The prospect of a family-owned winery was often discussed at family gatherings, yet the idea became fruition one day while Sue-Ann was thinning the vineyard with her father Howard.
‘What are you doing?” he asked.
“I’m thinking that there’s no reason I couldn’t start my own winery,” replied Sue-Ann.
Soon after, in 2009 Sue-Ann Staff Winery opened & her wines have been turning heads ever since! Sue-Ann is a well-known winemaker in Canada & is particularly proud of her Semi-Dry Riesling as it is her first as a winery owner!
Cheers & Enjoy!
Sue-Ann Staff Semi-Dry Riesling 2008 VQA
Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: This is a classic Riesling. Light to medium bodied with refreshing & crisp aromas of petrol, citrus, tropical fruit (mango perhaps?), crunchy green apple, pears with a persistent long finish. Our Savvy Sommelier Susan Desjardins who reviews wines for the LCBO, gave this wine 4 of 5 stars!
Suggested Food Pairings: Perfect chilled on its own. Or serve with spicy Thai or Indian dishes would make this wine sing!
