Wine is a great idea for many types of gifts. Some people give a batch or a gift certificate for things like birthdays, anniversaries, weddings of close friends and family. Others use bottles from their batch to put in gift baskets, take to parties as a host gift, use as Christmas gifts or thank you gifts. Some also like to use bottles of wine as a gift for retirements, birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, post secondary graduations and many other celebrations.

Food & Wine Pairing
Make sure you sign up for our annual Food and Wine Experience Monday November 23rd featuring the Limited Edition wines for 2015.
What you are looking for is harmony and balance in your pairing. Wine on its own tastes different than when it is paired with food. If it is complementary, wine can impart its flavours to a dish, thereby giving the food an added layer, or food can lend its flavours to the wine. If they clash, or if one overpowers the other, the experience will under whelm and disappoint and can sometimes lead to flavours that are not present in either, like an unpleasant metallic taste which can result from high tannin content and oily fish. With the right pairing, wine and food can combine to give your palate great pleasure!
