Save 10% on January’s Wines of the Month

Did you resolve to save money and to try new things this year?  If so, we can help you check off both goals!

Until January 31st, 2011, enjoy 10% off our Traditional and Ultimate Italian Pinot Grigio (white) and Italian Barolo (red) wine kits.

Our Italian Pinot Grigio is a refreshing, light-bodied white wine for casual sipping and lighter foods.  Lively notes of green apple, lemon and a touch of floral excite the palate.  Excellent when served with pan-fried fish, chicken wraps, shellfish and light salads, or on its own.

Our Italian Barolo is rich and full-bodied, with inviting tannins and flavours of truffles, licorice and oaky earth. It is very complex with deep structure and layers of oak.

We’ll be closed today (January 1st), for New Year’s Day and Sunday January 2nd (as per regular business hours), but will reopen on Monday January 3rd, 2011.  We look forward to seeing you again soon in the new year!

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.

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.
