    Breads, Herring, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    This light, easy drinking Pinot possesses aromatic notes of malted chocolate, cherry and licorice. The palate is sprinkled with lively acidity and soft, welcoming tannins. Black cherry and a subtle pepper bring this wine to a pleasant conclusion.

    Pearce Predhomme

    South Africa (South Africa), Stellenbosch (South Africa)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Lard, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "If you are fan of South African reds you will love this; if not you will be a step closer. It's a lively, engaging if idiosyncratic wine offering complexity, diversity and sheer drinkability. The nose is nicely lifted with a melange of wild blueberry, pomegranate fruit plus some meatiness, all kinds of herbality and Cape tar. It is medium bodied (only 12.5%) alcohol with crunchy acidity, a hint of sourness, fine soft tannin. Excellent length. Edgy but it works. Chill lightly."

    Barrel Burner

    California (USA), USA (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Deep, aromas of chocolate, plum, and roasted coffee. 19 days spent on the skins explain the concentration, while one month of aging in French and American oak imparts spice and a plush mouthfeel. There’s quite a lot of flavor packed into this great value red, most notably notes of leather and balsamic that move in stride with ripe cherry and black fruit."

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    The 2018 growing season was experienced many fluctuations in weather throughout all 4 seasons. A late start to spring in May brought warm and windy conditions. Summer saw extreme heatwaves and thunderstorms which brought rain in late August and into harvest. Overall, the 2018 vintage is of good quality with the heat and dry conditions in summer that allowed for good ripening. The Grower’s Blend Cab Franc from this vintage is displays notes of cherries, blueberries, violet and toast. The tannins are firm but well integrated and the finish is long and smooth.

    Cabernet Franc is perfect for grilled meats, charcuterie or your favourite pizza or pasta.

    César Márquez Pérez

    Bierzo (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese


    "The AOC Bierzo 2018 Parajes was produced with grapes from nine different villages of the region, all fermented separately and aged in barrels for one year before being blended together. It's perfumed, clean, elegant and precise, really impressive for an entry-level bottling. The palate is balanced and elegant, fresher and sharper than the 2017, with less alcohol and more acidity. There are now 12,104 bottles of this wine, almost double from the previous year. But the vintage was so good that he also produced more... It is good, elegant, floral and very affordable. It was bottled in December 2019."

    Bodega Akutain

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The 2004 Rioja Gran Reserva from Bodegas Akutain is a lovely the elegant side of Rioja Alta fruit, as it offers up a complex and utterly classic bouquet of plums, raspberries, cigar smoke, an impressively complex base of soil tones, cloves and toasted coconut. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with a great core of fruit, impeccable balance, lovely complexity and a very long, bright and classy finish. Just a great bottle of old school Rioja! 2016-2035+."

  7. New Gigondas Les Racines by Domaine Les Pallières (Vignobles Brunier) 2017

    $449.94

    Domaine Les Pallières

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Aromas of cassis, garrigue and redcurrants and wild raspberries. Grenache drives the palate in a long, linear and very focused style. Dense, but delicate, with a fresh and juicy, raspberry-pastry finish. The vines are 80+ years old. Striking power and focus. Drink or hold."

    Bodegas Castro Ventosa

    Bierzo (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese


    "The 2018 Valtuille Villegas had not been produced since 2015 and there is a big jump in precision and freshness: it's not just three years, it's three years of fine-tuning the work in the vineyards and winery. It fermented in a 3,000-liter oak vat with 100% full clusters and matured in two 225-liter oak barrels and one 500-liter oak barrel. This is perfumed and gravitates more toward Burgundy; it's elegant and long, with "only" 12.8% alcohol. It has very polished tannins and the inherent elegance of the sandy soils. It's perhaps lighter and doesn't have the complexity of the Cepas Centenarias, but it's really impressive. A Villegas of finesse. 1,300 bottles were filled in May 2020."

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best red wine, along with the best red wine to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of red wines. To name some we have, dry red wine, sweet red wine, full bodied red wine, medium bodied red wine, light red wine, tannic red wine and structured red wine. There is a litany of words used to describe red wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of red wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce red wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top red wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular red wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for red wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good red wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best, along with the best values, in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

When it comes to red wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking red wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different red wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your red wine and the taste of your red wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best red wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.
