Ottawa clue stumps Jeopardy! contestants

Friday night pizza night! The #Canadian @Queylus Merlot-Cab Franc reserve blend, reminiscent of an Old World blend, didn’t pair as well as expected w/ our sausage & goat cheese-balsamic vinegar-apple pizzas. We suggest trying it w/ grilled meat & vegetables.

Friday night pizza night! Went #Portugal w/ the 2011 @quadruswines Douro Reserva. Plenty of dark fruit in the nose & sour fruit on the palate. Though 10 yrs old, you could cellar this red blend for a few more years.

Friday night pizza night! We went 🇦🇺 w/ @WynnsCoonawarra 2014 Cab Sauvignon. A great pairing w/ our sausage and pear-balsamic prosciutto pizzas. The green notes faded w/ the pizzas in favour of bright fruit. Despite its age, you could cellar it for a few years. Aussie, Aussie…

After a hectic week & a successful #SCRI2021 I needed my big girl glass! The 2017 @OrgdeRacWines South African Die Waghuis Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre-Verdelho paired beautifully w/ both of our sweet and savoury pizzas. We would definitely purchase this wine again!
