Mary's Wine Odyssey is a handpicked selection of the wines our co-founder currently has on her table. While she doesn't have one eternal favorite, the gems featured in this collection all echo her passion for the unexpected and the story behind every bottle.
Be swept away by the compelling narrative of the woman winemaker at Bisquertt, bravely carving a space in a male-dominated industry while producing wines with unparalleled depth and complexity in Chile. Or explore the pioneering spirit of the brothers behind Cave Spring, whose family trail blazed viticulture in the Niagara Peninsula, their wines a testament to their innovative vision. And let's not forget about the Berligou from the Loire Valley in France, a special nod to Mary's husband, whose family has origins near Domaine Poiron-Dabin's winery and vineyards.
This collection mirrors Mary's belief that sublime wines are not confined to a particular region or the wineries of a few. They can emerge from any corner of the world, crafted by anyone with a love for exploration and diving into the unknown.
Richer in tannin and fuller in spice and earth tones than one might expect from other clones of Pinot Noir, this Berligou immediately demonstrates its royal pedigree with an intricate mélange of fresh, violet pastille, and forest floor notes that evoke the crunch of fallen leaves. Complex and long, yet elegant and deceptively inviting, this Berligou is as refreshing in the summer as it is comforting underneath a blanket, curled up against the fire.
This Cabernet Franc from Cave Spring proves why so many winegrowers on the Niagara Peninsula rightfully find so much potential for this grape in Ontario. The wine illicits all the classic earthy and floral Cabernet Franc notes—crushed violets, cracked pepper, tobacco leaf—punctuated by generous raspberry and black plum flavors. Framed by suave, velvety tannins and elongated with a bright, dark-fruited acidity, the wine demonstrates length and ageworthiness.
The flagship white blend of the Eger region, this Egri Csillag offers charming and gentle floral aromas of acacia blossom and honeysuckle. The wine continues with ripe orchard fruit flavors—yellow apple skin, cantaloupe, ripe pear, and white peach. Concentrated and complex in its herbaceous thyme and tarragon notes, it shows its aging potential in a piercing acidity that elongates the finish.
A rare pink expression of Moschofilero, this wine combines the seductive jasmine and white rose floral aromatics signature of the grape variety with the crushed, cold strawberry and raspberry flavors enjoyed of dry rosé. Complex and flamboyantly flavorful, the wine delivers that snappy, salty finish that makes it the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer day.
Exuberant and expressive, this Moscatel displays the grape variety’s signature flamboyance, paired with a purity of fruit that is so quintessentially Chilean. The wine opens with an intoxicating boisterous amalgam of floral aromas—white rose, orange blossom, jasmine. It’s equally bold on the palate, with fleshy flavors of grapefruit oil, starfruit, and kiwi, coupled with muskier spice market notes.
The quintessential pizza wine, this Montepulciano tastes of fresh Bing cherries and red plums, along with a more rustic earthiness—dried oregano, underbrush, and subtle cured meat flavor from the Syrah. Charming and medium-bodied, the wine is approachable, but also features a sandy tannic grip that gives it length and ageability.

Cave Spring Vineyard, a pioneer in the wine industry, has spent over four decades honing its reputation for creating wines that truly capture the essence of their vineyards. With a commitment to sustainability and strict industry standards, Cave Spring Vineyard has distinguished itself as a producer of high-quality wines. Led by Len Pennachetti, the co-founder of Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA), Cave Spring has played a crucial role in establishing Niagara Peninsula as a recognized wine region.
With nearly two centuries of winegrowing under their belt, the Poiron-Dabin family’s roots in the Loire Valley run deep. The family’s history as vignerons is documented as early as 1858, though it remains likely that their experience in the area extends back further. The modern winery traces its origins to the marriage of Jean Poiron to Thérèse Dabin in 1962. Jean and Thérèse each retired around the turn of the millennium, passing the baton to their two sons, who continue to steward the estate today.
Regarded as one of the very finest interpreters of Moschofilero in the whole of Greece, Bosinakis has been a family affair since its inception in 1992. The new generation took over in 2009, when brother-sister team Sotiris and Katerina Bosinakis took the reins of the winery. Among their contributions was a renewed and passionate focus on quality. The siblings will also gleefully share a vertical of Moschofilero going back several years, showing that contrary to certain assumptions, Moschofilero has the structure and complexity to age with grace.
In 1997, Cristina Fausti's dream of an organic, modern winery alongside her family’s Marche vineyard gave birth to Fausti. With winemaker Domenico D’Angelo sharing her reverence for the land, they founded the venture. Fausti's home in Fermo, rich with viticultural history, features vineyards beside a medieval tower adorned with the Matteucci family’s coat of arms—a nod to local grape-growing's heritage. Guided by principles of harmony, biodiversity, and nature's influence, Cristina and Domenico continue crafting wines that echo the region's story.
Established in 1978 by the visionary duo of Osvaldo Bisquertt and Soledad Urrutia, Bisquertt Winery stands as a testament to their unwavering dedication and pioneering spirit. The pair's invaluable contributions to the now-renowned Colchagua Valley, particularly their groundbreaking efforts in the Marchigüe subzone, have forever etched their names in the annals of wine history. The Bisquertt family lives the ethos of stewardship, earning the prestigious sustainability credential from the Wines of Chile organization. Their holistic approach encompasses everything from managing wastewater and reducing carbon footprint to fostering fair labor practices and community development.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2023, Tóth Ferenc Winery is a testament to the unwavering passion and dedication of its founders, Tóth Ferenc (affectionately known as Uncle Feri) and his wife. Their journey from ordinary jobs to esteemed winegrowers began in the early 80s, culminating in the establishment of the Áfrika Vineyard. Feri stood at the forefront in the 2000s, advocating for the cultivation of rare grape varieties like Kadarka and Leányka in the Eger region. The next generation, represented by Ferenc’s daughter Katalin and son-in-law Zoltán, joined hands in 2005, helping to extend the winery’s cave system, modernize the tasting room, and increase vineyard holdings in Eger’s prime sites.
