  • Where can I buy Niagara Grape wine? I live in California. My mom and I love this, but can't find it anywhere. The last time we had it was from Widmer Winery. Thanks.

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now.

  • I received a nice bottle of Ice Wine from a friend. Although I understand it goes well with fruit and desserts how do I drink this wine?Is there a way to prepare myself with food, wine temperature or do I just open it and sip it?I have never tasted this wine and don't know what to expect other than it's sweet like Sauternes.

And it comes in all kinds of styles from super dry to extremely sweet.Funny thing is, you could probably do many wines in dry and ... Read More
