Winemaking Notes

This is the fifth vintage of Geek Riesling and as the years go by the tank gets bigger but the production volume stays about the same. Hand-picked and hand sorted grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed. Treated the same as our Wismer Riesling for the first two thirds of fermentation, we draw off a portion of the wine when we stop the fermentation for our Riesling and allow the Geek to ferment to dryness in a separate tank. As fermentations from other white-wines (Riesling, Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blanc) were completed, the lees from those fermentations were added to this wine. All the lees from the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 vintages of this wine were added July 29, 2019.  Then after 22 months on lees, the wine was racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered on September 9th, 2020. Our “Solera-lees” system will continue into future vintages until we can answer the question everyone has been asking; how much lees is too much lees? Only the Geek knows.

Tasting Notes

The “Geekiness” continues to rise in this wine. Reductive notes of charcoal smoke and flint beautifully supported by stone fruit, and hints of petrol.  On the pallet there is a rich and creamy texture twinned with the freshness and slight hints of other grape varieties. It is practically immortal and should age for beautifully for the next decade and well beyond. Drink with freshly shucked oysters, sushi, and the geek you love the most.

Total Production:  100 cases


When it comes to shipping, our goal is to find the fastest and most reliable shipping option available to us. During the Covid pandemic, we have made significant changes with our delivery partners to serve you better.

For Toronto deliveries we primarily use Fil Delivery. They have been tremendous and we have had glowing reviews from customers. They update you on the expected delivery time throughout the day to ensure satisfaction. Deliveries leave the winery Mondays and Thursdays for delivery Tuesdays and Fridays.

For deliveries to Hamilton, Burlington and Niagara, winery staff often deliver same day or next. We aim to please as often as possible!

ICS is also used for Major Centers other than Toronto and local. Their delivery times are typically next day from pick up at the winery on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Out of province and small-town Ontario deliveries are packaged appropriately with slow-release heat packs in winter reduce breakage and freezing through CanPar. We review shipping daily to identify issues before they arise. We do our best to help communicate any issues in advance to get the wine to you as quickly as possible.

We offer free shipping to anywhere in Ontario with purchase of 6 bottles or more. Purchases of less than 6 bottles can be accommodated for $10 flat rate. Please call the winery to arrange.

Out or province rates are as follows:

Quebec: $10 flat rate

All other provinces: $25 flat rate


We believe in simplicity, so our refund policy is simple and to the point.

  • If you’d like to return an unopened bottle of wine, we’ll gladly do so for you. No questions asked.
  • If there is a problem with the wines (either a fault or it is not to your liking - which happens very irregularly), we happily provide a credit for the full amount on another bottle at the winery. For delivered wine, we issue a credit to be applied to your next purchase.
  • Our goal is to make you happy and if there is anything that we can do to maximize your enjoyment of a Leaning Post Wine... we will do it.
