Dear Wine Ladies,

As a fan of Sauvignon Blanc my wife recently enjoyed a wine that was labeled Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc The Fumé from California. She absolutely loved it!Does “The Fumé" refer to another grape that is used in the making of this wine?

Dear Wine Ladies,



As a fairly recent transplant from the west coast via a brief stint in Calgary and Saskatoon, I am dismayed by the lack of Okanagan wines found here on the shelves and across Canada. I recently discovered a stunner of a Chardonnay, although a little pricey, well worth it from what was in the bottle to the exquisite and innovative packaging. It was called Perpetua, was luscious and creamy with an aroma of lemon, absolutely delicious. With the spring coming, I am wondering if this company makes any equally impressive red wines, and if so how would I go about finding them.

Dear Wine Ladies,

I was thinking of bringing an icewine to a dinner party being thrown to congratulate a friend of mine on her newly acquired role in a television series.  A lover of sweet wines icewine seemed like a good choice but then I learned there are also sparkling ice wines.What are they like and would this be an appropriate wine to bring? Are they served chilled like a regular white wine and are they served in white wine glasses?

Dear Wine Ladies,

I am a culinary student and am part of a group project that is looking at cooking with alcohol. What are some of the reasons for cooking with wine, what does it do to the food and does the acidity in wine play a role?

Dear Wine Ladies,

Over the last little while it seems that Spanish wines seem to be popping up at various dinner parties and get-together's more and more. We really enjoyed one of our most recent white wine discoveries called Viura (we think) which we were told was a Spanish wine that cost less than $15.00. Neither my boyfriend or I can remember where it came from in Spain and was wondering if this is the name of an area, a brand name or a town. Any additional info on this wine would be appreciated.
