Dear The Wine Ladies, My husband and I regularly enjoy a glass or two of wine with our meals with our favourites usually coming from either Australia or California. We never really got into French wines but just recently attended a tasting featuring a couple of wines from Bordeaux and absolutely loved them!
There was one in particular that we both really enjoyed and was within our budget. The name of the wine was Château Larose Trintaudon, Cru Bourgeois. We purchased a couple of bottles to bring to an up coming dinner party and would like to know a little more about this wine including what Cru Bourgeois means? Perhaps a few words on the region of Bordeaux as well. - Elizabeth
THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Elizabeth,
Welcome to the world of French wines and to one of the most famous wine regions in the world, considered by many to be the greatest region for producing fine wines. Still till today the wines of Bordeaux are also seen as “benchmark” wines for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wines being made around the globe. Here is a little basic information on the region to start. Bordeaux is located in the southwest of France and is actually a very large wine growing region, which produces over 900 million bottles annually. The Gironde River basically divides the region, with the chateaux on the left side referred to as the “Left Bank” producing wines predominantly with the grape Cabernet Sauvignon, and those on the right, or Right Bank with a focus on Merlot. The Château Larose Trintaudon you enjoyed comes from the Left Bank. Bordeaux produces both white and red wines with the majority being red (90%). Unlike the new world wine regions that state the grape, whether a Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet etc… on the label, the wines of Bordeaux do not. Bordeaux wines are typically blends which for the red can include any or all of the following; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, used much less today than in the past. One of the pivotal times in the history of Bordeaux and her wines was the famous 1855 Classification of the wines, a ranking system initiated by Emperor Napoleon the 3rd which still influences today’s market. Of course there are so many incredible Bordeaux wines to explore and enjoy, wines of suburb quality and at great value including the one you mentioned that we too were very impressed with, Château Larose Trintaudon. The origins of this domain go as far back as 1719
but it was in 1817 that the vineyard was first planted on a gravelly hillside with a terroir that proved to be exceptional for the Bordeaux varietals. Today Château Larose Trintaudon is one of the largest vineyards in the Medoc both in size and production and is recognized in the world over as a top quality Cru Bourgeois. The Château was also one of the very first to earn this recognition to be classed as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932 of which the company is very proud. Château Larose Trintaudon also owners of Château Larose Perganson and Arnaud are one of the pioneers in Bordeaux in terms of practicing sustainability and have been credited with the highest evaluation in sustainability and earned the label “Responsible Vineyard” as one of the leaders in France.
Our appreciation and enjoyment of the wines Château Larose Trintaudon and the Perganson has lead us to invite the Winemaker and CEO of the company Franck Bijon, from Bordeaux to join us here and lead a spectacular Winemakers Dinner. We invite you to join us on February 22nd for what will be an incredible fourcourse dinner created by Chopped Canada winner Executive Chef JohnRoss Woodland of Noble Bistro. Featuring these fabulous wines and a quintessentially French pastry the macaron, both sweet and savoury,this will be an evening to remember. For more details visit www.thewineladies.com

MAKE 20I7 THE YEAR YOU
DISCOVER CLARKSON VILLAGE by Lynn Still, Chair of the Clarkson BIA
DID YOU KNOW Clarkson was named after Warren Clarkson, a United Empire Loyalist who, arrived here in 1808 from Albany New York. The Clarkson family operated the general store and post office for many years and their old homestead, built in 1819, still stands on Clarkson Road. Today, people can experience a glimpse of different periods in Clarkson‘s history by visiting the Bradley House, c.1830, The Anchorage, c.1839, or Benares, c.1857, all historic properties operated by Museums of Mississauga.
VILLAGE MERCHANTS Clarkson Village is a mix of businesses in operation for many years as well as newly opened ventures, but one thing they have in common is excellent old fashioned customer service. The oldest structure in the village built around 1827 now houses The Barn Antiques. Originally a vegetable and fruit market, The Barn changed to an antique store in 1918. In 1959, Michael’s Hair Body & Mind opened its doors to provide the community of Clarkson with exemplary hair and beauty services. Over the years, Michael’s has expanded to include a full service day and med spa and traditional Chinese medical centre. The new kid on the block is local celebrity chef Massimo Capra’s Italian Mediterranean restaurant “Capra’s Kitchen”. Open for lunch, brunch and dinner.

