should not be considered as a consumable. Therefore, should you put at least a 20-year life to the tanks, the cost of these tanks are equivalent to less than 10 cents per bottle, compared to maybe six or seven cents per bottles for cylinder tanks. These three or four cents of differences are nothing compared to the added values mentioned above. o

or nearly fifteen years, beginning in the late 80s, the name Euro Grapevine Nursery was synonymous in Canada with high-quality virus-free grapevines. Since the year 2000, I have been operating my grapevine operation in California’s wine country as Knight’s Grapevine Nursery, where under its new name, the nursery is still synonymous with healthy, tested vines. I sell vines throughout California, and continues to serve my grapevine growing friends in Canada. I use the strictest test process available, testing each and every plant. Whether in Canada or California, I understand that protecting vines against viruses means nothing less than protecting a vineyard owner’s future. Sincerely,

Konzelmann Wineries successfully test Regalia Maxx


n 1984, Herbert Konzelmann, an established wine producer in Germany, recognized the grape growing potential of the Niagara region and moved his family and business to a lakefront property near Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Konzelmann Estate Winery was officially the seventh winery to open its doors in Ontario, and is now one of over 140. Today, Konzelmann Estate Winery produces over 30 wines that range from bold oak-aged Chardonnays to an increasingly popular Zweigelt-Merlot blend. Winemaker Eric Pearson takes particular pride in Konzelmann’s Heritage Reserve and Cabernet-Merlot blends, joking that he can’t even keep

track of the number of awards Konzelmann Estate Winery has received. While much of their production is eagerly scooped up by consumers in Ontario, they have also found very receptive markets globally that include Europe and Southeast Asia. Konzelmann viticulturist Romeo Miele has an unbridled passion for growing grapes drawn from a lifetime of experience.

“At the age of seven, I was handing out the vines for the ladies to plant, and I started pruning at the age of eight,” explains Miele who has nurtured the beautifully set vineyards of Konzelmann to an unprecedented level of sustainability and vitality. In an effort to embrace softer chemical treatment for grape production, Miele initiated a test for Engage Agro’s Regalia® Maxx on a block of Chardonnay grapes. Regalia Maxx is an OMRI-listed fungicide offering unique technology known as “induced systemic resistance” that inhibits plant pathogens. “Regalia Maxx interested me because it’s an organic, and anyone who wants a higher-quality wine really has to consider using non-conventional products,” said Miele. “We tried it, we used it for the three major botrytis sprays, and I was quite pleased with the results.” The success of Regalia Maxx translated into a better winemaking experience,

From L to R: Ron Mueller of Engage Agro, Romeo Miele & Eric Pearson of Konzelmann Estate Winery with Jouke Sypkes of Engage Agro.

according to Konzelmann winemaker Eric Pearson. “The day we harvested the Chardonnays, we harvested various blocks – the block that was treated with Regalia Maxx was about a (1°) brix higher over other Chardonnay blocks, and also the pigment of the skin was a bit more pronounced, which was really nice. We noticed the acidity was slightly lower than the other blocks, and we found that the aromatics of the juice right after it was pressed was much more intense than the other blocks.” Pearson noted that this translated into the wine with phenolic content, aromatic compounds, and flavour compounds that seemed to be a bit more vibrant and intense than the other Chardonnays that weren’t treated with Regalia Maxx. Miele is eager to expand the use of Regalia Maxx, indicating that “this time I’d like to use it on our Cabernet, our Merlots, and the Pinot Noir. Because we had good success on our Chardonnay, I’d like to try it again on our other varieties.”

Romeo Miele talks about sustainability at Konzelmann Estate Wineries.

Miele says that this year was a preliminary trial, which was very encouraging, and he won’t even consider using it if he sees something that isn’t just right, but this did not come up

with Regalia Maxx. “Everything we did with Regalia Maxx shows a positive response, and I plan on using Regalia Maxx in our other varietals… happily.” o


CCOVI’s hands-on training programs allow the institute to transfer research directly to the grape and wine industry.

Industry-driven research generating multi-milliondollar impact on Ontario’s wine industry By Kaitlyn Little


esearch into the grape and wine industry by Brock University’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) isn’t just benefitting the vines, it’s also generating an annual $91-million economic impact in Ontario according to a recently completed report by the national management consulting firm, MDB Insight.


