This weekend I may have indulged in too many different types of wine. Below are some highlights from the week!
The dreaded scale. You know that thing you have in your bathroom that you dread looking at? My guess is you either have it hidden away or you are obsessively weighing yourself daily. I have been on both ends of the spectrum.
When it is beautiful outside and you want to enjoy the patio weather, how do you decide where to go? Well you need to know the wine deals going on of course. Here is a break down of some popular restaurant wine and deals within Edmonton.
Despite the heat and humidity, some of us ( ME) still love to drink red wine in the summer time. There is no problem with popping your bottle of red in the fridge to chill before serving. It will taste much more bright and refreshing. Watch out for alcohol content, it can hit you really fast in the hot sun. Look for low to medium tannins and light to medium body red wines. Unoaked or lightly oaked wines often are more fruitier and can give you the summer taste you are looking for.
As the summer continues and the temperatures rise, I find my tastes of wine changing. The rich red wines that I am used to drinking taste too overbearing or warm in the summer heat. There is nothing more refreshing on a hot day than a nice glass of chilled wine on the patio.
