Two Rosé Wines from Near and FarPR SAMPLE 

 mywinepal  August 9, 2023

Rosé wines are a hot commodity. Recently we had a one-day Rosé wine festival held outdoors with beautiful sunny weather to complement the wine. Rose wines are made around the world. I picked two rosé wines that I have in my cellar. One is from BC, Stag’s Hollow Blanc de Noirs 2021, and the other hails from southern Italy, Tormaresca…

Back to the Future with Concrete and Clay for Wine Making

 mywinepal  July 5, 2023

The history of using amphora and concrete tanks for winemaking dates back centuries. Amphorae, large clay vessels with narrow necks and handles, were widely used in ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and Romans for storing and transporting wine. These vessels provided an ideal environment for fermentation and aging, as the porous nature of clay allowed for a gentle exchange…

A Preview of BC’s Vintage 2022 With the Winemakers

 mywinepal  May 24, 2023  2 Comments on A Preview of BC’s Vintage 2022 With the Winemakers

In the late Fall, I interviewed a few BC winemakers about their 2022 harvest, but the wines were still fermenting in tanks, barrels or other vessels.  The winemakers sounded optimistic, thanks to the warm Fall weather.  But how would the wines taste?  This we explored with the following winemakers at the BC Vintage 2022 media preview: Laurent Fadanni, Whispering Horse…

The Heart of Wine Country Spring Wine Release 2023

 mywinepal  April 13, 2023

The Heart of Wine Country encompasses Okanagan Falls and Skaha Lake.  This area I feel does exceptionally well with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.  I look forward to tasting wines from these two places in the Okanagan and having a chance at their The Heart of Wine Country Spring Wine Release.  Here are some of the wines I quite enjoyed….

Stag's Hollow Winery Renaissance Pinot Noir 2020 and Syrah 2020

Two Renaissance Reds from Stag’s Hollow Winery

 mywinepal  December 28, 2022

Today I was fortunate to taste and review two Renaissance red wines from the Okanagan’s Stag’s Hollow Winery.  Their premium Renaissance wines represent their best barrels from only the best vintages and are made in small lots.  Needless to say, if you like my descriptions of these wines buy them asap as they will sell out quickly.  The two wines…

Stag's Hollow Winery Dolcetto 2019 and Merlot 2020

Stag’s Hollow Winery Merlot 2020 and Dolcetto 2019

 mywinepal  October 10, 2022

Do you prefer a softer, less tannic, red wine?  I usually think of Pinot Noir and Gamay Noir, but the two wines I recently tasted fit into that category from Stag’s Hollow Winery, a Dolcetto and a Merlot.  Dolcetto is known as a recommended pairing with pizza.  I think pasta in a tomato sauce would work.  Merlot typically has medium…

I have two single-vineyard Pinot Noir wines from Stag’s Hollow Winery in Okanagan Falls. Both are delicious but are quite different in colour, aroma, and flavour. I have wines from their Stag’s Hollow Vineyard and their Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard. Both wines are unfined, unfiltered and vegan friendly. Before telling you about these wines, I would like to point out the…

Stag's Hollow Simply Noir 2020 and Steelhead Trout Pairing

Stag’s Hollow Simply Noir 2020 and Steelhead Trout Pairing

 mywinepal  July 3, 2022

This is one of the best food and wine pairings that I will remember for a long time. I opened a bottle of Stag’s Hollow Winery Simply Noir 2020 wine and paired it with a grilled filet of steelhead trout from Fisherman’s Market in Burnaby Heights. The trout was recommended to me by Chef Tyrone at the shop. He said…
