  1. Hi, Mike… great site! Helps a true novice like me make a great choice in wine, particularly when I’m entertaining clients. I look forward to quoting your words of wisdom : )

    It was great to meet you at the Table Talk event. The wine selection software kiosk was impressive. I’ll be back the week of November 8th, for sure. Let me know what would work for you to get together so I can get it in my calendar. Take care. JF

    • Hi John,

      It was great meeting you, this week has been a whirlwind. I will email you this evening as I will certainly look forward to getting together. There is someone I want to introduce you to as well.


    • Donalee,

      Thanks for your great question and here are WineGuyMike’s suggestions; below are my recommendations for the wine types best suited for Thanksgiving Day dinner. the reason these wine types are great is due to their balance of fruit and acid which will bring out all the wonderful flavors in your dinner. As for specific recommendations I will suggest a few wines for you.

      1. Adelsheim Reserve Pinot Noir
      2.Tariquet Chenin Blanc/Chardonnay blend
      3. Domaine De Pouy
      4. newly released Beaujolais
      5. A New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
      6. A California Viognier
      7. Argyle Sparkling Wine

      I hope these are of some help for you Donalee, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you.

    • I’m very interested in Ontario wines as I grew up on the other side of the lake. Let’s get a winery owner from the region that you have a relationship with to be a call in guest on the WineGuyMike Radio Show. This would be a great educational piece on the region that my audiences would love to hear about.


  2. Hi Mike,
    I attended the wine tasting fund raiser last week, for Austyn. Great wines! I wrote down the name of one but haven’t been able to find it locally. Can you point me in the right direction? It was Delas St Espirit Cotes du Rhone Rouge. Thanks!

    • Hi Laura,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the wines at the benefit wine tasting, it was a wonderful evening. The Delas Cotes Du Rhone Saint-Espirit may be available at Liquid Planet or CVS here in Missoula. Thank you for asking Laura, cheers to you.
