Living in the wonderful city of Calgary, I’m so lucky to be a day’s drive away from the many, many wineries that BC has to offer! My parents spend most of their summers out there and I’m often on their doorstep for a visit during July and August. This means that I spend far too much time tasting and buying local delights when I’m on holiday.
One of my newest favourites is the 2016 Dolcetto ($23 + tax) from Moon Curser wines, located on Hwy 3 in Osoyoos. I had popped in to restock my supply of their Syrah (a go-to wine for me – easy to polish off the bottle!) and decided to sample a few of their other varietals. The Dolcetto is a very easy drinking red and they served it slightly chilled. I could so easily picture myself on the patio or beach with a glass of this in my hand. I’ve never been one to deny myself a glass of any type of red during warm weather, but if you have doubts, this is the bottle to change your mind! There is a nice fruity taste without unnecessary sweetness. The label is even beautiful – black and white, with hints of gold, so it would also make a great hostess gift. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, so if you find yourself in the area, be sure to stop by!
