  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: Little Farm Winery

    For many, this week is truly the beginning of the year: it’s back to school. And for parents, this is usually a stressful time. Life becomes hectic again with a schedule that is filled with a long list of tasks. To alleviate some of the stress, below are three recipes from food guru Jamie Oliver that take just 15 minutes to prepare paired with three lip smacking wines from one of my favourite BC wineries - the Similkameen Valley's Little Farm Winery. A delicious meal and a glass of wine to match will immediately make you feel better and put a smile on your face. I call it gourmand therapy. In addition to being incredibly exclusive (small quantities made and not widely sold), Little Farm Winery also happens to be offering free shipping on 6 or more bottles of wine when you order right here!

  • Top Wine Picks! For BBQ Season

    Regardless of which part of Canada you live in, the thought that summer is just around the corner is exhilarating. Smelling the first neighbour's BBQ of the season always brings comfort, we associate these aromas with longer days and dinner on the patio. Impromptu social gatherings are likely to increase over the next few months, so here are some great wine picks to stock up on in preparation for sunny times ahead. Enjoy! Continue reading

  • Pair It Up! Seasonal Feasting

    It happens to the best of us. When it comes to the holiday season, regardless of noble intentions - we end up avoiding our regular gym or yoga sessions, we promise ourselves we’ll resume the running regimen in the New Year, and any sense of monitoring our calories and nutrition go out the window. Yup, ‘tis the season of joyful feasting, and rather than castigating ourselves for slacking on our regular routine, I prefer to ensure we have perfect pairings to match our indulgences. Continue reading

  • Top Wine Picks! Value for the Holidays

    There are occasions over the holidays when opening a special bottle is apt. I like to pop a nice bottle of Champagne on Christmas morning, or maybe a pricey bottle of Burgundy at an intimate dinner with friends. That being said, the vast majority of the socializing I take part in over the holidays is in a very loud room with twenty-five members of my extended family, or in a crowded bar with a dozen co-workers. There are times when a special wine can be appreciated and given the respect and attention it deserves, and other times when you look over to see that your aunt has emptied almost half a bottle into her wine glass so it's brimming at the rim. Here are a few delicious wines offered on My Wine Canada that are perfect for sharing, but also won't set you back more than $20. Continue reading

  • Pair It Up! Wine and Caesar Salad

    Whether you’re at a greasy spoon or a white-tablecloth eatery on this continent, you’re almost certain to find Caesar salad on the menu. Continue reading

  • Pair It Up! Chicken Soup for the Cold

    Let’s face it, plenty of us are likely to get a cold or two this winter and a little chicken soup will be in order. In fact, I was thinking that the healing power of chicken soup was more of a placebo effect, but according to the New York Times, it can indeed reduce congestion, help you stay hydrated and have other positive benefits. Of course, for many of us, we’re not going to let a little cold get in the way of enjoying a glass or two of wine, right? Continue reading
