Best of the Breast Celebration

SAVE THE DATE “Bubbles to Boobies” Sept 20th

SAVE THE DATE for the most “Uplifting” 50th Birthday Bash you’ll EVER attend!

Breast implants have come a long way since the first breast augmentation was performed 50 years ago in 1962. Dr. McLean, an innovator and thought leader in the cosmetic surgery industry, is taking this opportunity to educate women about the evolution of breast enhancement since then. He will also address the health concerns and questions many women have regarding breast implants – not only for those women considering breast augmentation but also for those who have had implants for several years. Other experts on hand throughout the evening will discuss subjects related to breast health, such as mammography, hormonal health and body image.

Spark City Media Challenge, our chance at $2000 for our charity.

 

Yesterday The Wine Ladies were part of media and blogger teams from across Toronto, driven by our thirst for victory and our desire to do good. We competed in an adventurous, city-wide scavenger hunt. We were armed with an all new Chevrolet Spark and an iPad. Ours was the hot green colour called Jalapeño. Each team was given tasks to complete unique tasks around the city, using our unique Ipad as a clue giver. The winning team will receive $2,000 for the registered charity of their choice. Our Charity of choice for this event is The Angel Project. We will know if we win on Monday! Keeping our fingers crossed on that one.

Niagara-on-the-Lake, perfect for a second date!

Niagara-on-the Lake turned out to be the perfect venue for my second date, from the food and wine, to the picturesque old town, to the sounds of the music festival, a little shopping and a small dose of history. How could he not be impressed with wine country?

And so he was. It was my turn to come up with a plan for Saturday afternoon  which was to be our second date. Being quite the foodie and wine lover that I learned he was, spending the day in Niagara was a natural. Three wineries, I thought will be ideal, each with a unique focus, a stroll around the old town, quaint but with sophistication, a little window shopping, and a few stops along the way taking in the sounds of the music festival. This would be perfect. He enjoys a good band or quartet, this I know, as he plays a couple of instruments himself… hmmm we could do a duet, I could sing and tickle the ivories, but I digress.

We’ll top off the evening with a stupendous tasting menu over at Peller Estates. http://www.peller.com Celebrity Chef Jason Parsons rocks the kitchen, is a friend and a great guy with a big personality, I’ll have to introduce him.

It’s all come together nicely, the plan is set, just hoping it will be a delightful sunny afternoon!

Saturday afternoon, the sun is shining and we are off, cruising down the highway, the top down and the tunes playing. Niagara-on-the-Lake is 1.5 hours from Toronto, easy drive with easy conversation and anticipation for the day before us.

Our first stop, Konzelmann Winery http://www.konzelmann.ca/ where we are greeted by the General Manger, Jensin Ozkur who personally gives us a tour, so passionate about the winery, the wines and the vineyards. Konzelmann Estate Winery was founded in 1984, although the family has been in the wine business for over 100 years with its origin in Germany, in the town of Uhlbach (not far from Stuttgart) founded in 1893. “This is the only winery in NOTL” Jensin explains “with vineyards on the lake”. The view is spectacular with the vineyards overlooking Lake Ontario, 16 hectares in all, made up of vitis vinifera grapes including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay Gewurztraminer as well as Zweigelt.

Tasty Torrontes in Argentina! The Wine Ladies Pick, Argentina! Amalaya amazes

Although this grape calls Galicia in Northwest Spain its home, many consider Argentina its home away from home, residing there quite heartedly and producing what many feel is one of Argentina’s white grapes with the most potential.

Our pick the Amalaya Torrontes Riesling 2011, from Salta, Argentina selling in Ontario for $10.95.

Big on taste, rich and creamy with a finish that long lingers!  Not exclusively Torrontes, 15% Riesling is in the blend giving it that “zip and zing”, the backbone or acidity that makes it refreshing and even more suitable to enjoy with food.  Aromatic, with notes of peach and ripe melon, even banana, we enjoyed this wine on our deck last weekend with grilled seafood including squid and scallops drenched in citrus and tropical marinade.

Chateau St. Jean Sonoma County Pinot Noir

Chateau St.Jean Sonoma County Pinot Noir rewards the palate!

Chateau St.Jean Sonoma County Pinot Noir

Chateau St.Jean Sonoma County Pinot Noir

We enjoyed the Chateau St.Jean Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2009 with our mixed grilled and mushroom risotto.  It’s lush flavours of cherry and plum with the hint of leather and notes of toasty oak and long lingering finish was a great match for our Chef’s Table a la Georgia’s backyard.

Grapes are sourced from the Russian River Valley and the Carneros district, two cooler wine growing areas ideal for Pinot Noir. At Chateau St. Jean the grapes, thin skinned and finicky, as Pinot Noir is known to be, are treated with kid gloves, handcrafted gently, cold soaked before fermentation for optimal colour and flavour, while during fermentation the skins are pushed back down manually into the fermenting juice.

On a Pinot Noir kick these days, Chateau St. Jean Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2009 is a homerun!
