Niagara College Teaching Winery Cabernet Franc 2008

Member Review by NiagaraWiner:

Dark ruby red colour. A simple Cab. Franc with some berry fruit on nose and a light-medium bodied mouthful. Light acidity and some tannin. Was hoping for more spice, but still quite drinkable.

Welcome to Niagara College Teaching Winery, the centre for wine education in the Niagara Peninsula and the only fully licensed teaching winery in Canada. Niagara College Teaching Winery is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, part of the Niagara Peninsula wine region, which spans a 30 mile plain on the N43º latitude where the growing season sunshine is comparable to the Languedoc-Rousillon in France, south of both Burgundy and Bordeaux, or Tuscany, Italy. In 2000, the Niagara on the Lake campus of Niagara College established the Winery and Viticulture Technician program. The program is the first of it's kind in Canada in that the Teaching Winery facilitates the learning enterprise of the program. The Niagara College Teaching Winery is the centre for wine education in the Niagara Peninsula and is the only fully licensed teaching winery in Canada. With the focus on quality education, we believe in preparing students for work in the "real" world. Our graduates then enter an exciting career with a wine industry employer in winery operations, viticulture, sales/marketing and wine business management. The wine industry has worked with Niagara College to develop and fine-tune the following programs so that graduates are highly skilled and ready for their new careers. These intense and unique academic curriculums utilize our science lab, college vineyards, on-site equipment, and work with wine industry educators and professional winemakers. Niagara College produces award winning VQA wines which are crafted by our professional winemaker Terence Van Rooyen with student involvement. These wines can be purchased at various fine dining establishments in Ontario or they can be purchased through the Campus Wine Store, at various LCBO/Vintages or through our home delivery service Winery To Home.
