I think they changed managers and the new bottles are not so exciting.
For example, i would not consider a wine found commonly in other provinces a vintage product because it is now in Manitoba, such as Mission Hill Riesling ($15; 50,000 cases per year produced). Now if they ordered the Mission Hill Reserve Riesling ($22; 8000 cases per year produced) which can only be found in BC and some select areas of AB, then that is a bottle which one should find in the vintage section.

NOTE: the Mission Hill example are not real bottles but just a stand in label since i cannot remember the ones i was looking at a few weeks back

There are so many lovely wines out of Ontario. It is a shame most US wine mags never review anything but Cdn icewines.

If your non-icewines start beating CA/US and/or French wines in international competitions, I'm sure you'd get more press. That's what put CA on the map, anyway. laugh

I actually liked the movie. Not hugely deep but a good story.

Hey, thanks, guys - I'd never heard of the Judgment of Paris before. Sounds like a good story indeed.

It's not like i have a ton of movies based on wine that are good stories, but aside from the obvious Sideways, the movie Bottleshock is my 2nd favorite.

Sort of loosly based on wine is A Good Year I found it interesting that the kid received such a good education in wine.

And for a less serious look at wine, we found John Cleese's take on wine refreshing.

I was expecting more from the John Cleese production.

I haven't seen all of the Russell Crowe movie.

In case anyone happens to be around Napa the 14 th - 19th of November, there will be numerous food and wine events going on. I'll be there with a few friends. We have tickets for several of the events. A couple cooking demonstrations with Iron Chefs, a couple classes, wine tasting with pro's... Should be fun. You can see the events and buy tickets at the Flavor Napa web sight. A lot are sold out, but some are still open.
