Speaking of Wine...
 
 
Dear Jamie,

Just Fine Wine's Top 10 of 2009
 
Another year has come and gone and we hope you are enjoying the wine that you have made with us. On the topic of enjoying wine, we thought we'd find out which varietals our clients were enjoying the most. We did some research to find out our best sellers and the results are in. Here are Just Fine Wine's Top 10 of 2009 (in descending order):
 
T10  Estate Series Sonoma Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay (Unwooded)
        Selection Original Shiraz/Zinfandel
        World Vineyard Chilean Merlot
9      Selection Original abernet Sauvignon/Merlot
T7   Selection Merlot
        World Vineyard Italian Pinot Grigio
    Selection International Australian Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre
5      Selection International Australian Shiraz
4      Selection International Australian Cabernet Shiraz
3      Selection International Italian Pinot Grigio
2      Selection Original Luna Rossa
1      Estate Series Napa Valley Stag's Leap District Merlot

How many of the Top 10 have you tasted? Winexpert's product line of top quality wine kits is extensive and it can be a challenge to try them all - particularly if you have found one or two (or five) varietals that you already really enjoy. Our ever-growing
facebook page is always a great starting point to connect with fellow wine lovers and discuss the wines you have made.

The Best of "The Best of the Best"?
This year's lineup was comprised of the most popular of limited editions of the past 20 years. With pre-orders submitted and tallied, one wine stood alone as the number one choice among clients of Just Fine Wine. January's South African Shiraz has proven to be the overwhelming favourite, comprising almost one third of all the Limited Editions ordered through Just Fine Wine this year. That being said, they are all superb!

Need Ideas For Valentine's Day? 
 
We're not very far removed from the Christmas Holidays and if you're like us then you've only just begun to recover! With this in mind we thought we might be able to help out a bit with Valentine's Day right around the corner. We did a bit of searching and found a handful of websites that may give you an idea or two: 
You can also surprise the wine lover in your life with a gift from Just Fine Wine (and hopefully you'll also get to enjoy the end product...a definite win-win situation!). We have traditional paper gift certificates and also offer wine bottle gift certificates. We can customize your Valentine's message on an appropriate label and put it on a confetti filled bottle with a matching shrink cap. It's an extra touch that makes an ordinary gift certificate personal and fun! You have the option to purchase a specified monetary amount (of any denomination) or to start a batch of wine on-premise. Stop in anytime and we'll get you started!

Sparkling Bellini
Featuring New Millennium Sparkling Wine
 
While a glass of bubbly is always fantastic, why not raise your glass and make a toast with a bellini? Bellinis can be made with any sparkling wine and traditionally include peach puree and raspberry puree to give the cocktail it's beautiful blush color. However, an even simpler version can be made with 3 parts chilled sparkling wine to 1 part peach juice and a splash of raspberry juice. The bellini is a perfect way to add some pizazz to a toast whether it be a birthday, anniversary, or new years eve. 
 
Recipe:
 1 cup frozen peaches
1/4 cup peach schnapps
3/4 cup Prosecco or
sparkling white wine
 2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup ice cubes
1 teaspoon raspberry juice
 
Directions:
1. Blend peaches, peach schnapps, sugar, raspberry juice and ice in a blender until smooth. Divide mixture between 2 champagne flutes. Top off each glass with equal parts sparkling wine, very lightly stir to combine and serve. Serves 2.
