Excellence in vineyard practices

The Cuvée Vineyard of Excellence Award was presented to Gerald Klose by Oleta Larush, of BASF Inc.

Brock University’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) organizes the annual Cuvée celebration of Ontario VQA wines. As part of this year’s event, the prestigious Cuvée Vineyard of Excellence Award went to Gerald Klose, whose Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario vineyard has some of Ontario’s oldest vines. Sponsored by BASF Canada Inc., the award recognizes a grape grower who promotes excellence in vineyard practices. Klose was chosen by an expert panel for maintaining a high level of quality in his Chardonnay vineyard. Besides running his family farm, Klose also manages other vineyards across Niagara for Constellation Brands.
