  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: Oxley Estate Winery

    Located in Harrow in Ontario’s Lake Erie North Shore region, Oxley Estate Winery’s a relative new kid on the block. In April 2010, they purchased what was then a vegetable farm, and began converting the crops to vines.

    But in the short time that proprietors Murray Wilson and Ann Neydon Wilson and their team have been up and running, they’ve managed to convert their property into a quaint, picturesque spot to visit, and have made a pretty big splash considering the modest 38 acres with which they work.

  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: C.C. Jentsch Cellars

    “Never heard of ‘em.”

    It’s a familiar refrain to the mention of various new wineries that have popped up across the Canadian landscape over the last few years. Sure, it can be tough to keep up with every single winery that has set up shop; here in British Columbia we’re up and over 250 of them. It’s amazing though, the difference that a handful of big awards can make.

  • Wine 101 — Wine, Weather and Song

    Like many, my taste preferences when it comes to wine change with the weather. On hotter days I prefer white, pink or sparkling wine, while on cooler days I reach for the red. This past weekend I got a good lesson — a Wine 101 of my own, if you will — on how most people’s tastes Continue reading
