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

Holiday Movie Pairing: The Holiday

One of my favorite traditions is curling up to watch The Holiday with my mother. To us, there is nothing that says “Christmas vibes” more than Kate Winslet’s cozy countryside cottage or 2006 Jude Law… and what better to pair with this beloved movie than my mother’s beloved Chablis? 

Toeing the line between crisp and flavourful, this 2021 Chablis is made from 100% French chardonnay grapes and sees only stainless steel tanks during fermentation. Malolactic fermentation balances the acidity and adds depth to the palate. On the nose: white florality with a hint of citrus! On the palate: ripe, juicy green pear with another hint of lemony citrus to keep things even keeled and delicious.
