To launch our 2010 selection of British Columbian wines we are pleased to bring Quinta Ferreira to the store for the first time. The Quinta Ferreira winery is located in Oliver, BC in the Black Sage Bench area, well known for producing very high quality grapes.The winery owners John and Maria Ferreira immigrated from Portugal in 1979 and have been growing grapes since 1999. They now produce VQA wines. As I’m a great fan of Portuguese wine, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try these out.

On our shelves from February 1, will be their Viognier, Chardonnay, Mistura Branca blend (Muscat/Gewurztraminer), Obra-Prima – Portuguese for “Masterpiece” – bordeaux style blend, Mistura Tinto (blend of merlot, cab sauv, cab franc, syrah, malbec, p. verdot.) and Rosé.

We are delighted that the tasting will be hosted by Nicole Ferreira, one of the the winemaker’s daughters. We will be opening four of the above wines and look forward to having you join us.

Quinta Ferreira are donating 10% of their wine sales to the Red Cross for HAITI disaster relief from January 15 to February 15, 2010. Taste some great wine and support a very worthy cause by taking some home with you too. Give $5  to the Red Cross at the store on the day and we will match it.
