Black Widow Winery

  • 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!

  • The Free Wine Shipping Series is Back

    Last summer, we ran a Free Wine Shipping Flash Series where every week a different winery from across Canada provided free shipping on any orders of 6 bottles or more. It was so well received that we're doing it again…and continuing it right through to December!

    Every Monday, check our homepage banner to see which producer is featured. Then you've got one week to buy your favourite products from that winery or distillery (mixed packs are always encouraged) and get free shipping. By midnight on Sunday, the deal will be gone.

    When you sign up for our newsletter, you will always get a hint the week before about which producer will be the next featured free shipper (you can sign up at the bottom of any page on this site). A word of wisdom, when your favourite producers are featured take advantage of the free shipping deal and stock up because once a producer's week is up, you won't see them come around again.

  • Pair It Up! Black Widow Wines

    I recently waxed on around here about picnics, so let’s keep enjoying the great outdoors. Besides exceptionally longer days, things are looking sunnier and hotter, so I thought for this post that I’d pick out a few al-fresco-friendly recipes and toddle on over to British Columbia’s Black Widow Winery in Naramata to pour a little something to go with ‘em.

    Recipe #1: Tandoori Chicken. Over at Fine Cooking, Leona Dalavai shares her Dad’s recipe for Tandoori Chicken that’s doable on the backyard grill. While the marinade has some pleasant, cooling yogurt and lime components, you still have a good smattering of heat and spice from other elements like onion, garlic, ginger and chili powder.

    The Wine: 2015 Schönburger. Let’s add a little exotic, cooling flare with Black Widow’s 2015 Schönburger. The rare variety is a Germanic crossing of Pinot Noir with another crossing of Chasselas and Muscat Hamburg. Continue reading
