Which brings us to the focus of this week’s show. Coming up on February 17th, we will be hosting our “Open Up Your Heart” Wine Tasting Dinner, fundraiser in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. It’s going to be a fabulous evening featuring 3 incredible winemakers. All there to present their wines and pair with the food, wonderful wines of course, to enjoy, a jazz trio and much more.

It is a cause that we hold dear to our hearts as our Mum passed away in October of 2009 due to stroke. It is our goal to sell as many ticket as we can!

Joining us this week, one of the esteemed winemakers who will be presenting at the event, Dianne Smith, from Green Lane Estate Winery, Niagara’s newest winery. Dianne is committed to putting Green Lane on the map, with her passion for creating wines through biodynamic practices, producing wines with unique flavour profiles.

Some great Christmas gift ideas! The Ravi Wine Refresher We first discovered the RAVI Instant Wine Refresher last summer, which since then has taken up permanent residence in our sub zero! The perfect gadget to have on hand for entertaining impromptu guests or for those days when you simply forgot to bring your Pinot Noir or Grigio to the desired temperature, it can happen! The RAVI chills the wine, not the bottle, one glass at a time. This simple two part contraption fits on the neck of the bottle allows the wine to flow through an internal tube made from stainless steel (used for fermentation tanks), never affecting the taste of the wine or its characteristics, solely the temperature. Before using, place the RAVI in the freezer for 6 hours. When ready to give your wine the perfect chill, assemble the two parts and place it on the bottle. Tip the bottle sharply, and pour. The RAVI can chill up to a full bottle of wine, one glass at a time effectively by controlling the flow of the wine with the air-take valve. Over time the RAVI will thaw, so pour more slowly with each subsequent glass allowing it ample opportunity to reach the ideal temperature for maximum enjoyment. Brilliant, portable and practical! Price: $39.95 CDN and $16.00 shipping + taxes. To purchase Click Here.
