Three Dog Winery. Dog House White Light on the nose with fresh peach notes. It’s a refreshingly crisp blend of Vidal and Reisling. Light yellow in colour with a medium finish. Pairs well with sharp cheese and seafood.

Unusual Wine Experience

Attending the Burgundy Wine School in Beaune, France for a 3 hour lesson. It was very immersive and difficult to only "taste" the myriad of amazing wines instead of "drink" all of them.
