Judy’s Spring Picks

Oyster Bay Pinot Noir

Oyster Bay Pinot Noir from Marlborough, New Zealand is an elegant cool climate Pinot Noir. Fragrant, soft and flavourful with aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length. This wine is full-bodied, mouth watering, juicy, and smooth.

Oyster Bay Pinot Noir pairs well with a wide range of dishes, such as frittata, veggie mushroom burger, salmon, and especially Easter turkey or ham.

Newcastle Brown Ale

Newcastle Brown Ale is brewed by Heineken in Holland. This reddish brown beer has a strong, fruity and full bodied taste. It has flavours of caramel with notes of banana and dried fruit and a refreshingly bitter finish.

This American-style brown ale has nutty and roasty flavor that makes it ideal for pairing with spring barbeque fare, such as herb marinated pork chops or grilled red meats.


Sortilège is gold in colour with flavours of Canadian Whiskey, Quebec maple syrup and toffee – Our very own northern comfort. Try Sortilège splashed into coffee, dribbled over cake, or served with dessert.
