The February blahs got you down? Tired of the crazy warm, cold, killer storm, warm, cold, yin and yang of this winter yet? I know I am. But I am finding solace in the big comfort wines of Niagara.
I have a front patio, and, I’m not bragging or anything like that, but it’s a lovely brick patio with four well-worn Muskoka chairs.
Note: Donald Triggs, notable wine industry figure most known as the former chief of Vincor Canada, follows his dream of crafting iconic wines from Canadian soil with the launch of CULMINA, a boutique family estate winery in the South Okanagan. This is a news release about the project.
There are a handful benchmark wines in Niagara that belong in a category all their own. They are so unique that they have few peers to be judged against yet are sought out by collectors every vintage.
I get a little nostalgic (and a tad sad) when I pass by the now-empty winery on Old Highway 8 between Vineland and Beamsville that once housed the mighty Wayne Gretzky winery.
