Malivoire Wine is the magnum opus of Martin Malivoire. As a director of motion picture special effects, Martin’s career encompassed everything from television’s “Wayne and Shuster Comedy Hour” to such Hollywood big-screen attractions as “Resident Evil”, “A Christmas Story” and “Hairspray”. After thirty years, Martin decided the time for a change had come.
The results came rapidly with the purchase in 1995 of what is now known as the Moira Vineyard, followed by the acquisition of the larger property where the winery now stands. Original plantings of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Gamay and Pinot Noir were supplemented in the following years by additional vinifera varieties. Today, thanks to burgeoning demand, Malivoire operates at the top of its capacity, producing twenty-four thousand cases of wine per year.
Frank Grammatico, Southwestern Ontario Rep and 'Winemaker of the Year' Shiraz Mottiar will be presenting at the event on September 12th. It will be a memorable evening for all.
