Prince Edward County, Ontario
The nose showcases sour red cherry with hints of raspberry, cherry, rhubarb and cranberry. The palate is full of ripe red berry fruit with a hint of spice and a perfect balance of acidity and tannins. Norm makes incredible pizza in a wood-fired oven on site, using vegetables grown alongside his grape vines!
Port Dover, Ontario
The soft tannins and supple weight of this wine lends itself to be very versatile when matching with food. Steak, cambozola and fresh marinara topped pizza paired with multiple glasses of Smoke & Gamble Reserve Cabernet Merlot is a great way to start off any weekend!
Okanagan, British Columbia
Beautiful ripe red berries, vanilla, kirsch, raspberry syrup, blueberry pie, grandma's baking spices, and vanilla! Drinking incredibly now and will only improve with age as the fruit evolves into something even more complex. Enjoy with your favourite tomato-based pizza or be fancy and try a pear and gorgonzola pizza.
