what to serve
For an all-purpose party, we’ll need all-purpose wines, and VQA Ontario blends answer the call. Blending allows the winemaker to use the strengths of several varieties, creating balanced and complex wines. With forward fruit flavours and a range of sweetness, blends pair brilliantly with the menu and deliver universal appeal. Sweet tames heat! For spicy dishes, guests will welcome wine with a touch of sweetness—and the Flat Rock Twisted White VQA (VINTAGES ESSENTIALS
1578, $17.95) delights with balanced light sweetness and vivid fruit flavours. Our red blend is Megalomaniac Pompous Red VQA (LCBO 341610, $15.95), a splendid choice for the Roast Chicken Trio with its juicy berry and spicy flavours. To accompany the Cherry Cheesecake Cookies, liven up a cup of freshly brewed espresso coffee with a measure (⁄ 12 to 34 ⁄ oz) of Heering Cherry Liqueur
(LCBO 227140, $41.45).
