Fall Favourites

This year those of us north of the equator will celebrate the autumnal equinox on Thursday September 22nd. Also known as the first day of fall, this time of year usually signals a change in weather and ultimately the temperature. As the days get shorter and sweaters come out of the back of the closet our food and alcohol choices often change as well. Please see below for some of our top product knowledge consultant’s fall favourites – including their recommendations for a white wine, a red wine, a beer and a spirit.

International Cabernet Day

Expert Picks

Since 2010 we have celebrated International Cabernet Day each year on the Thursday before Labour Day. As the world’s most planted wine grape Cabernet Sauvignon is known to be high in both acid and tannins, with a full-body – making the best examples very age-worthy. Wines made from this variety have aromas and flavours of black fruits and when aged in oak barrels often exhibit additional flavours of cedar and spice. While most might think that this day is dedicated solely to Cabernet Sauvignon, this variety’s parent – Cabernet Franc – also deserves some love. Try your favourite Cabernet this fall with grilled meats and/or aged hard cheeses high in protein like cheddar, Manchego or Parmigiano.

There is nothing better than a cold beer or crisp glass of rose on a hot day. Once you are done with your aperitif we recommend a fruity cocktail or a lovely glass of red to wash down that perfectly cooked steak. We hope that you enjoy our recommendations!
