  • Free Shipping from Sperling Vineyards

    Here in Vancouver, we’ve just gone through one of the rainiest, coldest and even snowiest winters on record. While I realize I’m not going to get much sympathy from those living in the rest of Canada, that certainly doesn’t diminish my eagerness for sunnier days and warmer temperatures. Consequently, I’m feeling a little more seasonal when it comes to what I’m drinking, and am fine to take a little sabbatical from rugged red wines that comforted throughout those abundant dark and rainy days. Is it possible that the Okanagan Valley’s Sperling Vineyards have read the minds of us who are so done with winter, by dangling the carrot of FREE SHIPPING when ordering six or more of their wines this week, so we can enjoy their lifted and bright wines that will suit our spring and summer well? With Mother's Day approaching, this is the perfect opportunity to give Mom her favourite wine and get free shipping!

  • Top Holiday Wine Gifts

    Hectic is the word on the street right now! You need to leave a Christmas party early because you have a second one to go to on the same night. At the office, the bottles start to pop up at noon while everyone is trying to empty their inbox before the holidays. And what about those gifts you haven’t bought yet? Yes, this frantic time of the year can cause a lot of stress. Do yourself a favour and save a trip to the liquor store. Waiting in the huge line-up will only take time away from something else you could be doing. At My Wine Canada, you can buy online and the bottles will be directly delivered to your door. With picks from East to West, I have the perfect selection to get through the holidays. My gift to you. Merry Merry! Continue reading

  • Seasonal Wine Gifts That Sparkle

    As holiday gift-giving reaches fever pitch over the next couple weeks, why guess at your friends or family’s sizes to ensure that new sweater will fit, or wonder if they really need a new cutting board? Not only is a great bottle of wine always appreciated this time of year (or really, any time of year), but sometimes a fun bonus with gifting a stellar bottle is that your recipient just may be inclined to share it with you down the road! And, of course, who doesn’t love bubbles? Here are three top Canadian sparkling wines perfect for gift-giving (but you can always feel free to treat yourself to ‘em, as well)! And if you act fast, you can get Lang Vineyards' Sparkling Rosé with free shipping.

  • Holiday Wine Cocktails

    Those holiday bells are just beginning to ring, and among an upswing in merriment and cheer, we’re finding ourselves increasingly likely to imbibe all things delicious. Yes, this often includes enjoyable pours from our favourite Canadian wineries, but when cocktails are in order, that doesn’t mean we necessarily have to cast aside our grape-oriented brethren.

    Wine can be a key component of many an excellent cocktail, so if you’re looking to do a little stirring or shaking this holiday season, here are a few favourites. Continue reading

  • Free Shipping From Benjamin Bridge, Acclaimed Sparkling Wine House

    This past week has been heavy in emotion. The roller coaster of the US election, then the death of music legend Leonard Cohen. Add to that the days that are now getting darker and shorter. Well, we've got something that will brighten your day - free shipping from Benjamin Bridge! There is just something about bubbles that always makes you feel better. 

    Lily Bollinger of Bollinger said it so well: “I drink Champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it -- unless I'm thirsty.” But it’s not Champagne that I recommend drinking to lift your spirit. I don’t know about you but I have never been more proud to be Canadian than during this past week. So I propose a toast to our wonderful country with the stunning bubbles from acclaimed sparkling wine producer Benjamin Bridge in Nova Scotia.

    Another reason to feel proud. Benjamin Bridge is offering you an unprecedented deal on their premium wines with free shipping this week on 6+ bottles. This is an excellent occasion to stock up for the holidays - take advantage now, because this deal won't be coming around again anytime soon.

  • Pair It Up With The Grange of Prince Edward

    The Grange of Prince Edward's wine portfolio is perfect for summer drinking. Whether white or red, the wines express the cool climate of Prince Edward County with high acidity and innate freshness. Even Cabernet Franc, a grape often vinified into a full-bodied, structured wine, is medium-bodied, vibrant, and extremely elegant in the hands of the Grange. In honour of the drinkability of these wines and the fact that they're featured this week for FREE SHIPPING, I've paired a few of them up with recent summer recipes from Western Living Magazine.

  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: Benjamin Bridge

    A few weeks ago one of the most highly regarded and well known sommeliers of the US was visiting Montréal. He had his priorities straight: poutine, bagels, smoked salmon and get his hands on a bottle of sparkling wine from Benjamin Bridge. He had read about this producer who supposedly makes stunning sparkling from Nova Scotia. How can this be possible? I could see the skepticism in his eyes. A part of me understood. Another snowstorm (in April!) had just hit the city and Nova Scotia was further east. Wouldn’t it take until the summer for the snow banks to melt? How can vines grow successfully? Continue reading
