Our Wines

All of our wines begin with attentive viticultural practices applied throughout the growing season ending with hand harvesting our grapes with care to ensure only the highest quality grapes are processed.  Following harvest, we use gentle methods to process our grapes to produce our handcrafted wines.  Our wines are fermented in stainless steel and aged in oak barrels or stainless steel depending on the style of wine being produced.  We are proud of our wines and look forward to sharing them with you.

Frontenac Blanc 2018

This is our second vintage of  Frontenac Blanc.

Our Frontenac Blanc can be enjoyed on its own but has the weight and acidity to pair with salmon, pork or poultry dishes.

Frontenac Rosé 2018

**SOLD OUT**This is our second vintage of rose. 

Made from our Frontenac Noir grapes, this is not your average rosé.

Frontenac Noir 2016

Our Frontenac Noir 2016 is an elegant example of a cold climate wine.  Made from 100% Frontenac Noir grapes from Vineyard #1, this wine is a medium bodied, aged for 24 months in French oak with aromas of both black and red fruit, dark chocolate, mint, sweet spice, vanilla and smoke. The tannins are medium and the acidity is medium+.

Marquette 2017

 

Our second vintage of Marquette, hand harvested from  Vineyard #3 and barrel-aged for 24 months, this vintage does not disappoint.  

Marquette 2017 offers notes of dark fruit (cherries, currents and blackberries) and Red fruit (cherries, raspberry), baking spice, black pepper, mint, tobacco with a hint of vanilla and ends with a long dark fruit, sour cherry finish. The tannins in this wine are present but not overpowering and will allow this wine to age nicely.  With good acidity, this wine is juicy, succulent and makes you want to return to your glass for more.  Enjoy on its own or pair with BBQ beef, wild meat dishes, dark chocolate fondu, aged cheeses or your favourite charcuterie board.

Marquette 2017
Barrel 8 Reserve

When we tasted this barrel, we knew we had something special going on with this wine.

The special barrel is Barrel 8, a Hungarian Oak barrel which held our Marquette for 24 months.

This wine has a beautiful nose of dark cherry, smoke and mint and when the wine opens, you are further rewarded with cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of black pepper. The tannins are medium and the acidity is a medium plus – this wine will age well, but is very enjoyable now.

Price: $36.00 (includes tax and bottle deposit)

1812 Fortified

This wine is a sweet fortified Frontenac Gris.  If you had one word to describe this wine, it would be “yum”.  With aroma notes of butterscotch, apricot and peach and flavours of ripe stone fruit with bright acidity and the warmth of alcohol, this wine is special. The alcohol and wine have integrated nicely resulting in a smooth, balanced and delicious taste experience. 

This wine is fun to drink on its own, or would pair nicely with spicy poultry dishes or perhaps a custard style dessert.

 

Price: $25.00 (includes tax and bottle deposit)

1793 Fortified

This wine is a sweet fortified Frontenac Noir. It is best described as Christmas in a glass! With aroma and flavour notes of dark fruit, such as black cherry, plum and blueberries; nuts, baking spice and a kiss of oak . 

The alcohol and oak have integrated nicely with the wine which balances with the acidity to ensure this wine can stand on its own or pair nicely with food. This special wine would compliment any dessert, an aged cheese, chocolate or just a wee sip by a fire.

375ml –  $20.00 (includes tax and bottle deposit)
