Now you have the rare chance to try both Merlot's side-by-side and tell us about the differences you taste in each wine - who's up for the vertical challenge? We would love to hear from you in the comments.The holidays are all about spending time with family and friends so a fun fondue is a great way to bring everyone together to enjoy a meal this time of year. We've included our winemaker's favourite cheese fondue recipe to make from scratch and pair along with our Merlot for that epic fondue experience. RECIPE HERE.

This being our last advent wine, we want to take a moment to thank you for counting down to the big day with us and wish you a very Merry Christmas.

12 Wines of Christmas Wine #11

Advent Reveal # 11 is our award-winning 2020 Renaissance Merlot! An abundance of ripe dark fruit is balanced by notes of dried herbs, cocoa, liquorice, leather & toasty French oak. The palate is tight and youthful, yet plush and elegant. The finish is long with lingering ripe, dusty tannins and lively acidity. A wonderful wine to showcase at your Christmas dinner. Notice we added our sustainable wood bottle stopper...we're hoping you can savour, but SAVE just enough to taste this wine along with advent reveal #12, so use your stopper and watch for tomorrow's final reveal for more information 🍷 😇

Keira loves to make Pork Tourtière this time of year and pair it with our Renaissance Merlot for the ultimate Canadiana meal 🍁
Recipe she follows is here
Note, she prefers the breadcrumb version (not potato).

12 Wines of Christmas Wine #9

Advent Reveal #9 is our textural, tropical and citrusy 2022 Sauvignon Blanc. With bright acidity, vibrant minerality and texture, this wine has just the right amount of lush tropical fruit to balance the classic lemon and lime notes. A perfect match for our classic Pacific Northwest Coast cuisine....making this wine a great accompaniment or ingredient in Erica's delicious Creamy Lemon Shrimp Pasta. Happy sipping (and eating!)!
