2017 Merlot Remains $20 per bottle!

As the days warm up and the sun begins to shine after the strangest of winters, we are very much enjoying this time in the vineyard. There is an abundance of life: the vines have awoken, buds are bursting and Gavin has almost finished preparing the irrigation for the long, dry Okanagan summer ahead.  Watching a dormant vine burst into life for a new season gives us hope for the future; life goes on.  Farming doesn’t stop and vines will continue to grow and we will make wine again.

The support of our customers during these recent difficult times has been incredible and it warms our hearts to know that even when you can’t come and visit us or have a cheese board, pizza and a glass of wine on our patio, that you are continuing to appreciate what we love to do in the safety of your own homes, thank you.

Our 2016 Merlot is now SOLD OUT and we are today releasing the brand new 2017 Merlot. Also we are continuing to honor our promise to keep our Merlot at $20 (plus tax) until the Merlot Cabernet-Franc is available again. That is a savings of $10 per bottle! (The MCF should be ready within the next few weeks, so don’t miss this opportunity to stock up on Upper Bench Merlot at an incredible price).

And of course, we are continuing to offer free shipping on all orders to anywhere in BC.

2017 Merlot

Nose: black cherry, dark chocolate, cigar box, cassis, dusty velvet
