On the third day of the Olympics, which is also Valentine’s Day, we raise a glass, in honour of our athletes (and our sweethearts), of Black Prince Winery 2008 Chardonnay Terroir Elite. This wine is completely unique in the Ontario wine industry because, for the first time ever, we have Prince Edward County grapes aged in barrels from The Carriage House Cooperage which is a local cooperage house in Prince Edward County – the only one of its kind. Never before have the grapes and the barrels been so closely linked and the wine they created together is one to be enjoyed over a candlelight dinner or while watching one of many different sports this Sunday. There is Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Biathlon, Luge, Speed Skating, Moguls or Figure Skating to choose from…or even Ice Hockey if you want to watch another country play. There were only 100 cases of this wine produced and, at $29.95 a bottle, these wines are going to fly off their shelves. Available at the winery or through their website - http://www.blackprincewinery.com/index.php?id=15 – to get your hands on this wine before it is all gone.
