30 Days of Local Wine

A rich, approachable dry red with plenty of flavour to boot, the Amarouge from Aleksander Estate Winery is a mixture of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

This red wine is named after winemaker Aleksander Bemben’s grandson, Aleksander Mario, and was an instant hit ever since its release at the Shores of Erie Wine Festival 2009. Great on its own or a refreshing complement to meats, cheeses, and rustic foods.

The Amarouge is available in both 1L and 750mL bottles.
