Spring into Action... Flat Rock Cellars Style

Back to Archive

A Word from Ed

As the months of summer draw near, we are getting more and more eager for the exciting things that are to come! Amongst the most exciting things that we have coming up is our Release Party, which is an excellent excuse to enjoy the good life. We will be having a BBQ at the winery, letting some secrets out of the cellar and enjoying new vintages of classic Flat Rock favourites! An invitation will grace your inbox shortly, so stay tuned! And make a "save the date" note on your calendar for Saturday June 4, 6:30-9:30pm.

Keeping in line with all things summer, I can't let the team take over until I announce the return of el Gastronomo Vagabundo! We are picking up where we left off last summer with incredible foods that pair perfectly with our wines. Needless to say, this is the most unique and exciting winery dining experience in Niagara, you haven't done wine country until you've checked this out!

Finally, we are participating in Somewhereness which is an event to celebrate wines with a sense of place. An event that we are proud to have participated in since its incarnation. It is always a great experience to share our wines alongside other great Niagara wineries. And this opportunity finds us twice, as the Taste Camp crew hits the winery as one stop on their busy itinerary! In a few short days they will learn about Niagara wines on both sides of the border, we are thrilled to share with them our slice of the region and the beautiful wines that this land lets us produce!
