Alton Farms Estate Winery, Lambton County’s only Grape Winery, is hosting an Artist in the Vineyard Event and is also releasing it’s latest Foch/Frontenac Rosé wine, the blend that our customers helped us make with their voting during last years Fall event. This Foch/Frontenac Rosé wine is a great summer sipping wine and has the following tasting notes: – crisp fruity rose wine is soft on the palate with medium acids; 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.
This year the event is starting small and will have, for display and sale, the artwork of:
Merle Henshaw of Kilworth
Ulila Robson of Strathroy
Harriet Turner of Strathroy
There may be a few more “surprise” Artists – but this is still being worked on.
Alton Farms Estate Winery has been selling wine for over three years from the store at the Estate Winery at 5547 Aberarder Line in Plympton Wyoming. With the introduction of a VQA line of wines late in 2015, Alton Farms is pushing to increase sales by selling at local farmer’s markets and restaurants. So far three farmer’s markets, Grand Bend, Petrolia and Point Edward, are hosting the winery. 15 restaurants in the local area have started featuring the wines and are featured on the Winery website.
