Dear Dionysus, August 31, 2012

Tomorrow's wine picks feature Niagara chardonnays and pinot noirs as well as bold Italian reds.

I'm so looking forward to hosting two wine-soaked evenings with Wolf Blass in Toronto Sept 10 and Ottawa Sept 17. Lots of wine and laughter.

Tickets went on sale yesterday and are more than half sold out for both events. They may sell out this weekend. (Thank-you!)

Yes, Wolf is the "character" in the first chapter of Unquenchable. However, unlike Duncan Hines and Johnny Walker, he's very real and provocatively witty. I hope to see you there.

In our latest Google + video chat Karen King of Niagara's The Ice House shakes it up with icewine cocktails and pairings for chocolate.

Karen also shares what it was like to be on the CBC TV shows The Big Decision and Designer Guys with Steven & Chris. I'll be posting a new video later today about restaurant wine lists.

Have a terrific long weekend,
