The Top Wines:
Checkmate, Attack Chardonnay

Aged for 18 months in barrels of French oak, this is the perfect wine for women who enjoy the zesty mix of fruit with undertones of wood spice. It’s not a wine for everyday drinking given the price tag, but it has proven to be a great indulgence purchase for those times when all the ladies need to get together to vent and unwind.
Apothic has made some of the most popular wines drunk in Canada, their Apothic Red has become a classic among young Canadian women. Furthermore, Apothic Crush is following suit. The price tag of this sweet red blend doesn’t reflect the quality of the wine, being a very affordable and enjoyable every day option. Apothic crush is frequently touted as having one of the most distinctive tastes, with hints of blackberries. This is the wine of choice for many young Canadian women because it offers a truly satisfying experience for a very reasonable price. Apothic Crush pairs perfectly with sweatpants and Netflix.
Remy Pennier Sauvignon Blanc Touraine Aoc
This white wine from the Loire Valley is extremely affordable. However, it has the qualities and taste of a wine of far more exorbitant value. The citrus and berry flavors strike a subtle balance, being neither too sweet or too bitter. This white wine is somewhat dry, as a result, it pairs nicely with lighter dishes, such as white fish, or chicken and many salads. Together, it’s perfect for those guilt-free meals with the girls. This true dry white is ideal for dinner parties as the perfect accompaniment for any light meal.

This is a popular wine for those nights you wish to enjoy a heartier meal featuring beef or pork as it pairs excellently. The flavors of the fruit mingle seamlessly with the tannins, giving it both body and refinement. This is another frequent dinner party selection, as it can augment meals well beyond the scope of what other red wines are capable of.
Seven Stones, Standing Rock Meritage
A Canadian wine from the Similkameen Valley, this meritage is created by using two different varieties of grapes in either the white or red categories. This wine is a frequent choice for ladies who prefer a pungent flavor accompanied by the tastes of dark fruits and a subtle cedar smokiness.
