As part of Hidden Bench Vineyards and Winery’s commitment to minimize the environmental impact of its operations, owner Harald Thiel has undertaken several initiatives including the use of sustainable agricultural methods, recycling winemaking byproducts, and using geo-thermal energy for heating and cooling. Now, with a 23 kW grid-tied solar power system from Carmanah, Thiel will harvest solar power right along with the Chardonnay and Riesling grapes grown in Hidden Bench’s three vineyards in Beamsville, Ontario.
