Favourite grape or wine region?

Chardonnay, I suppose.

Are you a dog or cat person? Or maybe neither. Maybe you have birds or turtles or an ant farm?

Love cats. I have 2 dogs.

Anything else you want to add?

I have an incredible wife and we are gifted with two children that we couldn’t be more proud of. The three of them keep my heart full.

Jason MacLeod's Picks

Astrological Sign: Aquarius

Birthday month, yea! We Aquarians are apparently paired best with Chablis and Petit Verdot of which I’m happy to find myself in this company.    

Thought to be the most idealistic of people, we generally want what’s best for society and are progressive thinkers which leads me to recommending the 2019 Chateau Angludet of which Petit Verdot makes up a portion of the blend – imparting richness and colour. 

Chateau Angludet have been stewards of the land by incorporating biodynamic farming practices in their vineyard.  10 years ago environmental issues were not in the forefront of a lot of winemakers in Bordeaux, let alone at the turn of the century.  As we have witnessed these past couple of vintages, the devastating heat that Europe, and in particular, Bordeaux, has experienced, we are likely to count Chateau Angludet as pioneers of the left bank very soon if not already.
