Seventeen Days

The 2010 Olympics are about to start in Vancouver, BC, Canada and what better way to toast our athletes and inspire them on to Gold Medals than to raise a glass of wine – a different one each day – for each of the seventeen days our athletes are competing on the world stage here at home. So, here we go – a new wine for each day of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC…

On the first day of the Olympics, we raise a glass, in honour of our athletes and the Gold medals they are about to win, of The Grange of Prince Edward Brut VQA. A fruity, minerally, slightly creamy blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir made entirely of Prince Edward County fruit and the first VQA bubbly to do so. Caroline Granger, President of The Grange of Prince Edward Vineyards and Estate Winery, tells me that this wine is the result of twenty-six months of hard work, with the second fermentation lasting a full fifty-seven weeks. Only $29.75 a bottle, this bubbly was released back in November so it is best to get your hands on this quickly as they are running short on bottles. Call the wine shop at 613.399.1048 or 866.792.7712 to order this winery or visit them at 990 Closson Road, Hillier ON to grab a few bottles.
