Bacchus tours the Millstone Winery

October 18, 2013

Millstone Winery in Nanaimo BC was a very fun visit. The label of the Cabernet Franc features ‘Black Frank’, founder of the legendary bathtub races and mayor of Nanaimo 1967-1984 & 1986-1990. A colourful character to say the least! The likeness is taken from his statue in the park, he cuts quite the figure indeed!
