Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer our questions.
I'm wondering what your take is on the wines coming out of Ontario currently. Do you feel that the product from the region is able to compete internationally? I'm aware of the reputation of our ice wines, but I'm more interested in hearing your views on other varietals. Is Ontario still very much in its infancy when it comes to wine, can we currently produce gorgeous offerings, or are we a little disillusioned? I get frustrated with the lack of media/expert coverage our vineyards receive, and I'm assuming there must be some reason for it.
Again, I really appreciate your participation in this Q&A.

As far as the other wines, I have mainly tasted big brands that are made and priced for everyday drinking. I don't see why there shouldn't be potential, but I've never visited the region to really know what's what.
I think the BC wines can be world class. I bet Ontario could, too, but I guess I'll just need a road trip to figure that out!
