A Few Wine Suggestions for Canadian Thanksgiving 2022

 mywinepal  October 5, 2022

Canadian Thanksgiving is on Monday, October 10, 2022.  You may be making a list of ingredients to buy for your Thanksgiving dinner.  A traditional / historical dinner with turkey or ham, brussel sprouts, yam, and mashed potatoes with gravy.  Or you may go other ways with roast beef, salmon, Beyond Meat, or other meat substitutes.  I like to think of…

Tasting Pinots at Spearhead Winery

 mywinepal  September 22, 2022

Do you love Pinot Noir and Chardonnay?  If you have not tried the wines from Spearhead Winery in Kelowna, you should.  Top quality award-winning wines.  I stopped by the winery to have a casual tasting outside.  I went through their four Pinot Noirs, one Pinot Gris, and two Riesling.  No Chardonnay today, but I recently reviewed both wines on mywinepal.com…

Spearhead Winery Saddle Block Chardonnay 2020 and Clone 95 Chardonnay 2020

2 Classy Chardonnay from Spearhead Winery

 mywinepal  August 15, 2022

Beautiful and elegant are two words that I would use to describe the two Chardonnay wines that I received from Spearhead Winery in the Okanagan. Winemaker, Grant Stanley, has outdone himself with such excellent wines. One wine is from grapes from their Saddle Block estate vineyard, with a mix of Chardonnay clones 76, 95, and 548, and the other is…

 mywinepal  July 29, 2022

We all like to receive awards.  Knowing that we are good, or the best at something.  Fastest runner at the 100-yard dash, smartest in math, etc. when we are in school.  Then industry awards when we go to work.  There are many wine awards around the world, but for Canadian wineries, being recognized by a local agency, like WineAlign, means…

Here is an appetizer that you may want to consider for Valentine’s Day, made using Hooray “Bacon”, which is a plant-based alternative to bacon.  The entire recipe below that I received from Hooray Foods is plant-based.  And as I am “MyWinePal”, I’ve also given you ideas for two wines, one white and one red, to pair with this appetizer after…

MyWinePal’s Near-Perfect 4.5-5 Star Wines for 2021

 mywinepal  December 22, 2021

As I mentioned for my five-star wine ratings this year, COVID limited the number of events and thus wines that I could taste that came from around the world to BC.  That being said, I am grateful for the BC wineries that sent me wines to taste, plus wines from wine agencies.  There are many wines that fit into my…

 mywinepal  October 8, 2021

Canadian Thanksgiving 2021 is going to be very different this year for many of us who are accustomed to getting together with our parents, brothers and sister, and maybe aunts and uncles for dinner. Just like Thanksgiving 2020, but now that many of us have been vaccinated we can open our bubble a little.  I’ve checked through my BC wine…
