KarenFor those of you who haven’t met me I’m the newest employee at the Wine Sense store in Brandon (but not new to working with Neil aka ‘Nelly’… long story).

In my 1st month I’ve learned that I love the Lime Lager by Barons- it is sooo smooth. I love the Mexican Cervesa styles of beers- I find the wedge of lime you add gives that WOW taste. The Barons Lime Lager that we carry is incredibly smooth “like nectar of the the gods” without having to worry about the lime getting stuck in the bottle. I’m a big fan. 

Up until now my husband has been the head winemaker in our home so I’m now focusing on honing my own winemaking skills. I’m very keen on taking my winemaking skills and knowledge to the high Wine Sense standard. I currently have a Cheeky Monkey Australian Shiraz on the go. My house smells like plums, blackberries, and currents a wonderful bouqet to come home to. I can’t wait until it’s ready for drinking.

I’ve also made the Still Spirits Irish Cream Kit, simply mix and enjoy. It won’t last long at our house as it’s great on it’s own and for flavouring coffee.

I’m having a great time at Wine Sense and am looking forward to meeting all of you and sharing our passion for wine.
