BC’s Mayhem Wines‘ wines are a treat for me.  Not causing Mayhem but pleasure and enjoyment.  I have two bottles of enjoyment to share with you; Mayhem Wines Naramata Bench Riesling 2022 and Okanagan Valley Cabernet Merlot 2021.  2022 was cooler to start but a long growing season producing quality fruit.  2021 was challenging with major forest fires followed by…

Mayhem Sparkling Wines in a Can on Canada Day

 mywinepal  July 2, 2023

On Canada Day, I was trying to drink red and white wine, to match the colours of our flag. But opening two bottles of wine for that is excessive. The solution is to open two cans of wine. Canned wine for “Can”ada Day.  There are so many canned wines now and they come in a perfect sippable size of 250ml….

 mywinepal  November 3, 2021  1 Comment on A Unique Wine in BC: Mayhem Wines Fortified Gewurztraminer 2018

This is likely the most unique wine made in BC; Mayhem Wines Fortified Gewurztraminer 2018.  Gewurztraminer is generally a grape that typically offers lychee, citrus, sweet spices and more; overall a very flavourful grape.  Mayhem Wines took their grapes and fermented them down to 19 brix before being fortified with 93% alcohol. This wine was then put to barrel and…

Mediterranean Baked Halibut and Mayhem Wines

Pairing BC Halibut with Mayhem Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé Wines

Besides spot prawn season, I think many BC’ers also look forward to halibut season.  It makes great fish and chips, but you can also cook it in other ways.  I received two 6 oz halibut portions from Organic Ocean to cook and pair with BC wine.  I decided to make Mediterranean Baked Halibut with Vegetables.  An easy to make dish…
