At 14 years old, Huff Estates is one of the oldest wineries in the thriving Prince Edward County wine region. French winemaker Frédéric Picard has his roots in Burgundy, and much experience at wineries around the world, and is crafting world class wines at Huff Estates.


This is the first single varietal Cabernet Franc to be produced from Huff’s South Bay Vineyard and it is an excellent first attempt. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, it’s well balanced, flavourful, and very smooth on the palate. It’s drinking very nicely now, but could also be cellared for 3-4 more years.
