This one displays typical l’Acadie varietal style with clean citrus, green herbal and lightly floral aromatics and fresh green apple on the palate. Well made and an excellent match for local fish and shellfish.
A fine Ontario Chardonnay. Straw coloured with an intense nose of lychee, tropical fruit and toasty oak; full-bodied, well structured, fleshy but elegant with caramel and citrus flavours and a nutty finish.
This blend of Carmenère (43%), Merlot (30%), Cab Sauv (21%) and Petit Verdot (6%) varieties seduces with floral, wild berries, vanilla and hints of sage and sweet spice. Gorgeous mouthfeel with velvety tannins on a big, full-bodied frame. Decant before dinner to accompany post-dinner chocolate.

A simple tweet typed out and sent in seconds to no one in particular, just one among the hundreds of thousands that [...]
Great news – there’s a new addition to our family! I wasn’t sure if we really should go for it. But, it was a blustery Saturday morning when I laid eyes on it, and the promise of heat and sunshine took over my thoughts. Our new addition is a dwarf lemon tree loaded with blooms [...]
Oh, the signs were there all along: The extravagant apple cider-themed dinners at his tony restaurant on the waterfront in Burlington, Ontario. The British heritage and the fact that he was raised on the myriad ciders offered in the pubs of London. And his name on Twitter, of course: @ciderseeker. It would appear that it [...]
He is a tall, strapping man, all of 27 years old, and looks more like the star quarterback than a man who tinkers with high-octane booze all day long. But that’s the path master distiller Geoff Dillon, with degrees in biochemistry and economics, has taken in the heart of Niagara wine country. Dillon is on [...]
