A Crush on a PrinceNovember 11th, 2010 | Posted in Cabernet Franc, event
Last fall, 5 adventurous souls from Engine Communications in Belleville, challenged themselves to eat locally for five days. Highlights from their adventure were filmed by TVCOGECO and will air November 11th at 8pm, viewing areas are listed here .
This adventurous group discovered some interesting things along the way and one of those was regarding beverages, although coffee is not grown within 100 miles, grapes sure are and there is an abundance of local wine readily available for consumption.
During the fifth day of their challenge the group made their way over to Black Prince Winery for a tasting, it was the harvest season and we thought it would be fun to challenge them to a little crush off. Lined up in the plant they were given 2 minutes to crush as much juice out of a bucket of grapes as they could using only their hands. A good time was had by all and the winner of the challenge was Shaun. Congratulations, Shaun and thanks to all for being wonderful sports!
