Recipes & food pairings



Dear Bacchus, October 25, 2013

There are great wines in tomorrow's wine picks, to pair with hearty fall dishes and comfort foods. (Yes, all wine is comforting ;)

You can get the text shopping list that shows the stock for each wine in your closest liquor stores. You can also take a sneak peak at my top picks for the November 9 Release.

We've had a series of terrific winemaker team tastings recently, with great producers such as Kim Crawford, Errazuriz and Ruffino.

You'll find the reviews, food pairings, videos and pictures for each one posted at the link above. Stay tuned for more!

Join me on CTV's The Social today at 1 pm when we chat about how wine is priced, and how to find bargains in the liquor store.
