Don’t shoot the messenger, but I am going to talk Christmas!  You should be making your wine for the holiday season now.  If you make your wine this week, we are not bottling it until late October or early November…so that gives it a few weeks to age in the bottle before you start opening it up and sharing at your parties.  Everybody always goes through more wine than expected (Me too!)…so take advantage of our sales before Christmas and make extra 🙂

Multi-Buy Sale on Selection Wines

These are our most popular wines…we sell more from this category than any other and there are over 40 wines to choose from.  Selection wines take 6 weeks to make and include some of our personal favourites!

New Labels

A little housekeeping note…We are getting new labels in stock these days that look like paper, but they are, in fact, thin vinyl.  We have been telling you for years to put hot water in your bottle to rinse it and then remove your label and this doesn’t work as well with the new labels.  The label is so thin, that some glue can get left behind on the bottle when it is warmed.  So the new recommended procedure is to remove the label when the empty bottle is room temperature and then rinse with warm water.  Hope that helps! Don’t forget to store your empty bottles upside down to keep them clean.


Merlot Ho Ho and Ports In Stock

If you pre-ordered some of these specialty wines (Chocolate Raspberry Port, Blackberry Port and Island Mist Merlot Ho Ho), you should have received an e-mail from us.  If you didn’t get an order in before the deadline…I did bring in some extras of each style. Contact us by phone or e-mail if you are interested in reserving one or two.

 Wine T-Shirt 

We are doing a pre-order on “winey” t-shirts.  I have been wearing mine for a couple of months and love it!  They are a womens fit t-shirt, which means it fits curvy bits 😉 and they wash perfectly (in the washing machine on cold…nothing special). This is a Canadian company which means the price is a lot lower than comparable suppliers, because we aren’t paying any duty!

They are $20 each and the sizing chart is below.  If you are interested for yourself or for gifts, call us at 384-2955 or send us an e-mail at  Orders are due by September 30th. We will contact you when they arrive and take payment at that time.
