The Taylor Pendrith Wine Collection consists of a VQA Red and VQA White wine, grown and produced in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.

Taylor and winery founder Gary Pillitteri celebrated the wine launch with a toast at the winery on October 2nd, sharing golf tips and winemaking secrets over a glass of the newly released wines. “This is a wonderful collection of wines we have created for Taylor. I am excited to see the wines shared and enjoyed by golfers around the country and to celebrate a talented young golfer in Taylor”, Gary said while tasting the wines. Taylor added that “This partnership is an exciting opportunity. I have always loved wine but tasting through a series of wines to create my own blend has been quite the educational experience and learning about winemaking is something I have really enjoyed. I look forward to sharing my new wines with family, friends, and fans of golf everywhere.”
