Papa’s Special Reserve

This wine is our Dad’s favourite as it is a unique special blend of red and purple raspberries made from the finest hand picked berries grown here on the farm. Named for our Dad this wine became famous when it earned a Gold Medal at the 2009 All Canadian Wine Championships. This wine has become a popular after dinner wine.
