THE BILLY MYERS SERIES
The Billy Myers Series, is dedicated to a Niagara grape grower who is respected as a leader for growing grapes of the highest distinction. Bill Myers has dedicated 40 years to grape farming and he is a rare find among growers from around the world. The practices that he has dedicated to his pristine vineyard have positioned him as a pioneer in the industry.
The critieria for a Winter harvest wine to enter into the Billy Myers Series is that the Winter harvest wine would need to have demonstrated quality ongoing for a minimum of 5 years, would need to be a rare varietal used for Winter harvest wine and must have a limited volume of 5 cases/60 bottles or less. The first Winter harvest wine to be entered into this series is the Royal DeMaria 2000 Chardonnay Winter harvest wine which is now listed at a cool $250,000.00 per 375ml bottle. This price reflects the international reputation, credibility and demand for this product which since it’s initial release has won consecutively for 5 years at the world’s most prestigious wine and spirits competition Les Citadelles du Vin, VinExpo, Bordeaux, France 2002-2006, and has also won gold for 5 consecutive years at the coveted Chardonnay-du-Monde held in Chaintre, France, which is a competition between the best Chardonnay in the world.
