Grilled Rack of Lamb with Chaberton Estate Winery Reserve Cabernet Franc 2018

I make a grilled rack of lamb once a year and usually enjoy a Pinot Noir or juicy Merlot with it.

Two Big Bold Red Wines for Your Winter Chill from Chaberton Estate Winery

Chaberton Estate Winery, one of our long-time established wineries, is located in the Fraser Valley.

With the hot summer weather, it was time for me to get out and enjoy it with a day trip to Chaberton Estate Winery in Langley where I met with GM Brian Ensor.  He gave me a guided tour, first bringing me out to the vineyards where the first vines I saw were their 40-year-old Bacchus grapes.  It is hard…
