On a recent trip to Prince Edward
County, Shawn and I were
able to visit the new home of Three Dog Winery. As you might remember, I
blogged a while back about Three Dog’s innovative Indie GoGo campaign to raise the funds needed to complete the winery. Well, that initiative was a huge
success and Three Dog is now a reality.
|The new winery building|
The new winery building was filled with friends and family
who were there to wish John and Sacha Squair all the best with their new
business – though if the first bottling is any indication, they have more than luck
on their side, there’s real winemaking talent there too. We were able to sample
that first wine – Dog House White – a very refreshing and drinkable white wine
blend – and both Shawn and I enjoyed it enough to take home a few bottles.
|These vines were planted with love - and will be lush next spring!|
PEC is home to a number of new wineries these days, but I
think many of us hold a special place for Three Dog in our hearts because John
and Sacha have been such incredible advocates for the area for so many years.
It’s also hard not to have a soft spot for a winery you had a tiny part in
