  3. Wine 101 — Wine, Weather and Song

    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

  9. My Wine Canada In Review

    My Wine Canada In Review

    We’re in what I call the window of reflection, or perhaps it’s better called the eye of the holiday storm. The hubbub of Christmas has passed and New Year’s will be upon us tomorrow. We’re inundated with 2014 lists of everything from the Top 100 Songs to the Most Emotional Pro-Athlete Interviews to the Best Memes of the Year. Whether we want to look back over the year or not, mainstream media takes us there. This year, I’m happy to reflect on the events of 2014. For me, the Word of the Year is gratitude.

    After months of working on a plan to create an online marketplace for Canadian wine, we launched MyWineCanada.com this past June and achieved our goal of connecting Canadian wine consumers directly with wineries to increase sales opportunities and access to excellent domestic wine. My first thank you goes to our winery partners and customers, both of whom have consistently shown their support for us. From the early days of testing the platform onwards, these two groups have been wonderfully patient and flexible, dedicated and loyal. It’s our winery partners and customers that provide the inspiration that galvanizes us every day at My Wine Canada so, to you, my heartfelt thanks.

    Also on board since the early days is Kurtis Kolt. Wine writer, consultant, expert – few days go by without me being incredibly grateful for that Bob Dylan concert that serendipitously tied us together as friends ten years ago. As the curator of our Wine Blog, he has assembled a fantastic team of wine writers with Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson from the Winnipeg Free Press and Jake Skakun at the core and
