Dear Natalie, November 25, 2010

Welcome to a lighter, snappier Nat Decants! My team and I have designed the newsletter to deliver wine insights that stand out from the usual tips, but in one digestible gulp. If you're thirsting for more, click on the More links to the full stories and reviews on the site.  

The newsletter is also now far easier to forward to friends (click on the link above or just use your e-mail button) and to share on social media, such as Twitter and Facebook (click the rectangular buttons below). I hope you'll try these and let me know how it goes. If you blog, feel free to post the tips. I'm also keen to hear your thoughts on the new approach!

Wines of the Week
The LCBO Vintages release Saturday features some buttery chardonnays from Niagara and California (perfect for roast chicken), robust Australian shiraz (bring me a steak!) and some dark, brooding Italians (wine, that is, though I'll take both). There are plenty of other regions and styles in this release, plus some bargains worth stocking up on for holiday entertaining. More »

Wine Pairing of the Week
Vicki Bensinger, who teaches in-home culinary clases, has provided a wonderful recipe for butternut squash and goat cheese ravioli. I can't think of a better comfort dish. For comforting wines, try some of those buttery chardonnays I mentioned above or a zippy riesling to cut through the richness. Pinot noir and gamay will also work. More »

Wine Tip of the Week
Our Thanksgiving has past, but I've included tips on pairing wine with the big bird as a nod to our American friends, and because we'll be tackling that meal again in December. Turkey is a dry meat (at least, it is the way we cook it) so you need juicy wines to moisten it. In fact, many cooking mistakes can be covered up beautifully with the right wine. More »
