If you're not familiar with Pearl Morissette in Niagara, ON, you're missing out! Francois Morissette, a Quebec native, had worked at various vineyards in France before coming back to Canada to take a shot at making wine in Ontario - and he's doing extremely well. The wines are "straight, balanced, oxidative, and natural." But get better with time after they have been opened. Read more about Pearl Morissette here: http://bit.ly/21eEPbG.

What does it take to make the best Icewine? The standard is that once it is -8 C, the frozen grapes can start being harvested. But what this award winning winery does is pick at -10 or -12 C. The colder temperature allows the grapes to hold longer when pressing which can take around 10 hours. Read more about the process here: http://bit.ly/1S3hWl2.

Don't own a fancy wine fridge or cellar? Not sure which wines could improve by laying down for a couple of years? Well good news is you do not necessarily need a fancy wine fridge or cellar. All you need is a simple wine rack placed away from a direct heat source and sunlight. And a wine can improve if there is sufficient fruit concentration relative to its alcohol - it is really all about balance! Learn more about aging here: http://on.thestar.com/1QwY7I0.

Remember Watson, the computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language? If that didn't ring a bell, you may remember it competed on Jeopardy against Ken Jennings and won. Well now it looks like IBM's Watson is learning to become a master winemaker!

If you didn't know, Chardonnay used to be known by many names, but now it is pretty well known worldwide as Chardonnay. Not only is it popular because it is easy to pronounce, but its ability to express the terroir of the region it's grown in is incredible. You'll often find a Chard from one region is not the same as one from another. Read more about Chardonnay's nuances here: http://bit.ly/1OibLr2.

Ever wondered what a Champagne "diamond" or "star" is? It is a tool used to help you remove the mushroom-shaped cork from a bottle of sparkling wine! It's claw-like grip can assist in those situations where the wine has been standing upright in the dry condition of a fridge for months or if the cork has dessicated.

New year, new wines. Try some new grapes this year and go outside your comfort zone. Instead of picking up your favourite Chardonnay, try reaching for Verdejo. Or sub in that bottle of Pinot Noir for a fruity and peppery Gamay! ;) http://bit.ly/1PrpywD
