A very good, and good value, deep purple #wine from the Minervois in the south of France. The ripe cassis, dark plum, and spice make a good #winepairing with some BBQ @nicholynfarms Sante Fe Sausage. #barrie#downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford #newmarket#simcoecountyliving #livinginsimcoecounty @chateau_de.gourgazaud

I do love Pinot with cheese; so, it was time to indulge. A #winepairing with some aged Gouda was in order. The red cherry, allspice, subtle earthiness, and touch of leather in the #wine meshed wonderfully with the aged cheese. #barrie#downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood#bradford #newmarket #simcoecountyliving#livinginsimcoecounty Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery

Finally made it to Honsberger Estate Winery Niagara  last night for a summer dinner. Their Cab Franc was a super #winepairing with their Beef Burrito. The#wine notes of raspberry/blackberry, black cherry, and spice really suited the dish. #barrie#downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood#bradford #newmarket #simcoecountyliving#livinginsimcoecounty

A well balanced, lighter bodied #wine made in Prince Edward County  with Niagara fruit. It has bracing acidity, citrus leaning towards lime, great minerality, and is starting to show some petrol. Try this with fried chicken as a #winepairing since it will refresh your palate from the oil inherent in the dish. #barrie #downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford#newmarket #simcoecountyliving #livinginsimcoecounty Keint-he Winery & Vineyards

The last bottle from this Niagara  vintage and it’s very good. Lots of blackberry, dark plum with some cedary complexity and vanilla. It’s a prime example of why you should have a few bottles of #wine, and Niagara #wine is no exception, to see how it evolves with time. You sometimes need to hold onto wine for a few years to see how it ends up! #barrie #downtownbarrie#alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford #newmarket #simcoecountyliving#livinginsimcoecounty Featherstone Estate Winery

Famille Perrin is a large scale operation, but they care about quality and make some good value wines like this one. The grapes for this #wine are sourced from around Orange and they produce a good to very good Provençal style of Rose. It very pale with watermelon, light cherry, rose petal, some herbal spiciness, and a medium body. Try it with foods featuring olives like a Muffuletta sandwich. #barrie#downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford #newmarket#simcoecountyliving #livinginsimcoecounty

Quite lovely Niagara red #wine with sweet oak spice, moderate tannins, vanilla, black cherries, dark plums, and blueberries. Nice to serve with some BBQ bacon wrapped turkey medallions with blueberry BBQ sauce. #barrie#downtownbarrie #alliston #orillia #collingwood #bradford #newmarket#simcoecountyliving #livinginsimcoecounty Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery
