Anyone who travels around the province will know how much Ontarions love Pelee Island’s easy-drinking, everyday priced wines. City slick drinkers, however, usually ignore Pelee in favour of boutique, award winning wineries. All fine by me, but every now and then Pelee produces a wine that should interest the City folks – such as their ‘Alvar’ Pinot Noir. It has Pinot’s appealing strawberry fruitiness and the friendly charm of people you love to have at your parties. The ones you depend on to spread happy vibes. Pelee’s Pinot will do that. And just like most Pinots, it partner’s well with almost all foods, and people – city or country types! Lightly chill of course.
