Who knows local wine better than the people who make it? Just like the Oscars of the entertainment world, the Cuvée Awards of the Ontario wine industry is peer-judged .Earlier this year 51 Ontario winemakers gathered for a blind tasting and judging of a record number of wines. In total 12,000 wine glasses, over 1000 bottles of wine, and 63 wineries submitted 264 wines that they thought were the best in their line-ups. The tasting is blind and the only information that the judge is given is the name of the varietal or blend and vintage of the wine.

Last night the Ontario wine industry put away their rubber boots and overalls and  donned their finest for the red carpet awards and gala at the Fallsview  Casino in Niagara Falls for the 24th annual Cuvée Gala and Awards. A total of 26 awards were given out in a special Oscar style ceremony.

 And the winner are.....

Toronto: The iconic Hockey Hall of Fame was the place to be Jan 30th, 2012 for the official launch of a line of hockey inspired wines, “Hat Trick Red” and “Hat Trick White”.

The idea is based on the tradition of the “Hat Trick” where a hat trick occurs when a player scores three goals in a single game, culminating with fans throwing hats onto the ice from the stands. Pretty cool idea and as the “Hat Trick Red” and “Hat Trick White” are each produced from 3 red grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz)  and 3 white varieties (Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Chardonnay)  by 3 winemakers ( Scott McGregor, Jason Roller and Tom Green) from the state of the art, Niagara-on-the-Lake winery, Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits.

The “Hat-Trick Red” and “Hat- Trick White” sell for $12.95 per bottle and are available within Ontario at the LCBO, Diamond Estates "The Winery" in NOTL, Diamond Estates "The Wine Stire"n Cliffside Plaza on Kingston Road in Scarbrough, in a variety of local retaurants and bars and on line at www.diamondestates.ca/shop The wine is also available in Alberta.

Drink now, or later?

You might ponder of the red wines in your cellar…

At one of the wineries on our icewine tour last Sunday the question came up of aged wines... When to drink and not to drink.  Certainly not all wines are made for aging, with over 90% being made to enjoy within 1-2 years or as soon as you get home with the bottle. But there are those that can, and do live on for decades. Tips for Typical long lifers?

Opt for certain grape varieties or blends if looking to cellar your bottle; possibilities include big Barolos, or other wines made with the Nebbiolo grape, Bordeaux, big California Cabernets,  Syrahs from the Northern Rhone, great quality Shiraz such as Penfolds Grange to name a few...
