  • Wine Club Feature: TH Wines

    From start to finish, Tyler Harlton’s hand-crafted wines are made with care and attention to detail. It’s fitting, then, that a pair of hands is featured so prominently on the labels of TH WinesWith total production sitting at around 1,800 cases, each of TH Wines’ reds and whites (and their rosé) get plenty of attention from Harlton and his team at their modest Summerland facility. (How modest? The “cellar” at TH Wines is Harlton’s garage.) Harlton sources select parcels of fruit from throughout the Okanagan Valley for TH Wines — sometimes in quantities so small there’s not enough to make a standalone wine, but rather the grapes are employed as part of a carefully crafted blend.

    It’s not often such a small-lot production is available beyond the cellar door. But it just so happens that TH Wines is the featured winery in this month’s My Wine Canada wine club selection. Act now (specifically, before midnight on June 15) and you can get these killer Okanagan Valley wines delivered to your door!

  • Free Shipping from Black Widow Winery

    Located on the picturesque Naramata Bench, Black Widow Wineryled by Dick and Shona Lancaster, has carefully crafted a winery focused on small-production whites, reds, rosés and sparkling wines. These are primarily made as single-vineyard offerings from their own property or three nearby Naramata vineyards. Over the last 17 years they’ve been joined by family and close friends in gradually creating a boutique winery, tasting room and patio that strives whenever possible to make wines that emphasize sustainable production and organic practices.

    The result is wines that consistently fare well in competitions and with critics, but that remain completely accessible to the average palate. These are must-taste Naramata wines that emphasize quality. Act now and get FREE SHIPPING on Black Widow Winery wines when you buy six bottles or more!

  • Bordertown Vineyards, MWC Wine Club, and a Revelation in NYC

    The BC wine industry is growing so fast, it's getting harder to keep up with new wineries appearing on the scene. When we used to count the wineries in dozens instead of hundreds (we’re pretty much at the 300 mark), the learning curve was a gentle slope. But now, this writer has to put in extra effort just to keep a basic handle on what’s going on! This matter came to the surface about a month ago, when I had the opportunity to travel to New York City, with the B.C. Wine Institute and a handful of B.C. wineries -including Bordertown Vineyards & Estate Winery, this month's featured vineyard for the wine club. One of their wines unexpectedly became a star of the evening.

  • Free Shipping from Sperling Vineyards

    Here in Vancouver, we’ve just gone through one of the rainiest, coldest and even snowiest winters on record. While I realize I’m not going to get much sympathy from those living in the rest of Canada, that certainly doesn’t diminish my eagerness for sunnier days and warmer temperatures. Consequently, I’m feeling a little more seasonal when it comes to what I’m drinking, and am fine to take a little sabbatical from rugged red wines that comforted throughout those abundant dark and rainy days. Is it possible that the Okanagan Valley’s Sperling Vineyards have read the minds of us who are so done with winter, by dangling the carrot of FREE SHIPPING when ordering six or more of their wines this week, so we can enjoy their lifted and bright wines that will suit our spring and summer well? With Mother's Day approaching, this is the perfect opportunity to give Mom her favourite wine and get free shipping!

  • Top Wine Picks: New Favourites

    I was just taking a gander at what’s new here at My Wine Canada, and can’t believe that in the short time we’ve been around, we’re now featuring wines from over 75 Canadian wineries from coast to coast! As I’m based in British Columbia, there are a good group of them that I’m quite excited about finally being able to share with the rest of the country. For this week’s Top Wine Picks, I thought I’d pass along some personal favourites from some of the newer kids on this block. Continue reading

  • Pair It Up! Cashews and Chardonnay

    This year has been exceptionally busy with travel (yes, I love my job) and through such a hectic schedule, I started to notice that small things make a big difference. Habits that you repeat from one place to another start to comfort you. A home away from home. One of the simple pleasures during my latest travels has been to snack on cashews (and sometimes other nuts - specifically hazelnuts) and sip on Chardonnay. Continue reading
