Hi Natalie,

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, we chat about why cider makes such a great pairing with Irish stew, shepherd's pie and pub fare on CTV's The Social yesterday (video below).

As they say, an apple a day will keep anyone away if you throw it hard enough ... so why not try cider?

Much friendlier ;)

Besides, if the doctor is cute, skip the fruit, go straight to cider.

Feeling lucky? Try these wines:

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

You can change which updates you receive from me, but why would you? ;)



P.S. Try seeing red, not green, in my free online video wine class.

You don't need to be lucky choosing wine if you know how to taste it.

P.P.S. In the latest episode of the Unreserved Wine Talk podcast, we chat with sommelier Lesley Brown who shares her pro tips and travel experiences.

On CTV's The Social yesterday, we chatted about all things cider, from serving it (glassware and temperature) to pairing it with food; from cocktails to fascinating historical trivia.
