Very few Ontario wineries grow Foch anymore. This French red hybrid produces wines that are too tart for most of today’s sweet palates, but I enjoy the rustic character of Foch. Even more so when it hails from the rustic shores of Georgian Bay. Toast the folks at Coffin Ridge for expanding our local wine trail, and for doing it with a sense of humour. Take a break from ‘nice’ wine and get-down with Foch. Maybe take a burger along for the ride.
