Limited Release BACO NOIR, Available in our 5 week Cru International Line of Kits

Our Niagara Baco Noir style wine is abundant in red fruit, spice, and sweet smoke notes on the nose. The full-bodied palate and signature long smoky finish are true to character for this unique Niagara variety. It is important to know that this wine isn’t a universal palate-pleaser due to its rustic smokiness, and should be paired with specific foods to ensure maximum enjoyment.

Fermenting your wine on GenuWine Winery Dried Grape Skins will add deep hues, enhance the bouquet, and promote chewy tannins for a lingering finish.

Pairing RecommendationsBaco Noir is the perfect match for summer BBQs; the wine’s smokiness will enhance the flavours of smoked, charcoaled or grilled meals!

We also recommend pairing this wine with smoked cheese (e.g. gouda, cheddar, etc.), BBQ baby back ribs, charcoal grilled steak with roasted onions, or smoked babaganoush with grilled pita bread.
