New Red Wine Released

Every year we have received more requests for an "unoaked" red wine. Last year with our 2008 vintage we created this new vintage for us. It is a blend of three of our 2008 red vinages in a very fruit forward, unoaked style.

This is a low tannin red, done very fruit forward, but dry (0), and no oak. It is a deep red in colour and taste, very fruity. It matches well with most heavy foods, red meats, tomato sauce pasta's and cheeses. We are excited by the very early response to this new red, which offers the health benefits of a red while remaining low in tannins to those sensitive to them.

Essex Wine Review's July Wine of the Month

Thank you! Another great compliment to our Summer Sun Cabernet!

" Get this while you can! Stock of this "Wine of the Month" is running low and may be sold out by the end of the month, if not sooner!Having tasted all of the local rosé style wines this was by far our favourite summer time sipper. Just chill and serve this wine is perfect to sip on during one of those hot summer days. Made from Cabernet Franc grapes grown in the Lake Erie North Shore region this is one excellent local wine.Available directly from the winery and also at some LCBO locations in Windsor and Essex County."
