TOM

IMG_20150701_153434July 1st, 2015:

Today we release a special edition red wine created in honour of Tom Preston. Tom’s career as a vineyardist at Grand Pré started with Roger Dial in the late 70’s and continued until his retirement in 2012.

Tom passed away in 2014, but he continues to be an inspiration to those who tend to the vines today. Because of Tom’s hard-work and devotion to the vineyard the idea to release a wine to honour his memory came without hesitation.

This unique, limited release blend of Marquette, Cabernet Foch and Baco Noir has a deep ruby colour and is delicate and complex with inviting flavours of plum, cherry and black fruit. It has a great balance with soft tannins and a rounded mouth feel.

Cheers, to Tom!
