The Grower’s Blend series was created to showcase the exceptional fruit coming from various vineyards throughout the Niagara Peninsula. The 2017 Grower’s Blend Cabernet Franc is a perfect example of this. The nose is rich with strawberry, red cherry and tobacco. With its balanced tannins and lively acidity, this wine that will pair beautifully with with lamb chops, pasta with Bolognese or Veal parmigiana.

"The vintage was unusual but a coup for those who understood what to do with cabernet franc turned on its head. The verdancy and pyrazine bent would have stayed in charge straight through August and then warmed, golden toasted and charmed through September. Tawse has captured the timeline and the phenolic development with precision for a lighter, less wood-effected and righteously balanced wine. Everything you would expect from the varietal expression is present and accounted for. Drink 2021-2025. Tasted October 2020."

Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic winery. A life-long lover of wine, Burgundy in particular, founder Moray Tawse purchased the Cherry Avenue property in 2001 after realizing the great potential of the Niagara Escarpment as a word-class cool-climate wine region. In 2005, he opened his state-of-the-art winery in Vineland, complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system and a wetland bio-filter.
The inspiration for Moray’s eponymous Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Tawse and the award-winning winemaking team of Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede, is dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
At Tawse, winemaking begins in the vineyards. We proudly apply rigorous organic methods to every aspect of our production from grape-growing to winemaking and Ecocert seals appear on all wines made from our estate fruit.
Today, having acquired over 200 acres (5 vineyards) and being named Canadian Winery of the year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2016, Tawse Winery now produces 30,000 cases of wine and has one of the largest portfolios of organic wines in the Niagara region.
