Sue-Ann & I have been friends since I started The Savvy Grapes over 13 years ago. She was the first woman winemaker we featured at a winemakers dinner showcasing her talent at Pillitteri Estates Winery. And she wowed everyone with the delicious wines she made and most of all, her charm. Read on as our Savvy Sommelier Velma LeBlanc captures more about the dynamic Sue-Ann & her deeply rooted ties to Niagara’s vineyards.
You are the first to know….The Fancy Farm Girl herself is coming to Ottawa. We are delighted to host a portfolio tasting on Wednesday April 22nd at the Orange Art Gallery,where Sue-Ann will be showcasing all of her wines – and perhaps some barrel samples too.

Fancy Farm Girl
March 6, 2015 · by Caroline ·
At a recent wine event I heard about this Ontario wine for the first time and was instantly drawn to the name, Fancy Farm Girl. One day soon after, I found a little burlap wrapped package at my door and was so delighted how it brightened up my day. The message that I found inside won me over, and so did the wine.
After a few years as a blogger, having tasted many gems around the Niagara region, I now know why they have grabbed the world’s attention. See the frivolous white and the flamboyant red below. If you are still one of those few who stay away because of some old fashion attitude – get over it!
