FRESH Sparkles VQA
FRESH is famous for fun, fruit-forward blends. True to its name, this bubbly’s green apple and white peach flavours are naturally fitting. Why not crack it open and add festivity to any moment?
Seasons Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
This red is fabulous enough for the finest restaurants, but still easygoing. Big and spicy, it's delicious with hearty casseroles or sturdy cheese.
Pillitteri Revelry Viognier 2013
This regal white hails from Ontario’s 2015-16 "Grape King." From a Niagara winery with old world roots, this wine is fragrant with flower blossom and peach aromas. Try it with curry or Thai food.
Pillitteri Blossom Rosé 2013
Three generations collaborated on this fruity rosé, with sublime results that radiate raspberry and strawberry flavours. Fun, fruity and subtly sweet, try it with seafood or salad.
Vieni Estates Bruce Trail Red 2011
An earthy red with dense tannins and leather notes, this wine is great with steak. Even better, a portion of sales will go to the Bruce Trail Conservancy. How delicious!
Vieni Estates Bruce Trail Rosé Sparkling VQA
Stop and smell the rosé! This local sparkler is all about fragrant bursts of strawberry and cherry. Sip and savour, or try it with pasta. This is a bubbly way to celebrate – and support – our oldest hiking trail.
Strewn Gewürztraminer VQA
This is Niagara Gewürztraminer at its fruity, spicy best. Classic notes of lychee and lemon are intertwined with local Niagara mineral flavours. Sip with something spicy.
Zest for Life
