February News and Specials
February is the month of Love and to celebrate we are putting the wines WE love on sale.
We are sure you will love them also.
Selection features fine grape varietals and blends, showcasing distinct styles of the world’s most prominent winemaking regions. Ready to bottle in 6-8 weeks.
Selection California Symphony– A white wine with the incredibly intense aromas of melon, grapefruit, mango, peach, banana and papaya. The fruity character picks up a strong backbone from the good acidity, and hint of tannin, carried over from the Grenache Gris grape.
Selection California Cabernet-Merlot – The medium-full body and complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the soft fruit-forward flavours of Merlot. Perfect harmony together. An ideal match for barbecued red meats.
Save $15 on these two lovely wines.

LE16 LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION
The February LE16 wine is Milagro. Blending grapes together is an art with, of course, a bit of science, and the grapes here are perfectly suited. Three of Spain’s great red varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha and Bobal bring their lush and hedonistic qualities to the full-bodied and well-structured friends Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Together, you have a wine with a range of black and red fruit characteristics, cherry cola, anise and white pepper with a powerful yet supple mouth-feel.
If you pre-ordered this wine, we will be calling you shortly to let you know the kits have arrived in the store! If you did not pre-order and think you want this special red wine, call us today. The Limited Edition wines always sell out fast and this one will be gone quickly.
