Vikram and his wife Meeru later opened up a second restaurant and market…

NL Seminar: Cool Climate Chardonnay – Canada vs the World

Many winemakers say that Chardonnay expresses its terroir better than any other grape variety.  It can be delicate, floral, complex, creamy, minerally, muscular, juicy or refreshing.  And to quote I4C, “when Chardonnay is complemented with a bit of cool – cool by altitude, by latitude, by marine influence or by climatic conditions – it can result in magical wines that can easily refute the already waning “ABC – Anything but Chardonnay” movement.” Explore and taste fine examples of cool climate…

NL Seminar: Mythbusters: Who says you can’t pair wine with…

Remarkably, there are still those that believe you can’t pair wine with certain cuisines.  Perhaps it is because most Asian and Latino cuisines (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Malaysian, Mexican, Central American, etc) evolved in the absence of domestic wine cultures.  Or, maybe the unique and distinctive flavours of spices such as cardamom, coriander and tumeric, unfamiliar to the European and North American palates when first introduced to these nations, have created a perception that they are beyond the realm of…
