Bee Impressed with Ontario’s Rosewood Estate Winery & MeaderyPR SAMPLE 

 mywinepal  October 9, 2023

I received recommendations from a friend to visit Rosewood Winery & Meadery while I was visiting the Niagara region.  I was curious to attend, in part because I had not tried mead.  This winery, started in 2000, is owned by the Roman family and originated from Ukraine.  They are also the only winery in Ontario with a license to produce…

Tasting Carter Wine Company Lemberger Merlot 2017 and The Hawk 2016PR SAMPLE 

 mywinepal  September 4, 2023

It’s September, so let’s start looking for red wines to enjoy as the nights get longer and the weather gets cooler.  I have two red blends from the Carter Wine Company in Okanagan Falls.  Carter Wine Company The Hawk 2016, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc, and Carter Wine Company Lemberger Merlot 2017.  The grapes for both…

Rosewood Estates Winery PTG 2020

 Anita Dorion  July 3, 2021

Rosewood Estates Winery PTG 2020 (ON $25) Rosewood Estates Winery does it again with this very chuggable red blend, PTG and it’s chillable too, which makes it perfect for the patio or a park hangout. (and lucky for us in Ontario, it’s finally the season for it.)  Notes of juicy raspberries, strawberries, red plums, tomato leaf, oregano, and sun-dried tomato…

BC Rose wine in glass

BC Rosé Wines Continue to Please

 mywinepal  January 12, 2021

I thought I’d write this article about BC Rosé wines as rosé wines have been on a growth tear for several years.  Plus checking my website stats for the last 4 weeks, the top query was “Mateus Rosé Wine“.  Mateus, from Portugal, has been around for many years, enjoyed by my parents, and is now updated and reaching out to…

BC wines continue to shine and there are…

Be Impressed by the Latest Wines from Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery

 mywinepal  August 21, 2019

Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery is located in West Kelowna, not too far away from Mission Hill Family Estate Winery.  It has been around for many years (winery started in 2001 with the vineyards in 1968) and I have recommended their wines in the past.  I still have a bottle of their 2003 Summit Reserve Semillon, which was aged in oak…

The Cooler Side of BC’s Emerging Wine Regions

 mywinepal  July 24, 2017

In my previous article, I divided BC’s emerging wine regions into a warmer and a cooler side.  In this article I would like to concentrate on the cooler side, which for me covers the Salmon Arm and Lake Country areas to the north of the Okanagan Valley.  Lake Country is warmer than Salmon Arm, which is to the north of…

Do You Know About BC’s Emerging Wine Regions?

 mywinepal  July 13, 2017

Everyone knows about the Okanagan Valley as a wine region, and some may also know about the Similkameen which is on the southwestern edge of the Okanagan, but what about BC’s emerging wine regions, covering the Kootenays, Lillooet and Thompson Shuswap?  I had a chance to go on a trip hosted by the Wines of BC to visit Lillooet and…

Recline Ridge Wines Deliver Quality – Domo Arigato

 mywinepal  July 26, 2015

Where is Tappen, BC?  I have not heard of Tappen either until I visited Recline Ridge Vineyards and Winery.  Tappen is a small town a few minutes drive west of Salmon Arm, BC.  It is not in the hotter, drier climate of the Okanagan.  The area is lush with forest, rolling hills, farmland, and the large water body, Shuswap Lake….

Is My Wine Corked? My Mt. Boucherie Blaufränkisch Experience

 mywinepal  September 2, 2014

In my previous article, I reviewed a flight of wines I received from Okanagan’s Mt. Boucherie winery.  One of the bottles in question was a red wine made from the Blaufränkisch grape.  I have tasted wine from this grape before, so when I opened the bottle the wine really had a subdued nose and flavours.  I checked the cork and…
