TED’S BBQ RIG

This rig holds upwards of 500 lbs of meat. It’s traditionally used for low and slow, high volume smoking. It is 100% manual. No fancy gadgets, no electronic smoker units in it. It is pure hardwood manpower. Three (3) Napoleon PT450RBI Grills have been added…..MORE

Norman Hardie County Chardonnay Unfiltered 2013, Georgia’s Wine Pick

I truly am a Chardonnay kind of gal. No chance of me being a member of the ABC club. Anything BUT Chardonnay especially when I get a taste of this stunning wine. My wine pick was brought to me by a good friend and fellow wine lover.
From the county, Prince Edward County, this 2013 Norman Hardie County Chardonnay Unfiltered was a knockout. What can I say… not inexpensive, but worth the $39.00 dollars.

The Chardonnay came from 5 different sites, all very close to the winery, with the idea of blending to create a richness, complexity from the various terroir. It reminded me of a great Burgundy but at a bargain price. So alluring on the nose, I love that toasty brioche aroma and then it had a mouth watering beautiful citrus flavor with a hint of mineral… really yummy!

VQA wine regions

Is there a new Ontario wine region we don’t know about? Ask The Wine Ladies.

 Dear Wine Ladies,

My husband and I always try to support our own Ontario wines and discovered recently an Ontario wine that came from an area we had no idea made wine. Most familiar with the Viticultural Areas and Prince Edward County regions we were surprised when a friend brought over a wine from the Oak Ridges Moraine just north of Toronto. Is this a new wine region? Are there others that perhaps just don’t get the attention the well known regions receive?

Dear Cindy,

The landscape for wine grape growing in Ontario is definitely evolving however to date, there are still just the three primary Viticultural Areas or appellations of origin which are the Niagara Peninsula, Lake Erie North Shore and Prince Edward County.


There are several emerging wine regions though of which the Oak Ridges Moraine is one. According to Wine Country Ontario a few of the promising areas include the eastern Erie shore near Long Point. Summer temperatures are slightly warmer than in Niagara. You mentioned just north of Toronto on the Oak Ridges Moraine where in fact several vineyards have already yielded VQA wines.  

Close to Georgian Bay there are also vineyards planted as well. Finally near Prince Edward County in the Northumberland Hills you can also find several vineyards.

Some of the reasons for this expansion into new areas is due to the research being conducted in viticulture, the experience growers are gaining in understanding the “terroir” and also the consumer interest in general.

We have had the pleasure to visit, or are familiar with are Willow Springs Winery producing VQA wines, located in Stouffville. Burning Kiln Winery in Norfolk County with award winning winemaker Andrzej Lipinski at the helm. Finally The Georgian Hills Vineyards that include grapes growing on the hills overlooking Georgian Bay. On Canada Day why not explore the beautiful bounty Ontario has to offer in your wine glass, cheers!
