Top 10 ways to enjoy Georgian Hills Vineyards over the Holidays – December 2012 Newsletter

10. Welcome Bubbly!
Welcome your friends and toast in the New Year with a Sparkling Perry! It’s a delicious lightly sparkling low alcohol pear wine, only 6.5% alcohol. Goes well with almost anything, light nibbles, sushi, potato chips, cheese and even dessert! See the bottom of our newsletter for a delicious recipe using Sparkling Perry!

9. Wine and Chocolate for the one you love
We have been in cahoots with Heli at Heavenly Sweets in Collingwood to create three chocolate barks that will pair well with our three dessert wines. Packed in a beautiful bag with ribbon, you can choose any of our sweet wine combinations for that perfect gift.

8. Gift Certificates are the ideal stocking stuffer
Whatever the value, a Georgian Hills Vineyards gift certificate makes for a fun visit to the winery tasting room where you can redeem the gift certificate to purchase your favourite wines.

7. Maréchal Foch 2011 now released!
Just in time for those “Foch Enthusiasts” looking to treat themselves to a glass over the holidays. Our winemaker Lindsay Puddicombe recommends six more months cellaring to allow the wine time to develop more character; however there is some really nice fruit, spice and tannins already showing.

6. Baco Noir new product release!
The 2011 vintage is our first release of this classic cool climate varietal wine, a lighter fruitier style red wine with good vibrant acidity, a fun quaffer to go well with pasta, pizza, ribs or burgers. A little more time and this wine will show really well in the coming months.

5. FREE 6 Bottle Tote Bag
Free with any six bottle purchase or more! Until New Years Eve, we are including this sturdy 6 bottle carrier with your purchase. This is the perfect gift with wine or use it for your own personal organiser to carry wine when you are out visiting family and friends over the holidays. Also available individually for purchase.

4. Vineyard Snow Shoeing
Bring your snowshoes and enjoy a healthy trek around the vineyards. Take in the beauty of our vines in the winter surrounded by the escarpment in the heart of Beaver Valley. Check in at the winery, during business hours and pick up your trail map.

3. Après Ski ….say Cheese Tray!
At $15 per person, enjoy a welcome bubbly plus a sampling of three wines and three cheeses. You can drop buy any time. Just give us 5 minutes to prepare your tray, snuggle up to the fire place or take a seat round the kitchen table, enjoy our home in the vineyards.

** RECIPE REVEALED***
Last summer we had the pleasure of welcoming the TV show producers of Bouffe et Cavale in Quebec to come to the winery to film one of their Ontario travel series, this time it was cooking with Georgian Hills wines. The outcome was amazing Chef Vincent Chatigny created a lobster dish which included our GHV Perry in the sauce. The lobster was simply delicious! See below for the recipe and photo.
