Soils are generally deep and well drained and numerous streams provide seasonal water supply. Although a relatively small appellation, the Beamsville Bench exhibits a unique set of conditions that establishes these wines as being some of the best of the Niagara region. Warm summer heat, beginning in May and continuing well into the third week of October, gaurantees a long growing season and fully mature, well ripened grapes come harvest time. Soils vary from shale, limestone, gravel, sand and clay , creating natural unique characteristics to the wines of this appellation.
