WindsorEats is bringing back a wine festival to the region. The Urban Wine Fest will be reintroducing a wine focused festival to the Windsor-Essex region in the core of the city.
The Urban Wine Festival takes place June 28-29 2019 at Lanspeary Park under the covered rink pavilion. The event will be showcasing local wineries alongside international wines, live music, great food and an interactive art component.
This festival is adding a twist to the event by showcasing wines by varietals rather than wineries.
WindsorEats has partnered with Wineology to tap into their extensive knowledge of wine. Owner, Jean-Claude Boutros, has curated a selection from five different varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Rosé & Sparkling Wines, Sauvignon Blanc. In addition, local sommeliere, Shelly Bynum, will be showcasing a variety of Malbec wines and local wineries will be showcasing the region’s strength in Cabernet Franc and Riesling.
Due to the warmer climate in Windsor-Essex, the terroir in Windsor-Essex is widely regarded as the best place to produce some the best Cab Franc in Canada. When yields and attention to detail in the winery are adhered to, Cabernet Franc could lead the charge in setting this region apart from others.
