Niagara takes over Canopy Growth vineyard

February 13, 2020

Niagara College’s Teaching Winery will take over operations at the Concession 5 Vineyard, a Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyard property owned by Canopy Growth. The take-over will “sow the seeds” for new learning opportunities for wine students, where they will learn about environmentally and socially sustainable practices, as well as different terroir and grape varietals than are used at the college’s Teaching Winery. “With grape growing and wine production integral to Niagara’s economy, we applaud Canopy Growth’s decision to preserve the vineyards on this Niagara-on-the-Lake property,” said Niagara President Dan Patterson. “We are proud to be a part of this historic new partnership that bridges Niagara’s established wine industry with its emerging cannabis production industry, and we’re dedicated to applying our expertise in a manner that will benefit our students and the community.”  Newswire  | Niagara  (ON)
