I had a chance to visit one of my favourite wineries in Southern Ontario this week. The Smith & Wilson Winery, not far from the town of Blenheim, is located on the shore of Lake Erie.
They take advantage of the excellent climate and soil , producing some excellent wines!
I always look forward to bringing home a couple of bottles from their award winning vintage table. I purchased a 2008 Buckhorn Baco Noir – $ 13 – Silver Medal winner ( this one I admit didn’t make it to the suitcase ! ) / still to be enjoyed are a 2009 Pinot Noir – $ 18 , & a 2007 Double Barrel – $ 15 – which is a Cab Franc / Merlot blend and a Silver and Double Bronze medal winner. The prices are amazing, considering the quality of these wines!
