From The County to the Escarpment to Lake Erie and beyond, Ontario is growing some beautiful grapes and turning them into some of the best wines we�ve ever had! This season, OCTA�s staff are pouring their 12 favourite #LCBOgolocal wines � just in time for the upcoming holiday season. Come discover what�s in our glass!
Three Italian bricklayers, Alfredo, Enzo and Tiberio decided to fulfill their life dream of building a world-class vineyard, Colio Estate Winery. Following prohibition, this Lake Erie North Shore vineyard received the first winery license to be granted in Southwestern Ontario.
Colio’s Cabernet Franc vines are in the oldest part of the vineyard, named the Old Farm. The rocky soil on the “Old Farm” allow for good drainage as well as healthy fruit and vines. The Bricklayer’s Reward “Old Farm” Cab Franc has pronounced flavours of currants, raspberries and a smooth finish. This wine would pair beautifully with game meats, steak or a rosemary roasted lamb fit for a holiday feast!
