We’ve decided to do a new feature on BlogAboutWine that we’re calling our Friday Favorite. Every week we will pick a winery that we think really has gone above-and-beyond and produced some of the best wine we have ever tasted. This week we are excited to announce the very first winner of our Friday Favorite – Rideau Vineyard.

The photo shown above we took last weekend when we went tasting at Rideau. The reason we have picked this as a Friday Favorite is really two reasons – one, the 2008 Pinot Noir we had at Rideau is truly one of the best wines we’ve ever tasted, period. The second reason is that Cate, who ran our tasting there did an absolutely amazing job and really helped us understand each of their wines and the nuances between them. While we’ve always found people to be quite friendly at wineries, Cate did go above-and-beyond and that’s another reason why we are proud to make Rideau our first Friday Favorite!
You can find-out more about Rideau at their website or their Facebook page. Along with having an excellent Pinot Noir we also bought their Viva Red which is a nice punchy red that we just can’t get enough of!
