Wine & DrinksWelcome to our section on Wine and Drinks! We provide information about Wines and Drinks not only in Canada, but all over the world.

  Canada has been making wine for over 2 centuries now and the wine industry has been expanding rapidly for the last couple of decades. Canada has been challenging worldwide producers and establishing Canada as a wine country beyond Icewine.

At first, wine was brought into Canada with the first settlers. The first wineries were predominantly established by Italian and German immigrants. Today, Canada has over 400 wineries in 9 provinces and the industry has been consistently growing for the last two decades. In 2002/2003 alone, sales of Canadian red wine rose over 15% the previous years.

We are here to provide you with all the information about wine, wineries, vineyards and much more. We are here to help you to choose wine that suits your taste.

Ordering Wine Made Easy

Ordering Wine Made Easy

When dining out at a nice restaurant, one thing that can truly compliment your dinner is a good wine. For some people ordering a bottle of wine without thinking too long can be a very simple task. For the others, it can be a long and difficult ordeal. However, it might not as difficult as you might think. If you follow several simple rules and ask for a little help choosing a bottle of wine to enjoy with your dinner can be positively easy.

Wine lists in good restaurants can be pages long and if you are a new wine drinker they can be truly overwhelming. If you know in advance the restaurant you are visiting, you can check their wine list on line before you actually get there. Make a little research about the wines which are on the list and make it you chance to impress a group of friends or a date. Another option which can save you from reading the wine list is bringing your own bottle. This is generally allowed. However, it is still a good idea to check in advance. And you still have to know the basic rules of food-wine pairing. It would be unwise to bring a bottle of a full-bodied red wine to the fish and seafood restaurant, because the wine will not compliment the food and the food will spoil the wine experience.

(NC)—As the warmer weather sets in, so does our appetite for lighter fare and an increased energy level. Spring clean your health regime by treating yourself to wholesome lunch options and an active new lifestyle to get yourself back on track for the summer months. Here are three ways to get you started.
1. Re–introduce activity: After months of using the “it's cold out” excuse for not getting your 45 minutes a day, it is time to get back into the swing of things. Using your lunch break in the middle of the day to enjoy a brisk walk is a great way to get moving again.


Enhance your health with freshly grown herbs
(NC)—Did you know that one tablespoon of fresh oregano contains the same amount of antioxidants as a medium sized apple?
We know that antioxidants in our bodies are essential to good health. Many fruits and vegetables provide them, but research shows that fresh oregano is at the top of the list in antioxidant activity. Adding fresh herbs to your diet is an easy way to include significant amounts of antioxidants and increase the health value of a meal without adding extra calories–and you can easily grow them right in your own backyard garden or in containers on your patio or balcony.


Pare down your portions to trim down your waistline
(NC)—We live in a world where “mega, super and grande” sizes have become the norm. Many people use these plus–sized portions to validate their binge–eating habits. Some use over–consumption as a way to comfort emotional distress, others take the “see food” diet approach and always finish what's on their plate.
Here are a few tips I like to follow to ensure I am eating the proper portions.
