    Hello everybody, I just watched mare tv and followed the part issueing the wineries, particularly Grand Pré. It was said that the founder of Grand Pré were Swiss, named Stutz. It is really impressive what you achieved, and I was also impressed by the way you produce the ice wine!
    Myself, I life in Trasadingen, surrounded by Blauburgender grapes… Some 12 years agon I visited Montreal and I regret to passing by at Bay of Fundy. Best wishes and regards, Claude Bürki, former resident of Canada during the sixties (I’m an old fart)….
