In late November and early December, Wassail puts a festive spin on any wine tour!As you know, winter can be harsh on vines in the County, and each year we bury them for protection from the elements. Wassail celebrates this. In generations past "merrymakers would travel from house to house singing, feasting and, of course, quenching their thirst with local grog."What does all this mean today? Get the Wassail songbook and sing us a tune for a complimentary wine sample. We'll have additional mulled wine to stay warm and festive Christmas cookies — packaged for individual consumption but also ideal for gifting. Best of all, the proceeds will go to charity.To download the songbook, or for more information on events and other participating wineries, please visit: www.princeedwardcountywine.ca/wassail

White wine for white meat? It need not always be.-Over the past couple weeks - and especially so at TASTE last weekend - we've had quite a few people suggest our rosé would be a great food wine for Thanksgiving.-Our 2013 100% Pinot Noir Rosé is quite refreshing in its own right, and has lots of acidity to be a great food wine. It has loads of flavours we associate with the season - berries, honey, etc., all wrapped in a classy, clean-drinking style that, we would go so far to say, poultry and cranberries were made for.-What’s your favourite Thanksgiving food-wine combo? Tweet us @-2013 100% PINOT NOIR ROSÉ-“Pink Champagne”Konrad Ejbich“…Strawberry and raspberry…with loads of acidity…finishes crisp with a lengthy rhubarb and currant note.”Shawn McKormick, Uncorkontario.com“…Medium to fullbodied. Mouth freshening acidity on the finish. A good food wine. 88+Tony Aspler
