Join us in celebrating harvest with these 93++ point top rated limited availability wines

As the valley turns from contrasting desert browns and shades of green to hues of yellow and lavish magenta, there truly is no better time to experience the Okanagan.  With Fall’s arrival, the liveliness that takes place during harvest is infectious!

It is indeed a time for celebration and we’d like to share some of our favourite recent reviews and 93++ point wines.  We will waive the shipping on all orders placed in the next 5 days of 6 or more bottles, while supplies last.
