December… oh December.  The time of year where social calendars (and waistbands?) are stretched to the max.  It’s the most wonderful time of the year with friends and family making more of an effort than usual to get together and celebrate.  I love entertaining guests at our place and I equally love heading out for dinners and parties at friends’ places. This year, I’m taking the pressure off myself when it comes to holiday hosting by pre-stocking our wine fridge with Poplar Grove wines.  We are literally ready for anyone to drop by at any given time, soooo…. come on over! 😉

On top of being ready to host, keeping wine on hand takes the stress off evening plans at someone else’s home too.  As I am sure is the case with many of us, I always bring a bottle of wine for the hosts.  It’s easy and always greatly appreciated.

The one thing you do NOT want to do is bring a bad bottle of wine.  You’ll be drinking it that night or your hosts will open it with you in mind.  Either way, make sure the bottle is something you enjoy personally so that you can guarantee that your hosts will be enjoy it just as much (or more!).  You can’t go wrong with Poplar Grove.

Cheese fondue is easy to whip up and such a treat to serve with the Poplar Grove Collectif 2017.

Sam (The Family Jewels) and I had no fun at all.  We never do.  Ha.

Poplar Grove Winery is located on the slopes of the Naramata Bench, just outside of Penticton, BC. The winery was founded in 1993, and is run by Tony Haller and his family. Their mission is to create wines that reflect the true spirit of the Okanagan Valley.  Poplar Grove focuses on six core wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and a signature blend called the Legacy.

Exciting news!!! The Legacy, Poplar Grove’s 2014 Bordeaux-style red blend just recently won 1st place in the Judgement of B.C. wine competition.  This is one of the wines that is included in the wine club delivery.
