About the Winery
Pearce Family Wines
In the early 2000's Nicholas Pearce was exposed to the garagiste movement in Bordeaux and was particularly inspired by négociants like Jean Luc Thunevin (Saint Emilion), James Sichel (Margaux) and Nicolas Potel (Beaune) from Burgundy.
After returning home to Ontario and starting his own wine company, he has had a hand in making 10+ wines in two hemispheres, 3 countries and 5 different appellations since the 2013 vintage.
Pearce Predhomme is a collaboration of like-minded individuals from around the globe. Founded with a mission to build and import wines from our favourite appellations while offering an unequaled value/quality ratio for the sommeliers & wine buyers in Ontario. This is a project between Toronto Sommelier and entrepreneur Will Predhomme and Ontario wine importer Nicholas Pearce they have partnered with Radford Dale in South Africa and NorthWest Wine Co. in Oregon to create these special cuvées.

Here's a quite delicious, complex, almost swarthy pinot with a sense of what I like to call vinosity - a sort of coming to together of many elements in a way that is generous and complete. Which makes it more difficult to deconstruct. Here the fruit is in the cran-cherry realm with woodsy, spicy, floral and vanillins evenly distributed. It is medium weight, rounded and smooth but not at all soft. Alcohol is a bit enlarged and warming, tannins are quite mellow. But overall there is a great sense of structure and the length is excellent. Tasted November 2021

This is quite a rich purplish red pinot with a fragrant nose of raspberry and rhubarb fruit with soft oak spice and floral notes. The palate is midweight and firm with fine balancing acidity and mature tannin. A long lingering dry finish still has lots of fruit. Well structured and finely balanced with excellent length. Classy and well made for a good price. Tasted November 2021.
