Have you ever wanted to pick grapes? One beautiful Saturday morning in October, Debbie rounded up a group of wine enthusiasts to help Sally & Rob Peck – owners of Sugarbush Vineyards – with the 2010 harvest of Chardonnay grapes. Sally & Rob have transformed their home & backyard in Prince Edward County into a small vineyard with a boutique winery that is a going concern. Their wines are impressive too.
Definitely a must visit on your next trip to ‘The County’.
We will be helping wineries with the 2012 harvest. If you would like more information about our ‘Helping the Harvest’ event, email us.
Cheers & Enjoy!
Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Unoaked this Chardonnay has fresh aromas & tastes of citrus (can you find orange or is it mandarin?), vanilla bean that turns into reminders of English toffee (think Macintosh Toffee). It an absolutely pleasant wine to sip & enjoy.
Suggested Food Pairing: This wine would pair nicely with butternut squash soup, cheese-laden pasta, roast turkey or chicken.
Sugarbush Vineyards is a small boutique winery that you won’t find their wines at the LCBO. Want to try some of their wines?
