Hi Natalie,

Miles and I were *debating* Christmas light colours this week ... I love blue and white, he thinks multi-colour is more festive.

We came to a detente with the Christmas tree in blue and white, and outdoor multi.

We do that with wine, too ;)

'Tis the season to bring together many tastes and palates. Why not have several bottles open for friends and family to choose, just as they do side dishes for the turkey (or Christmas lights to keep the peace)?

Here are terrific wines for your holiday table:

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

You can change which updates you receive from me.



P.S. You can find the new audiobook of Red, White and Drunk All Over on Amazon, iTunes and Audible.

The hardcover was named one of the Best Books of the Year by Amazon and the Globe & Mail. (Santa can deliver this as a gift ... you take a little load off his sleigh and reduce your environmental hoof print ;)

Video: You'll Want to Try These News Wines

Christine Sismondo, a professor of literature at York University, writes about wine and spirits for the Globe & Mail, Canada’s largest national newspaper:

  • 'Tis the season for sparkling wine, and we're familiar with Prosecco, but you explored two lesser-known bubblies. What are they?
  • What is pisco? Why is pisco sour one of the best cocktails of all time?
  • Why is sherry making a comeback? What is raw sherry?

Find out these answers in this dynamic Live Video Chat here, where you can also read viewer comments. You don't need to be on Facebook for this.
