A big shout-out to the wine producers of Prince Edward County, who won seven medals at this year’s Ontario Wine Awards. Frédéric Picard, of Huff Estates should be very happy with his two Gold’s: one for the fabulous 2010 Cuvée Peter sparkling wine and the other for the 2013 Pinot Noir.
Please note: Thomas’ first date has been changed to May 7. Fortunately Thomas was gracious enough to come on Thursday instead. Thanks for your understanding. East & Main is singing again, now that Thomas is back in town! Last summer his passion for entertainment led us to hum along, shake the tambourine, and (yes) even sing. He’s agreed to come back this summer […]
Half Moon Bay Winery … 2012 Merlot … Nose to tail, this wine is exceptional: with a titillating nose of raspberry and cocoa bean, and a palate that is a steam of red fruit, a hint of chocolate, and a whiff of nutmeg. The finish lingers long — a great expression of Merlot and our 2012 vintage.

Huff Estates … 2012 South Bay Merlot is absolutely delicious, extremely well crafted, and aged in a combination of new and old oak barrels. The grapes were harvested from vines that were then 13 years old, that vigorously display their maturity. This superb creation by the Huff Team and winemaker Frederick Picard has exceptional nose, stunning mouthfeel, and a long finish that beggars the mind.
I am really excited by the upcoming new releases from all the County wineries, especially the upcoming red wine releases from 2012. It was one of those Goldilocks years when the planets were aligned, the amount of rain was adequate, the heat units were excellent and the grapes, at harvest, begged to be picked. After that, it was up to the winemakers to weave their magic to produce astounding wine.
Welcome to East & Main
Your hosts, Kimberly and David, want the memory of the best in local fare to bring you back to Prince Edward County. Their idea: provide luxury comfort food, but use fresh local ingredients with perfect service that never intrudes upon the camaraderie of good friends. Wellington offered the natural intersection for wine, produce and country casual.
