You may not know much about the Canadian wine industry, but many exciting developments are afoot there. That is why we took the decision to begin stocking a small range of Canadian wines. We are not alone in having had our interest kindled. In 2007 Jancis Robinson wrote up an extensive tasting of Canadian wines thus: "I am delighted to report that during three days in Toronto in December, supplemented by a few bottles back here in London, I tasted about 70 [Canadian] wines in all, 17 of which I felt were world class wines from any point of view ... It did seem to me as though the best wines were made by quite a small number of superior producers, among them Canada’s highest-profile joint ventures Clos Jordanne (Boisset of Burgundy with the dominant Canadian wine company Vincor, recently acquired by the American Constellation group) and Osoyoos Larose (Vincor with the owners of Bordeaux’s Ch Gruaud Larose)"
