Our Favourites Sale-Save $15

This was so popular last year that we are doing it again…featuring different wines that are staff favourites.  This month is my pick… Save $15 on Nancy’s Favourite Wines.  This is really difficult to do because I like them all, but these three are my “go to” wines that I always have at home.

Until February 28, 2017

Nebbiolo / Barolo (Reg. Price $176.00)


Ready in 6 weeks

Large and robust, this style is the one that lovers of big wines are looking for. Made famous in Italy’s Piedmont region – highly regarded for its finest wines – this Nebbiolo is rich in flavour and deep in colour, with a rounded oak aroma that lingers on the finish. Not surprisingly, Nebbiolo is a consistently popular offering year in and year out.


Australian Cabernet Sauvignon with Grape Skins (Reg. Price $165.50)

World Vineyard™

Ready in 4 weeks

Sweet and spicy on the nose, this is a fruit forward wine with flavours of cherry, raspberry and black currant finishing with rich, velvety tannins. Try with a charred gruyere burger, a mushroom pizza with tomato sauce or some marinated rib eye steak.


Nancy’s Notes:  This is one of our 5 week grape skin kits and it is delicious with very little ageing.  The flavours listed above are bang on.

Australian Traminer-Riesling (Reg. price $185)


Ready in 6 weeks

The lively golden hue reveals a combination of floral notes and apple crispness with perfumed headiness of lychee, rose petals, and hints of passion fruit. The long finish and medium body makes a great off-dry wine for sipping.
Excellent with Asian cuisine, soft cheeses, oily fish and especially smoked salmon.

Nancy’s notes: This wine is off-dry (1), but don’t let this scare you off.  It has a beautiful balance of crispness and intense fruit.  If you want to pick up a bottle at NB Liquor that is VERY similar, try Mike Weir’s Open Riesling Gewurztraminer or Hardy’s Stamp Riesling Gewurztraminer.
