Sparkling Winos on CHCH Morning Live!

We had a ✨sparkling✨ time talking about Ontario bubbles and the Niagara Homegrown Wine Festival on CHCH TV this morning! 🥂 Check out the full segment below, and be sure to come hang out with us at RBC Picnic in the Vineyard this Friday to taste all of these wines… and so many more! (And don’t miss Tim Bolen’s epic sabre at the end of the video… nailed it! 😎🗡🍾)

Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore – Review

This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! (Tough job, we know! 😉) This week we’re sippin’ on Santa Margherita’s NV Prosecco Superiore, from the stunning Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG of Veneto, Italy. If you had a chance to read our Prosecco 101 post, you might recall that this area is home to the highest quality Prosecco in Italy. All grapes are harvested by hand and crafted into this vivacious and delicious style of wine. So how does Santa Margherita’s Prosecco stack up to the others? And is it a bottle of bubbles you should POP? 💁 Or is it a FLOP? 🙅 Let’s see!

A Weekend in Wine Country: Prince Edward County

We’ve been making our way out to Prince Edward County for almost a decade now, and it has been amazing to watch this corner of our beautiful province grow, with each passing year, into the incredible wine region that it is today. Every time we visit there are new experiences that “crop” up – from new wineries, to new restaurants and funky places to kick your feet up, to quirky shops and galleries – we can safely say that since our first trip back in 2009, Prince Edward County has really come into its own and developed some deep roots in the wine world!

Two Sisters Vineyards, A Family Affair!

Two Sisters Vineyards and us go way back. How far back? Well, back at least to the Summer of 2015 when we took a bike tour through Niagara-on-the-Lake, which included a pit stop at the super scenic and impressive winery. As we rode up the tree lined boulevard leading to the entrance, sweaty and tired (and thirsty 🙊), we had many questions. What’s the story of this beautiful vineyard? Who are the two sisters? Do they have a sparkling wine? And, when did this beautiful château pop up in Niagara-on-the-Lake? We may not have gotten all the answers on our …

Fielding Sparkling Rosé NV – Review

This is “POP or FLOP”, where we taste test sparkling wines so you don’t have to! (Tough job, we know! 😉) This week we’re sippin’ on Fielding Estate Winery’s NV Sparkling Rosé, from the beautiful Beamsville Bench (located on the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario, Canada). You know we love our Canadian sparkling wine… and have gone coast to coast in search of the best bubbly being produced in the world’s second largest country! 🇨🇦 So, where does this sparkling rosé rank? And is it a bottle of bubbles you should POP? 💁 Or is it a FLOP? 🙅 Let’s see!

10 Things We Learned About BC Bubbly!

What comes to mind when you think of British Columbia? The beautiful, mountainous landscape? That laid back, Western Canadian attitude? Maybe Lake Okanagan and fresh salmon? Or, if you’re into wine, the whole “big reds” thing? Well, all of those do come to mind for us, but… so does sparkling wine of course! Inspired by a coast-to-coast tasting of Canadian sparkling wine at the 2017 Terroir Symposium, we made it our personal mission to visit the main wine regions of Canada in 2017-2018. Image already added And, with our trip out to the Okanagan of British Columbia… our mission was …

Give it a SWIRL!

This past year has been a swirl! 😍🍾 With that as the overarching theme of our adventures in the world of wine so far, we couldn’t be more excited to participate in SwirlTO on June 1st , 2018 in Toronto! So what is SwirlTO? Well, to sum it up in one sentence, we’d say: SwirlTO is one of Toronto’s premier food and beverage events, celebrating premium wine, spirits and beer from right here in Ontario, and across the globe! SwirlTO’s goal is to heighten the senses and take the “guess work” out of experiencing and enjoying beverages (and cuisine!) from local and international …
