January Newsletter

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a great holiday season.

Our website went through a major change in December. Please take some time, check it out and give us your feedback. We appreciate any and all comments.

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 4 week wine kits are on sale this month, all 26 varieties. Save $10 when you make a batch in store or take the kit home and make it yourself. The original 4 week wine kit – great value, ready to bottle in 4 weeks and drinkable at a young age. What more could you ask for?

So, if Merlot is your favourite, if Cabernet Sauvignon is your go-to red, if Chardonnay is a must have or if Pinot Gris is the treat, we’ve got you covered!

Why not try something new? Diablo Rojo, Angel Blanco, Mezza Luna red or white, Viognier, Sangiovese are just a few you may not have tried and now is the time while they are on sale.

If you prefer our Selection 6 week wine kits the wines on sale this month are Spanish Rioja: Spain’s finest red wine blend from the famous northern Spanish region. Tends toward the traditional French blends, combining bright berry and spice flavours, deep red colours and solid tannin backup. Includes premium oak for a soft, dry vanilla finish. Delightful when aged. 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.

Check out our website for all the details on the above mentioned wines. Or call us! We would love to hear from you.

The LE14 limited edition wine kits have started arriving. The January releases are Australian Shiraz/Viognier and German Mosel Valley Riesling. If you pre-ordered these wine kits we will be contacting you shortly. If you did not pre-order and think you want them, please let us know as soon as possible. We have a couple of extra kits, but they won’t last long.

Well, that’s it for now. Hope to see you or hear from you soon.
