Thanks everyone who came out the tastings last week. We had such a great time in both cities, and Josh and I, along with Erik from Juice Imports, and Maxim from Vino al Vino are super grateful to everyone who gave us a room and gave us a bit of their day.
Of course though, thanks specifically to Clementine, in Edmonton, and Frenchie, in Calgary, for hosting our stupid faces and letting people taste our wines. It was super fun and all of us can’t wait to do it again.
We should also mention that we took a quick stop on the way over to Alberta to see our other friend Eric at Little Grouse on the Prairie in Saskatoon. If you haven’t been there yet you need to check it out. They just hit their one-year anniversary a few days ago and everyone needs to keep going to make sure they get to many many more.
Eric has been wonderful to us this past year and even though we are super annoying has still gone ahead and bought our wines from time to time.
You can go there and buy the Equis from Domaine L’R in Chinon, a wine from one of our favorite Burgundy producer, Domaine Guillot-Broux, and because they have more than a few Italian dishes on the menu . . . you can grab a bottle of 2014 Colombaia from Dante and Helena Lomazzi. See the picture and grab one while supplies last. These wines are so beautiful and it hurts me how precious little supply we have right now. We will fix that as soon as possible…
