Cheers to #ChardonnayDay! Any Chard fans in the house? 🙋🏻‍♂️ As one of the most diverse grape varietals when it comes to winemaking, how could you not love #Chardonnay in some form?! From the crisp and mineral driven wines of Chablis, to the rich and buttery wines of Napa Valley, to the elegant and complex Blanc de Blancs of Champagne… we love 'em all! Though we’re partial to chard in its sparkling glory 🙊🍾 .
If you love Chardonnay as much as we do, make your ChardonnWAY (see what we did there? 😜) over to @CoolChardonnay, and snag tickets to one of the many events at #i4C18 – an EPIC celebration of cool climate Chardonnay from Ontario and across the world! We can’t wait for this year's event 😍 #ChardDay #VQA #OntarioWine

We’re not exactly mathematicians… but we’re pretty sure #WineWednesday + Warm Weather = Rosé Champagne! 😜🍾👨‍🏫 Who else agrees?! 🙋‍♀️ The @ChampagneTaittinger Prestige Rosé has been one of our favs for many years. Fresh and fruity, yet complex and elegant… it’s all things a rosé Champagne should be! 🌹🥂

Pssst... @hiddenbench released their 2013 Natur this weekend and we couldn't be more excited! 😍
.
Some people say "less is more," and the Hidden Bench 2013 Natur is a perfect example of this, being zero dosage! .
Zero dosage? 💭
.
That means no sugar is added to the finished wine. Many feel this allows a bubbly to more fully express the terroir! In the case of the 2013 Natur, the complex soils and uniqueness of the vintage (being variable, but perfect for sparkling) shines through! 🍾
.
Uh... Terroir? 🤓 .
That's the French term for the complex interplay of soil, vine and culture. Together, these impart a special character to wines which winemakers strive to share with customers (rather than masking it with sugar or other winemaking techniques). Hidden Bench uses only estate grown fruit and is certified organic, showcasing a commitment to thee terroir concept 👌🏽✨
.
And while some people may say "less is more," we say "more is more" when it comes to lees aging. Here we go, another wine term! 🙊 .
Lees aging refers to the amount of time the wine spends on the dead yeast cells (aka the lees). So, this traditional method sparkler benefits from four years on the lees and offers a truly wonderful autolytic character (another wine term to describe the toasty, bready notes we Sparkling Winos know and love)! 😍
.
We didn't anticipate this caption being a trip into a wine text book, but we hope you found it insightful! 🥂
.
Thank you Harald for taking the time to show us the beauty of the 2013 Natur, your full portfolio tasting of beautiful cool climate wines and the winery itself. Check out our Instagram stories for our epic experience with Harald and Hidden Bench!

Exploring @winecountryont with the 2018/19 guide... can you guess what we're looking for? 😉🥂🍾 Luckily, we found the 2013 Natur from @hiddenbench... such a beautiful expression of Ontario sparkling! With over 120 sparkling wines in Ontario, there's so much bubbly to choose from! #GotTheGuide #WineCountry #WineLover #WineBlogger #SparklingWinos #CanadianWine #WeekendVibes #Wine #WineLovers #VQA

What's in your glass on Friday night?! We're going to enjoy some @Fitzwine Brut... a bubbly so good, even our grouch of a cat couldn't resist. After all, the work week is behind us and #whywaittocelebrate! 🥂
.
We knew we loved Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards before we stepped foot in the winery ... as a sparkling focused producer, they are a winery after our hearts! From the fun entry way signs, to the view, to the amazing bubbly, Fitz has go its branding on lock! 😍
.
The Fitz Brut is made using the traditional method from 100% estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, from beautiful Greata Ranch in the Okanagan in British Columbia. The 2014 Brut was barrel fermented with a portion fermented in stainless steel. Aged for 5 months with 24 months resting on the lees... it's a delightful, balanced wine! 🙌🏼
.
Cool climate British Columbia wine speaks to its one-of-a-kind terroir, and Fitz makes traditional method sparkling wine with the patience it deserves.  Oh and if you're in the area, there's also a soft chair on the deck with a nice warm breeze, an undisturbed view of Okanagan Lake, and your name on it. Guaranteed Fitz will put something on ice for you! 😉
