How to Pair Wine with Easter Eggs

Easter is upon us again. It is a time of year that is associated with rebirth and the coming of spring, not to mention one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar. Like any holiday, families that celebrate will gather to partake in traditions, and some of these traditions will doubtless centre around special foods to be enjoyed. An Easter favourite in many parts of the world is hardboiled eggs. Have you ever wondered how to pair wine with a food as innocuous as an egg?

White Wines for Red Wine Drinkers

It is common for wine lovers to change the style of wine they drink with the change in seasons. At this time of year when spring is changing into summer, consumers will often lose interest in red wines and switch to drinking white wines.

To Oak or Not to Oak? How oak barrels influence wine

Any visit to Niagara’s wine country isn’t complete without a tour of a working barrel cellar. The barrel cellar is one of the most famed aspects of winemaking. Perhaps more than any other part of the winemaking process, it is the time that wine spends in barrels that creates the most interest and intrigue. Thirsty wine enthusiasts love to explore these cool and dimly lit rooms, which are often underground to take advantage of natural temperature control. Row after row of beautiful, handcrafted barrels can be the perfect place to pose for photos or even to pop the question!
wine cork vs screw caps

On Corks and Screw Caps

As someone who has studied wine as a career, I freely confess that there is confusion and misinformation out there regarding the differences between a bottle of wine that is closed with a cork versus a screw cap. I have read texts and spoken to winemakers and tasting room hosts who offer outright conflicting information.

Red Wines for White Wine Drinkers

I freely confess that I am a white wine drinker. Given the choice between a white wine and a red wine, I am going to pick the white every time. I enjoy whites because I like to feel refreshed when I drink. I enjoy the generally lighter body, refreshing acid, and clean texture of white wines.
rose wine for lovers to share valentine's day

Rosés for the Lovers

We often talk about white wine and red wine, but what about rosé?  I often refer to rosé as “the forgotten wine style,” but it is not to be overlooked.  Rosés suffer from a bad reputation for being overly sweet, and an outdated and incorrect perception that they are only for women—not true!  Many of today’s rosé wines are being made in a dry style that appeals to all sexes.

Heart Throb Reds

Have you ever noticed that Valentine’s Day falls during a cold and dark time of year?  I like to think that Cupid planned it that way on purpose.  Maybe he knew that just what we need to get through the middle of the winter is a reminder that life is better when we share close and romantic moments with the person we love.  The middle of winter is also the perfect time to enjoy red wine from Niagara!  Usually heavier than whites, often drier, and served at a warmer temperature, this Valentine’s Day rekindle your amourous feelings for your special someone by sharing one of these delicious red wines from Niagara’s wineries together.

Cooking with Icewine

Icewine is renowned for its sweetness. It is a dessert style of wine that is very high in natural sugar and made from grapes that have frozen on the vine in winter, a process that naturally concentrates sugars and flavours. As Niagara is the Icewine-producing capital of the world, our local market has plenty of access to this liquid gold, and it can be a very popular Christmas gift in Ontario.
