Fantastic wine & BBQ pairings @briarsresort last night. Good times on Lake Simcoe

Passing the mike to Proprietor Hugh Sibbald. I’d just described the latest wine and food pairing, and then Hugh told one of his many informative, historical, and humorous stories of the evening. We featured Viewpointe pinot grigio barrel fermented chardonnay, big bluff red wine blends, and auxerrois. The grilled salmon, halibut, Ontario lamb, and other fine foods were beautifully prepared by chefs Trevor and Matt. Good times! The next event will be Italian wines with beautifully prepared Italian cuisine and hosted by myself and Zoltan Szabo. Hope you can join us…
