The aromas on this wine are incredible, with honeycomb, pine needle, fresh
hay and apple sauce; nuances of ginger root, candied orange peel, green
tea and jasmine. The dry palate is quite sour creamy up front with a touch of tannin, lemon curd, white flowers and saltiness.

50% was fermented on the skins in an open top vessel and aged sur lie in
neutral, 500L French oak barrels for 12 months; 50% underwent a 12-hour
skin soak prior to fermenting in stainless steel and ageing for 12 months
sur lie; both lots were fermented using exclusively indigenous yeasts and for short time under a veil of flor.

Prova – meaning 'trial' in Italian – is a wine that applies low-intervention
winemaking and viticultural techniques to small batches of fruit from
Cave Spring's Beamsville Bench estate. 


The winery was founded in 1986 by the Pennachetti family and former, long-term winemaker Angelo Pavan in the historic former Jordan Winery, with cellars dating to 1871. Now Angelo's right hand, Gabe DeMarco is continuing to push Cane Springs' deserved reputation for excellence and innovation. 

Cave Spring was Ontario’s first Certified Sustainable winery, under Sustainability Winemaking Ontario (SWO). Over and above SWO minimum standards, Cave Spring is a regional leader in applying organic methods in the vineyards, including biological root, vineyard floor and canopy management treatments in addition to biodiversity initiatives aimed at controlling pests and mechanical weed control. In the cellars, a globally innovative waste-water treatment system, extensive use of lightweight glass and cork closures, and environmentally sustainable label printing support this commitment
