Stocking the Holiday Cupboard #2

A few general purpose LOCAL WHITES

There is a lot of “˜shop local’ sentiment around this year so don’t be caught with a garage full of Chile. All the following are easy-drinking, crowd-pleasers. I suggest an open bottle of local Chard and Riesling in every fridge for the Holidays. Charmes Aligoté is a must for the “˜something different’ category. (And we love their new label.)


Pelee Island 08 Non Oaked Chardonnay, VQA Ontario 136044 $10.75
Inniskillin 08 ‘Varieteal Series’ Chardonnay
, VQA Ontario 66266 $10.95
Hillebrand 08 “˜Artist Series’ Unoaked Chardonnay
, VQA Niagara 833385 $10.95
Ch. des Charmes 08 Aligoté,
VQA Niagara on the Lake 284950 $13.25
Jackson-Triggs 08 Sauvignon Blanc,
VQA Niagara 58438 $13.75
Vineland Estates 07/08 Semi-dry Riesling, VQA Niagara 232033 $13.95
Cave Spring Cellars 07 Riesling,
VQA Niagara 234583 $14.25
