Ontario Wines Reviewed : The Wines to Get Now (vol. 72a)

01 Oct 2020


Very little by way of tweaks this week, if you can see them then you've been paying real close attention ... so let's get right to the wines and everything else this week.

In the e-blast there are the usual 6 wines I want to put on your radar: a couple of County Chardonnays and four big reds, depending on your taste you can grab a Baco, a Cab or a blend.

My International Selection is a white from Spain, perfect for the dying days of "summer", or early fall, while the weather is still nice out; it's a Vintages Essential so it is always available at the LCBO. Of course there are the videos: a pair of Ontario and International wines, plus the article links are all pretty self explanatory this time, except for one. And this our "Quote of the Week" comes to us from Rob Power of Creekside and Queenston Mile.

I'm currently working on a series of articles for Distillery District Magazine about the Ontario harvest, the first one comes out October 5, I'll provide a link once it is available.

Be safe - stay healthy - drink well.
