Coming up next on The Wine Ladies audio podcast! Launching Wednesday April 3rd, 2019
Follow us here so you don’t miss it!
We are delving into uncharted territory today with a focus on what is trending big time these days in Canada and the US. It is being touted by many as the biggest disrupter since the end of prohibition! That can only be the legalization of cannabis.
On our up coming podcast ( April 3rd, 2019) we will get the goods on the beverage buzz… de-alcoholised beverages infused with THC! How is this all going to work? What is and will be their availability? What does it mean to the wine and beverage industry with respect to wine and weed and wine and cocktails? Are they complimentary or competitors? (cannabis wine and drinks)
Also on the show today a med-tech company which has developed a unique and enhanced platform on which consumers can enjoy cannabis.
When cannabis became legal in California they knew if anyone was going to make weed wine it would be them. But the problem was cannabis and alcohol cannot be sold under the same roof, or even in the same bottle. So, we came up with a simple solution. We make our wines in Sonoma, remove just the alcohol and replace it with fast-acting THC. Each glass has 10mg of THC, meaning you can enjoy it at a dinner party and still be able to talk to everyone. Removing just the alcohol had a great consequence too. Traditional wines have ~150 calories per glass, and our cannabis wine (without the alcohol) has only 49.

Growing And Going Green Has Arrived. Exploring Cannabis Wine, Cocktails, Edibles and More!
Oh what a night! Everyone won gold March 5th as the inaugural Zonta Celebrates, International Women’s Day (Zonta Club of Oakville) event took place. It was an extraordinary evening of passion and compassion with close to 600 guests in attendance.
March 8th, 2019 is the 108th anniversary of International Women’s Day with events celebrated around the globe.
We were honored to be the emcees for an IWD event, “Zonta Celebrates” in support of the Oakville Hospital Foundation.
Zonta International is a global organization of more than 29,000 members in close to 1,200 Zonta clubs in 63 countries. Since 1919 these ladies, advocates for women’s rights, have been working together to improve the lives of girls and women, for 100 years!
The highlight of the evening was when keynote speaker two-time Olympic Gold Medal Winner.
The fastest women on ice Catriona Le May Doan approached the podium. She spoke of her victories and her challenges both on the ice and off, in her past and in the present. As a woman in sport, was it a level playing field? Here’s what Catriona had to say “It was for me in my sport but in the last seventeen years, the inclusion of women in other sports and teams has made an improvement but still has a way to go”. And for us in the world of wine, is there equal opportunity? We personally have seen a greater presence of women in our field. Back in 2002 when we started there were far fewer ladies, fast forward many more female wine makers, viticulturists, sommeliers, marketing executives and writers are populating the business. Plus…. do women have better palates? Ah, the $64,000 question!
Speaking of wine, over to the Wine Wall, what a fabulous collection of wines, wine baskets, and wine related accessories all auctioned off to the highest bid in our silent auction. A big thanks to the many sponsors and private individuals for their generous donations!

She is Marilisa Allegrini, CEO of Allegrini, one of the most respected and highly acclaimed wineries of Italy. It is located in the storied wine growing region of Valpolicella. Allegrini is world-renowned in particular for their exceptional production of the iconic wine Amarone. She is known as the “Voice of Amarone” and been often described as a “Wine Star”.

We had the opportunity to meet with the dynamic CEO of what today is regarded as one of the leading producers not only in this region but also in Italy as a whole.
We asked Marilisa to share with us the story behind Allegrini.
We learn that the Allegrini family has been involved with grape growing and winemaking since the 1500’s handing down grape growing and winemaking traditions over six generations.
Its roots lie in a small village Fumane de Valpolicella located just north of Verona. The family played a prominent role in the local community as one of the most important landowners, involved in agricultural work and upholding local traditions. “It was’, as she goes on to explain with great admiration, ”
how the intelligence and hard work of her father Giovanni an instinctive man with respect to the land and innovative winemaking practices was integral in earning the reputation Allegrini enjoys today”.

Chocolate and wine! The ideal couple. Start a love affair this Valentine's Day!
So for my wine pick I have selected a stunning wine just released the week in Vintages here in Ontario. It is the Viticcio Morellino di Scansano. I love it so much I already have picked up 8 bottles for my personal cellar. In keeping with the romantic theme during the month of February and Valentine’s Day, this wine is perfect for that. After all, the wine hails from the romantic region of Tuscany in which Florence is the capital. The beautiful bottle is even appointed with a black lace filagree to complete the romantic look.
This Tuscan beauty of a wine is a blend, made with the finest Sangiovese grapes, 85%, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. It is aged in small French oak barrels for 10-12 months and and in stainless steel for an additional 3-5 months.
Truly a beautiful wine, drinking amazing right now with potential to age for upwards of 5 – 8 years. An intense ruby red colour with seductive aroma of blackberries, and dark cherries, notes of dark chocolate with a velvety texture and good acidity, plenty to please your eyes and your palate! Perfect for Valentines Day and many more to come! Pick up a bottle or even better a few. Enjoy today, cellar a couple and experience and enjoy again as it evolves over time!
