Cabernet Franc is one of Niagara’s signature grape varieties and this is an excellent example of how it can be made into a complex wine with aging potential. The grapes are hand picked and then undergo temperature-controlled fermentation so the wine does not come across as “over extracted”. It's then aged for one year in 1-2 year old French oak barrels to add an extra layer of flavour but not mask the essence of the wine. It’s ruby coloured, with flavours of raspberry and pipe tobacco. Although this wine is ready to drink, it will continue to develop in the bottle for at least 5-10 years. Try Cab Franc the next time you're thinking about Cab Sauvignon. You will be pleasantly surprised! This wine is full-bodied enough to pair with any red meat; BBQ, braised or roasted.

Growing wine has been in our family’s blood for seven generations. In fact we have been farming our land in Niagara-on-the-Lake for more than 30 years. We love everything about it; from nurturing the vineyards each year, to bringing the wines to life in the cellar and waiting for each to come of age so it can be enjoyed. This is also where we live, raise families and play. It's not just where we work, it's home.

From the beginning we have been committed to using sustainable practices both on the farm and in the winery. Paul Bosc Sr. and his team use modern science and a lot of TLC to coax the best out of every vine. And with more than 30 vintages in our vineyards we think we know which varieties grow best in which spot. But there is always more to learn.

In our home wine is an important part of most family dinners. It is treated like another food group. There is an interesting phenomenon that happens when wine is enjoyed with a meal ”” life slows down. We discuss each other's days. We enjoy the time together. Dinner becomes more than just food, it becomes a meal.

We hope that each and every bottle of our wine gives you a taste of who we are and why we love sharing a little of our way of life with you. Because making wine is not what we do, it's who we are.
