You answered this question on your own podcast, and I love it: If you could open your own winery, which wines would you make (and why, other than you love them)?

What would you call the winery?

Lori Sweet33:01 I always thought ice wine was for dessert until Natalie MacLean showed us about pairing with cheese..




Now let’s turn to another Canadian wine region: Nova Scotia. You hosted several podcasts on this region with terrific insights.

L’Acadie Blanc is NS’s flagship white wine, but it was developed in Ontario. Why didn’t it work in Ontario, but thrived in NS?

Lori Sweet19:06 just added Spain and Albarino to my list.

Paul E Hollander55:47 This has been a truly wonderful evening. Thank you both!




If NS is cooler, then why wouldn’t it work say north of Picton or in Ottawa?

Why did Mike Mainguy bury three barrels of wine at Luckett winery? How deep was the hole? What was he risking? What happened? Why? How long does he age wines down there now?
