Local Wine Tastings!

Ontario VQA Wine

We welcome Stanners Vineyard from Prince Edward County, to our market.

  • 2012 Chardonnay – Aromas and flavours of apple, pineapple, and honey. A chardonnay with intense fruit, a sensuous, rich mouthfeel and excellent length. A full bodied wine with great interest and intrigue!
  • 2011 Pinot Noir – Our traditional approach with minimal handling in the winery has resulted in a wine that reflects the County terroir – floral with bright strawberry flavours, good minerality and finely balanced acidity.
  • 2011 Straw House Red – A blend of cabernet franc and pinot noir – cherry and dill flavours balanced by fine tannins – very food friendly
  • 2012 Cabernet Franc – A new release! Dark cherry and blackberry flavours with pleasing tannins, resulting in an outstanding complex and long-lasting finish. A great sense of purity!
