  • Top Wine Picks! Toasting Prince, The Purple One

    Dearly beloved… we are gathered here to get through this thing called wine.

    Sacrilege, I know, to tweak Prince lyrics like that. But I only do it out of complete reverence for the late musical icon/genius, who died last week at age 57.

    And while Prince didn’t drink, many of us have certainly raised a glass in his memory over the past week, or simply enjoyed sipping on something while one of his records plays in the background.

    Here are a few wines that make me think of the Purple One… Continue reading

  • Wine 101: On B.C. Pinot Noir

  • Top Wine Picks! Small Lot Wines

    'Small lot' (or sometimes 'small batch') isn't a wine term with a concrete definition. It's often relative to the winery, or it's a number that elicits a response like, "You only made how many bottles?!" Many of the wines available on My Wine Canada could be argued as being small lot— you won't find production Continue reading

    In case you missed it, MWC writer Michelle Bouffard and I have been in Niagara judging at the 2015 National Wine Awards of Canada. We’ve been tasting in the ballpark of 80-90 wines per day. For a bit more on how wine competitions like this one work, here’s a blog post I did on Monday. To see more of what we’ve been up to here in Niagara, check out the #NWAC15 hashtag on Twitter or Instagram.

  • The Friday Files: News & Notes From Canada’s Wine Scene

    Oh, man! I’m in Kelowna right now presenting B.C. Wine Seminars for restaurant and retail trade on behalf of the B.C. Wine Institute, and have just saddled up on a stool at Pilgrim & Pearl. I gotta say, I’m flipping through a wine list that is not only one of the best in the Okanagan, but I’d venture to say it’s one of the most ambitious and fun in not only Western Canada, but potentially the whole country.

  • Pair It Up! Rice Cakes and Riesling

    In the latest issue of Lucky Peach, David Chang divulges the recipe for one of the most famous dishes from the Momofuku empire: Momofuku Ssam Bar’s Spicy Pork Sausage & Rice Cakes. It's a classic dish in Korean cuisine, but David Chang has brought it to an audience that probably wouldn't have tried it before. Continue reading
