Wine of the Week Never Disappoints with Food: #WOTW


Five reasons why 13th Street Gamay Noir is your Wine of the Week #WOTW

LCBO Vintages #177824  |   $19.95

Each Friday, #‎Ottawa‬ sommelier Monique Ippolito introduces us to a new wine worth savouring and sharing. Cheers!

1. This wine comes from a very lovely home. Two families with strong roots and commitment to their Niagara community came together many moons ago to share a common love for wine, food and art.  A visit to the 13th Street Winery in St. Catharines will give you just that – stunning wines,  beautiful artwork and an incredible bakery. The buttertarts are legendary!


2. It’s a fine example of cool climate Gamay Noir.  Lovely raspberry, cherry, peppercorn and baking spice notes are revealed with every sip.


3. It’s a light to medium bodied red with a silky smooth and luscious mouthfeel, making it pretty easy drinking.  Easy enough for any night of the week.


4. It never disappoints with food.  I have paired it with everything from tacos, to planked nachos, to burgers, to a grilled juicy rib eye; and I have exciting plans this fall to pair it with some meaty stews.


5. Can you tell how much I favour this wine yet? Simply put, it’s a gem. The value for quality is immeasurable.  I’ll confess, I buy it by the case.
