Wrap your tongue around this grape variety

While visitors whose last name is Featherstone frequently visit Featherstone Estate Winery with curiousity that the winery might be owned by a long lost relative.  When owners David Johnson and Louise Engel explain the origins of their winery name, the visitors are eager to try their wines.  You see, long before the term ‘foodie’ was mainstream, David & Louise had a inherent passion for wine. They owned a specialty poultry business in Guelph (the feathers connection!).   They decided to move to Niagara and purchased a 23-acre property that is the site of their home and transformed into the winery and vineyard.  This property has a rock quarry behind it (hence the stones).  The name was born of their experience and their dreams for the future – Featherstone.
Savvy Sommelier Debbie, states that David & Louise have one of the most picturesque home offices in Niagara – a beautiful farm home with a wrap around porch surrounded by slopes of vineyards.  Heavenly!  And so are their wines.

Featherstone Gewurztraminer VQA 2011

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes:David nicknames this ‘G Wine’ as more often than not visitors can’t wrap their tongue around the word Gewurtraminer – it is a mouthful!  It is a refreshing white wine with aromas & tastes of stone fruit (think pear, peach, apricot) along with some pineapple too with great acidity that makes this a easy drinking wine.
Suggested Food Pairing: Nice on its own or with spicy Mexican, Indian curry or Thai food.
Cheers & Enjoy!
