Dear Wine Ladies,

I tasted a delicious Vidal Icewine which I learned was aged in oak. Is this typical? Are Icewines ok to age or should they be consumed when young?

Dear The Wine Ladies,

We have been invited to my month-in-laws for Thanksgiving dinner, and I would like to surprise her with a decanter as a gift. She is just getting into wine and I thought she might enjoy this surprise instead of flowers or chocolates.

Would I be able to find one that would fall into my limited budget of around $35-$50? I'd like to share a few words of wisdom with my gift as well, if you wouldn't mind offering a few tips it would be greatly appreciated.

Should all red wines be decanted and what are the main reasons for decanting?

Dear Wine Ladies,

At a recent dinner party I attended the hostess noticed a small amount of sediment that looked like tiny pieces of glass at the bottom of a bottle of white wine from Germany. I was a little hesitant to drink the wine but one of the guests assured us the wine was fine and there was no cause to worry. What were those little pebble-like stones and are they really harmless?

 Dear Wine Ladies,



We'll be welcoming a gruesome crowd for our first Halloween party at our new condo acquired just last month. A range of wines, always our first beverage of choice, will be served but we wondered if you knew of any cocktails or drinks that are made with wine, preferably red, and/or if you know of any Halloween themed wine labels out there?

Dear Wine Ladies,



I was thinking of bringing a Vidal icewine to mark the occasion of a friend’s first movie role but then learned there are also sparkling icewines. What are they like and would this be an appropriate wine to bring? Are they served chilled like a regular white wine?
