"This pure, dry Pinot Noir exudes scents of lemon-raspberry Danish pastry and unspools on the palate with sheer flavours of the same dappled with suggestions of bitter orange and ruby grapefruit. Such an elegant, mouthwatering expression of Ontario sparkling rosé."

"The best bubbly, and indeed the best wine period to have emerged thus far from Megalomaniac, this salmon coloured sparkler shows substantial autolysis character (smoky-leesy-toasty notes) alongside ripe red fruit flavours. The finish is long. Clean, classy wine."

Attractive aromas of freshly sliced strawberry and baking bread introduce this dry, Pinot Noir-based, traditional-method sparkler. It slashes across the palate and infuses the aftertaste with a sleek and austere line of racy, ruby red grapefruit and red currant tang. Give it a go with ceviche or poached oysters.

Founded by John Howard, Megalomaniac began as a project to help raise funds for the Kids’ Health Links Foundation. After the original vintage sold out within 90 days, John realized the impact the program might have and the idea of expanding nationally became a strategic opportunity. A second vintage was launched, and since then neither the winery nor the foundation has looked back.
Megalomaniac’s bold branding tactics are at the forefront of the winery’s success. What was originally thought to bring scorn upon the winery has managed to accomplish quite the opposite.
These bottles feature a series of faceless executives wearing the iconic bowler hat accompanied by a unique title generally associated with the Megalomaniac brand. The name itself comes from a brief story that can be found on the back of each bottle.
