Hinterbrook 2010 Cabernet Franc

By / Wine + Drinks / October 12th, 2013 / 2

Michael’s back with another review of a wine that you might want to consider adding to your cellar. Hinterbrook Winery is located in Niagara and sits on historic property – the land was first settled in 1789 by United Empire Loyalists. In 1963, the Nickel family purchased it and began growing an array of fruit and vegetables – grapes, peaches, plums, pears, cherries and peas. Always looking to the future, the Nickels began planting Vinifera grapes, and by 2009 the family had decided to establish a winery.


Michael is an award-winning journalist: Promoting the Promoters Award Cuvée 2010 and Ontario Wine Awards Journalist of the Year 2012.  He is also a national and international wine judge - Ontario Wine Awards, All Canadian Wine Championships; Best of Riesling — Germany; Essencia do Vinho — "Top Wines of Portugal".  He is currently the President of the Wine Writers Circle of Canada and the wine columnist for Ottawa Life and Grand magazine as well as regular contributor to Tidings, and Grapevine ... his reviews have also appeared in the LCBO Vintages magazine. Michael has also added a YouTube channel to his activities where he reviews bottles of great Ontario wine on a weekly basis. In whatever he does, it is Michael’s desire to educate, inspire and encourage others to grow their own love and enthusiasm for wine – and to realize that it is their palate that ultimately makes the decision.
