Our Jazz Garden line up: Canada’s Seriously Cool Chardonnay to take on the Big Apple March 8th! Last May, a group of Ontario wine producers headed to the U.K. to take part in the Seriously Cool Chardonnay event that featured the province’s top Chardonnays at a debut tasting held at Canada House in London for wine critics and the trade. The Ontario Chardonnays were tasted ... and praised ... by such noted British wine critics as Jancis Robinson, Steven Spurrier and Oz Clarke. Buoyed by the success of the London event, British Columbia has now joined Ontario to take on the Big Apple in another Seriously Cool Chardonnay event on March 8th for key wine writers and members of the wine trade.

For the upcoming New York City event, more than 100 Chardonnays from Ontario and British Columbia were previewed by a panel of wine experts and 54 top wines were selected. These wines were poured at the Ontario Wine Society’s dress rehearsal last week at the Toronto Lawn and Tennis Club in Toronto. We had a chance to taste and meet some of the winemakers: and principles: before they head to NYC for their March debut on the 50th floor of the prestigious McGraw-Hill building in midtown Manhattan. Ontario makes some very impressive cool climate, Burgundian-like Chardonnays, and other styles including sparkling and Icewines. Good luck everyone!

A few tips on wine and chocolate tasting.

For planning your Valentine's Day date, think about offering a range of chocolates, maybe five or six, with a varying degree of cacao content resulting in different levels of sweetness and pure chocolate strength. Consider too, chocolates that contain nuts or toffee, opening up additional possibilities. Next select a range of wines, keeping in mind that in general sweeter wines such as icewines, sherry, tawny port or a Banyuls from France pair really well with chocolate. Throw in a fruity Zinfandel too for a different experience! don't forget, it's all about personal taste! Many sommeliers and experts love the pairing of dry Cabernets or fruity wines with dark chocolate while others opt for the classic, and romantic chocolate dipped strawberries and Champagne. Another option, making life simple and taking out the guesswork would be to consider the absolutely delicious chocolate on the market called BRIX; the first ever to be crafted specifically to pair with wine. After much trial and error, the founder Dr. Proia an Ohio pulmonologist (who appreciated the antioxidants found in both wine and chocolate) developed three blends of chocolate with their root being of single origin Ghanaian chocolate known for their red fruit tones particularly suited to wine.


A few chocolate tasting tips that we've picked up over time include the advice of chocolatiers and connoisseurs to not bite into the chocolate, but rather to allow the chocolate to slowly melt in your mouth maximizing the full range of flavors, texture and finish.

Sample the wine first on its own, and then sample the chocolate. Next taste the wine again along with the chocolate in your mouth. Is the sum of the parts greater than the whole? Notice if certain flavors of either the wine or the chocolate are heightened or perhaps diminished? Share your taste experience and your thoughts with the others.
Be sure to provide your guests with several palate cleansers such as fresh bread, simple crackers and pitchers of water. A selection of fresh cheeses accompanied by fresh fruit would round out the evening beautifully!
