Wine 101 : Niagara Chardonnays,
a New World Wonder?

It's white, it's clean, it’s crisp and it doesn't stain your teeth red at cocktail parties. Can you guess what I'm talking about? Unless you've been drinking wine all day, I'm pretty sure you were all able to guess Chardonnay. Not many know this, but the Niagara region is known for producing world-class Chardonnay because of our "cool" climate. We make some of the best Chardonnay in the world right here in our own backyard, which is one of the reasons why I am such a big supporter of the Ontario wine industry and why I possess a huge passion for Chardonnay and wine alike. It must be said in advance that I am not a sommelier (wine expert), I am just a wine enthusiast who wishes to share some knowledge and good taste with YOU! So if you like a nice glass of wine every now and then like I do, follow my weekly posts as I taste, evaluate and recommend various Niagara region Chardonnays, impart some wine knowledge and share with you some of my little annoyances and wine CORKS.


  1. I'm excited!! Can't wait until the next post :)

  2. I hope this blog will be very educational for me. My wine knowledge consists of red, white and Baby Duck. Keep with the wine tips so I can look dignified in front of my friends.
