Want to know how East & Main Bistro came to be? Kimberly and David tell all in a recent interview for “Build A New Life”. Click here for the full article. Learn how a broken ankle led to the discovery of a bulk food store / café that would evolve into one of the best restaurants […]
We are all familiar with red and white wines — along with rosé wines in the balmy summer months. Some of us may even be familiar with “vin jaune” that is produced in the Jura region of France, and is similar to a fino sherry (but without sherry’s usual alcohol fortification). But are you […]
We should give a major shout-out to the County wines that participated in the “Judgment of Kingston” — with special congratulations to Rosehall Run (Gold) and Closson Chase (Silver) for their award-winning Chardonnays. The last similar upset occurred forty years ago, when the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay was chosen best at the “Judgment of Paris” […]
… 2008 Grange Barrel-Fermented Chardonnay … is a delight to the eye, with nose that is a riot of roasted filberts, a palate that enjoys layers of baked Alaska and Meyer lemon, with a finish of crème brûlée, and an acidity that is prevalent and cleansing. There are only 120 cases of this wine available, and they will be well sought after.
… Karlo Estates Pinot Noir … The first thing that draws you in is the washed ruby colour, dissipating to a pale shadow on the rim. The nose is an intense wild raspberry, caressed with a hint of mace. The first sip offers layered flavours of mouth-pleasing cherry, raspberry with Trinitario chocolate and nutmeg on the finish.
I must pay tribute to Huff Estates, and their well-deserved recognition at the National Wine Awards of Canada that took place in Vancouver. They received a gold medal for their 2014 Pinot Noir and a silver medal for their 2014 South Bay Chardonnay. In fact, they were awarded four medals, as were the entries from Rosehall Run. The results speak volumes as to the quality of our local wines, and the dedication of the owners and winemakers.

Their idea: provide luxury comfort food, but use fresh local ingredients with perfect service that never intrudes upon the camaraderie of good friends. Wellington offered the natural intersection for wine, produce and country casual.
