Today feels like Spring...it's just around the corner! We all look forward to flinging open our windows and letting in the fresh air. With the warm weather on the way, we anticipate bud break and new welcome growth in the vineyard.

After sixteen years of owning Crush on Niagara Wine Tours, we can sense the eagerness of the warmer temperatures. As soon as February draws to an end, the phones start ringing as flocks of tourists plan their getaway in wine country.

Tis the Season...for bubbly!

Wandering the isles looking for bubbly to celebrate the holiday season can be a daunting task. Champagne (strictly French bubbly) is a wonderful addition to any holiday party, but why not shop for local bubbles? There are so many delicious bubbles made right here in Niagara. Better yet, head out to the wineries on an organized tour and try and buy sparkling wines direct from the people that make them. What better fun? I recommend having a bottle (or two) of bubbles in your fridge at any time of year. Great for celebratory occasions but also for non-occasions

I can't believe it is already fall. We went from a rainy summer, to a hot and dry last few weeks of September. ( I know, I know, summer wasn't long enough). Harvest is becoming the topic of conversation in wine country and harvesting Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes has already begun. Veraison, meaning the ripening of the grapes or the change in colour of the grapes, is setting in and as the berries begin to change colour, growers need to protect their grapes.

I'm sure by now every self-respecting Canadian has fired up their BBQ's, Smokers, Ceramic grills and the like. What better way to enjoy a wonderful summer evening paired with a lovely glass of local libations!? Niagara has wonderful beers, bubbles and wines to chose from so don't be afraid to mix it up and try something new.

Here are some of our fave outdoor grilling wine and food pairings and some new sips that might surprise and delight! Sip, grill and chill! Cheers!
