Our Savvy Sommeliers taste oodles of wines. We want to make it easy for you to entertain with wines…so we have taken the guessing game out of figuring out which wines to serve at your next dinner party.  We have created Savvy Dinner Party Packs.  We choose the Ontario winery, sample and select a variety of wines that you won’t find at a wine shop (adding for an extra conversation piece). These wines are delivered right to your door.  Sparkling, white, red and something for dessert – all you need to do is create your menu & guest list! 

 

 

Great Stuff from Huff!

There is a buzz about Canada’s fastest growing wine region – Prince Edward County – located in on the shores of Lake Ontario.  Less than a three hour drive from both Ottawa and Toronto, it is a great weekend getaway destination.  The Savvy sommeliers visit this area often and have seen fields come alive as vineyards. Huff Estates has been integral in growing ‘The County’ as a bustling wine region.  Winemaker Frederic Picard left Burgundy, France to train with master winemakers in the four corners of the globe before deciding to join Huff Estates.  Huff’s great wines have a French influence that is being well received and numerous awards!

Taste the Difference Terroir Makes

The vineyards at Coyote’s Run Winery in Niagara, are uniquely situated on two very distinct types of soil: red clay and black clay. To illustrate the wine term ‘terroir’ and appreciate the difference soil make on the resulting taste of the wine, the winemaker has grown blocks of Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir grape varieties in both red and black clay.  He harvested the grapes separately and processed the grapes in the identical winemaking fashion.  The result is although same grape, you can taste the difference that terroir makes. A fun gift for any wine lover.
