The first time I met Thomas and Mary Delany Bachelder was in 2018 at a tasting of Canadian wines at the Trafalgar Square embassy in London. In front of them on the table was a map of Ontario’s Niagara wine region with names and arrows handwritten all over it, pointing to single vineyards. ‘Discovering and channelling terroir is our raison d’être,’ they said.

Historically, terroir has not been the focus of Canadian wineries, but the Bachelders are one of a handful of producers that are attempting to do just that: unearthing and interpreting the region’s vineyards. My curiosity piqued, I decided to revisit Niagara, and the Bachelders, to find out more.
