Dear Bacchus, September 28, 2012

You'll find lots of terrific wines for your Thanksgiving dinner in my latest column for Active Adult Magazine as well as in the latest  wine picks.

For several months now, I've been tasting through hundreds of wines from our east and west coast regions to select my Top 25 B.C. Wines and Top 25 N.S. Wines. These bottles richly deserve a place on your dinner table.

Meanwhile, several Australian winemakers are touring Canada this month. You can watch Google + Video interviews and tastings with Wolf Blass, Grant Burge, John Duval and Bruce Tyrrell as you sip on a good glass of shiraz or semillon.

I'm a full-fledged numbers geek when it comes to measuring online activity and trends. The latest studies reveal that surprisingly the majority of social media users are women and that they also buy most wine. Overall, wine consumers are heavy users of social media ... so easy to share your latest bottle.

Have a great weekend,

PS Join us for an all-Canadian wine & cheese tasting October 10 at 8 pm on Google + Video. Taste along with us, share some laughs and get some great tips on these pairings.
