Spring…actual Spring is here.  I picked up a nice bunch of tulips and daffodils today to try and convince myself that this is true.

What wine to serve with your turkey, ham, lamb or brunch.  Try these suggestions:

  • Turkey & Ham – Chardonnay or a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc would be great for a white wine    Pinot Noir or Zinfandel is recommended for red wine options.
  • Lamb – A big red, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or Australian Shiraz will balance the gaminess of the lamb.  Whites are tricky with lamb, but you can just serve a favourite dry white
  • Salmon – Dry riesling for the white and a fruity Pinot Noir for the white

We will be closed this Friday April 3rd for Good Friday.

Happy Easter and we hope that you enjoy some wine time with family and friends over the holiday weekend!

Celebrate Chile 

We have a promotion on two of our most popular Chilean wines.  Save $15 when you make in our winery (Sale price $170 when you make in our winery) . Save $10 when you take and make at home.  

Chilean Merlot


Ready in 6 weeks

Powerful fruit and spice flavour, with mellow tannins for a supple finish. Deserves ageing, but will develop quicker than Cabernet Sauvignon and will stand up to the same food pairings.


Chilean Sauvignon Blanc


Ready in 6 weeks

A gorgeous nose of honeydew, peach and gooseberry is followed by a silky palate with white peach and mineral flavours and a long finish. Bright, crisp and inviting at three months it’s refreshingly complex and tropical, and will develop notes of basil and mint with age.


Did You Know? 

Did you know that we have a breakfast wine?  My Mum, Penny, calls the German Muller- Thurgau her breakfast wine, because it has a nice grapefruity finish.  It is actually a Riesling blend that is just off-dry (1) and talks about flavours of green apples with a floral smoothness, but to my Mum’s taste-buds, it is grape fruit!
Great summer sipper if you want to try something new.
