National Post - Canada Day: What about June 28 as #CanadianWineDay?
National Post - John Szabo’s Vintages Preview for June 8, 2013
Hinterland. Vicky Samaras and Jonas Newman decided to focus on sparkling wine from the start in 2007, and today make an excellent range of traditional (Les Etoiles; Rosé), charmat (Whitecap; Riesling) and ancestral (Gamay Ancestral) method bubbly. Quantities are always limited and wines sell out quickly (the popular Gamay Ancestral sold out with a couple of weeks of release), so it’s imperative to move fast – I’ve already picked up my case. You’ll also find their Whitecap on tap at Barque and Café-Bar-Pasta in Toronto, and the Wellington Gastro pub in Ottawa, the first local wine producer to offer bubbly on tap.

"If you’re looking for exceptional Sparkling wine, go to Hinterland! The dedication and love that Vicki and Jonas have for sparklers shines through in every bottle. They are masters of the traditional method, one visit is all it takes, you will no longer need a celebration to pop a bottle!"
