Alton Farms Estate Winery, Lambton County’s only Grape Winery, has just released it’s latest Foch/Frontenac Rosé wine. This is a great summer sipping wine and has the following tasting notes:
This crisp fruity rose wine is soft on the palate with medium acids. It has a lovely butterscotch and cotton candy nose, with cranberry and tart red fruits on the palate. This is a picnic basket wine, and will be a great accompaniment to a ploughman’s lunch, salmon, brie cheese, Turkey dinner or just on its own.
Farmer’s Market’s are underway – see us at Point Edward, Petrolia, and Grand Bend.
You can now find our wines in 16 area restaurants, 11 in Sarnia and Point Edward, 1 in Grand Bend, and 4 in Bayfield. See our Restaurant tab for the full listing, and ask for a glass of our wine on your next visit.
We are selling 12 wine varieties at the moment including Sauvigon Blanc, Riesling, Aberarder Red (our Bordeaux blend), Cabernet/Regent and others.
