September News

September is a month booming with excitement at Ferrante Winery & Ristorante! From Harvest Season, the Grand River Valley Cask Tasting to Lobster & Leaves,to the Grape Jambouree there is excitement both at the winery and around the winery!  Be sure to take a look and read about this month's fascinating festivities! :)

Grand River Valley


Sample the finest red wines the valley has to offer.

Saturday September 15th 2012


$6 per person at each winery. 

Includes wine sample & a fine appetizer.

Ferrante's will be serving a Baby Beef Wellingtons with a wild mushroom duxelle.

The cask project began as an idea in 2010 to have a continual red blend from the Grand River Valley.  Each year a percentage of the wine will be bottled & sold to make room for the next years harvest.  The date on the bottle represents the year it began "10" and the year it was bottled "12".  Each winery used a different 10,000 gallon oak barrel with vinifera grapes from their farm.  
Join us for our inaugural event as we pop the cork on our first vintage

Cask 1012


Vineyard Update

As we close out August, we are busy finishing up on the vast bottlings before harvest. With the warm and dry summer, harvest is about 10 days early. 

We will be receiving Niagara and Cayuga from our growers around this Labor day weekend.  We expect to pick our first variety; Pinot Gris around September 10th.  This vintage should result in the BEST we have experienced in a few years.  With smaller crop loads and maturity reaching high levels, this years wine will be very high quality.
