I have been reviewing wines since the year 2009 and was always asked to recommend exceptional wines for excellent price. At first I provided such recommendations at wine sites such as WineAlign and then later at Natalie Maclean. The ‘GrapeSelections’ website/blog started out as a necessity to independently provide family, friends and other wine enthusiasts with selection of wines that I deem of high quality, with some wine related tips as well as with some information that I frequently get asked.

Wine recommendations a.k.a ‘GrapeSelections‘
Since LCBO has a high turnaround and vintage wines sell out fast, I provide an updated list of personally reviewed, readily purchasable wines that I highly recommend.
For some time now, I have been reviewing wines directly from wine agents and since not all great wines make it to LCBO, I list some of those great wines here. These wines are generally of better value than ones from the LCBO, which is more of a reason to try them. If you are interested in their purchase, I can connect you with the agent.
Wineries of Niagara Peninsula
The Wineries of Niagara Peninsula page lists all the wineries in the Niagara region, organized by sub-appellation. My intention is for the reader to gain a perspective about each winery, to see what attractions there are other than wines and to be able to plan a day trip/tour with minimal driving. I am/will be visiting and touring each winery, note the history, the vines, the philosophies behind winemaking and the wine styles, and to of course review and post these on my webpage (GrapeSelections | Wines from Wineries).
In this section, which is the blog part of this webpage, I write about any topics relating to wine. Though these are opinions or experiences, my intent of this section is to share it with the outside world.
Demystifying wine reviewing
It is in my nature to try understanding things (see my Biography) and hence I designed a table for wine reviewing. I explain how I come up with a score and show you this reviewing table that allows me to keep organized without forgetting any details. You can also download this table for yourself. I also compiled a chart where I attempt to tweak out rating/cost = good buy.
