Wine with Erik

Hey everyone!

Okay so I know I said I would do more than just Canadian wines but I got super excited that I found this in the LCBO this weekend because normally I can only get it from the winery itself. I promise next review will be a different country! For now though at least I picked a different region in Canada! This is from our Prince Edward County in Ontario. Norman Hardie winery grows their grapes on a limestone hill which is perfect for growing cool climate grapes such as Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Riesling, and others. Norman Hardie apprenticed in many cool climate regions with some of the best producers and winemakers of these varieties. In 2003 he planted 12,000 Pinot Noir vines and then in 2004 planted another 3,000 Chardonnay vines as well as 200 Pinot Gris vines. The Calcaire is a blend of 5 white grapes, all bringing the best of each and is a great representation of what Prince Edward County can produce from these cool climate grapes.

The Calcaire is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. The grapes are fermented and aged in stainless steel vats as to not add any other flavours to the wine and preserve the fresh aromatic notes that the grapes offer. On the nose the wine shows lovely notes of lime, passionfruit, white flower, green apple and minerality. The Calcaire is dry with mouth-watering acidity which adds a lovely refreshing feel that brings you back for more. You can enjoy this wine with shellfish or light white fish, or just on its own in the sun!

Thanks so much for reading my review and I hope you enjoyed!

Bruce’s Poetry Corner

In a Darkened Room

The heartbeat of you
Touching caressing in a darkened room
Magical mystical you
Feeding a powerful obsession

Tasting your lips and pressing ever closer
Unbreakable enchantment pleasing you in a darkened room
Longing for every inch of you

Light the candles by the window
Throw caution to the night
The time has come your going in
Magical mesmerizing the grip of my love
Taking you in a darkened room

Longing every night
When we touch again
Memories music to my soul
Feelings of rapture as you make me yours
Feeding my need in a darkened room
Nothing but dawn can curse our souls

The moon so brilliant
Loving us loving each other
Watching us like a welcomed intruder
In a darkened room

The day is so close
You are so close
A spiral of desire as I take you in
Our hearts like pounding drums
Rushings of all the love to be conjured
Only moments before the sun melts away the memories

The Beauty of Cox

It may be a drag to have to stay home, but this amazing prize-winning Drag Queen isn’t letting that stop her. She still has weekly shows every Saturday on her official Instagram. This is my dear friend Sofonda Cox.

Bruce: When did you start doing drag?

Sofonda Cox: I started drag on October 1999…Halloween. It was a dare and a chance to get in for free in a nightclubs huge Halloweed event called ABRACADABRA at RPM aka The Guvernment nightclub. Promoter offered free entry to queens. So why not?

Bruce: Who is your biggest inspiration?

Sofonda Cox:My biggest inspiration is actually not a drag queen. Its Beyonce. I often emulate her.

Bruce: Where can one find you performing?

Sofinda Cox: You can find me performing regularly, weekly at Woody’s Thursday Cabaret, Saturdays Best Ass and Sundays Cabaret as the main resident host. I also do some Thursdays at the Bisha hotel- Mister C nightclub as a disco hostess whenever I get free time. It’s always different performing at different times as times change. This time I love performing a cover of Bon Jovi “Livin’ on a Prayer.”

Bruce: What’s the craziest situation you found yourself in during a performance?

Sofonda Cox: The craziest situation I’ve found myself in while performing was flying over 8,000 people at the Canadian National Exhibition on a harness in 2002 for a mega show I choreographed Unity 2002 Pride.

Bruce: What about love Sofonda?

Sofonda Cox: I do not have a partner this time. My past partners have always supported my career. They always help me out when I am in need.

Bruce: Tell me about your new song!!

Sooner Cox: “Kiss My Aaawww,” my latest track came about while just hanging out with friends. A twist on the phrase “‘Cause I’m a good Christian girl.” Since I’ve been jet setting to LA, Texas, and Vegas quite often I thought I might as well write a song about it. Then “Kiss My Aaawww” was born. A collaboration with Producer James Forrester and beats from DJ Nucci Romero made it happen.

Bruce: My final question for you is this. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Sofonda Cox: In ten years I always see myself living partially in states, maybe winters in L.A. and Toronto in the summer. I also picture myself traveling and performing all over the world.

Instagram @sofondacoxto

Thanks so much Sofonda. Its always great chatting with you. See you on your live broadcast on Saturdays from 1pm to 10pm.