But the $91,123,926 annual economic impact wasn’t developed overnight, says CCOVI director Debbie Inglis. “The impact in 2014-15 is a culmination of the programs and services that have been developed and transferred to the industry over the past decade,” she says. Inglis said the institute, which works in

partnership with the Grape Growers of Ontario, the Wine Council of Ontario, and the Winery and Grower Alliance of Ontario, has been working since 1996 on developing applied research solutions and programs that address the priorities identified by the Canadian industry. Of the $91-million overall impact, CCOVI’s research programs and services

contributed to a total economic impact to the Ontario industry of more than $86 million in 2014-2015, while investments from Brock and government funding generated a total economic impact of more than $4.7 million to the Ontario economy last year, according to the report. To quantify the economic impact that CCOVI research and outreach services has directly on the industry, MDB Insights gathered data from the industry about how CCOVI research and outreach programs provide direct cost savings to industry operations, prevented crop damage or loss, which also has a calculated wine value through crop loss prevention, and other direct impact on wine sales not associated with crop loss. The seven CCOVI programs and service areas evaluated were: grapevine cold hardiness, ladybugs, new wine styles, icewine, CCOVI services, workshops/ seminars and conferences. The industry assessed these programs to have a direct economic benefit to the industry of $58 million. The total economic impact generated from this direct benefit was calculated to be $86,338,750. Brock’s investment in CCOVI and government- and industry-supported research and development generated an additional $4,785,176 in economic impact to the province in 2014-2015. This was determined by looking at the individual impacts of Brock’s annual investment in CCOVI, the impact from government funding, student services and the impact of revenue generated from CCOVI services.

Through special events, such as the Experts Tasting, CCOVI works to heighten the level of industry expertise through targeted education.

Other significant highlights in the report included that the annual impact of the institute’s activities creates 307 jobs with an estimated labour income of $16,800,269, and avoids an annual crop loss of 3,362 tonnes of grapes. “The size of CCOVI’s impact on the industry demonstrates that the institute’s combination of research, outreach, and education activities are not only being used, but also embraced by the industry they were designed for,” says Inglis.

Jet Label and Packaging acquires the assets of Challenge Label


n 2011 Jet Label made inquiries about purchasing Challenge Label. At the time, a deal could not be agreed upon, and this became the turning point in the decision to buy the first HP6600 in Canada back in 2012 and then adding a second one in 2013. Now four years later, we are happy to announce that the assets of Challenge Label of Kelowna, B.C. belong to Jet Label. The asset purchase caps a very busy growth year, as earlier in 2015 the company expanded into an additional 18,000-squarefoot space. In the fall, co-owners Darrell Friesen and Rod Froment made the decision to purchase additional digital press equipment and upgrade the building to facilitate acquisitions.

Friesen said that they have invested over $5 million in the past four years to buy equipment that is changing how Jet Label goes to print, as well as the composition of the labeling and applications that the marketplace is moving to. “Back in 2012, we identified a significant need in Western Canada for a digital label house that also could provide excellent conventionally printed labels, and we are continuing by investing in both digital and flexographic to support businesses in Western Canada.” Jet Label has offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Prince George, Kelowna, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg. o

Jet Label will be printing labels for their customers on any one of their 15 presses. The acquired assets start arriving in December 2015 and are being commissioned over Christmas. New digital equipment is expected to be operational at the end of January 2016. “We are undoubtedly the largest label company in Western Canada. We have the capacity and equipment to produce labels and tags that dominate the marketplace for format, fit and function,” said Friesen. “We are really pleased with the asset purchase, Challenge produced very good quality with their equipment. Included in the sale were all of the plates, dies and label manufacturing specifications. Of the 500-plus Challenge customers, there is less than 10 per cent on our existing customer base,” Froment adds.

Barrels serve many unique and beneficial purposes when it comes to the ageing of wine. They enhance the wine with one-of-a-kind compounds that affect both the taste and overall structure. They also assist in deepening the colour of the wine, enhancing its stability, providing more balance and creating a fatter bodied wine.

Eric Mercier, president of Premier Wine Cask.


good wine can be ruined by a bad barrel. That is why Premier Wine Cask provides their clients with top-of-theline barrels made out of the best materials with utmost precision and attention to detail.


