Old Vines Foch Reserve

The Old Vines Foch Reserve has developed an almost cult like status over the past decade. This big bold red is made with fruit that our father Richard Stewart Jr. planted at Quails’ Gate more than 50 years ago. These old vines produce intense fruit with amazing complexity and intensity.

Tasting & Pairing

Deep ruby in colour, the wine opens with intense aromas of dark fruit, coffee, cigar box and hints of toasted coconut and roasted meat. On the palate, the wine is smooth, rich and full bodied with subtle tannins and juicy acidity. Notes of vanilla, cherries and tobacco lead to a long, bright finish. Try pairing with bold, hearty dishes including roasted game meats such as bison short ribs or wine braised lamb shanks.


This classic Maréchal Foch is made from vines planted more than 50 years ago at Quails’ Gate estate vineyard. Hand harvested in October at our estate vineyard. 30 days on skins maximizes colour, with fermentation in 100% new American oak barrels for added complexity. Aged 20 months in barrel before blending and bottling. This wine will improve and reward with careful cellaring through 2026.
