#inmyglass tonight is the 2014  #chateaulamondette from #castillon #cotesdebordeaux which I received in my February pack from @marquiswineclub. Very timely since all my studies this week and part of next week are on #bordeaux! Nothing super complex, but well made and very pleasant drinking. I would buy it again. . . #wsetdiplomastudent #unit3 #lightwinesoftheworld #somuchtolearn #alwaysstudying #alwaystasting #wset

I tasted some fabulous wines while I was in London last week for WSET diploma exams. This is a small sample of the highlights. In the photo of the glasses, the darker wine was the ultimate winner - a 20 year old Palo Cortado. Certainly missing from this line up is a glass of I Think Manzanilla from my new obsession #equiponavazos.

#latergram post of the latest blind tasting lineup with the society of stained teeth peeps. This was a particularly humbling tasting, but happy to be able to say I have now tasted a Mauzac from Limoux and a weirdly delicious oxidize verdelho! . . . . #blindwinetasting #frenchwines #frenchwhites #winelife #alwayslearning #alwaystasting #stainedteeth #fortheloveoffrance #champagne #bordeaux #cotesdurhone #muscadet #loirevalley #languedoc #limoux

It's all about #sherry here at @sack_bar. Started off with a flight of #enrama sherries. . . #wsetdiplomastudent #alwaystasting #sherrygeek #londonvisit
So this is perhaps my year of @michelinguide dining? 1 star in December and now 2 stars! However, this one was far more affordable. Stopping for lunch at @bubbledogsuk was a must. . . #wsetdiplomastudent #alwaystasting #champagne #hotdog #gourmet #londonvisit
Incroyable!  A study of Grand and Premier Cru #blancdeblancs @champagnegimonnet along with side by side bottle versus magnum comparisons. Magnums win (duh...) although all the #champagne were so expressive and finessed. #deepchampagne @champagne_officiel #alwaystasting

Always tasting!  President Gordon Fitzpatrick checking out the progress on the 2017 Elusive Pinot Noir 🍷 #fitzwine
Decided to try something a bit different - the @croft_twist! A blend of Fino sherry with elderflower, lemon and mint, in a fizzy, low-alcohol (5.5% abv) format. Slightly off-dry - thought it would be sweeter. Quite pleasant really. . . #wsetdiplomastudent #alwaystasting #aperitif #finosherryinablend #stillpreferstraightsherry
Back at @vagabondwines last night in Battersea, and this time were treated to a portfolio tasting from @divisionwineco from Portland! Such a delicious lineup. My particular favourites were the Chenin Blanc, the two Pinot Noirs, the Cab Franc and the Gamay. Went back for a glass of the Gamay later. Will definitely be looking in to ordering some when I get home. . . #wsetdiplomastudent #alwaystasting #londonvisit #oregonwine #willamettevalley #columbiavalley #urbanwinery #gogamaygo #pinotnoir #chardonnay #cheninblanc #cabernetfranc

First stop of the afternoon/evening - a food and wine tour of the new facilities opened up at the redevelopment of the #batterseapowerstation.

#inmyglass tonight are a couple of sherries that I have put off tasting but figured that I should get them in the "catalogue" of wines in my head before next Tuesday's exam. Both are very commercial examples of blended sherries and while neither of them was awesome, they maybe weren't as bad as I'd feared. I can see how the Bristol Cream could work on ice with a slice of orange. And while I don't mind the Medium style typically, this one's alcohol was a bit unbalalnced. . . #wsetdiplomastudent #alwaystasting #alwaysstudying #tastingisstudying #wset #examcountdown #7days #unit6 #fortifiedwines #unit1 #casestudy #sherry #jerez

#inmyglass tonight is the 2011 @skahavineyard #krazelegz #cakewalk #merlot. Anybody who is not typically a fan of Merlot should really give this one a try as it is truly delicious! I'm really picky when it comes to Merlot.

