Save 10% off our December Wines of the Month

December Wines of the MonthThe holiday season is here once again, and this year why not give yourself a gift?

Once again this month, we’re offering 10% off Tradition and Ultimate wine kits in our featured varietals.  With those savings, you can afford to indulge a little this holiday season (and with 30 bottles per batch, you’ll still have some to share)!

From December 1st to 31st, we’re offering 10% off our Traditional and Ultimate Californian Chardonnay (white) and Italian Valpolicella (red) wine kits.

Our Californian Chardonnay is a pleasantly rich and buttery dry white wine, displaying crisp green apple and Asian pear notes with delightful lemon flavours interlaced with toasty oak.

Our Italian Valpolicella features a fragrant, fruity, aroma with a soft silky texture.  Enticing aromas of fresh cherries and a hint of anise, as well as flavours of ripe, tart cherries, strawberry and plum.   Well-balanced by fresh-fruit acidity and a whiff of fragrant black pepper.

Come see us soon to learn more about these flavourful varietals, or to start a batch of your own!

Save 10% off our November Wines of the Month

November Wines of the MonthWhen the weather starts getting colder, it’s always comforting to revisit old favourites.  But why not try something new this month?

To encourage you to branch out and try new wines we’re once again offering 10% off Tradition and Ultimate wine kits in our featured varietals.

From November 1st to 30th, we’re offering 10% off our Traditional and Ultimate Sauvignon Blanc (white) and Cabernet Merlot (red) wine kits.

Our Californian Sauvignon Blanc displays a very pale grassy yellow tone with bright pea pod and characteristic lemon-grass aroma.  It is very dry and full-bodied.

Our Chilean Cabernet Merlot features dark plump berries and vibrant black currant flavours mingling with chewy, plumy Merlot characteristics.   It is rich and balanced with a mild peppercorn finish.

Time is running out to have your batches perfectly aged in time for the holidays, but with our 7-Day Accelerator packs you can produce the same wines you love in a fraction of the time of regular kits.  That means that you can bottle just 1 week after starting your kit, and you’ll still have a few weeks to age your wine before the holidays.

Come see us soon to learn more about these flavourful varietals (and our 7-Day Accelerator packs!) or to start a batch of your own!

BacTrack breathalyzers Now In-Stock

Wine PressSmaller than a cell phone, quick, and accurate to 0.01%, the F.D.A.-sanctioned BacTrack range of personal breathalyzers are a reliable way to help prevent accidents caused by impaired driving. These devices are a great tool for the socially-responsible consumer, providing an indication of blood alcohol levels within just a few seconds, and their sleek, professional design makes them small enough to fit in a purse or pocket, meaning they can go everywhere you go.

Although results are not admissible in court (due to the possibility of user error), they will provide an accurate indication of blood alcohol levels, allowing you and your guests to make responsible choices with regard to planning your way home.  The BacTrack is also an affordable choice; it NEVER requires individual mouthpieces to be inserted, touched, or replaced, and therefore also offers huge cost savings as there are never mouthpieces to purchase and replace.

BacTrack devices have been featured on a number of North American news broadcasts and television shows such as CSI: Miami, Dr. Phil, USA Today, Mythbusters, G4 Tech TV, and more. To learn more about what they have to say about BacTrack devices, click here, or visit the BacTrack website at http://www.bactrack.com
