OntarioWineReview Newsletter 159 ... June 2011
Over the years, many of you have been kind enough to tell me how much you love the OntairoWineReview website - how it looks, it's user friendliness and above all its content - but as we all know, in life, change is inevitable. I myself am never a big fan of change, especially when something is working, in fact I have been resisting my webmaster requests for the last 2 years. But in April he told me the inevitable time had finally arrived, potential security risks, incompatibility issues and lack of IT support from programmers will force OntarioWineReview to revamp itself by June. And so it has come to pass. As of June 1, 2011, OntarioWineReview has a brand new look, which I hope you`ll enjoy. Our new look should make things easier to find, easier to read and easier to use.
During our change over and update you might find some broken links and the occasional error might pop-up, this too is inevitable as we fix the site and get all the content back in its rightful place - the most glaring of which will be within the wine review section, all the reviews (1200+) have to be moved over to the newly built database and re-categorized one-by-one ... the good news here is that once done you will be able to search the wine reviews by winery, by varietal, by region and by type.
Wine Event Spotlight: Two Very Special Events
Food and Wine Experience - June 13 at About Thyme Bistro ... Table to Palate, a company that brings wine, people and food together, for a fun interactive experience, is pleased to pair Wine Writer Michael Pinkus (OntarioWineReview.com) with Schott Zwiesel stemware, About Thyme Bistro and 4 of Ontario's Premier wineries (Creekside, Nyarai, Rosewood and Henry of Pelham) for an interactive evening of food, wine and fun … best of all you walk away with the very glasses you drank from (because we think you’ll want to use them every day). Tonight, you’ll taste great food and wine, and find out how these two staples of life compliment each other, as well as discover how glassware can make all the difference on how you experience your wine.
