Page Cuvée 2010

One of the marquee events on the Ontario wine scene is the annual Cuvée celebration held every February.  Although fruit from Lowrey Vineyards has graced award-winners in years past, Cuvée 2010 marks the first time our own wines will be showcased and we’re very excited to attend.  You will hear words like “Oscar’s”, “Pomp”, and “Circumstance” used to describe the event, but simply put, it’s a weekend-long showcase of our best stuff.  It’s billed as more celebration than competition, but I assure you that all participating winemakers will secretly have their fingers crossed in hopes of a podium appearance on Gala Night.  Trust me though, based on some of the stupendous wines I tasted at the judging event last month, I won’t be penning any anticipatory acceptance speeches anytime soon!

Due to the 50-case minimum production requirement, we were only able to enter our 2008 Pinot Gris and 2008 Sauvignon Blanc into the competition.  Those visiting our winery over the February 19-21 weekend will get to sample those two wines along with our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (45 cases produced).   Our barn will be open to the public all three days of Cuvée from 11-5.  Tastings, as always, are complimentary.  Tickets to the Gala event and Cuvée en Route passes can be purchased here, with proceeds going to the Niagara Community Foundation.  I encourage all those with a keen interest in tasting some of Ontario’s best wines to attend and join in the fun.
