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.

Great wines from LENS & PEC

Recently I attended two tastings - The Taste of the County & the Ontario Wine Society's Shores of Lake Erie tasting - that allowed me to access two Ontario Wine Regions that I don't give enough space in my blog. This is not because I don't think the wines are wonderful, but is simply due to accessibility. I split my time between Toronto and Niagara which means I seldom travel to LENS or PEC. There were so many nice wines, this may just be part one!

Here are some standout QPR wines:

Lake Erie North Shore
Muscadere - Pinot Noir - 2009 - $25.00 - strawberry, red flower, gentle earthiness, nicely integrated.

Muscadere - Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 - $30.00 - Herbaceous, blackberry & plum, full bodied & elegant.

Prince Edward County
Norman Hardie - County Pinot Noir, 2009 - $35.00 -  Bright Strawberry, integrated minerality - long finish!

Karlo Estates - Riesling, 2010 - $22.00 - stone fruit & citrus nose some flint, complex, extended finish.
