Urban Winefest 2019


June 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm – June 29, 2019 @ 11:45 pm
WindsorEats will be hosting the city’s first wine festival in late June 2019. The Urban Wine Fest will be reintroducing a wine focused festival to the Windsor-Essex region in the core of the city.

“We wanted to focus in on something that this region excels at,” explains Adriano Ciotoli, co-owner of WindsorEats. “There are many wine regions in the province, but Windsor Essex is currently producing some of the best Cabernet Franc.”

The terroir in Windsor-Essex is widely regarded as the best place to grow and produce some the best Cab Franc in Canada and WindsorEats will be showcasing that strength with the inaugural Urban Wine Festival in June 2019.

Due to the warmer climate in Windsor-Essex, red wines are a stronger suit for the Essex Pelee Island Coast wine region. The Cabernet Franc, when yields and attention to detail in the winery are adhered to, could lead the charge in setting this region apart from others.

The 2019 Urban Wine Festival will compliment other festivals and events that WindsorEats has created and brought to the region such as the Windsor Craft Beer Festival and the Whiskytown Festival.

While the festival will highlight Cabernet Franc from various wineries, visitors can still expect to see a lineup of other varietals.

“We anticipate the festival being vibrant and fun, shattering any perceptions of wine and wine drinkers.”

WindsorEats has narrowed the focus of the festival site location to a few locations within the city, including Lanspeary Park.

Tickets are now available online at WindsorEats for $20. If available, tickets will be $40 at the gate.
