As part of a short miniseries we decided to grab the opportunity to visit some of our Good Food Fighter wineries in Niagara just as the 2013 harvest began.

Notwithstanding, Senchuk's wines do tend to polarise the crowd, their extremely delicate nature and occasional funky notes certainly not appealing to everyone.
