Wedding Episode. Plus, other stuff



The Dork Uncorked, Rod Philips, gives tips form planning the drinks at a wedding, including what kinds of beer and wine to pick and how to handle the cocktails. And, since it fits into the wedding theme, we follow up with Ryan’s anniversary picnic and the wine that went with it.

Wine and drinks discussed:

•”Single Vineyard Viento Mar Block 21″ Pinot Noir from Cono Sur (as discussed last week).
•Sheringham Distillery Seaside gin

And two picks of the week:

•Pippins Apple Cider from Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse
•Villa Teresa Organic Prosecco


Prosecco pairings! And, the big companies behind the lables



0:00 – 22:45: We dive deep into prosecco! It all started when Ryan made a paella style dish for dinner and didn’t know what wine to pair with it. Rod’s suggestion was prosecco. We discuss why and learn more about the Italian sparking wine.

22:45 – 34:50: There are three giant companies in Canada behind the plethora of “Cellared In Canada” wine labels you see on store shelves. We peel back the curtain and examine who owns what.

34:50 – 43:52: Pick of the week! Casal Garcia Rosé from Vinho Verde Portugal. Also, we revisit a previous pick of the week – the Paul Mas Valmont Rouge red blend from France’s Languedoc region – that is a great wine for a great price but is kind of hard to find right now. We help out.
