On the second day of the Olympics, we raise a glass, in honour of our athletes, of East Dell Estates 2008 VQA Pinot Grigio. Flavours, and aromas, of honey, pear and green apple, this wine pairs perfectly with seafood dishes and your favourite Olympics sport. Whether that be Women’s Ice Hockey against Slovakia, Ski Jumping, Alpine Skiing, Luge or Speed Skating, raise a glass of this with family and friends on Saturday afternoon or evening and cheer on your favourite athlete or team. An amazing value at $12.95 per bottle, this wine is available at the winery or can be delivered to your home. Contact EastDell Estates at EDretail@eastdell.com or (905) 563-9463.
On a side note, I would like to dedicate this series of blogs to the memory of the Georgian Luger who lost his life yesterday as a result of an accident during a practice run in Whistler. May your spirit and your desire to achieve excellence live on in the souls and memories of your fellow athletes, your family and the children of our future.
