In preparation for the new store opening I’ve been adding a bunch of new products in all categories. Here’s a brief summary and there are lots more to come after we get into our new digs.
Opera Prima – ultra cheap and surprisingly good Spanish sparkling wine. Great for Mimosas, Buck’s Fizz etc.
Lavit Rosado – agents unearthed a cache of this no-longer-available-in-BC Spanish sparkling rosé. One of my very long-time favourites (see the Desert Island video). Back for a very short time.
Cantavida Riesling – super value Chilean dry riesling
Doma Chardonnay & Merlot – 2 big bargains from Chile
Backyard Vineyards Zweigelt & Riesling – good red from the local Fraser Valley. Riesling is very fruity.
Dirty Laundry Hush (rosé), Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer – New 2010 vintage. Hush is fabulous this year, 50% cab. Franc, deep pink and solid dark red fruit taste.
Cedar Creek Rosé – first time for a rosé from this significant BC winery. Think strawberries…
8th Generation – Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Merlot. The sparkling chardonnay has sold out completely.
Lake Breeze Pinot Blanc – simply the best PB in BC
Stoneboat Pinotage & Chorus – back for the summer season again
Cassini Maximus – BC produces some great Bordeaux style blends. This one has extra heft too.
Fairview Bear – Big Cabernet Sauvignon from BC, will reward cellaring. Coming soon: Two Hoots, Cab Franc and Sauvignon Blanc too
Blandy`s Madeira – the brown wine of the Azores
& a new selection of draft Sake
Pyrat rum 750ml
Courvoisier VS cognac 375ml
Remy Martin VSOP cognac 750ml
Van Gogh Duble Espresso vodka 750ml

Créme de Cassis
El Jimador pre-mixed Margaritas
Ayinger Dunkel – German dark lager
Cooper’s Australian pale ale

This weekend is a our annual free BC wine tasting held in conjunction with BowFEAST. Tasting schedule for the weekend is as follows:
- Friday 13 August, 4pm to 9pm: Featured winery: Tinhorn Creek
- Saturday 14 August, 1pm to 5pm+: Featured winery:Dirty Laundry
- Sunday 15 August, 1pm to 5pm: Featured winery:Blasted Church
There’s a very good chance that there’ll be some others too but you’ll need to come in to find out 🙂
*UPDATE* Add Stag’s Hollow to Friday, Cedar Creek to Saturday & Joie Farm to Sunday
We’ll have some draw prizes for tasters over the weekend (every taster gets an entry, no purchase required). Grand prize will be a gift certificate for a 2 night stay at Tinhorn Creek’s winery guest house in Oliver. Second prize will be a copy of Joie Farm’s “Menus from an Orchard Table” signed by author Heidi Noble.
And to encourage you to ‘Drink BC’ this weekend you’ll get the full 10% case discount any purchase of 6 or more bottles of BC wine (this applies from 10:00am on Friday through 10pm on Sunday)
We will be offering two complementary tasting events in August.
Weekend Aug 14/15 (and possibly 13) – BC Wine. In conjunction with BowFEAST we will feature a selection of BC wines (predominately whites) over the Saturday and Sunday. May do a bonus session Friday evening, but have to confirm on that. Some of the wines in the line up for the weekend include Dirty Laundry, Blasted Church & CedarCreek
The second tasting is Saturday August 21. This will be the second in our Unusual Grapes series and will feature wines from Greece. This country has an ancient wine growing tradition – and it’s not just Retsina any more.
