Spooky Wine

Somebody is making wine in Collingwood. True story. Not only that – the LCBO is carrying it.

The winery is the Halloween-esque aptly named Coffin Ridge Winery and the wine I tried? Back From The Dead Red.  Good name. Good marketing.  Good wine for a Halloween party!

Grown in Grey County! It’s still hard to believe that’s not a joke (maybe  because I grew up in Mt Forest – the Wellington County side of the tracks). The grapes are 100% Marechal Foch (pronounced “mar-esh-shall-fosh” – thanks Wikipedia) and the wine is very good. It’s very rustic and dry – both qualities that I love.

Boo!
