The following post was supplied by the Grape Growers of Ontario, which is doing a series of videos on the men and women growing the grapes that make Ontario’s spectacular wines. To help share the stories, Eating Niagara is donating space on this website.

“You might say that wine runs in my blood. In the 1930s, my grandfather was one of the first farmers to recognize the Niagara region’s grape-growing potential and in the 1970s, my parents became pioneers in the industry. Even as a boy, I looked forward to the day I’d take over the family operation, and I’ve already got plans for the fourth generation of Falks”.
Trevor Falk is an Ontario grape grower from Niagara-on-the-Lake, featured in the latest video from the Grape Growers of Ontario. The videos have followed the grape growing season from early spring in Prince Edward County with grower Debra Marshall, through berry formation at the Funk Farms, veraison with Kevin Watson, beginning of harvest with the Mitchell family and now take a look at harvest with Trevor Falk.
