Isle Queen Blackberry is the wine of the season!
Isle Queen is an extraordinary member of our award winning Fortified Dessert wines. One of our more complex wines, she is a port-style dessert wine that will please the wine connoisseur and those who want to impress at the next dinner party. Isle Queen is perfect as a gift, or for a quiet romantic evening – she will awaken all your senses…
Serve Isle Queen on her own for an exceptional blackberry experience, or serve Isle Queen mixed together with our Ghost of the Bogs white cranberry wine in place of a blackberry table wine.

Pick Me strawberry wine is back! And it is better than ever!
For a limited time, we will have our dry strawberry (Bite Me) and our sweet strawberry (Pick Me) available for you. Once the dry strawberry is gone…it’s gone…so come see us to stock up before it disappears!
If you have been around the winery lately you will have seen a lot of work being done in the back, as we finish off our newest batches of Mighty Fraser and Saucy. Throughout this coming week both batches will be bottled and on shelves by early next week. The newest Valley Girl and Sweet Nothings are next on the agenda, and will soon be joining the new cranberry batches on the shelf.
Today we were fortunate to have guest that has moved to Canada from Rome, share with us a wonderful summertime pasta recipe that would pair up fantastically a cold glass (or bottle!) of our Ghost of the Bogs white cranberry wine.
Authentic PASTA PRIMAVERA
Ingredients: Fresh tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil and your favourite semolina pasta.
Boil and cook the pasta al dente.
While you are cooking the pasta, crush (in crusher, or a quick few zaps in the food processor should do) tomatoes, leaving the skin on. Blend in fresh minced garlic (to taste), and add freshly chopped basil (to taste). Spoon over pasta and serve.
Authentic Primavera sauce is to be served uncooked and room temperature, for those hot summer evenings… A taste of Italy with the perfect glass of cranberry wine. Quick and easy. ~Enjoy~
I’d like to say HI! to all our guests who attended the very first Candlelight & Wine evening at The Fort Wine Co.
The freshly picked and prepared foods were amazing and the wine was refreshing and delicious. I’d say it went well, but then I was the host, so does my opinion count?
A great big thank-you to Jenelle and Maureen for all the thought, planning and implementation in making the evening so special – and to our first guests for your enthusiasm and adventurous spirits.
We enjoyed having you and hope you’ll come back and see us often!
