Malbec World Day 2021


On April 17th, join in on Malbec World Day by strapping on your gaucho gear, firing up the grill and pouring a favourite Malbec.

Valentine's Day 2021

For many folks, there's not much to celebrate on Valentine's Day, but you don't need a boatload of romance to make the evening special. Some fantastic cheese, a bottle of wine, Netflix... Celebrate yourself!
But a special dinner home cooked or by delivery is also a fantastic idea if you're not able to visit a restaurant with a significant other.
In my house, we're staying home, cheese will definitely be on the menu, and likely some bubbly, rose, or bubbly rose!

Budget Bottles 2021



We're all in need of some good value wines, weekday wines that we're happy to crack open and sip while watching Netflix.
So stock up, here are 60+ wines under $17 that will surely satisfy.

WineDiva: 15 Years Later

In early 2004, after sharing a couple of bottles of wine (of course), I declared I wanted to start a website.
I had never heard of a blog, and my knowledge of the internet was limited to accessing my email--even doing that I often needed help.
I would call the site, WineDiva.

So much has happened over the past 15 years since I made that decision and I cannot imagine my life differently. Along the way I've had great support from the industry and count myself blessed, not only for my career, but the people around the world, whom I've shared a glass of wine with (or more) since.

Here are 15 wines I celebrate, they are not necessarily the top scoring wines I've tasted in the past year (although I've scored them all impressively), but wines I want to drink more of.

TOP 100 Wines of 2018


Each year for a decade, I've been compiling a list of the best 100 wines, under $20 (price varies by retailer), that I have reviewed during that calendar year.
The wines must score 89 points or higher on my sister site, WineScores.ca.
While the task hasn't gotten easier, I've managed to work with a system to make compilation easier. During the past decade, I've become busier in my career, writing for a number of wonderful publications, which hold my attention, ergo, my own site lags behind.
However, even though it is a couple weeks later than usual, I promised to get this list up in time for your holiday shin-digs and gatherings.

Happy Holidays all!
Cheers, Daenna

Get Grillin'


Although we can grill all year round, there's no time like the summertime!

Just the smell of smoke and barbecue sauce gets your mouth watering...
But what about the wine?
Grilling imparts charry, smoky flavours and intensifies flavours in a way that other cooking methods cannot.
You can throw pizza on the grill, sausage, pork, chicken, fish, corn on the cob and skewers of veggies (aka shish kebobs). All of these will have a new depth of flavour that calls for heartier wines, which will stand up to bold new flavours.
You don't have to be a meat eater to enjoy grilled foods, but your wines still need to have a bit more oomph.
Most of the following wines are great with grilled meat, but don't discount what a little grilling can do to eggplant, mushrooms or yes, even tofu and veggie burgers and dogs.
Remember red is not the only grillin' wine Chardonnay loves grilled lobster in butter, grilled chicken, grilled cornbread and corn on the cob...
Viognier charms sweet crab and seafood (great topped with spicy peach or mango salsas), grilled squash or sweet potatoes with sage butter...
Rose will rock pork, salmon, grilled portobello mushroom burgers, or your homemade grilled pizza...
