Phantom Creek Estates’ Debut Month Eclipses Expectations, Achieving Full Allocation of its Most Iconic Wines
Okanagan Valley Winery Invites its Grand Cru Club Members to Celebrate this Singular Milestone with Special Release Event on Saturday, October 3, 2020
Phantom Creek Estates, a new, cutting-edge winery nestled in British Columbia’s scenic Okanagan Valley, is excited to announce that – within just one month of the winery’s debut in June 2020 – its flagship wines from revered Phantom Creek Vineyard have been fully allocated to the winery’s exclusive Grand Cru Club members ahead of their official release.
“It’s an auspicious beginning for a new winery” said Santiago Cilley, CEO of Phantom Creek Estates. “This milestone highlights the significant interest among collectors for age-worthy wines from this storied site,”
Grand Cru Club members enjoy impressive yearly benefits, including a guaranteed allocation of Phantom Creek Vineyard wines, complimentary tastings and tours of the expansive Estate, preferential access to a members-only outdoor terrace with panoramic views of the Okanagan Valley, and hosting privileges at the private tasting room on the winery’s top floor. Although the Grand Cru Club membership is currently at capacity, interested parties can register for the waitlist or join the winery’s Estate Club, which entitles them to a priority position on the Grand Cru waitlist and access to an exclusive selection of Phantom Creek Estate’s wines, including its wine club-only small lot wines. Like Grand Cru Club members, Estate Club members receive three shipments of six bottles each year and have access to the members-only terrace.
Additionally, Phantom Creek Estates is looking forward to welcoming Grand Cru Club members to a noteworthy event on Saturday, October 3, 2020 in celebration of the winery’s full allocation of its Phantom Creek Vineyard wines and release of a special vintage. Alongside acclaimed winemaker, Francis Hutt, and renowned vintner, Philippe Melka, the Phantom Creek team will release their 2017 vintage and invite guests to experience an exclusive tasting masterclass.
Phantom Creek has implemented enhanced safety measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all guests and staff, including installing no-touch sanitation stations at all entrances and high-traffic areas, stringent hand-washing and personal care protocols, and sanitizing of public spaces after each guest usage.
