Hi Natalie,

I'm celebrating International Pinot Noir Day today ... it's my favourite wine. They call it the heartbreak grape because it's so difficult to grow and make. But when it's made well, it's sublime ;)

Lots of wines to break your heart, but not your budget, among my latest picks:

BC Stores (stock), Alberta, LCBO (stock), SAQ (stock), NB, NS, Canada.

Happy Saturday Sipping!


P.S. Are you interested in learning more about pairing food and wine?

You'll get those tips in my free online wine video class here ;)
