The one day you failed to honour the lady who carried you, reared you and continues to care about you. Mother's Day has arrived (on Sunday, May 14, if you're truly confused), and you need a gift for Mom. But no more wallowing. The days, hours, or minutes are ticking away, and you must act quickly. You'll shatter your mother's poor little heart if you don't. But, honestly, you'll be OK. You can give her a gift card from Stocked Cellars right now, and she'll be grateful. Cin, Cin, Diane
There are just ten days till St. Patrick's Day. Are you wine ready to keep chewing and sipping in tune with your favourite Irish jig?
You'll be glad to hear that many choices are available if you're hunting for the ideal wine. The strong personality of Aquarius is the one thing about them that you should know. They frequently feel strongly about their opinions and aren't hesitant to speak up and support them. This assessment shows that cabernet sauvignon is the right beverage for them.
Or share a bottle of Ravine Vineyards as part of your Christmas celebration. 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold red that won't back down; this wine's aromas of dark forest fruits entice the nose, while hints of bay leaf and licorice give it a touch of regional flavour. On the palate, a flood of rich plum, dark cherry, and blackcurrant make their presence felt, obviously dominating but without overpowering the senses. The finish is excellent, with plenty of length and a dry finish.
And It's the hap-happiest season of all, so forget milk and cookies. It's time to stock your cellar, as this holiday season is around the corner. Dial your festive holiday feast up to 11 with these food and organic/vegan wine pairing suggestions. Tell someone to be of good cheer, and this year may be a little less traditional and a lot boozier.
It'll be ideal for our adult Halloween party. It's filled with candy corn, m&m's, starbursts, Reese's peanut butter cups, fuzzy peaches, Kit Kat, popcorn, and, of course, a glass or two of vino. Here are some (personally tried and proven) matching ideas to spice up your Halloween evening. Thank you, "The Bakermama," for the inspiration and great image.

You can enjoy cozy fireside gatherings & warm comfort food into the next season. For the 2022 vintage, Ontario has had fantastic weather in the vineyard; warm days are required for sugar production in the grapes, followed by chilly nights that assist retain aromas and acidity. This pattern, referred to as diurnal variation, is critical for wine quality, structure, and balance. Why not celebrate the season and please your palate with delicious flavours of Ontario-grown wines?
Use SALT, ice, and water in 30 minutes for the quickest way to cool a warm bottle of wine. 👇 1kg of ice in a bucket, filled with enough water to immerse the bottle - and 100g of salt. Because saltwater has a lower freezing point than ordinary water, adding salt to the ice solution allows the temperature to drop below zero. So go ahead and allow that bottle of wine to be transformed from room temperature to ice cold in 30 minutes. Will you be trying this LIFEhack this weekend?
The antioxidants included in red wine, according to the Mayo Clinic, may help reduce the development of coronary artery disease, which leads to heart attacks. Pour yourself a glass of Docklands, our Old Vines Marechal Foch, and guard your heart! (Special thanks to Kurtis Casucci for this photo)
Here's a trick so you'll never waste a drop of wine! Not that you do! Instead of pouring your wine down the sink... Who does such a thing? Pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze it. When you want to add wine to a stew, roast, sauce, or gravy, add a handful of these frozen wine cubes, and you're done! No need to open a new bottle of wine before you are ready! Perfect! What is your best wine-saving tip? With Vin, Diane #drinkstockedcellars
I intended for it always to be a side venture. I wanted to have something small of my own to pay for things like organic foods from local farmers, invest in my future, and hopefully be able to afford to fill my wine cabinet! I could have never imagined that Stocked Cellars would have become what it is today. In 36 months, I’ve served over 342 new clients with premium local small-batch Ontario wines and ciders! Thank you to every one of my devoted customers. #drinkstockedcellars

And for a good reason, too (other than it tastes fantastic). What’s excellent about orange wine is that you can pair it with a variety of foods. Orange wine has some qualities that are present in both red & white wine. So, it has the tannins in red wines and the acidity in white wine. The result is that you can enhance your meal-don't be afraid to try it with other exotic curries from Japanese, Korean, Moroccan, and Ethiopian cuisine. Also, it pairs so well with bitter vegetables & fish.
You can't categorize orange wine like you can red or white wine. Orange wines are white wines designed to look and taste like red wines. They are a sort of "skin-contact" wine, which means the juice ferments with the grape skins. (In other words, no harm to actual oranges during the production of orange wine.) And while wine isn't new (it's been around for millennia), consumers are just now developing a taste for it. 🍊 Is orange wine the new rosé?
I was forty when I first discovered BC wine country. It was my mother's 60th birthday weekend. For days we drove from winery to winery, tasting wines in hopes of finding the winning one. I stuck to drinking reds- a sure win. But of all the wineries, it was a Pinot Noir that captured my attention. Summer's only rule: DRINK WINE
