Over Delivers ~ Tinhorn Creek 2014 Gewurztraminer #bcwine

I had a long chat with a fellow veteran of the liquor industry and put me in a nostalgic mood. Back in the late 90’s VQA and BC Wines were still on fringe of wine culture, and most of the brands that we take for granted today were start-ups. This was the…

Over Delivers ~ Chateau Pesquié 2013 Terrasses Rouge

It is amazing what the combination of proper merchandising and the feeling of optimism can do. I was in one of my local shops the other day when I got a call from a potential client. This is a company I have been working on for the last 6 months. Finally…

The Cheese Platter - Show Notes Part 1, Dork UnCorked Radio @charellischeese

I know that this is a little backwards, but you know what, that is just the way this is going to roll. Heather from Charelli’s Cheese Shop & Delicatessen was good enough to drop by with a very impressive cheese platter, designed with Mother’s Day in mind.…

Good Drop - Bolla 2014 Soave #whitewine

We had the folks over for dinner last week and I wanted to provide a wine that is from a road less traveled. We often think of Italy as red wine producer and it would be easy to overlook a lot of their white wines, but that would be a mistake as there is…

Over Delivers ~ Cusumano Nero D'Avola $19, #redwine

I’m a big fan of pro-cycling and one of my favourite races of the year is happening right now; Giro D’Italia. In light of this I tend to lean towards Italian food and Italian wines. The first Italian stages of this year’s Giro D’Italia are down in the…

Today’s show was a bit of surprise. Carol had heard about a Mommy & Me tea at the Pendray (Gastby Mansion) and it triggered memories, so we thought we would invite Jayde Eastbrook to come in and tell us about it. Link to podcast (when available) Segment 1…
