Cabernet Franc Challenge - Day 4 - Ontario Wine Review

Date: Nov 27/07, Tue     Time: 07:00:00-10:00:00     Style: Sit-Down

Cabernet Franc Challenge – It was time to be Franc … or at least pick the best.

Participants convened at the Fine Wine Reserve over the course of 5 nights to taste over 40 different wines from 34 Ontario wineries.

The wines were broken down into 3 categories:

Cabernet Franc
Franc Blends
Franc Reserves

Each night, 7 to 10 different wines were tasted blind. Then, each taster decided on a scale from 1 to 10:

1) do you like it
2) would you buy it
3) is it good value

Not a reviewer’s challenge, but a people's challenge – judged by ordinary wine lovers - a great concept.

The event was hosted by the Grape Guy himself, Michael Pinkus from the OntarioWineReview. We all enjoyed his interesting and informative talk about Cabernet Franc, it's history and future in Ontario

Each evening started with a wine and cheese reception and ended with an After Party where we mixed and mingled for coffee and dessert - featuring some special bottles of wine from area fruit wineries, Balderson cheese, some sweet treats and coffees from Raymond Emes & Co. A fine time was had by all.

Nice job Mike!
