Silver Medal winner at the National Wine Awards

18.0% alc./vol. 500 mL

Fortified Red Wine

Best enjoyed now – or next 10 to 15 years.

The first fortified wine to be made in the County, VanAlstine has aromas of spicy black raspberry and cassis dominating the nose with red liquorice and cedar. Round and full on the mouth with rich ripe fruit and a lingering finish.

This wine is made with our Frontenac Noir and Merlot.

Traditionally a gentleman’s drink, Port is classically paired with fresh figs, walnuts and a fine cigar. Our barn was built in 1805 so there are no fine cigars here today, but feel free to smoke them down at our dry stone bridge.

If you’d like to use the VanAlstine Red as a dessert wine, pair it with anything to do with dark chocolate. I’ve had it with things as simple as chunks of dark chocolate and nuts, or something as decadent as German Dark Chocolate Molten Lava Cake with Raspberries and Raspberry Sorbet.

Karlo Estates chose Prince Edward County as the home for our winery. The late Richard Karlo and wife Sherry Karlo built Karlo Estates from scratch on 93 acres of beautiful limestone soil in Hillier, on the outskirts of the town of Wellington.

Currently producing 4000 cases of wine sold directly from the winery and through select restaurants in Ontario, Karlo Estates is not available at the LCBO. We prefer a more personal approach.

Karlo Estates is the only winery to have wines named on the Top Ten Cutting Edge Wines in the World list twice. We’ve poured at the Gold Metal Plates Olympic fundraiser and sell our wines in Tokyo and Europe. Our wines have achieved much critical acclaim and our exclusive VanAlstine White Port was awarded a gold medal from the International InterVin Awards. Our winery is the only vegan certified winery in the world.

We are excited to announce our new winemaker is the legendary Derek Barnett.
