Southbrook Vineyards owners Bill and Marilyn Redelmeier launched their boutique winery in 1991 in Richmond Hill, Ontario, as a development of a three-generation farm. This support for local agriculture inspires the new Seriously Cool wines, which are sourced from Niagara vineyards that meet the Sustainable Winemaking Ontario standards. While their own vineyards in Niagara-on-the Lake were Canada’s first to be certified both Organic and Biodynamic, Southbrook is also a leader in creating opportunities for other farmers to keep our rural landscapes productive, protect wildlife habitats and create local employment.
SERIOUSLY COOL RED VQA
This unique red blend from Canada’s leading sustainable wine producer is comprised of 65% Pinot Noir, 25% Gamay along with a splash of Syrah and Zweigelt is juicy, well-balanced and perfect for casual fare. Owners Bill and Marilyn Redelmeier’s deep and abiding respect for sustainable agriculture guide their industry-leading philosophies around responsible stewardship of their land. This important estate is a benchmark example of the viticultural achievement possible in Canada’s leading wine producing region.
Savoury and loaded with generous fruit, this mouthwatering red is a perfect pair for cured meat platters, steak frites, duck confit, pizza or pasta with red sauce – or as a perfect red wine patio sipper all summer long!
“New from Southbrook is this lively red that offers aromas of mulled cherry, candied strawberry and light spice. The palate is medium-bodied and dry with medium acidity and tannins; look for flavours of black cherry, raspberry, and candied apple followed by a lightly spiced, medium length, finish.”
