This time out I thought I'd look at the wines of Big Head ... the big head himself is Andrzej Lipinski - a guy who got his start at Vineland Estates then turned his talents into a consulting career before settling down in Niagara-on-the-Lake at Hunter Vineyard churning out wines under his own label. In conversation with Andrzej you realize that his mind is always on ways to make his wines better, and at the same time unique - to stand out from all the others cluttering the Niagara landscape - he is also convinced in the high prices for Niagara wines because of the rarity (and unlikelihood) that is Niagara wine ... plus, his 40 odd skus are a testament to his ever shifting mindset about what will make the next great wine. Below you will see some of the best wines on offer at Big Head currently, but don't blink, the next one could be right around the corner.
In addition to the six reviews (plus one International) below be sure to check out the Side Bar for the latest videos, podcasts and links to reviews of older wines, cellar dwellers, published articles, On the Road notes and more.
