Wine in Saskatchewan!
Tucked into the shelter of the Cypress Hills is an elegant winery that specializes in fruit wines. My absolute fave was Prairie Cherry likely because I know the researcher who created the hybrid, Dr. Bob Bors. More intense than other sour cherries like the Montmorency grown in the Niagara region of Ontario, his aptly named Carmine Jewel finds its way into beverages and chocolates, preserves and an off dry wine that could go well with spicy Thai-style foods. The other claim to fame that this winery has is great Saskatoon berry pie.
