‘Simply Outstanding’ – reviews pour in about Twenty Valley wines

All of us at Savvy Company love wine & we love to have fun introducing you to new wineries & their wines.  Last week we hosted 20+ wineries from Niagara’s 20 Valley to strut their stuff at Outstanding in their Fields Taste & Buy event in Ottawa.  Despite the first big snowstorm, the event was sold out & received many rave reviews from wine lovers & wineries.

Here is a great review from one the bloggers – Jane Staples – who offers wine tips to help you start your Christmas shopping!

And more great news….20 Valley wineries are coming back in November 2014.  Stay tuned for the details.  If you would like to receive an invitation to this signature event, simply let us know with an email to cheers@savvycompany.ca

 

GUEST BLOG by Jane Staples

A sold-out winetasting event at the NAC last night, showed how delightful a Savvy wine tasting can be.  Over 300 people braved the slippery streets to be greeted warmly by Savvy Company staff.  Dozens of  outstanding wines from Niagara’s Twenty Valley wine region were available to taste and to order.  This is probably the most fun you can have while doing some holiday shopping and stocking up for home entertaining at the same time. A disc jockey and a raffle added to the fun.

My top picks…

I started the evening’s tasting with some bubbly from Cave Spring: lovely green apple and citrus on the nose and palate, a fine creamy fizz and a long citrus finish made this a perfect way to wake up the taste buds and start the tasting adventure.

My favourite wine discovery (after all, I already knew that I love champagne) was Kacaba Pinot Noir VQA 2007. Earthy, plummy, tart fruit flavours and well-balanced acidity and tannins. Sure to pair well with roast pork, duck or turkey.

Another happy find was Green Lane Chardonnay VQA 2010.  Fresh citrus and pear on the nose, repeated with subtle oak and vanilla on the palate. Definitely a wine worth remembering.

Last stop was at the Vineland Estates table, where I sampled their 2011 Rose.  If you like strawberries or dreaming about summertime, this one’s for you. Fresh strawberries on the nose and tart berries on the palate, which sweetens during a lingering finish.

Want to order these outstanding Ontario wines?

No problem! You can order any of the wines featured at Outstanding in their Fields online or call the Savvy Team anytime on 613-SAVVYCO (613-728-8926) to make arrange a shipment of Ontario wines for you.  Place your order before December 8th to take advantage of the free shipping offer on a case of wine.

This was Savvy’s last wine tasting event til 2014…we can’t wait to see what the New Year brings!

Hats off to Savvy Company for another terrific wine event!

– Jane
