DAY #3 - Today's post is all about the life of the party, our incredible alcohol sponsor!!! We were lucky enough to get a tour of the winery today in Port Dover and have an exciting behind the scenes tour to show you BUT we're not gonna give it all away at once! Keep checking in as we get closer to the event for more goods, a lucky reader may even get some Frisky Swag out of it before the party.

Because of the incredible generosity of Smokin' Beaver Winery , we will be serving 3 different wines throughout the evening Frisky Red , Frisky White and Blushing Beaver.

Join us and give all three a try!  If you love it as much as we do (which we guarantee you will) you can pick some up and enjoy it at home. 

Order online or from your local LCBO.

It started as a dream...

Then some wine drinking, serious thoughts, more wine, and some outlandish plans and the result was Frisky Beaver.

100% Canadian - made from 100% Canadian grapes. Where else would you expect your Beaver to be from? We pledge to provide magnificent wines that you would be proud to share and enjoy with friends.

Frisky Beaver is an award winning wine being named a Top 20 Under $20 Wine twice! On top of that, it has been featured on CTV News!
