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.
