Delivering convenience for your table this spring
As we all SIP (shelter in place) with loved ones this spring, Hester Creek is providing some added conveniences for making life a little easier and more enjoyable. Our new offerings include new takeout dining options, a spring photo contest, and spring wine releases with free shipping.
We have started a takeout service from our Terrafina Restaurant on Wednesdays and Saturdays with a delectable weekly fresh sheet menu by Chef Adair. Guests may add bottles of wine to their dinner order (at wine shop prices), along with the option for free home delivery from Osoyoos to Okanagan Falls.
For Easter, Chef Adair has also designed a special multi-course dinner menu for two or four. Safe contactless pickups will be arranged for Sunday April 12. More details are at www.terrafinarestaurant.com.
In these uncertain times, we’re pleased to offer budget friendly, friends and family pricing of $15.99 of our 2019 Pinot Gris Viognier and 2018 Select Barrels Merlot, with a minimum 6 bottle order. This wine special is available for a limited time, until Monday April 20th.
A new 2019 release, our unique white blend of Pinot Gris (71%) and Viognier (29%) is crafted with fruit from select growers in Oliver and Osoyoos. An enticing and unoaked wine, the lush and refreshing palate is bursting with zesty citrus flavours balanced by wildflower honey.
The 2018 Select Barrels Merlot is made with fruit from our Golden Mile Bench estate along with our vineyard manager Iqbal Gill’s vineyards here in Oliver.
Starting this Wednesday, April 8th, we’re inviting people to share their Hester Creek spring moment. Whether it’s a food pairing, an afternoon on the deck, wine with a view, or a bottle shared with a partner. Users can post their Hester Creek spring moment on our social channels with the lucky winner receiving a prize pack valued at $250. Use hashtag #SpringWithHester through Instagram and Facebook from April 8th – April 30th. Each post will have a chance to win, and users may post as many moments at they wish!
Also, just in time for Easter, we are delighted to offer a variety of our new 2019 vintages. We provide free shipping across Canada with minimum 6 bottle orders, no code required.
2019 Character White
$15.99 (B.C. + tax, available late spring)
This aromatic blend comprised of approximately half Pinot Gris and half Gewürztraminer, showcases the unique vineyards of the south Okanagan. This vintage has ripe fruit scents of tropical and orchard fruits. An unoaked and pleasingly succulent wine, the vibrant flavours of white peach and green apple jump from the glass. Easy drinking and made to enjoy now, serve well-chilled.
2019 Pinot Gris
$16.99 per bottle (B.C. + tax)
The fruit for this wine was handpicked at our estate Road 7 property in Oliver, along with our vineyard manager Iqbal Gills’ vineyards nearby. Aromatic and thoroughly captivating, our unoaked Pinot Gris has a vivid bouquet of honey, apricot, and honeydew melon with hints of a steely minerality. A crisp, yet luscious palate follows of apricot, papaya, pear and tropical melons.
2019 Old Vines Trebbiano
$20.99 (B.C. + tax)
Rare and exceptional, our Trebbiano is sourced from old vines on our estate imported directly from Italy in 1968. The fruit was handpicked at the end of September, then destemmed and left whole for gentle pressing. A striking example of Trebbiano, it presents a tropical bouquet of sweet pineapple and zesty citrus with a streak of stony minerality. A revitalizing palate follows, full of lip smacking acidity, with crisp apple, grapefruit, and dried apricot flavours. Unoaked and phenomenally versatile.
2019 Rosé Cabernet Franc
$17.99 (B.C. + tax)
The handpicked grapes for this vintage were sourced from three longtime growers in Oliver and Osoyoos. Delicious and tempting, this medium bodied, unoaked Rosé offers fresh aromas of cranberries and crabapples, along with a whiff of white pepper. Lightly sweet flavours of wild strawberry, rhubarb and cranberry greet the palate. Enjoy this pretty wine well chilled on the deck, or with your favourite Mediterranean cuisine.
