We welcome vinAmité to our growing group of BC wineries that are participating in #ShiptoSip campaign to promote #BCWine.
It’s time to hibernate, so let’s do this, with wine!
We know how difficult it is to navigate through our new world. But you know what? We’re all in this together. There’s something about this that makes us appreciate the small things that much more. Right now, more than ever we’ve been given this opportunity to stand united while at the same time physically apart.
We’ve come up with some “wine pairings” to stay nourished, mentally active, and connected. We’ve got recipes, movies and projects to keep you busy while enjoying our wines. We’ve curated this 6-pack so that you can stay home. We chose simple recipes in which the ingredients may already be in your fridge, pantry or freezer (feel free to make substitutions and get creative!). We’ve also carefully selected movies that we think will enhance your experience and bring some joy, laughter and lightness to your day. They are all available through Netflix, Crave, or Amazon Prime. We’ve also thrown in some ideas for online learning, activities and resources.

On a different note, we’ve had to push our bottling dates to mid June as we didn’t feel safe going ahead with our April dates. Because of this, we will not have any new releases ready until July, so best to stock up now.
vinAmité would like to thank you for your continued support. It’s times like these that we need to support local.
This too shall pass.
