Tasting Room Opening Hours for Summer 2017

Our tasting room will open a little earlier this season; join us from Friday May 5th, noon until 5pm, and every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through mid September. Case Club members will shortly receive a newsletter with information about our upcoming Case Club Event and Release Celebration. We’ve got a stellar line-up of wines set for release later in the Spring – from the most gorgeously hued Rosé, to our perennial favourite, Ortega; and that’s not all, we’ll be showcasing our first ever vintage of  Petite Milo as well as some fine Gewurtztraminer – both made with the best quality BC fruit from Vancouver Island and Summerland.
