This is my go-to-always-on-hand-summer-patio-wine (that's a mouthful!) It's listed as a "Varietal: Pinot Gris, Riesling, & Auxerrois" - all I know, is that it tastes lovely! I've served it along side roast chickens with fresh herbed salads, cheese plates and as a "midweek kitchen cooking glass" while I prepare dinner and packed lunches for the next day. Most recently, I've paired it with a 12-hour apple-wood smoked pork shoulder. So I guess that means it's pretty versatile! There's hints of lemon, fruits from sun drenched tropical islands and green apple, which would make perfect sense given the apple-rich region it's from. There's also a nice mineral quality to it. At the last dinner party we had, everyone agreed that there's no long-lingering aftertastes, it's "fruity" not "floral", it's a "bright" and "clean" wine and perhaps, most importantly it's one we would definitely pack in a picnic basket. Go now, go quickly and find this wine! You can also order directly from the Winery if it's not carried in your local LCBO ... which we do ... frequently. Happy sipping!

First Wine

Growing up in a French Canadian household, it was perfectly acceptable to pour "the children" a splash of whatever wine was being served (dilted with a hefty spash of water). Quite honestly, I have no idea what my first wine was.

Unusual Wine Experience

Wine pairing with the epic-ly-wonderful tasting menu at John Besh's Restaurant August - it was the first time I truly realized how much the taste of wine is influenced by food, and how much the taste of food is influenced by the wine that is served.
