2016 D’Ont Poke The Bear Red VQA

We love great wine, even more so when our purchase can help a great cause.  As National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month comes to an end, it’s important to continue our support to stop bullying in our schools.  D’Ont Poke the Bear is a wine that celebrates those who fight back against bullies.  $0.25 from every bottle sold will be donated to the Friends First foundation which brings awareness to anti-bullying efforts.  D’Ont Poke the Bear is a cheeky and defiant VQA wine from the Niagara Peninsula that was brought to life through the passion of two Ontario winemakers.


Tasting Notes:  This wine is a blend of Cabernet and Ontario's newest favourite, Baco Noir. It’s a beauty of a red blend which is smooth, ripe and loaded with berry fruit.  Drink responsibly and D'Ont Poke the Bear! 

Enjoy With:  Burgers, steak and many other grilled foods.

Style:  Full-bodied, smooth red wine.

Terroir/Region:  D’Ont Poke the bear comes from the VQA Niagara Peninsula. The terroir is known for its rich, fertile soils and cool climate that helps produce grapes with complex, intense flavours. The alternating layers of silt, sands and clay in the soil allow for many different varietals to flourish, especially Cabernet!

Producer:  Generations Wine Company is a partnership between Canadian winemaking legend Dr. Allan Jackson and Sommelier Andrew von Teichman. It operates as a virtual winery and focuses on offering outstanding quality wines aimed at disrupting the local wine scene. Its mission is to produce outstanding wines and raise awareness for anti-bullying.
