Pinot Noir is a red wine grape variety that is believed to have originated in the Burgundy region of France. It is now widely grown in many other wine-producing regions around the world, including California, Oregon, New Zealand, and Australia.
Pinot Noir is known for its delicate and complex characteristics, with flavors of red fruits like cherry and strawberry, as well as earthy and sometimes mushroom-like notes. The grape is also known for its thin skin and susceptibility to disease, which can make it a challenging grape to grow and produce high-quality wine from.
Food pairing suggestions for Pinot Noir include dishes that are not too heavy or overpowering, as the wine’s delicate flavors can be easily overwhelmed. Examples include roasted poultry, grilled salmon, and mushroom-based dishes. Pinot Noir can also pair well with cheeses like Brie and Camembert, as well as charcuterie and pâté.
Pinot Noir is often considered a “foodie” wine due to its versatility in terms of pairing with a variety of different dishes. Its light to medium body and bright acidity make it a good match for many cuisines, including French, Italian, and Japanese.

Sauvignon Blanc is a white grape variety that is believed to have originated in the Bordeaux region of France. The grape has since spread to many other wine-producing regions around the world, including New Zealand, California, and South Africa.
Sauvignon Blanc is known for its bright and zesty characteristics, with flavors of green apple, grapefruit, and sometimes tropical fruits like passionfruit. It is also known for its herbaceous and sometimes grassy notes, which can give the wine a unique and refreshing quality.
Food pairing suggestions for Sauvignon Blanc include seafood such as oysters, shrimp, and sushi, as well as salads and light vegetarian dishes. The wine’s bright acidity and citrus notes can help to balance the flavors of these dishes, while its herbaceous qualities can complement their freshness.
Sauvignon Blanc is also known for its versatility in terms of pairing with different cuisines, as it can pair well with everything from Thai and Vietnamese dishes to Mediterranean and South American flavors.
Dear Wine Lovers,
During the month of March, when you purchase any Winexpert Classic, Reserve or On The House wine, will make a $10.00 donation to the Oakville and Milton Humane Society. Your donation will support the care of two very special rescued animals that need our help, Beauty and Shelby (see below). They have been at the shelter for a while and like many others are searching for their forever homes.
In the meantime, they need our support to help cover the cost of their care.
Learn more about the OMHS.
Your support is greatly appreciated. You are totally PAWSOME!

Shelby was found as a stray, so we don’t know anything about her life before coming to us. She is ready to find her forever home!
Shelby is a very sweet cat who is still a little bit scared of life. While she has made a lot of progress while here, and has been so brave, she still has a bit more to go!
Simple things like petting, and picking her up will be a work in progress for Shelby, although we have discovered her one true love! Temptations Creamy Purée! With one of these tasty treats, Shelby will gladly come out of her shell to devour her snack while purring away!
Food will definitely be the way to Shelby’s heart, which will be a great way to earn her trust and love! Once she gets comfortable in her home, she will make sure to let her personality shine!
Shelby is looking for a quiet, adult only home that has lots of patience to show Shelby the world isn’t scary! If she sounds like the purrfect cat for you, please apply for her today!

New Year’s Eve is perhaps the most iconic of drinking holidays. New Year’s Eve brings a particular level of class and sophistication to drinking. This is, of course, largely to do with the signature drink of the holiday: Champagne.
Not everyone has an appreciation for the bubbly French wines, though. Others prefer to toast the end of the year in style with brightly colored bubbly drinks. The New Year’s Sparkler is such a drink; it’s a breeze to make and can be adjusted to individual tastes.
- 1 ounce berry-flavored vodka
- 1 1/2 ounces pomegranate or cranberry juice
- 3 1/2 ounces Champagne, chilled, to top
- Garnish: skewered raspberries
Add the vodka and pomegranate or cranberry juice to a chilled Champagne flute.
Top with the Champagne.
Garnish with raspberries on a long skewer.
Yields: 1 serving
