On the Road with the Grape Guy

Ontario Wine Reviews: 44 Wines from 16 Wineries - Spring 2021 (Part 1)

14 May 2021

Not all reviews make the newsletter, there's just so many good wines and not enough space ... so every three to six months (or so) I clear out the backlog of wines ... here are the reviews that were written but until now have never seen the light of day. 

This time there were 80+ wines to review so I broke them down into two sections - this is PART 1
