Having covered Wayne Gretzky wines in my last entry, today there's news that Mike Weir's wine affiliations will be changing soon.In this Saturday's dead-tree edition of the wine column, I tasted the Gretzky, Weir and Greg Norman wines. It appears future Weir wines will be substantially different - as in, possibly coming from the Okanagan Valley instead of the Niagara Peninsula. Weir's current wines are made by Creekside Winery Group, but he and Creekside recently severed ties. Apparently, Weir (currently right in the thick of things at this year's British Open) is looking to set up his own Niagara winery and/or partner with an Okanagan winery while creating a golf course in the BC winemaking region.Anyhow, lots more to come in the next few days, including a book review and my notes from tasting one of wine's best-known and majestic red wines. Hint: it comes from Greg Norman's home country...Apologies for the horrible pun in the title... my pathetic attempt at combining terroir
and Weir. Again, this is why I don't work writing headlines.
