PnP Featured in Culinaire Magazine!

4 09 2015

Well, after over four years of blogging and nearly 300 posts, it has happened:  I have been photographed going down a slide in a tot lot with a magnum of Riesling for a real life magazine.  Culinaire Magazine, a fantastic monthly publication focused on all parts of Calgary’s thriving food and beverage scene, has a monthly feature on the inside of its back cover called “Open That Bottle”, where a local personality is profiled and discusses a special bottle in their cellar that they’re saving for a specific occasion.  For the September 2015 issue, I was honoured to get the call and share the story of my favourite kind of wine, from my favourite vineyard, that I’m holding for one of my favourite people in the world:  my son Max.  See the story below:

If for some reason the media link above doesn’t work, the online version of the article can be found on the Culinaire website here.  Also in the September issue (it was a good issue!) was a joint article about drinking boldly and dodging the usual suspect grapes that I wrote with YYC Wine’s Adrian Bryksa, which you can read here:

Stuff like this doesn’t happen without people like you taking the time to find and read what I write on here, so I am eternally grateful to everyone who has supported this site.  Never did I think that this little passion project would turn up in a magazine; I can’t wait to see where it goes next.  Thank you!!
