Greetings Bryan,

I will check out the wines and wineries that you mentioned in your 2008 review. Niagara and benchlands are great places to visit and see what's going on. Keep an eye out for Eddie G. Who knows. Now that he has once again planted a few acres of grapes maybe he'll make wine again as an amature.

A couple of things that struck me about the wines that I have been tasting in Niagara et environs, is the strength of the 2006 reds, and the improving quality of Viognier. Maybe 2007 was a good year for this variety in Ontario, but the 2007 from JP at Peninsula Ridge is very charming and especially at under $14 a bottle. His 2006 Reserve is cut from a very different cloth with richly styled and well integrated oak from a terrific white wine vintage. The Fielding wine is up there in price at $30 but the wine has weight and personality. Well worth it to those of us who are fans of the real deal.

All the best for 2009!
Bob Madill
