Calamus Starstruck Sparkling, Georgia’s Wine Pick

We had the pleasure of being invited to the Grand Opening Weekend Party May 18th and 19th, 2019 on the stunning 3 tier deck at the newly renovated Calamus Estate Winery! What a great afternoon it was where we were treated like Queens! We also were joined by our winner of the Mother’s Day Instagram contest for a VIP experience at the winery!

The day included a selection of beautiful wines, lunch on the deck, a barrel room tasting and tour of the grounds by Peter himself.

Nothing tastes as good as a glass or two of sparkling wine on a bright sunny day overlooking vineyards. My favourite this afternoon was the Calamus Crackle. A bubbly blend of 75% Vidal and 25% Chardonnay made in the same method as Italian Prosecco. Floral and frothy with notions of fresh apple and pear, lemon, peach, banana and honey, this sparkler is a true treat. Available at the LCBO and the winery too.

This traditional method sparkling wine, is crisp with flavours of apple, lemon-lime and brioche.

This wine was delicious paired with the stone oven baked margarita pizza and beautiful chacuterie board.

Beautiful 2-level patio overlooking Balls Falls and the vineyards make for a special afternoon.

Overlooking the 42-acre property and Balls Falls is the place to gather your ultimate Niagara Winery experience. Bring your pet and ask for the winery staff for a walking tour guide over one of our 3 bridges over 18-mile creek throughout the vineyards.Whats truly unique is that this winery never charges a corkage fee for any of their bottled wines on the patio or special events.
