ECLIPSE replaces the Selection Estate wine kits. These wine kits are single vineyard sourced from renowned international regions and have been improved by the addition of varietal specific grapeskins to four of the five red wines. Julie’s favourite has always been the Lodi Ranch 11 Cabernet Sauvignon and now, with the addition of the grapeskins, it is even more awesome! Call us today to take advantage of this rare opportunity to save $20 and add these fantastic wines to your cellar.

A little SKIN goes a long way. This month is your opportunity to save $28 on all Selection Grapeskin Wine Kits. We have seven exciting and unique wines including Italian Amarone, Argentine Malbec, Spanish Tempranillo and Mike’s favourite Australian Petit Verdot.  Bolder flavours, richer colour, enhanced aromas, mouthfeel & tannins are achieved by the addtion of a grapeskin pack, without increasing the need for extra ageing. These wines drink very well soon after bottling, with improvement for several years under good cellaring. Call us today 604-465-9988 or Click here for more info & prices.
