New Spring Releases
We’re excited to share that as of Friday, April 15th, our new spring releases will be available on the tasting bar and for sale online.
If you click on the links for each of the wines above, you can watch a video featuring our winemaker Alex Nel, as he discusses each of these new releases.
Small Lot Wines
With this new vintage, we are also proud to announce the launch of our new Small Lot series. This series aims to showcase vineyard specific, small lot wines, and allows our winemaker the opportunity to experiment and to create small, handcrafted batches of unique and distinct wines. We are pleased to announce our first new small lot wine:
Small Lot Dry Riesling from our Dry Creek Vineyard, which was fermented extra cold
Spring is Blooming
Spring is in the air and our vineyard team is preparing for the upcoming season. The buds on the vines are starting to swell and we anticipate the start of bud break in the near future. If you are on Facebook or Instagram, keep an eye out on our posts for updates on what’s happening in the vineyard and winery at this time of year.
Our winery tasting room will be open as follows:
Good Friday 10am-4pm
Easter Sunday 10am-4pm
Easter Monday 10am-4pm
In addition to Easter and the upcoming long weekend, another reason to celebrate is the fact that April is BC Wine Month.. This is a great time to open up a bottle of one of our new releases and raise a glass to say cheers. We are open from 10am-4pm Thursday through Monday (closed Tuesday and Wednesday), through the end of April.
