Our first Wine Mail offering was so well received, we were caught off guard and sold out of a couple of the wines faster than expected. We’re back with our second offering and this time we’ve made sure our inventory is good and we’re ready to go!
Our approach to the wines we carry is similar to our craft beer and spirits program: we handpick everything that is in the store. There is a sea of products out there, and we navigate through it looking for tasty value wines from smaller producers. Perceived value can be at any price point, so we categorize our wine selection into three distinct groups: Value Wines $20 and Under, Good Examples of Region or Variety between $20 and $50, and Wines of Stature $50+ (which we have stashed in our wine vault, where our staff can personally show you).
So whether you want to spend $12 or $1200, we have a wine for you in the carefully curated groups/categories mentioned above.
For Wine Mail #2 we’ve gone back to the Value Wines $20 and Under category where we unearthed some nice bottles at excellent prices! Browse the descriptions below and then head to the bottom of this post for ordering details.
Opera Prima Cava, Spain $13
The bubbles are a little bigger, but there is tons of flavour. No need to save it for Mimosas, this is straight-up delicious on its own (or Mimosas are good, too)!
Masia F Tempranillo Rosado, Spain $12
Everything you want in a Spanish rosé: fruity, fresh and juicy—just off dry. Yum.
Mission Hill 5 Vineyards Pinot Blanc, Okanagan $20
A fine example of my favourite BC white grape. This lovely Pinot Blanc offers heady apple and peach aromas with a zippy, crisp finish!
Vecchia Cantina 2016 Umbria Rosso, Italy $17
Great Italian value, for pasta or pizza night! It’s rich and juicy with ripe black fruit notes. Broad and smooth on the palate with a savoury touch.
Casa Santos Lima 2015 Bonavita Tinto, Portugal $15
With loads of ripe black currant and plum, it’s big, round and easy to drink. Perfect house wine.
Veramonte 2017 Red Blend, Casablanca Chile $18
Ripe blackberry, blueberry and cooked cherry aromas with hints of vanilla and fresh mint. This bold red is plush and flavourful on the palate.
