Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery Riesling VQA

It’s Thanksgiving weekend: a time for celebration, a time for giving thanks for our blessings and, of course, a time for sharing a meal with family and friends. Thanksgiving dinner ‒ whether it be turkey, ham, salads, or veggies ‒ pairs well with a nice, cool glass of Riesling. There’s no better way to complement our Canadian Thanksgiving than with this weekend’s selection from Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery in Ontario.  This Riesling is ideal to share with friends and family over this Thanksgiving weekend.


Tasting Notes:  Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery Riesling awakens your senses with aromas of ginger, fresh fruit and citrus. The mouthfeel is creamy yet crisp on the finish with a refreshing essence of green apple. This wine has excellent balance and has a pleasant lingering finish.

Enjoy With:  Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family!

Style:  Light and crisp white wine.

Terroir/Region:  Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery is located on the north shore of Lake Erie. The VQA Lake Erie area is known for its long growing season and abundance of sunshine. The soil composition was greatly affected by the glacial lakes adding unsorted stony materials to the area. The lake breeze moderates the growing season and helps produce strong harvests.

Producer:  Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery represents the fulfillment of a dream that Hannah and Gord Mitchell had when they purchased their 52-acre farm on Lake Erie 44 years ago. They planted their vineyard in 1991 and began producing excellent vintages soon thereafter. After the grand opening of their winery in 2007, Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery has produced many delightful VQA wines that display Ontario’s winemaking prowess.

Availability:  Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery Riesling is available year-round in the Ontario VQA section at the LCBO. To make things even better, the wine is on sale for $2.00 off until this Sunday, October 8, so it’s the perfect time to stock up for Thanksgiving dinner!
