The fruit was co-fermented, whole cluster in two small egg vessels. After six days of cool-settling at 10 degrees Celsius, primary fermentation commenced spontaneously and took 23 days to complete.

100% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation, taking one month to complete.
Elevage: Rested in small flexi-eggs for 6 months on skins and stems and then aged in bottle for 13 months.

Therianthropy is a winery project located in the emerging winegrowing region of Creemore Hills, Ontario. It was founded by a group of wine-loving humans who are passionate about cool climate winemaking and believe in unearthing the treasures which are the emerging terroirs of Ontario. 

Vintner David Eiberg came to winemaking after a career in investment banking. He took his love of wine and returned to the University of California Davis to train in oenology and cut his teeth working and harvesting with exceptional winemakers in France, California, Oregon, South Africa and most recently in Southern Ontario. 

Therianthropy's winemaking approaches include: fruit from the best vineyards, wild fermentations, low-intervention winemaking, low S02 and long elevage.
