While it would be â€˜coolâ€™ to match local wines with each Olympic sport Iâ€™m not doing it because I didnâ€™t get the contract. Nobody did. Besides itâ€™s probably illegal to mention wine on sports programs. A TV producer once told me that I couldnâ€™t be shown pouring or drinking the wine I was discussing on his program. Perhaps they should edit athletes doing risky somersaults or traveling at speeds in excess of 20 clicks!
As you know Iâ€™m into matching wine with mood/situation so this and future Olympic picks is based on how youâ€™re feeling or what youâ€™re eating.
Eating a burger while watching hockey, curling or scantily clad skaters? Several glasses of Henryâ€™s Baco Noir will put you in a relaxed, quietly confident mood. Baco is the under dog red â€“ very Canadian.