GORDON GRAYDON MEMORIAL
SECONDARY SCHOOL February is, once again, active at Graydon. The start of second semester has students assimilating to their new courses and teachers. Sports are back in full swing, with practices and games occurring. The winter season, in athletics, is winding down with the spring season just around the corner. The school’s DECA Team participated in provincials the second week this month. Many students obtained personal bests and are moving on to the international competition. This year, students will travel to Anaheim California the last week in April. Each year, Graydon students demonstrate maturity, intellect, respect and dedication during the event. Robotics will be competing in local, provincial and international competitions starting this month - and extending until the end of the school year. The team has over 80 student participants. There are also a number of parent/community volunteers who mentor Graydon students. We are very thankful to all those, who give of their time, to support our students and program. Our Regional Program offers, in IBT and GDM, were sent out to students at the start of the month. We are excited and eager to welcome our new grade 9’s this coming September. They are in for a great experience both in and out of the classroom. Those accepted to the program are welcome to drop by the school, with their parents/guardians, anytime to take a tour and see what Graydon will be offering them in the fall. On January 24th, at the Board of Trustees meeting, the recommendations of the Final Report of the Pupil Accommodation Review was approved. As such, Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School will be closing its doors in June, 2018. The school’s International Business and Technology and Graphic/Design Management programs will be moving to T.L. Kennedy Secondary School for September, 2018. The Vocational One, Two and Autistic Spectrum Disorder programs will be moving to Glenforest Secondary School at the same time. The school will be supporting all members, of the school community, in the transitioning (of these two programs) to their new secondary sites. If at any time, there are questions about the transitioning, please contact a member of the administrative team. They are happy to be as supportive as possible and ease the anxiety and stress that may be associated with the change of program locations.
The third meeting, of the School Council, will be held Thursday, February 23rd at 7:15 pm in the school’s Learning Commons. Any parent/guardians, of a student registered at Graydon, is welcome to attend. The agenda (of the meeting) will be posted on the school’s website, under the “School Council” section one week before the meeting. Any information, about Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School, can be found on the school’s website. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @GraydonHawks. GO HAWKS GO!
SECONDARY SCHOOL PCSS students came back to school after Christmas Break with lots to look forward to. Our robotics team had their first competition after the break and team 4659-C was able to make it all the way to the quarter finals, on top of that teams 4659-A and B both hold spots in provincials taking place in March. Awesome job! Our athletes have continued to strive in their sports. Our boys’ hockey team has maintained their lead in the South division with 7 games won, our junior girls volleyball team also in the lead with a 5-game winning streak. PCSS junior boys’ basketball, varsity hockey, and senior volleyball team are all demonstrating PCSS spirit and playing hard. Keep it up! This month, the members of our boys’ club had the opportunity to talk to CBC about showing support and bringing awareness to boys’ issues, the interview will be aired on February 6th. With exams coming up PCSS staff members have been working extra hard to help students prepare. The incredible library staff has been putting daily study tips up on the PCSS library twitter account and catch up club remains open for students who want to study with the help of a teacher.
AN N MAR IE WAR MEN H OVEN On Tuesday, January 17th, Port Credit Secondary School was honoured by a visit from Ann Marie Warmenhoven, a U.S. Foreign Service Officer and is currently a Consular Officer at the U.S. Consulate in Toronto, Canada. Ms. Warmenhoven spoke to Grade 11 and 12 Social Science classes about her diplomatic experiences in a variety of postings, including to N’Djamena, Chad on a four-year posting. She took questions from the students at the end of her presentation which she described as detailed and challenging in their scope..

SECONDARY SCHOOL TA K I NG I T E A SY O N O U RS E LV E S By: Vyjayanthi Janakiraman From the packed library, to the hallways buzzing with conversations about exams set to start, it is undoubtedly the busiest time of year for Clarkson students. As students prepare culminating products and then write exams, the stress of it all can get pretty overwhelming, especially when university acceptance hinges on some key final marks. But thanks to a group of motivated Clarkson students, they’re make a difference by providing staff and students in the school with activities that promote wellness to help manage their stressful weeks ahead. Project Unity, a group created by Grade 9 Clarkson students, aims to promote healthy practices by allowing students to get involved with fun and stress relieving activities.
“All workshops were free for students to encourage them to make healthy choices,” said Ms. Wong, the lead advisor for this initiative. She added, “it is important to support physical, and emotional well-being. We are proud of these students’ efforts in their attempt and desire to make a difference.” Thanks to the hard work of Project Unity, the weight of the last few weeks of the semester seemed a little lighter, making fellow Chargers proud of their school.

As the first semester came to an end, Project Unity planned an exciting week that promoted eating healthy foods and spending time with furry friends. The dog therapy workshops, provided by St. John’s Ambulance, allowed many in the school to relax, yet others found comfort in art therapy or even Zumba classes. Project Unity’s efforts to promote healthy living during the busiest and perhaps most stressful time of the year for students and staff were greatly appreciated.

The week came together after the grade 9 students who formed the group applied for a United Way grant. Their proposal earned the group $500 to support their amazing idea and cause for the school.
5TH ANNUAL PORT CREDIT
VE Miss BEHA
COMEDY FESTIVAL LITTLE ONES & THEIR BIG PEOPLE ALIKE WILL BE HOWLING WITH LAUGHTER AT THE FAMILY SHOW!
The Family Show is a very special treat within the broader festival, delighting families and this year bringing to the stage the captivating MISS BEHAVE: a trailblazer of the Modern Variety scene, not to mention one of the LAST surviving female swordswallowers in the world! JOHN HIGBY, who has performed his unique high energy comedy yo-yo show in 26 countries from New Zealand to Japan, holding the world yo-yo champion title and 4 Guinness World Records will thrill everyone with his interactive performance with yo-yos (and maybe a unicycle thrown in there somewhere). And last, but never least, taking to the stage for your delight is GREG TARLIN, who can ride a tall unicycle, spin a tray on one finger, juggle with one hand, and spin a plate on a stick that he holds in his mouth... all at the same time! Thereâ€™s absolutely no better way to spend a winter afternoon than being entertained by world class performers and sharing laughter with the fam! The Port Credit Comedy Festival Family Show is sponsored by Theresa Baird.
The Festival partners with The Compass, a non-profit volunteer organization that serves the Mississauga South community. As with all of our other shows, attendees are encouraged to bring, or make a donation to The Compass at the Family Show. Going into its 5th year, the annual Port Credit Comedy Festival celebrates stand-up and variety comedy, bringing the unique talents of acclaimed performers from around the world, February 23-26, 2017.
