4 Local Wines To Try This Fall

There are over 10 different wineries in and around the Capital Region, and we’ve highlighted 4 of our favourite local wines for autumn.


1. 2014 Das Riesling, Smokie Ridge Vinyard. A white wine with more in the way of body and alcohol than its traditionally sweet cousins. The primary fruit aromas in Riesling are nectarine, apricot, honey-crisp apple and pear. This 2014 gem hits the mark with ripe apple aromas. On the palate you find light acid notes and a medium to long finish.



2. 2021 Frontenac Gris Pinot Grigio, Stonecrop Acres Winery. This wine offers a nose and palate of bartlett pear, crisp apple with a hint of honeydew melon and citrus, with just a hint of fresh ginger on the finish.



3. 2020 Kin Pinot Noir, Kin Vinyards. Pale Garnet in colour, this wine has a nose of red cherry, cranberry dried autumn leaves, and subtle leather notes. The palate is fruity, earthy and fresh with a medium finish.



4. 2017 Frontenac Noir, Stonehouse Vinyard. A medium+ bodied wine with aromas of black fruit, dark chocolate, mint, sweet spice and smoke. The tannins are medium and the acidity is medium+. When tasting, the wine presents flavours of sour cherry, dark fruit, spice and ends with a long sour cherry, blackberry finish.
