The holidays are just around the corner. Are you trying to decide which Thanksgiving 2023 wines to pour? Perhaps you’re looking for a good pairing for your turkey feast or, on the other hand, a special bottle to take to a family dinner or an evening with good friends. If you love red wine, for example, some good bets are Pinot Noir, Syrah and Merlot. But if you prefer whites, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Albariño, and Chardonnay work well. Similarly, Sparkling wines and Rosé are also good options. Above all, there is no right or wrong! Read on for our suggestions.
Here are our favorite wines in 2022 – Part 4. You might recall that in early January we revealed our favorite 20 wines last year. We compiled the list after tasting hundreds of wines in 2022. These 20 wines made a lasting impression. However, at that time, we only published a list of the wines, with links to their wineries. Now we are sharing more details. Read on for Part 4.
We continue to increase our knowledge and excitement about BC wines. Last week, we drove to my hometown Vancouver to attend a Wines of BC tasting, Swirl Around BC. Coming on the heels of our recent, successful Okanagan trip, we looked forward to more BC wines to experience. We were not disappointed. More than 50 wineries poured new releases that showcased the diverse terroir in BC. Our favorite wine of the day: Black Hills 2020 Ipso Facto. Two sparklers also caught our attention: Tinhorn Creek Blanc de Blanc 2018 and Tantalus Blanc de Blanc 2019. Read on for more about these and other BC wines we appreciated.
