Favourite grape or wine region?

South African Cabernet Franc!!

Favorite food? If you could eat one type of food (specific type of food like pizza or something broader like Korean, for example) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

My favourite food ever is hot dogs – toasted bun, mustard & sauerkraut!

If you weren’t selling wine at Bishop’s Cellar, what would you be doing?

Dream job would be either a NASCAR driver or the person who tests new Ben & Jerry ice cream flavours!

Rae Tilley's Picks

This fresh, unoaked French Chardonnay would be my first choice to bring to a Christmas party, either as a host gift or to share! Everyone is familiar with Chardonnay, and this expression of the grape is crisp in a way that will please folks who aren’t partial to a buttery, oaky Chard. The Abstraction drinks like a bite of fresh yellow apple: juicy acidity, fruit forward on the nose and palate, and a mineral finish. 

I would serve this Chardonnay with a variety of appetizers, but a charcuterie board would be ideal. Any selection of cured meats, soft and hard cheeses, and salty olives would highlight the fruity notes in the wine, and balance a bit of the acidity!
