We're Joe & Del, "The Wine Couple", and we moved to the county for one reason: the wine! We found many other things here since we've moved (like the food, arts and the friendliness of the people) but we remain committed to our love of the wine!

We hope to have every winery on this site and have the most extensive list of every wine in the county! Search for your favorite wine or winery using the search bar at the top left of this page and feel free to leave comments on the site. Your fellow wine lovers will appreciate the feedback ... ENJOY!

By Chadsey's Cairns - Riesling

2007 Riesling: $19.00 Lively citrus notes, mineral undertones and a crisp grapefruit finish.  Wonderful on its own at the cocktail hour. Refreshing and elegant at the dinner table, particularly with salmon.


(pronounced REES-ling) A great classic wine that tastes nothing like the sweet versions many of us cut our teeth on during our early wine drinking days.  A dry Johannisberg Riesling is thirst-quenching and energizing.  One of the few white wines that evolve with age, Riesling is also known for its ability to express the terroir of its surroundings.  Grown on Brighton Gravelly Sand, our Riesling tends to taste of zippy citrus and a distinctive minerality with a floral or green apple bouquet.  The grapes need a long, slow ripening period to maximize flavour—perfect for Ontario vineyards.  [3.7 acres; planted 1999]
