To celebrate Mother's Day, we sent the April wine club shipment to two Moms and asked them to describe their unboxing experiences. Check out what supermoms Jennifer and Amanda had to say about the gift experience from receiving wine to their doorstep to enjoying it with friends.
And to make things even better, we've taken the perfect Mother's Day gift - and given you a discount on it! Our premium 2-bottle wine club package and 3-bottle wine club package are now on special. When you hear which popular BC winery will be featured in May, you'll know Mom will love it.
From now until Mother's Day, our 2-bottle wine club packages will be $64 (regular $69) and our 3-bottle packages will be $89 (regular $99). That's THREE exclusive bottles of wine hand-picked by wine experts including tasting notes sent directly to Mom's doorstep from the Okanagan Valley in BC - for only $89! You won't see this deal anywhere else. Plus, you can choose All White, All Red, or Mixed wine in your package. To get the discount, type "MOM" in the 'Special Instructions' box during the Checkout process. That way, you will be sure to receive your discount when your credit card is charged. And if you would like a special printable "Welcome to the Club, Mom!" certificate, let us know in the same Special Instructions box, and we'll email it to you. Mom will receive her wine the week of May 16, right to her front door!
So who's the featured winery for May? It's the esteemed JoieFarm winery from BC's Naramata Bench! JoieFarm was started in 2003 by Vancouver sommeliers Heidi Noble and Mike Dinn who decided to leave the restaurant industry and get their hands dirty in the Okanagan terroir by handcrafting what is now considered some of the best wine in Canada. The winery's name means "joy" in French and expresses the pleasure that wine and food bring to people's lives. We thought JoieFarm would be the PERFECT winery for May, and a wonderful way to bring wine and joy to your Mom!
(Oh, and did we mention that you can't get these wines ANYWHERE else, but here on My Wine Canada?) ;-)
