WHAT DO WINE & HOCKEY HAVE IN COMMON? APPARENTLY, NOT MUCH!

Posted April 17th, 2010 | 0 Comments

I was in Ontario last week, and had a chance to do some wine tasting.  Wayne Gretzky and Dan Akroyd both opened Estate wineries in the Niagara region, and the opportunity arose to judge their attempts at Bordeaux style wines.
Similar vintages were chosen - 2006 / 2007 - for a side by side comparison.   Gretzky should be given a game misconduct.   Serve it on ice or not at all !
Dan Akroyd, on the other hand, should be given a warm applause for his attempt, but certainly not a standing ovation.
I did visit one of my favourite wineries in southern Ontario called Smith & Wilson, a small family owned vineyard , not far from the more famous Pelee Island Vineyards
on Lake Erie.   If you happen to be in the area, be sure and stop in for a wine tasting!   They just focus on wine , not hockey!
Mike Meyers also has a vineyard -- it is on my agenda for my next trip to Ontario.
