I am not an expert, just a discerning wine lover or amateur de vin (as the French say), but everyone has a different palate, likes and dislikes so it must be understood that any of my recommendations are personal. I just hope that you find them useful or at the very least - interesting. I also hope you enjoy my photos. It is more fun sharing then keeping them backed up on a hard drive.

STAFF WINERY- ROBERT'S BLOCK - RIESLING 2008 - (D) Jordan, Ontario $21.00

A tasty and very memorable wine from my "Wrapped up in the Valley" tour. Lime, peach and mineral nose that follows through on the palate with a refreshing streak of acid. This wine dances in your mouth.
