"South of the border...down Canada way!!!"

Tomorrow and Saturday I'll be driving to Windsor, Canada to judge a Canadian wine competition. I'm very curious to see what the different provinces have to offer. I'm expecting a lot of fruit wines. Most of the Canadian wines I've tasted have been better than the Michigan wines I've tasted. So hopefully I'll be in for some luck. This begins "shit week". I'm going to be insanely busy with work until the 22nd. I don't know if I'll be posting much. I don't remember the last time I've been to Canada during daylight. I have to be in Windsor at 8:30AM. That sucks! I don't know how the border traffic has been lately so I'll have to get up at 6:00 or so. Oy!


Random poll- Should I take the bridge or the tunnel? (I normally prefer to take the bridge, but I don't know which gets more backed up that early in the morning).

I've been meaning to ask who sponsers the winetastings. I suppose this shows some sort of wine ignorance, but you already knew I was wine-inept.

Tastings for the trade are sponsered by our distributors. Tastings for the public are sponsored by any restaurant/retail establisment/whatever. Many tastings are charity sponsored as well. Wine competitions are generally sponsored by various wine organizations (in Michigan). The competition that I'm taking part of in Canada is government sponsored (I believe). In Canada beer/wine/liquor are handled and sold by provincial stores. That's it for today's lesson...

Take the bridge unless your tasting is right in downtown Windsor...the bridge dumps you off on Huron-Church and you can double back and catch Wyandotte into the city, passing the University and Little Asia on the way. Or you can go out Huron-Church to Tecumseh and hang a left and follow that towards Oullette and downtown. Have fun!
