LaStella Maestoso 2009 and La Sophia 2009 Release!


If you’ve looked out the window you’ve no doubt noticed that fall is upon us. With the cold and wet weather here it is the perfect time to release our big red wines!

We are fortunate this year to have two big reds to release: the 2009 Maestoso Merlot, and the special edition 2009 La Sophia Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our regular drinkers are no doubt familiar with Maestoso; it is the most grandiose wine we make and a perennial favourite. Production of Maestoso in recent vintages is much reduced; only 148 cases were made in 2009, less than half what was produced in 2008. La Sophia Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps a little less known; we only make this wine in special vintages and have only released it once previously. The critical review on the 2009 La Sophia is incredible; one critic commented that it might be “one of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignons ever made in Canada.”

We guarantee that both are the perfect drink to help you weather the winter months.

Finally, don’t forget that the holidays are right around the corner. The 2009 Maestoso and 2009 La Sophia make perfect gifts for the wine lover on your list. On top of this, LaStella offers some terrific gift boxes for the holiday season. You can see the available gift boxes here on our website.
