Just a reminder we will be closed Friday November 11th for the Remembrance Day. Thank you to all those that have served our Country.
Seasonal Timeline for Wines
we only have till November 13th to get on any Value (5 Week) wine kits in time for bottling before Christmas. For those that have placed orders for wines to be finished before the holidays, please keep in mind that we are very busy at this time of the year. We recommend if your free time to come and bottle is limited, to book as soon as you can. We really want to make sure everyone gets their wines but time is limited so don't wait to long to book your appointment.
2011 Limited Edition Series
To ensure you don't miss out on this year's five hand-selected varietals be sure to pre-order with us by December 5, 2011. The pricing this year is $186 each made on-premise and $126 each to take the kit home. As always we require a deposit of $25 per kit pre-ordered. If you purchase any five of the Limited Editions you will receive a $50 gift card that can be used towards any future wine kit purchase. This years wines are:

Special Specialty Wines
There are still a few of the Fabulous Chocolate Raspberry Port and the wonderful Blackberry Port left. They make perfect gifts and great party wines not to mention they are not bad on a cold day curled up on the couch watching a movie with a loved one either. So if you have ever wanted to try one of these outstanding treats now is your chance.
2011 Wine Tasting Event
On Friday November 4th, 2011 we held our 3rd Annual Limited Edition Wine Preview Tasting and Food Pairing Night that featured Food Network Chef Anthony Sedlak and Winexpert's Tim Vandergrift. Both men were thoroughly entertaining and a great night was had by all. Sandra and I have already started to discuss next year's event. While we really like to get as many people as possible to the events we have decided this was the last year for us to do two seatings in one night. We really want to have both Chef Sedlak and Tim Vandergrift back but don't want to rush either one of them as they are great entertainers and by doing two seatings it really is difficult to maintain a proper schedule without rushing them. We would like to thank everyone that helped us out putting on the event, Chef Anthony Sedlak, Tim Vandergrift, Savoury Chef, Old Mill Boathouse, Melanie Cossey, Chad Myers, Barry & Susan Agar, Chris Dowler (who came out of retirement for the event), 4 All Occasions Party Rental, Karen McGee at Shaw Sabey Insurance Brokers and all of our staff. Also we would like to thank everyone that attended and made the event a great success. Anyone that would like a copy of the recipes from the event, you can find them here.
