Husband and wife duo Ilya and Nadia started Leaning Post winery in Niagara over 10 years ago. Initially a virtual set up, the winery now located on Highway 8, has become a reference producer in Niagara.

This mixed case includes 2 bottles of each wine:

Leaning Post Sauvignon Blanc VQA Niagara Peninsula 2018. At Leaning Post they like Sauvignon Blanc to reflect their unique terroir and this wine shows it in spades. They picked early to preserve the beautiful mango, passionfruit, and gooseberry aromatics that we all love about the grape. The palate has a fresh acidity with notes of kiwi, gooseberry, and passionfruit as well as a pleasant flinty finish.

Leaning Post Chardonnay 'The Fifty' VQA Niagara Peninsula 2018. This wine is the epitome of Chablis meets Ontario. The nose bursts with lemon zest, aniseed, green apple and toasty lees. Fresh lemon, lemon curd, licorice, and more bright green apple is all tied together with crisp acidity and a strong mineral note. This wine will age well for the next 5-8 years. Try with creamy cheeses, sole meunière, and roasted chicken.

Leaning Post Rosé VQA Niagara Peninsula 2019. Bright and refreshing with a pale colour and great fruit. The nose has watermelon, sour cherry, raspberry, and beautiful floral orange blossom with a fresh juicy palate to round it out. This bright, refreshing Rosé was built for warm summer days and good company!

Leaning Post 'The Fifty' Pinot Noir VQA Niagara Peninsula 2019. A blend of fruit from 5 different Vineyards from 3 different sub-appellations, this wine explodes out of the glass with wonderful raspberry, kirsch, earth and rose-petals on the nose, followed by tobacco leaf, herb and mushroom immediately behind it.

Leaning Post Gamay Wismer-Armbrust Vineyard VQA Niagara Peninsula 2018. The depth of this wine was structured by the warm summer and wet autumn. This wine stays true to the Leaning Post style and terroir of Armbrust Vineyard demonstrates lots of earth, mushroom, and undergrowth on the nose which is complimented by blackberry and cherry fruit with some beautiful freshly picked lavender. In the mouth there is lots of beautiful beet, blackberry, kirsch, and cracked pepper. The finish is long and delectable. This wine will age well for the next 3-5 years. Try with brie, camembert, your favourite burger, or anything on your plate this Thanksgiving.

Leaning Post Cuvée Winona VQA Niagara Peninsula 2018. This blended wine (89% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc) over-delivers massively for the price. The nose is pronounced with dried cranberries, lavender, licorice, cocoa, cedar, and blueberries that the palate replicates and follows with raspberry, vanilla, and rich tannins. It is perfectly drinkable now but will age well over the next 5-8 years. Great with burgers, cured meat, and hard cheese.

About the Winery

Leaning Post

A leaning post is what you find at the beginning of a row of grapes, anchoring the wires that are the frame-work for growing grapevines. It is the beginning of an obsession to translate a time and place into liquid. Leaning Post wines take you to that beginning by finding small, unique plots of land in Niagara and putting them in bottle. Because after stripping away all the fancy buildings and high-tech equipment you are left with a place on this earth that grows wine unlike any other. When you taste that in a glass you just know it. Nadia and Ilya have had to rely on the support of family, friends and financial institutions to make the dream of owning a winery a reality. Leaning Post began as a virtual winery and is so proud to now have the quaint tasting room at 1491 Hwy 8 on their home property in Winona, Ontario.

Ilya and Nadia are the brains and passion behind Leaning Post Wines. It started with a dream to take unique, interesting single vineyard blocks in Niagara and turn them into distinctive, terroir driven wines. Nadia and Ilya first met in their hometown of Winnipeg, MB where their passion for wine and each other was born.

Ilya has been a winemaker in the Niagara Region for the last 17 vintages working at Daniel Lenko Estate Winery, Foreign Affair and now at Leaning Post Wines. Ilya is also a consulting winemaker at the Good Earth Winery. Ilya’s true passion in life is to make world renowned wines from Niagara that really showcase the distinct terroir that Niagara offers.
