The Wine-On in Winter

Yes, a horrible pun but I would be “lion” if I didn’t point out my glee at posting such an “O’Toole-ish” piece of humour!!  (vintage 1968) Please stop me!!  The lack of sun in winter is a challenge for my mental well being.  Really???  🙂  Every February we try to do our part in helping our wine club members’ mental well being by presenting our complimentary Education Weekends (EW).  We offer 50 slots over 2 weekends for wine club members and their guests to create their own program of wine and food education.  This past weekend was the 2017 EW opening and it was great to see so many of our extended family and their friends eagerly looking forward to some entertaining seminars.  We provided everything from a tasting of terroir to a study of Port to a delicious Lunch and Learn with Justin.  Working hard in class and “doing your homework” is always a pleasure at the Vineland Estates school.  You really just eat and drink your way to an “A”.  🙂  The second seminar offerings are on the weekend of February 18th and 19th and the schedule can be accessed from our front page.  Contact Catherine if you want to join us with our compliments.  Just say, “David sent me”.  You may even take advantage of the special priced Lunch and Learn with Chef Justin and make your reservations.  I know you are not necessarily a wine club member BUT I do know that after you enjoy our hospitality and experience the wine club advantages, you’ll most likely want to join.  And you will be welcomed with open arms!  See?  There is method in my winter madness!!  🙂

Cheers, David
