Well, HELLO Summer!

Okay, okay, it's still Spring for another month or so, but Victoria Day always feels like the start of Summer, don't you think? At the very least, it's the weekend when we dust off the bbq and garden furniture and get settled in for Summer entertaining.

On that note, if you need wine for the weekend, we're open 10-6 on Friday, Saturday and holiday Monday, and 11-6 on Sunday. May we suggest the following pairings to make your entertaining easier?

  • Grilled Pancetta-Wrapped Asparagus. Asparagus is in season and it is glorious! However, pairing this delicious perennial with wine can be challenging. Grilling the 'gus helps by adding a charry depth to the vegetable's fresh grassiness, while the additional salty meatiness of the pancetta makes this a perfect pairing with our luscious Riesling Loved By Lu, $17.95
  • Pork-Fennel Burger. There's something about juicy pork shoulder meat paired with black pepper and fennel in this Mark Bittman recipe that has us reaching for our shopping bags and a bottle (or two) of Baco Noir, $16.95. Plus, any recipe that starts out with the words "For this burger, you need fat" has got to be a winner ;)
  • Victoria Sponge. If, by Monday, you're feeling a little Anglophilia coming on and want to celebrate Victoria Day in style, a slice of this traditional British dessert and a flute of chilled Fancy Farm Girl Flirty Bubbles ($29.95) make for a perfect tribute. 

If you can't make it to the winery this weekend, stop by your local LCBO to pick up a bottle or two of Fancy Farm Girl Frivolous White, (LCBO #:394072). Chill it well and serve with Bon Appetit's Garlic & Rosemary Grilled Chicken with Scallions.  

Have a wonderful, safe and relaxing long weekend everyone!

 

Mother's Day 2017 - Celebrate with Sparkling

2nd Annual
Mother's Day Sparkling Tasting

Sunday, May 14
11 am to 6pm

Celebrate Mother's Day with a stop at the winery for our Sparkling Tasting event, featuring both of our award-winning sparkling wines!

What's that? BOTH sparkling wines? Yes, that's right! Mother's Day is the one and only time of year we feature our 2013 Fancy Farm Girl Flirty Bubbles in the tasting room. Inspired by Sue-Ann's mom Wendy's joie de vivre (not to mention her love for sparkling wine), this gorgeous bubbly is a perfect pink celebration of mothers everywhere. 

Bring your mom in for a complimentary tasting (plus specially paired nibbles) of our 2013 Fancy Farm Girl Flirty Bubbles, as well as our Double-Gold winning 2013 Iridescence, on Sunday, May 14 from 11 am to 6 pm. As a special thank you, we'll also give every mom a complimentary plant for their garden*!

Sparkling, flowers and mom -- three of Sue-Ann's favourite things, all wrapped up in one festive day!

No reservation necessary, just come on in!

February, the dullest month, just got a whole lot better

Fluff Up Your February

Our last promotional event for the Fancy Farm Girl wines in the LCBO was so popular, we decided to repeat it and make February a little be fancier, a little be fluffier, and a little bit feathery....

This month only, receive a free feather boa with every bottle of Fancy Farm Girl Frivolous White at the LCBO. $14.95 gets you a fresh and vibrant bottle of white wine and a little somethin' somethin' extra :) Available at an LCBO near you!

last year's feather boa promo worked so well, we did it again!
