  • Goodbye BC: Chamberton Winery, Fraser Valley, Canada

    … Wayward Wine ends eleven days in Canada, with British Columbia’s oldest winery: Chamberton Estate. Now oldest around here is 1991. But that gets near to 24 years old.

  • Vancouver Visit Leaves for Backyard Vineyards in Fraser Valley

    With one “dry” weather day left in Vancouver, we hike the interior of Stanley Park. We feel like lost hobbits in this endless glade. Dog walkers disappear as we delve deeper. Misty and free of the city’s steel, we find something odd. Four placards declare the historic importance of this landmark: Hollow Tree. Once cars even elephants parked in it.

  • Is writing making a mess of wine?

    Rave Review Wine today is suffocated by an industrial and disproportionate number of writers, critics, reviewers and judges. There are so many voices vying for airtime, filling up virtual white pages with their comments, feelings and dissertations. There are homers and there are curmudgeons. When in balance, both keep the ship afloat, but more often than not the questions begs.

  • Vancouver Visit to Stanley Park, Liberty Distillery, Fish and Chips, BC Liquor Store

    … Wayward Wine continues to search for drinks-related fun in “No Fun City”: Vancouver, BC. Where better to go than downtown’s Signature BC Liquor Store? My wife heads to beer, while I find the BC Wine section. My goal is something more local than Okanagan, which is a five hour drive too far. But even in this urban chic city center, the state-run…

    … Wayward Wine leaves the steely, urban clutches of Vancouver for a trip east along the Fraser River to Fort Langley and Fort Wine Co. After a drenched drive through faded countryside, we arrive in the adorable town of Fort Langley. Then we accidentally drive through it and onto a First Peoples’ reservation. The road turns to gravel and we turn…

  • Du bon Bachelder: Burgundy, Oregon, Niagara

    … Man, “he’s everywhere, he’s everywhere.” In Ontario his Pinot Noir fruit mainly comes from the St. David’s Bench vineyard owned by the Lowrey family. The Chardonnays are drawn from the Wismer Vineyard on the Twenty Mile Bench and the Saunders Vineyard closer to Lake Ontario. In Oregon, the sturdy contrariness of the vines show a marked preference…

All four wines can be enjoyed over the next few years. More familiar to those who drink Spanish wines is the Garnacha grape (a.k.a. Grenache) - the Casa…
