ED'S TAKE - Good Grapes Grow in Ontario!Back to Archive
A MESSAGE FROM ED
And so a new year begins . . .
...and I love it. Revitalized, excited and energized is the way I would describe everyone here at Flat Rock Cellars. The harvest is over and we have caught up on our sleep – revitalized; the release of some library wines that our customers have been asking for became available – excited; and the launch of a series of fun videos, ED'S TAKE, to express my point of view on wine, our region and our winery – energized. 2013 has Flat Rock Cellars all a-twitter.
Go on and check out TAKE ONE - Good Grapes Grow in Ontario! in our series of videos. We will be sharing the rest of them with you over the next several months. They are meant to be educational and fun. I look forward to hearing what you think.
Also, a limited amount of Seriously Twisted that typically sells out as soon as it hits the shelf has been pulled from our library and made available until it's all gone. It has always been one of my favourites.
We have many great things planned for the coming year. As usual, innovation, fun and great wine will be the hallmark of what you can expect from everyone here at Flat Rock Cellars.

A WORD FROM OUR WINEMAKER
By Jay Johnson,
January is a very exciting time of year as we put the pieces of the puzzle together. We are blending all of the 2012 aromatic wines in the cellar over the next few weeks. Aromatic varietals such as Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Unoaked Chardonnay are finding their way into our proprietary blends for bottling in early Spring.
Wines such as our Estate Riesling, Nadja’s Vineyard Riesling, Estate Gewurztraminer, Unplugged Chardonnay and our most popular wine, Twisted, are tasting beautifully. We have amazing components from the vineyard that show off the nature of the 2012 growing season. Can you guess what the Twisted blend will be? We look forward to tasting it with you and sharing our blending secrets.

We've been asked a lot about this wine. It is out of production right now so we have unearthed some from our cellar from the good years of '07 & '08.
