I recently tasted the 2014 Huff Rosé wine, made exclusively from Prince Edward County Cabernet Franc grapes. A shade of washed dusty rose is tempting, while aromas of ripe strawberries, red current and tomato jam beckon. This wine is a bouquet of red fruit, wrapped around County minerality, for your enjoyment.
Terracello Winery … 2014 Pinot Nero (Noir) is a delight. It hits all the correct notes on the nose, with hints of smoked bacon and Spice Island mace, wrapped around red berry. There is soft red raspberry and cherry on the palate — and a sharp cleansing finish.
Karlo Estates … Gilmore wines now available for purchase at their winery located on Danforth Road. The rosé, made from Pinot, really caught my attention as a wine to be appreciated for its correctness and charm … The Gilmore red is a careful blend that reaches all the right notes, and the white — that will appeal to all — is collaboration between Doug Gilmore and the late, and greatly missed, County visionary Richard Karlo.
Direct from a sold-out engagement in the Arctic, Thomas Kovacs returns to East & Main! Make a date on August 12 to see what it’s all about. You can hum along, shake the tambourine, and (yes) even sing as Thomas weaves his magic on Wellington. You really don’t think that dinner and a song works for you? Then you’re going to […]
if you invest in wine futures, purchase as much of the 2015 Long Dog Pinot Noir as is possible — even before tasting a drop. This wine transcends the boundaries of the County to a realm unique unto itself. It takes on Burgundian profiles and West Coast exuberance — tempered by exposure to new, inert French oak barrels. It is akin to a kiss to be received and remembered.
Domaine Darius … Kimberly and I matched his 2013 Cuvée with roast lamb and a couscous salad and were blown away with memories of Languedoc. This wine is a blend of County Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Marquette that truly expresses an Old World style wine — earthy and packed with dark fruit.
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.
