Our main reason for visiting Mt. Boucherie is to reload our stock of Mount Boucherie Gamey Noir. But a few visits ago we also purchased a few other varietals including the Ehrenfelser. It is a good wine with food but not really a patio sipper. A winter white, in our opinion. Read More

Earlier this year we joined the Black Cloud Wine Club and we have now received our second shipment which included three bottles of the 2013 Fleuvage Pinot Noir. The 2013 grape growing season was a long warm one in the Okanagan Valley. It was a great year for the grapes and consequently the Fleuvage Pinot Noir benefited. Read More

Wine Tasting at Home – Castello di Amorosa

Posted on by Jeff & Tara

Castillo di Amorosa, Napa Valley, California

Even after 6 weeks in California we knew we were still only allowed to bring 4 bottles of wine back with us to Canada. It turns out that two of them (we actually brought five, shhh don’t tell) came from Castillo di Amorosa. It is unlikely that we will find another bottle of this one until we get a chance to go back to Napa, but we do recommend the wine and the castle if you are in the area… Read More

Serendipity-Rose-2012

Each year we get invited to a number of industry wine tasting events and our favorite is always hosted by the Naramata Bench Winery Association. We like that the Naramata Bench is a compact region to visit. We also love the small size of the operations and the unique stories behind each winery making many wineries of the region a great pick for our best BC wines… Read More

On our recent trip to California we tried as many Pinot Noirs as we could find (at least 15 from Napa – more about those later). But we were lucky enough to find one of our favorites from Oregon on the way home and to buy a bottle at the much cheaper $US price. Read More
