CREW 2008 Cabernet Franc with Maple Spice Salmon.


Heard it through the grapevine!

George Clooney at Colchester Ridge Estate Winery? Who knew? Amazing fun facts you can find out when talking about Essex County Wineries! This winery welcomed a visit from the actor himself after dining at a local restaurant serving Crew wine. Which one did he buy? Time for a road trip to find out!

We enjoyed Crew Cabernet Franc 2008 (available in LCBO in January) with cedar planked Canadian Atlantic sugar and spice salmon as an aperitif . An excellent match! A fruit and nut salad from Chatelaine magazine accompanied Crew Riesling 2010.

Both premium quality award wining wines!

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
