Grapefruit, green apple, and pear aromatics dominate the nose. The medium body is clean and crisp with flavours of green apple and citrus which continue through the wonderful finish. Serve lightly chilled on its own or with seafood, chicken, pork, or vegetable dishes.
California Johannisberg Riesling is lighter and less exuberant, but still reflects the bright citrus and ripe fruit character that makes Riesling one of the more versatile white wines. Fruity notes with an off dry impression. Serve as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to most foods. Works especially well with Asian dishes, fish, pork, and chicken. Serve lightly chilled. Special Order 7-10 DAYS

Fresh, crisp, medium bodied wine with restrained aromas of gooseberry and lime followed by refreshing light flavours of fruit and a bracing core. An excellent wine for social sipping, with appetizers, chicken, and fish.

Well rounded mouth feel. Flavours of black fruit and a nice finish. This wine should match well with a wide variety of hearty foods Italian pasta with tomatoes, eggplant, chicken, or red meats.

This California Cab delivers a characteristically firm tannin wine with loads of black fruit character made more interesting by the vanilla notes from the oak. The aromatics suggest blackberry and black currant. Flavour is centered around red and black currants which remain evident through the nice finish. This is a wine to serve with beef and lamb.
The finished medium bodied wine is bright red with purple hues and is inflected with juicy red and black fruit notes, subtle spice (black pepper), and an inviting vanilla accent. The flavours are in fine balance with the natural fruit acids and soft tannins, making a very pleasant and quaffable red.
The wine releases aromas of raspberry and cherry, and a subtle toasted note followed by flavours of raspberry and strawberry. Gentle tannins and well integrated oak contribute structure to the fruit driven profile without being too aggressive.
A bright and fruity wine. Expect to enjoy lively black cherry and cranberry aromas and flavours against subtle spice and almond in the background. The soft, light to medium bodied wine may be lightly chilled and enjoyed as an aperitif, or serve with chicken, pork, or simple beef dishes.
A complex wine which reveals notes of red currant, black pepper, vanilla, and toast all wrapped together in a slightly earthy manner. Gentle tannins guide the wine through a nice finish. A great wine for hearty barbequed meats. Special Order 7-10 DAYS
Bright fruit and violet aromas define the nose. Blackberry, black cherry, fig, cocoa, and licorice flavours intermingle on the palate. The finish lingers with more fruit, herbs, and a suggestion of spice. Pairs well with chicken, pork, and roasted vegetable dishes. Stands up well to grilled or roasted beef. Special Order 7-10 DAYS
Plum and raspberry flavours and aroma introduce the wine with chocolate notes. The finish shows fruit and introduces mineral tones against bright acidity. A favourite for barbeque beef and spicy sauces.

HISTORIC LANDMARKS OF OTTAWA..by Donna DeFalco
Donna is the daughter of our founding father, Dominic DeFalco, who started DeFalco’s Wine Cellars Inc. back in 1962. She was a commercial artist in her early years and she produced a magnificent series of prints which display the feeling of historical beauty of her hometown, Ottawa, Ontario.
Donna’s artwork was just starting to get itself out there in the early 1980’s through local craft shows, business conferences, school billeting programs and a few gift shops around Ottawa when sadly, in 1984, Dominic passed away and she inherited the family business. With her time now being focused on this new adventure of running DeFalco’s, her artwork was put on hold. Now that Donna is semi-retired, her team at DeFalco’s has decided it’s time to re-release these fabulous prints and make them more accessible for everyone to appreciate and enjoy. Her artwork is available at all three of our locations as well as at our online store. GREAT GIFT IDEAS for office events, farwells, out of town guests, stocking stuffers, teachers, birthdays and anniversary gifts, company conventions.