Established in 2006 and located deep in the heart of Napa Valley wine country, the goal of Premier Wine Cask is to provide the finest-quality French and American oak barrels accompanied by the best customer service in the industry. The company works with several

The benefits of ageing wine in a barrel are many, but these desired outcomes are not possible without the perfect barrel. That is where Premier Wine Cask comes in. Premier Wine Cask are exclusive representatives for Darguad & JaeglĂŠ barrels to the North American market. They also represent Barrel As-

sociates’ Deep Toast, as well as Water Bent and Fire Bent American oak barrels to the international market. The company takes exceptional pride in their Darguad & Jaeglé barrels, crafted to perfection and used in some of the top wineries around the world. These particular barrels are created by using a unique water bending process that integrates heat from an oak-burning fire deep and directly into the wood to provide a subtle hint of spiciness that is unique to this specific type of barrel. Darguad & Jaeglé is the oldest cooperage to be using this process and their attention to detail can be recognized in the wine itself. This same technique is used on some of Premier Wine Casks’ American oak barrels as well, keeping in line with the precise craftsmanship the company prides themselves in. Not only does Premier Wine Cask service the market with top-of-the-line oak barrels, they also offer other products to meet the growing needs of their clients, like the Coquard Bucket Press for exam-

ple. Coquard Presses is one of the topquality providers of grape presses in the industry. They are commonly known for their sparkling wine production, but have recently created a red wine press called the Bucket Press. The Bucket Press is unique in that it helps save time with the use of its bucket rotation system. Minimal movement of the pomace allows the wine to separate without abasing the skin, helping to create a quality final product. The Bucket Press is now available to the North American market through Premier Wine Cask. This addition to their product roster is just another fine example of the top-quality goods they offer to their clientele around the world. “I have been visiting and working with fellow Canadian (winemakers) since the early 1990s, and I am very impressed with the overall quality of the wines we are able to taste today,” says Mercier. “I am humbled with the idea that we have been able to play a small part in their success story, now and into the future.” o

Anton Paar


nton Paar is an Austrian high-precision measuring instrument manufacturer and the world’s leading provider of alcohol and density measurement in the wine industry. It has been a partner to the wine industry for decades and it has done so by the creation of instruments, such as the DMA 35, the Alex 500, and the Alcolyzer Wine M/ ME.


The Alcolyzer Wine M/ME provides precise alcohol determination of wine, sparkling wine, cider, rice wine, alcopops, and fermenting must.

Daily density checks on fermenting wine can be considerably faster with the portable density metre DMA 35, compared to methods such as glass hydrometers. A DMA 35 single measurement takes a few seconds and requires a small sample of only two milliliters. The temperature influence on the measured value is automatically compensated. To speed up checks even further, an RFID tag programmed with a

leading the wine industry to great tasting wine unique sample name is attached to the wine tank or barrel. Anton Paar’s DMA 35 reads this RFID tag and identifies the name of a sample in just one second. As Andrew Cameron from Delegat’s Wine Estate Winery in New Zealand reports, “We have recently equipped our entire stainless-steel winery (more than 300 tanks) with RFID tags. In the past, we always had the problem of having to keep handwritten records and manually type in the extensive lists of data into a spreadsheet. Many hours of data entry and re-sampling due to transcription errors have now been reduced due to automatic data handling.” As the sample ID is saved with the measured values, results are traceable no matter how many different instruments and operators are involved in the measuring process. Anton Paar’s latest innovation, Alex 500, an alcohol and extract metre, can be used for all samples in the entire production process, from fermentation monitoring to quality control of the bottled product. When the compact, robust, and easily operated instrument is used in the fermentation monitor mode, it directly displays a fermentation curve assigned to a tank via sample ID. At the end of the wine’s fermentation, it can be switched to its standard mode to determine the wine’s alcohol and total extract content with lab-grade accuracy. Alex

Anton Paar’s DMA 35 reads an RFID tag attached to a barrel or wine tank, which identifies the name of the sample in one second.

500 measures alcohol with an accuracy of 0.2 per cent v/v and determines density with an accuracy of 0.001 g/ cm³. With these numbers, winery masters can be certain about their wine’s taste and quality, but best of all, they can be sure their winemaking process is reliably monitored and undesired deviations in production are immediately corrected. Winemakers can take the testing process into their own hands. The Alcolyzer Wine M/ME provides precise alcohol determination (per cent v/v) of wine, sparkling wine, cider, rice wine, alcopops and fermenting must. It uses a NIR-based patented method (US 6,690,015; AT 406711) to determine the alcohol content in a highly alcohol-

specific range. For this reason, the other constituents of the beverage do not influence the result and the measurement is valid for all vintages, regions and products. Another perk of the Alcolyzer Wine M/ME is that it measures completely different samples (e.g. red and white wine) one after another with the same adjustment and no cleaning required between measurements. To increase efficiency even more, the Plug and Play Xsample 122 sample changer automates up to 24 measurements at once. With the Xsample 122, filling and measurement takes less than three minutes per sample. With these Anton Paar solutions, wine producers will not have to look back at their past, but they will only look for-

