This signature line of 6 distinct wines within 1 region are limited edition collectors items that will augment the experience of visitors to both our wine region and our 1812 region.”

From July 19 to September 1, 2013 a special barrel of one STOWAWAY 1812 varietal will be stowed away aboard Liana’s Ransom one of the Tall Ships participating in the August 30-September 2 Coastal Trails: Sails to See Tall Ships Festival in Windsor, Amherstburg, Kingsville and Pelee Island. This special barrel will travel the great lakes throughout the TALL SHIPS® 1812 Tour presented by Redpath Sugar, produced in partnership with the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes 2013 and end its journey on September 1 in Pelee Island. The special properties of the stowaway wine and the effects of the Great Lakes on its composition will be highlighted by renowned Wine Writer Tony Aspler, founder of the Ontario Wine Awards.

Each winery will produce a different wine varietal, with each winery highlighting an 1812-era Tall Ship. Each wine is one of a collection of six and can be purchased starting July 4, 2013 at participating wineries.

The six participating wineries will launch and provide tastings of the STOWAWAY 1812 wine line.
