  • Pair It Up! Food & Wine Resolutions

    If you’re one of those people who starts a detox and renews their gym membership on January 1st, by now you might be thinking: enough already!

And there are few Ontario wineries who have impressed as consistently as Flat Rock Cellars, the hosts of this week's free shipping deal. Continue reading
