  • Top Wine Picks! Easy-Going Ontario Summer Sippers

    My wine-drinking preferences change with the seasons. In winter, for example, I like bigger, brooding reds and richer, complex whites; they almost seem to warm the soul in the frozen Manitoba climate.

    But in our gorgeous, sun-drenched summers I’m all about crisp, refreshing wines, no matter the colour. I don’t like excessive oak or tannin in my summer sippers — I want fresh fruit and a splash of acidity. Continue reading

  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: Ridge Road Estate Winery

    As the story seems to go with most great wineries, it all starts with the fruit. In this case, the fruit was an orchard. In 1994, Sean and Jayne Douglas decided to buy a fruit farm from Jayne’s grandmother that had been in the family for over 100 years. Continue reading
