  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: JoieFarm

    For over ten years now, British Columbia’s JoieFarm winery has been producing wines that can be considered ‘the Okanagan in a glass.’ Though that sounds cliché, from where I’m swirling my glass – I consider it to be true. First, the wines always carry the region’s hallmark acidity, keeping things well-balanced and refreshing. Second, they’re quite expressive of the Okanagan’s mineral-rich soils, the remnants of glacial movement thousands of years ago. Finally, those long, sunny days are reflected in the ripeness and purity of fruit no matter the label. Vintage 2015 was a good one here in B.C., long and sunny, allowing for fruit to properly ripen without the threat of winter frost coming early. There were fires in the area at times during the summer, but vineyards and grapes were fortunately unscathed. Continue reading

  • Pair It Up! Holiday Smorgasbord

    We all get inundated with pairings for classic dishes like ham and turkey every time a holiday rolls around and it starts to feel a little stale. That's why I liked Kurtis' post last week—he takes on the common party fare. I've been tasked with the final Pair It Up before the holidays and I also wanted to have a little fun with it. I've decided to lay out a smorgasbord of the kinds of dishes you're likely to encounter on dinner tables over the next few weeks and find a wine or two that should pair nicely. Continue reading

  • Pair It Up! The Awesomeness of ‘I Am A Food Blog’

    I was actually doing some online banking recently when I started to think about what to make for dinner. I popped over to Stephanie Le’s i am a food blog and, yet again, got wonderfully lost poking around her stories, recipes and (incredible, incredible) photos for over a half hour. As a warning, if you haven’t been to her website, the same thing will most likely happen to you. Continue reading
