Taste Vintage 2020 ~ Virtual Tank & Barrel Sample ZOOMINAR

January 28, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Sneak Peak of Vintage 2020

One of the good things that happened in 2020 was a phenomenal season for grape growing in Niagara. All the stars aligned. We began with a late onset of spring, followed by a hot, dry summer stretching into a gorgeous autumn with perfect conditions for picking.
There’s growing expectation and excitement around the vintage just passed and we are pleased and excited to share a sneak peak of our 2020s with you.

We’ll be pulling fresh wine samples, still resting in our cellars, to give you a  snapshot of the 2020 vintage. You can purchase the TANK & BARREL SAMPLE KIT and follow along with our hosts. Depending on the grape variety, our samples will come from either stainless steel tanks or oak barrels and we’ll discuss the effect of each on their respective wines. These tasters will be raw but ready for enjoyment and a bit tantalizing in that they won’t be bottled for several months.

Your knowledgeable and charming hosts will be:
Ed Madronich, Owner & Chief Wine Taster
Dave Sheppard, Winemaker
Allison Findlay, Assistant Winemaker
Jacob Glantz, Business Development Manager
The TANK & BARREL SAMPLE KIT includes six 4oz. samples* of each of the following wines:
*enough for 2 people to enjoy
2020 Pinot Noir (barrel 1)
2020 Pinot Noir (barrel 2)

2020 Pink Twisted
2020 Unplugged Chardonnay
2020 Riesling
2020 Twisted
Plus, a bottle of our signature white wine, 2017 Twisted.
You may register for the Zoominar without purchase of the TANK & BARREL SAMPLE KIT, though the samples are recommended for maximum enjoyment. Of course you can just crack open your favourite FRC bottle and come along for the ride. Enjoy!
