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 winesA�we’veA�ever had! A�This season, OCTAa��s staff are pouring their 12 favourite #LCBOgolocal wines a�� just in time for the upcoming holiday season.A�Come discover whata��s in our glass!
“While the winery may be virtual, the Union partnership between winemaker Dr. Allan Jackson and sommelier Andrew von Teichman is very real. A�So too is their mastery of the art of blending wines made from grapes that are suited to our cooler climate. A�One great example of this is their blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah into a fortified Port-style wine called FortA�.”
“This 100% Ontario vintage embodies sticky sweet sun-dried fruit balanced by an acidity that calls out for blue cheese. A�But if you have none in the house, with the cold weather approaching and the holidays almost here, this wine goes just as well with a evening fire with family and friends and the smell of smoke, spruce, and cinnamon. A�That is, unless you have vanilla ice cream in the house, which you may need to pour some of this FortA�A�over, just to say you tried it.”
