Picks of The Pros Sparkling Wines: Pamela Sanderson

December 30, 2015 § 1 Comment

Pamela is not only an accredited Sommelier, but was the Sommelier at the Empress prior to becoming the General Manager of Cascadia Liquor Stores.  She is indeed an influencer and has a keen palate for value.

Montelvini Prosecco1Montelivini Prosecco ~ $14.99 +tax

I Love this Prosecco for both quality and value, doesn’t hurt that it comes in a nice package.

Nicely balanced, fresh with a hint of tree fruit character make this a staff favourite at Cascadia.

 

Unsworth Charme de LilleUnsworth Charme De L’lle ~ $21.99 +tax

From the Cowichan Valley, delicious Charmat Method sparkling from Unsworth Vineyard.

Our local look alike to a good Prosecco….

 

Cave de lungy RoseCave de Lugny Cremant de Bourgogne Rose ~ $25.35 +tax

Traditional method from Bourgogne, France.  Made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay.

Perfect balance of soft fruit flavours and fresh acidity, total crowd pleaser.

Thanks again to Pamela Anderson of Cascadia.

Cheers

Picks of The Pros: Sparkling Wines

December 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

This week culminates with New Year’s 2016. If you listened to the Dork UnCorked Radio Hour this past week (here is a link to podcast; here is a link to the Show Notes) you would have seen my picks, but I thought it would be cool to see which Sparkling Wines and Champagnes the local pros would pick for themselves.

Over the week you will see posts from Ernest Sargent, Vintage Room Consultant at Everything Wine in Langford, Stacey Brennan, General Manager at Hillside Liquor Store, Pamela Sanderson General Manager at Cascadia Liquor Stores, and Jami Wood of Spinnaker’s James Bay.

I hope you enjoy each selection as I much as I did chatting with each about them.

Cheers

Spring Is In The Air: A Poll

March 10, 2015 § Leave a comment

Hey All;

If you are here on the West Coast you are no doubt enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. For those of you points east, I’m sure you would love to be in a Spring frame of wine… or should I say mind?

It’s been a few months now since I started this blog and given the response, I thought I would ask you all to help improve it. I want to provide reviews of wines in our market that are under $20 and I want them to be fun and useful so if you could take a minute and answer the following questions that would be truly awesome.

 

Where Am I?
