Our flagship red wine, Equuleus is a classically styled blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. But we don’t make it every year. To be considered an “Equuleus year” each of the three grape varieties must have achieved at least 23.5º Brix at harvest. 2010 was considered one of Niagara’s greatest vintages and our Equuleus is a testament to that belief. Aged for one year in French Tronçais and Allier oak barrels, this wine is rich and complex with flavours of cassis and dark chocolate. Equuleus is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for at least another 5-10 years. This wine is luscious and full-bodied. Prime rib roast, Yorkshire pudding and root vegetables immediately come to mind but I’ve been known to enjoy Equuleus with just about anything… roasted rack of lamb, BBQ steak, double cut veal chop, etc. This wine deserves a partner with as much oomph and class as it has.

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.
