Hopetown Craft Red Scores 93 Points!

Our 2019 Hopetown Craft Red VQA recently received a score of 93 from the Toronto Star. Wine writer, Carolyn Evans Hammond calls the wine “shockingly good value” and a “brilliant buy.” Your mouth will water at the description of “heady aromas of cherries swirled in melted chocolate. Then, it sweeps in with a silky, fruit-laden entry that’s dry, well-balanced and medium-bodied.

Available at our wine boutiques, online, and at the LCBO for only $13.95.

LILY SPARKLING – 92 Points from The Toronto Star

LILY SPARKLING – 92 Points from The Toronto Star

“Colio also makes a delicious sparkling wine at a great price. NV Lily Sparkling, VQA Ontario, is pure Riesling and erupts on the palate with a taut attack that tastes polished and pure, while whispering aromas and flavours suggest fresh apricot and white peach as well as lime, orange zest and chalk — all understated and delicate. And a kiss of sweetness lends balance to the tart seam of acidity. Lovely. Score: 92” ~ Carolyn Evans Hammond
