Wine of the Week #1513: Lustau Amontillado 

“Every time new sherry (not the Canadian cream variety – get your mind out of the gutter) hits the LCBO, it’s like Christmas for bartenders and Spain-ophiles. This amber amontillado begins life as a fino and is elegantly oxidized as the flor, the protective blanket of yeast that sits on the surface of biologically aged sherry, dies off over the years. Bright and nutty (not to mention a total steal), Los Arcos is made for nibbles like nuts and dried fruit, cheese and cured meats. Serve cool and store in the fridge for up to two weeks.” (Now Magazine – Sarah Parniak)

Winetrader TV #101: Classic Muskoka Summer Recipes at Sherwood Inn

Recently we had the privilege to go behind the scenes at Sherwood Inn with General Manager Esa Paltanen and Executive Chef Everett Bell who walked us through the preparation of 3 of their most popular dishes.
