Recipes & food pairings



Dear [Contact.First Name], February 14, 2014

Pairing wine with aphrodisiac foods sparked a passionate debate on CTV's Canada AM this morning. (It's never too early to think about this ;)

There's a wine for all the libido-lifting dishes we discussed, from oysters and chocolate; to asparagus and bacon. Yes, bacon.

You'll find these wines in my latest wine picks plus ...

            20 full-bodied, voluptuous red wines under $20

In stock now in the LCBO and SAQ

Speaking of that, tomorrow's LCBO Vintages Release is all about great wines for Valentine's Day, including many from Ontario and France.

This shopping list shows the stock for each wine at your closest stores.

In our continuing wine series with Canadian Press that's syndicated to daily newspapers and their sites, we also chatted about pairing wine and chocolate.

Later today, we'll be chatting about wines for seduction on CBC's drive home shows across the country.

Enjoy your Valentine's Day!


P.S. A gift subscription to my wine reviews is a loving companion gesture to a great bottle for your sweetheart.
