Heard it through the grapevine!

George Clooney at Colchester Ridge Estate Winery? Who knew? Amazing fun facts you can find out when talking about Essex County Wineries! This winery welcomed a visit from the actor himself after dining at a local restaurant serving Crew wine. Which one did he buy? Time for a road trip to find out!

We enjoyed Crew Cabernet Franc 2008 (available in LCBO in January) with cedar planked Canadian Atlantic sugar and spice salmon as an aperitif . An excellent match! A fruit and nut salad from Chatelaine magazine accompanied Crew Riesling 2010.

Both premium quality award wining wines!


Cabernet Franc VQA 200820121118a

This medium-bodied, versatile wine delivers black raspberry and bell pepper with a hint of mushroom on the nose. On the palate the fruit plays a great balancing act with white pepper and mineral notes. The good acidity/fruit balance lingers on the finish, guaranteeing a perfect pairing to many foods. Try it with duck, eggplant & pepper dishes, grilled salmon, pizza or tomato-based dishes


Riesling VQA 2010

This wine shows off the terroir of the area with an enticing nose of floral notes mingled with ‘wet stone’ minerality. On the palate experience a highly viscous wine full of stone fruit and mineral notes with a squeeze20121118 of lime on the finish. Drink now with salads containing fruit or nuts, spicy Asian or Indian food or strong blue cheeses.