Better serving high-end label market fuels Tapp Label’s acquisitions and growth


ecent acquisitions by Tapp Label Company, LLC, have brought new capabilities and greater local access for producers of wines, spirits, beers, and other beverages. The company has grown at an astounding pace, but CEO and president David Bowyer’s growth strategy is based on systematically acquiring label companies across North America. While most business acquisitions take more than a year to negotiate a sale and integrate the company, Bowyer has acquired four companies during the past 18 months. The goal for the company’s acquisition plan is to find ways to better serve the high-end label market, which accounts for half of Tapp Label’s business. Wines, spirits, beers, and other beverages need shelf appeal in order to be seen in the increasingly competitive space. Currently, wineries, wine conglomerates, and large food and agricultural companies are served by the west coast operations; while spirits, pharmaceutical, and health and beauty sectors are served by their LEED-certified Toronto plant.

Products and processes In addition to a variety of traditional label products, Tapp also produces in-mold, shrink sleeves, and flexible packaging. The main focus remains on high-quality, traditionally printed labels produced on flexo, waterless-offset, or digital-offset presses. This is because customers – especially graphic designers – demand digital offset due to its precision and ability to achieve high resolution and variable graphics on uncoated labels. Embellishments include embossing, foiling, and high-resolution screens. “These days, we can accomplish all that – and more – with digital presses,” says Bowyer. “We’re doing award-winning work for customers on digital equipment.” According to Bowyer, new digital presses provide the quality designers need with cost and time savings because there is a dramatic decrease in waste. In addition, the presses can handle very short or long runs, accommodate a variety of substrates, and are able to overprint on foil. The presses can also produce variable output such as sequential numbering for security, decoration, or differentiation.

The use of digital printing epitomizes Bowyer’s lean operating approach.

The future While Bowyer believes that two labels per bottle will continue to be the norm for wine labels, he sees shifts to shrink labels and newer packaging options for other beverages. He also sees digital presses enabling innovations in wine labeling. As the company has grown, they have still kept their focus on delivering superior customer service and the best-quality labels possible. This means an emphasis on creating an environment that allows each employee to be his or her best. “When I’m walking through the plant, employees will stop me to shake hands,” says Bowyer. “They’re excited to be part of what we’re creating.” And what Tapp Label creates is awardwinning labels for wine, spirits, beer, and other markets, on time and on budget. Keeping their customers happy by making sure that everything Tapp Label prints adds value to our customers’ portfolios. o


Austrian cider industry equipment pioneers launch into North America By Peter Glockner

While the cider-making process is very similar to making white wine, it’s the processing equipment that differentiates it the most. Let’s take a look at the cider-making process from an equipment standpoint. Fruit reception/washing: The first stage involves washing the fruit. This can either be achieved on a small scale by hand-washing in self-draining lugs or, at higher production volumes, an integrated bin-dumper/water bath can be incorporated to handle half-ton bins of fruit.

The VORAN Belt Press EPB500.


ith apple cider now the fastest-growing alcoholic beverage category on the continent, Austrian equipment manufacturers VORAN Machinery picked the perfect time to launch their extensive product line into the North American marketplace. Canadian company, Cellar-tek Supplies signed on as their full-service distributors in Canada and Washington/ Oregon states and we are very excited to be working with one of the most re-


spected fruit and vegetable processing equipment manufacturers in the world. VORAN is a family owned Austrian company established in 1925 whose manufacturing facilities reflect the most stateof-the-art technologies available today. However, despite their continuous investment in manufacturing innovation, it was a dedication towards listening to their customers’ needs that kindled their growth and earned them the title of cider industry leaders.

Fruit milling: To facilitate the release of juice, the fruit is fed either by hand or automatically into a shredding mill. Mills range in design from small, free-standing units with manual feeding at 650 to 2,000 kg/hour, to automatic, integrated mills that directly feed a continuous belt press at volumes up to 8,000 kg/hour. Fruit pressing: To separate juice from the shredded pulp, one of three common press designs are implemented. The most basic design, the basket press, is one that has survived since the early Greco-Roman period. The pulp is loaded into a “basket”, historically made of vertically aligned wooden slats spaced to allow the juice to run out. A hydraulic ram has replaced the traditional screw to apply pressure on the pulp from above. The pressure is increased by lowering the ram incrementally and allowing the juice to flow at each level

