Wining about ourselves

I’m Bonnie!


I have been exploring the world of wine for a number of years now (maybe 10) after deciding that I needed to really try it before completely dismissing it. So I started a wine club. Then I wrote wine articles for a local paper. Then I just drank it….

Then I decided to blog about it! So here I am. This blog is about wine, about wine in British Columbia and about wine in Kamloops, BC. That’s where I live. So I blog about what I can get and what I know. I also blog about what I don’t know and how I go about finding it out.

The blog is now four years old and with over 15,000 views and about a dozen visitors a day I have felt the need to up my game and explore even more about wine! Reviews are searched daily and google has become the largest referrer by far! It’s been great fun learning and meeting people and interacting with other wine explorers around the province, the country and the world!

Sometimes I go to a winery and sometimes I have my winey friends over. I order wine when out and about and I go to festivals and events to experience wine. I’ll tell you all about it here and leave it up to you to decide if we have similar tastes or not.

After many years of exploring wine I have decided that I do like it. Now I just need to find out more about and have fun while doing it! Welcome!

ps – You can find extra columns in the Kamloops newspaper at The column appears every two weeks and contains articles not posted on the blog, however, we’ll post the reviews here… since that’s just need to know info!

pps – You used to be able to read about even more wine antics and opinions in my weekly column in The Daily News Food section on Fridays, too! Check it out here for archived articles…

    Hey Bonnie: This is a message from Marg, my wife, from Ceista Estate Winery. Wonderful article and such great exposure – sure helps when we are so distant from a large centre. Thank you so much for the article – well written.

    I’d like to invite you to participate in a new challenge that I am hosting at to bring together the beer, wine, and food blogging worlds. As you may know, each month I host a Beer Versus Wine Pairing Challenge inviting readers to suggestion their perfect pairing with a monthly dish. I decided to make the challenge even more engaging by turning the challenge into a contest with bragging rights. Each month a dish will be presented. Bloggers have a week to post their perfect pairing and why in the comments section. The following week, I will summarize the comments in a post for a vote. The winner not only earns bragging rights but also the honor of coming up with the following month’s dish.

    Right now the contest will be hosted at Future plans involve a breakout sight and a badge to post back on your blog. I welcome you to join the challenge as it begins today with Beer Battered Fish (
