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!

English Language Finalist Pairs beautifully with…June 25th, 2010 | Posted in Cabernet Franc
Ontario Wineries and Ontario Craft Brewers have custom-matched their great products with some of Ontario’s finest books, as represented by the 17 finalists for the 23rd Annual Trillium Book Award– Ontario’s prestigious award for literature. Each pairing was intended to match the characteristics of a particular beverage to a specific book.
Black Prince Winery has chosen Matthew Tierney, The Hayflick Limit (Coach House Books) the English finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry. The Hayflick Limit concerns itself with boundaries of the cosmic and sub-atomic- how the mind contains both- and the sadsack creatures in the nexus, human beings. What does it mean to be an intelligent species? What does it mean to be an intelligent person? Shifting focus
between the limits of the telescope and the limits of the microscope, the poems in Matthew Tierney’s second collection place a premium on inventiveness while embracing extremes of fear, pain, cognition and time.
