They bottle this wine in a clear Bordeaux shaped bottle so you can see how clean and vibrant the wine is. You can also see from the colour that it’s unoaked. This is the way they like Sauvignon Blanc; fragrant with classic hints of gooseberry and citrus fruit with an herbal note on the finish. They chose to use a screwcap on this wine to signal that they believe this wine is best enjoyed young.
The impressive entrance to Château des Charmes Winery (pictured below) with the formal gardens and the classic façade are reminiscent of an ancient French estate. Hardly surprising, as Château des Charmes has a long history of winemaking, dating back seven generations to Alsace.
Founded by industry visionary Paul Bosc, this family estate winery is set among 35-hectares of pristine vines in the St. David’s Bench. By the early 1970s, Paul was crafting Ontario wines that surprised many in the wine world. In 1978, he established Château des Charmes as a 60-acre estate winery and planted the first commercial Canadian vineyard growing only vitis vinifera grapes….this is truly Canadian wine history in the making.
