Big News for January!

Big News for January

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had an excellent Christmas season. With plenty of good friends, good food, and of course good wine. We had a fabulous vacation in Costa Rica, and are fully rested and energized to start the new year.

First, the BIG NEWS. After 22 years in business we have decided to change our hours. Yes, you read that correctly. We are changing our hours.

Effective Tuesday January 17 the new hours will be:

Tuesday – Friday open 10 AM until 6 PM (1 hour earlier start & finish)

Saturday open 9 AM until 4 PM (closing 1 hour earlier)

Sunday & Monday & Stat Holidays remain the same – CLOSED

We seem to have less demand for late bottling and more for early bottling. We will of course stay open late by appointment. So if you need to come for later bottling just let us know and we will be happy to accommodate.

Now on to the really important stuff, what’s on sale this month? The busy Christmas season is over, we are all back to work and back to school. After all that entertaining and gift giving, it must be time to restock your wine cellar.

Vintner’s Reserve The original wine kit – great value, ready to bottle in 4 weeks and drinkable at a young age. What more could you ask for? Save $10 made in store or take home. 

The red wine on sale is Vieux Chateau du Roi: Robust, rounded and smooth, the bouquet of berries and flavours of ripe plum are beautifully integrated into an elegantly structured finish with hints of oak that will reward ageing. The white wine on sale is Piesporter: Transported from Germany’s Mosel wine region, this wine is characterized by vivid fruitiness and lively acidity balanced perfectly by floral aromas and a perfect amount of residual sweetness on the finish.


If you prefer our Selection 6 week wine kits the wines on sale this month are Vieux Chateau du RoiFull-bodied, yet soft and quick to mature, this is the perennially popular French red wine blend that continues to keep them coming back with its smooth, easy charms. A Winexpert specialty, blending a host of grape varieties, each contributing to the layers of aroma and flavours that make this so special. Complex and full of character, yet supple and easy drinking.

And Piesporter: The town of Piesport in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine region has an ideal steep amphitheater site perfect for producing sound, honeyed, delicate wines. Our version captures the classic flavour and magical fragrance of this respected German style through the addition of our F-pack and a special package of dried elderflowers. Save $15 on these very popular, easy drinking wines.


In our 4 week international World Vineyard line we have on sale this month Spanish Tempranillo: Gorgeous ruby red in colour, this medium-bodied wine is Spain’s answer to Cabernet Sauvignon, with berry, plum and herbal notes running to a lush finish of tobacco, leather and vanilla. Serve with roast pork, sheep’s milk cheeses, roasted vegetables or lamb. And California Moscato: Lush, fruity, and delightfully sweet with juicy peach and tropical fruit flavours. Save $15 when you make a batch in the store or take the kit home and make it yourself.
