This Gold Medal winning VOC bottle is 100% Frankovka (Blaufränkish). It was matured for 20 months in small and large oak barrels, balancing the wine with a round finish. The taste of dried cherries is evident and shows the true characteristic of Frankovka from the Blue Mountains where the grapes are grown.

About Us

We’re John and Brenda Steinsky from PEI. John is a proud first-generation Czech Canadian. Since May 2018, he has served as an Honorary Consul for the Czech Republic in PEI and New Brunswick, also covering Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in an “acting” capacity. In addition to providing consular services to Czech nationals in these provinces, John was keen to promote “economic diplomacy” with Atlantic Canadians, by sharing Czech goods and services they otherwise might not have access to.

Beer and wine seemed like good fits given the proliferation of craft brewing in the Maritimes and local interest in "new old-world wines." Czech wine is often described as "the best wines you’ve never heard of." We’re hoping to change that!
