  • Top Wine Picks! Trail Estate Winery

    Prince Edward County is getting attention and wowing the press, and for good reason. The region is full of dynamic producers crafting wines with a standard that represents Canada well. Trail Estate Winery is among them.

    A newcomer to the scene, the winery is already boosting an impressive line-up of small batch craft wines. The owners, Anton and Hildegard Sproll, bought the estate in 2011 after dedicating their life to their German bakery for 30 years. Hard work is certainly not foreign to them, so perhaps this is why they are achieving such success in a short amount time, as their first vintage was in 2013. Being well surrounded has also been key.

  • Top Wine Picks! Traynor Family Vineyard

    Mike and Rebecca Traynor, the folks behind Traynor Family Vineyard, purchased the Prince Edward County property in 2008. They turned a cornfield into a vineyard of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as hybrid varieties Frontenac Gris and Marquette. Mike has a history with wine: working in retail shops and completing sommelier and winemaking courses before landing a gig as operations manager at Huff Estates. Later, he became the winemaker and general manager of Oak Heights. The first Traynor Family Vineyard harvest was in 2013.

    This week My Wine Canada is featuring Traynor Family Vineyard by offering free shipping on six or more bottles (feel free to mix and match).

  • Pair It Up! SpierHead's Pinot Noirs

    I’m not gonna lie. As a guy who writes about wine as part of his profession, it’s pretty cool to receive semi-regular deliveries of wine to my doorstep. I’m certainly not looking for sympathy when I say this, but I’ll say it anyways:

    A lot of the wine I receive samples of is, well, not very good.

    While those “not very good” wines come and go without my spending any ink or pixels on them, there are those wines received that barely hit the table before I bust open the box and pull a cork or two. In saying this, I received some samples from British Columbia’s SpierHead Winery the other day and, knowing my personal experience with, and their reputation for, producing incredibly well-crafted Pinot Noir, I tore into the package with gusto.

  • Pair It Up! Fall Dessert

    It's that time of the year when my sweet tooth starts to go crazy, and thankfully, while scouring the web for dessert recipes, I stumbled onto Food & Wine Magazine's Best Fall Desserts slideshow. I’ve always found pairing dessert with sweet wine a harder task than it seems. While matching complimentary flavours in a wine is important, matching sweetness levels is often essential. Biting into something very sweet can make the next thing you drink taste flat and dull by comparison, even if it's also sweet. Fortunately, the best route for discovering dessert pairings is experimentation.  Continue reading
