Ontario Wines Reviewed : The Wines to Get Now (vol. 69)

14 Aug 2020


As I continue to search for the look for the new-look e-Blast, you folks continue to be my guinea pigs in the testing sandbox, yes I am mixing my metaphors but these definitely are the days for testing out new stuff online, while staying at home; in the end I am sure I will stumble across, instead of having my "eureka" moment, when it comes to the design - we shall see. Thank for coming on the journey with me.

Now, let's get to it. In this week’s blast there are the usual 6 wines you need to put on your radar for future purchases: there's a wow sparkling wine, a new Chardonnay from an old friend named Henry, a couple of new wineries pop up with offerings, a "gorgeous piece of wine-making" on the pond, and a Pinot producer that continues to show why they made the right choice.

There is no international selection this week, but it shall return in two weeks time … A link to the Rose Report can be found in the middle of the blast (in case you haven't seen it, or your supply is running out), plus an addendum is in the works of all the new Roses I have tasted since its original publication in early July. You'll also find the usual video links and a new format for the “Side Bar” articles - a what's behind the picture kinda-thing - hope you like it.

Be safe - stay healthy - drink well.
