Wine lovers, listen up! If you are looking for the perfect summertime wine, we have selected some must-tries for this season that we do not want you to miss out on. Whether you are looking for a perfect wine to complement your delicious summer barbeque, a light wine to indulge on on your patio during warm summer nights, or a brand new and limited edition wine, you will love the three wines we would like to introduce to you.

 Henry of Pelham Baco Noir – Classic Collection

This wine is made from fruit derived from Henry of Pelham’s own vineyard in Ontario and is aged in American oak barrels for 6 to 8 months. It is deeply colored and has spicy, blueberry compote flavors with natural currant and briar patch fruit. It displays startling intensity that will increase in complexity over the next five years. It is the perfect wine for a summer or Canada-day barbeque as it is not too heavy, yet full of flavor. Ontario is known for this unique varietal Baco Noir.

Mt. Boucherie Gewürtztraminer

Flavors and aromas of fresh rose petals and lychee make this wine a true Gewürztraminer. Made from 100% estate fruit from Sunrise Vineyard in OK Falls BC, Similkameen Vineyard in Cawston BC and Douglas Road Vineyard in West Kelowna BC, this refreshing, dry wine pairs very well with apple pork chops, Moroccan vegetable curry, shrimp Pad Thai or any other light summery foods. You can also enjoy it all by itself to wind down on your patio after a long day.

Culmina Family estate Unicus Grüner Veltliner 

Latin for incomparable, unprecedented, or ‘only’, Unicus represents the Okanagan Valley’s only release of Grüner Veltliner. Harvested from Margaret’s Bench, one of the highest vineyards in the Okanagan, Unicus displays notes of mineral, citrus, and peach that are complimented by subtle wild flower and spice aromatics. Framed by Unicus’ generous palate, white pepper and herbal flavours emerge and are carried through the mid-palate by a distinct mineral core, and a long, pithy, white grapefruit finish. Unicus embodies Culmina’s effort to create wines of outstanding originality, interest, elegance, and style. This highly sought after wine is brand new to Alberta. It is another perfect patio pleasing wine, complementing light barbeque foods and fresh seafood. The production is very limited, so best get your hands on it while you can!
