Another winery spotlight, and this time I'm looking at the current wines of Leaning Post ... Winemaker Ilya Senchuk and his wife Nadia own the the farm and their own little piece of heaven (and a chicken is never far from the front door of the tasting room), their winery is one of the first you'll pass on your drive from Toronto to Niagara, a mere 50 minutes from the big city (on a "good" traffic day). Their newly renovated and redesigned tasting room is comfortable and ready to greet you, and is a far cry from the old beat up barn experience it once was ... and Ilya is making a number of wines that will both please the masses as well as those special wines he makes for himself, that he hopes you will like too. Below is a list of my 6 top rated, and most exciting, wines currently in their portfolio.
