Gifts for Mother’s Day: Wine Trumps Flowers (and Tastes Better)

My wine column in the May issue of More Magazine Canada, with more than 500,000 thirsty readers, features three wines to celebrate Mother’s Day as gifts: three spectacular bubblies. A toast to Mom!

The cover features an actress whom I admire for her depth, strength and guts, Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife, Canterbury’s Law, ER).

I also love that she’s often drinking a glass of wine as she reviews her legal briefs in the evening at home. (Guess that doesn’t play so well in the ER.) At the start of the season, it was white wine, but I notice that it’s always red wine as she’s matured in her taste and life experience.

I also get to live vicariously through her as a lawyer since I was originally enrolled in the combined MBA and LLB program at the University of Western Ontario, but in the end decided to cash out in two years with just the MBA, rather than stick it for four years ;)

You’ll find more Mother’s Day gift wines from my column on Epicurious and on Canada AM.

Here are my Top 20 Wines for Mother’s Day, either made by women or named for them. Often the latter were originally made by women.