The pressure is increased until the juice stops flowing. Using the basket press with capacities of 180 to 300 kg/hour is labour intensive, however, the entry-level pricing is what usually attracts small, start-up producers. The packing press represents the next step of refinement in cider press technology. The design is similar to the basket press with its use of hydraulic ram pressure to extract the juice. The difference lies in the evenly packed layers of pulp separated with screens and drain inserts that allow for higher juice yields. The packing press still relies heavily on

The most efficient method for cider pressing is the self-cleaning continuous belt press. This design accepts a continuous feed of shredded pulp and extracts the juice by forcing the pulp between two porous mesh belts with a series of tensioned rollers. The belts are constantly running in a loop configuration with automatic rinsing to keep them cleared of pulp for high-yield pressing. Dry pulp is expelled from the press and can be collected in a half-ton bin for easy

Fermentation & beyond: Once the juice is pressed, the remaining processes used to produce cider are very similar to those used in making white wine. There are a number of specialty yeasts and enzymes recommended for cider fermentations and more products are being developed every year as the cider industry rapidly evolves. Ask your trusted local supplier for more details on cider-specific products and the technical support to use them correctly. o


A.O. Wilson: Model supplier for the Canadian wine industry Ontario-based company looks for new ways to expand services and support local winemakers

and offer them at the reception. It’s a very unique product – one of many!”

A.O. Wilson president Graham Wilson and vice-president Anne-Marie Rasenberg.


ver the years, A.O. Wilson has experienced many ups and downs alongside the Canadian beverages industry – so it’s no surprise that they’re excited by the opportunities available in recent years. New businesses are springing up and the company is looking forward to growing alongside these fresh faces. A.O. Wilson has been serving the beverages industry for 70 years now. Founded by company president Graham Wilson’s grandfather in 1945, the company’s initial success with breweries evolved to focus more on local wineries in the 1970s. Since then, A.O. Wilson has remained committed to providing Canadian winemakers with the latest


technological advantages, high-quality products and exceptional service. To achieve these goals, A.O. Wilson has established strong partnerships with local and international suppliers alike. Many of these suppliers are also family owned and operated – similar to A.O. Wilson themselves. This network of likeminded companies is what allows Wilson and his team to continue expanding their services in new ways. “We’re looking to start working more with producers of sparkling wines,” Wilson elaborates. “For example, we offer custom-printed wire caps in small quantities of around 1,000 through one of our partners. If you’re getting married, you can put your picture on top of the bottle

A.O. Wilson’s specialty has always been their wide range of packaging options: capsules and closures, corks and screw caps. But the company has managed to become a one-stop shop supplier for wineries, without compromising quality or service. Beside this variety, the company’s big advantage is their 20,000+-square-foot warehouse, located in Erin, Ontario. “We can ship across Canada from Erin, or from our other warehouse space in Kelowna, B.C,” Wilson explains. “This inventory allows us to accommodate orders that another company wouldn’t be able to handle. It really sets us apart from our competitors.” It’s clear why A.O. Wilson is a model supplier to the Canadian wine industry: their experience, family oriented approach, and high-quality products provide an advantage! o

Captivating capsules at



ast year Ramondin celebrated its 125th year in business with 25 of those years as a wellestablished company in Napa, California. This year we have reached a new milestone with the completion of our new office and Polylam manufacturing plant, also in Napa. With this new facility just around the corner from the old office, we are now positioned to better serve our customers with the same highquality closures, but now with shortened transit times. Here at Ramondin, and in particular the U.S. office, we have a shared sense of

pride for this new undertaking. Our new 43,000-square-foot facility not only includes the production/manufacturing area, but also increased area for meetings, training, and customer support. We have increased our sales and customer support staff as well in order to better serve our clients in this exciting time of transition. The office staff is now able to work hand in hand with our production crew, which will shorten both lead times and response time. Eliminating wait times and training employees for new skill sets are just some of our continuous objectives.

Logically, this project required a big investment. We have done so because our U.S. customers are very important to us and they deserve the best service we can provide. We are always trying to improve, and our newly developed marketing campaigns aim at just that. In addition to Polylam capsules, Ramondin continues to be the world leader in production and innovation of other products: tin and aluminum capsules, screw caps, champagne/ sparkling wine capsules and wire hoods. o

east, bacteria, filters, fining agents, oak, analytical equipment, and more. Gusmer Enterprises has the full range of products for wine, cider, juice, beer, and distilled spirits processing. A family business that started over 90 years ago is stronger than ever and committed to beverage processors large and small. It all started with two brothers and a wax coating for beer barrels in 1918. Three generations later, the company is a major manufacturer and supplier of beverage products and services, with five locations across North America, including production facilities, research and development laboratories, warehousing, and full sales support.