Pretty nice. For a #friday night. In #ottawa. Quite supple and rich (it was 2015 after all) and slightly less stylish than some of its Grand Cru neighbours. But who's to look a gift horse in the mouth. #greatneighbours #alwaystasting  #vosneromanee

Thanks for the post, @bellovinoj! Yes, our #canadianoak Chardonnay is coming to @LCBO #vintages March 2!  #repost @bellovinoj ・・・ Local talent! Crafted from Niagara grapes πŸ‡, fermented using indigenous yeasts, matured in Ontario oak.  Shows lovely apple, pear, hints of maple 🍁 on a creamy palate, balanced with crisp acidity. Enjoy with scallops, roast poultry or cheddar cheese.  90 pts yummy!  Look πŸ‘€ for it at Vintages in March. #149302 #winelover #winestagram #vino #chardonnay #whitewine #winewednesday #alwaystasting #wineandfood @featherstonewinery @nataliemacleanwine @lcbo 🍁🍁🍁
Three @leaandsandeman favourites (and a fourth favourite courtesy of @derek_wine 🀫😍). @champagnerllegras Cuvée Hommage was bright and clear like a cold but sunny spring day. ✨ 70% 2007, 30% 2009, all Chouilly fruit with just 4g/l dosage. ✨  Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir from the glacial bed of the Rio Negro in Patagonia. 25% used French oak, 75% in cement for 10 months. Vibrant fruit, pretty floral aromatics, beautiful balance. πŸ’  Yannick Amirault - Cab Franc master πŸ™  Les Malgagnes comes from a plot of old organic vines (the oldest dating from 1936). Fermented in oak, this is a serious but sexy Can Franc, with leafy pyrazines balanced with intense berry fruit. πŸ’₯  All in all a very productive and informative tasting... πŸ€“πŸ˜‰

If you have been following me you know there are 3 things I absolutely love... • 1)Wines from Spain... RED wines from Spain (specifically EVERYTHING made by @comandogviticultores ) • 2) ANYTHING made by @paxmahle ... literally... everyπŸ‘πŸΎsingle πŸ‘πŸΎ @paxwines is incredible!! Pictured is the best of the best but I could drink Griffin’s Lair 24/7/365! • 3) White Burgundy... period! You don’t understand all the #chardonnay  grape can be if you have never tasted White Burgundy!! Next time you go out ... ask for it .. then post your testimony ! • If your Friday consist of drinking 3 of the things you enjoy drinking the most, in an environment that is welcoming, relaxed and non-pretentious.... you’ve had a pretty great week! • I am thrilled to introduce more and more people to my wine family @corkbuzzwine ! Thank you @damals1913 for giving me the opportunity to be an ambassador  to you and your friends into the wonderful world of wine!

#inmyglass tonight is the 2010 @FairviewCellars #cabernetfranc, kicking off my last weekend of winter study break. Stay tuned next week for my next step in the wine industry.

Drinking this beauty while making stew and watching the snow fall. Today I received my Case Study Unit 1 Diploma topic. Sherry. The history, the rejuvenation, the wine, the everything there is to know about it. I have one month to learn it all...and remember it. Exam date is March 12 in London. I’ll write my Unit 6 Fortified on the same day. 😬
#cocktailhour Or what else to do on the eve of #snowmageddon2019 ? Tasting with neighbour to see if the dirty #martini (the dirtier the better) is better with #vodka or #gin (but think my gin is too botantical  though the olives are house brined πŸ‘). What do you think #instafollowers? #alwaystasting
My love of food and wine is deeply rooted in my love of cooking. The chef and the winemaker both express their love, passion, creativity and their artistry through food and wine. I do the same. This weekend I had the distinct pleasure of catering my darling cousin’s (@pinknotedesserts )30th Birthday party. She wanted an intimate cocktail party with her closest friend and family followed by a seated dinner. I was more than happy to deliver!πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽ‚ 🍸: The Pink Note- Vodka, pomegranate juice, pomegranate liqueur, ginger syrup , seltzer πŸ§€: Cheese course- Fig Jam, prosciutto, Truffle Tremor, Two Sisters Isabelle Aged Gouda, Mimolette, and Raclette chesse from (@murrayscheese )topped with chopped walnuts and drizzled with ghost chilli honey from @saratoga_teaandhoneyco 🍞: Curry chicken salad with mango salsa on pumpernickel toast πŸ…πŸ₯—: Caprese Salad 🍽: Main Course: Chili glazed pan roasted salmon with whipped potatoes and harricot verts. 🍷 🍾: Riesling-Peter Lauer (@vomboden ), La Cana Albariño , Domaine Girault Sancerre, @comandogviticultores La Bruja de Rozas, @domainedelacote Memorious Pinot Noir and @brownestate 2014 Chaos Theory. • Simply stated...I love great food, I love to cook, I love to eat, I love great wine. I began developing my palate early #alwaystasting, always smelling, always following my grandmother and mom around the kitchen.  Honestly, it was my love of creating dishes that evolved into food and wine pairings (still one of my favorite things to do😁), and eventually to my complete immersion into the wonderful word of wine!
