This weekend, many of us will be lighting up the BBQ, having virtual long weekend parties with friends and family and hopefully. if the snow stays away, sitting out on the dock and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. In our current situation, this long weekend doesn’t really feel like a long weekend, maybe you’ll have less emails to read, and let’s all pray the sun comes out to welcome us.
Typically our May long weekends are filled with sunsets, wine filled glasses, delicious meals, fireside chats and sleeping in (or not sleeping at all!). Currently, you can pre-order your wines at the LCBO and pick it up which makes it a lot easier to get wine than waiting in line and going to the store.
This time of year is also a great time to support your local wineries and fill up your cellars with many wineries offering discounts on or free delivery. Two Sisters is currently also offering 10% off any online ordering and they have some wonderful wines for you to order and try! Vineland Estates has created their white, Rosé and red ‘Game Changer’ wine lineup, which are created by their cutting edge optical sorter (it sorts individual berries by ripeness ensuring perfect fruit flavour) and these wines also give back a portion of proceeds to community charities while honouring our quiet community heroes. Looking for a new region to try? Washington State also has some exquisite wines for you to open up and try. How about a limited release exclusive wine? Boschendal just released their 1865 Pinotage from South Africa and Stel and Mar from California also have a newly released white and red wine in cans for easy, well, everything.
Cheers to happy Sipping! Feel free to DM or share on IG all the items you’re sipping this weekend!