“We have always taken a technical approach to working with customers,” says Rodger Pachelbel, vice-president of market development for Gusmer Enterprises. “Gusmer is known for strong products and also strong application support.” In order to fully support customers, Gusmer likes to hire technical people – winemakers, brewers, juice processors, chemists, microbiologists – people who came from the industry and understand processing. It’s not enough to just supply products if those products can’t be backed up with support. Gusmer is strongly committed to quality, and often partners with other quality-driven manufacturers.

Gusmer Enterprises’ analytical laboratory in Napa, California.

“Quality and quality certification has become a major necessity for food and beverage processors, and in turn, processors are looking for that same emphasis from suppliers,” says Pachelbel. In addition to being ISO-certified, Gusmer has dedicated GMP (good manufacturing practices) facilities and processes, which are regularly audited by third-party auditors. Gusmer partners with leading suppliers, such as Chr. Hansen, Millipore, Novozymes, FOSS, BASF, and others, all of which have strong quality programs. In addition to conventional products, Gusmer likes to push the envelope with new and innovative products. Some of the interesting products recently released include pure and mixed cultures of non-Saccharomyces yeast strains (Pichia kluyveri, Lachancea thermotolerans, and Torulaspora delbrueckii) from Chr. Hansen; hybridized yeast strains that cannot produce hydrogen sulfide from renaissance yeast; and Gusmer’s own time-release fermentation nutrients. These products are all designed to offer winemakers, cidermakers, brewers, and distillers interesting tools that will allow for unique and a full expression of the flavours and aromas in their products. Gusmer works with Bucher Vaslin and FOSS as the exclusive distributor and factory-authorized service agent for cross-flow filters and analytical instrumentation. Bucher Vaslin’s line of cross-flow filters are widely used in North America for wine and cider processing, and are well-known for gentle treatment of wines and ciders. FOSS’ OenoFoss and WineScan are

Top nursery returns to Canada with strict vine testing process His nursery has sold millions of vines, all of them with a strong record of success. No matter where the rootstock or bud wood originates from (certified blocks, or the new 2010 protocol), nothing beats the peace of mind that is brought about by individual plant testing before grafting season. This gives Eckhard’s customers the utmost confidence that they have a tested product and helps to protect the enormous investment that vineyard owners make in their operations.

Eckhard Kaesekamp of Euro Grapevine Nursery and Knights Grapevine Nursery.


or nearly 15 years, the name Euro Grapevine Nursery was synonymous in Canada with high-quality virus-free grapevines. Eckhard Kaesekamp chose to immigrate in 1987 from Germany to Ontario, Canada and brought with him Europe’s best practices in grapevine growing. He expanded his nursery into the region’s top source for grapevines and built many friendships among wine grape growers – friendships that still exist today. In 2001, Eckhard had the opportunity to serve Northern California and the Napa Valley growing region, and he decided to take up that challenge. He continues his successful California nursery today and has differentiated his nursery with a


singular focus – growing virus-tested vines. He’s never forgotten how Canada embraced him and helped him get his start, and he still takes great pride in serving the Canadian grapevine market, providing growers with grapevines that are as healthy as possible. Eckhard uses the strictest testing process available. He tests each individual plant to ensure high-quality vines. This is unique from most of his competitors, who only test a sample of vines. He’s able to provide this level of testing with only minimal added cost to the customer. It’s a thorough, transparent process that represents a big difference between his independent family owned nursery and large corporate nurseries.

The vine testing process at Knights Grapevine Nursery – the successor to Eckhard’s original Canadian-based Euro Grapevine Nursery – is simple, but crucial. It starts with the selection of healthy vines. Then, samples are taken from each and every plant. Samples are sent to the lab for testing, and the lab sends back results. Once positive results are confirmed, grafting is performed. Eckhard has access to the largest grapevine selection in the world, and since 2014, in response to the outbreak of red blotch, he has tested every plant for viruses. There are no exceptions. It’s this level of care for his product that makes his grapevines exceptional. Whether it was through his original Euro Grapevine Nursery, based in Canada, or his thriving California-based Knights Grapevine Nursery, Eckhard Kaeskamp understands that protecting vines against viruses means nothing less than protecting a vineyard owners’ future. o
