Over the past year we have spent a lot of one on one time with the reps and wine makers involved in the VQA industry. You would be surprised at the amount of restricted allocations there are, and how far you have to stretch to get them. We have worked hard to establish a large, and still growing, selection of exclusive and allocated wine to share with you all!
From the renown, cult driven Burrowing Owl we have been allocated a wide variety over time, whites and reds alike, my favorite is their Merlot, rich, bold and packed with fruit and oak, a recommendation for anyone on the fence about it. Only a stones throw away, the Iconic Black Hills and their prized gem, Nota Bene, I could write a book on this masterpiece but it honestly sells itself. Continuing on to Hester Creek, we have had the privilege to be allocated their Chardonnay, this elegant white is fruity, smoky and a treat for the palate, very refreshing.
Other specialties off of the top of my head are; Church and State's award winning 2011 Quintessential, Stag's Hallow's 2012 Grenache, the first successful planting in BC and I love it, La Frenz Alexandria and Riesling, these beauties barely have time to touch the shelf. So the next time your longing for that great bottle you could only find at the winery, check out our site or stop by the store, there's a chance we might be able to save you that trip.
