  • Free Shipping From Eau Claire Distillery

    The packaging is stellar and the liquid in the bottle is nothing short of stunning. Based in the Turner Valley in Alberta, Eau Claire Distillery crafts beautiful premium spirits with the very best ingredients. A tribute to generations of local farmers in the valley who have dedicated their lives to growing the finest grains. While each spirit has its own distinct personality, what they all have in common is a smooth texture and precise, delicate aroma.

  • Top Wine Picks From Perseus Winery

    One of the hottest spots for wineries right now — in terms of popularity, not actual heat — is the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley. Wineries in the area continue to thrive both commercially and critically, pulling in all kinds of awards and great scores from critics and wine industry types. And as Naramata wineries go, none offer the quality-to-price ratio as consistently as Perseus winery - host of this week's free shipping special.

  • Pair it Up! GreenLane Estate Wines with Italian Cuisine

    I recently read an interview that Lidia Bastianich did for Western Living Magazine to promote Una Bella Notte con Lidia, a fundraising gala she'll be hosting in Vancouver later this month. Her new book Mastering the Art of Italian Cuisine came out late last year to rave reviews. In honour of this week's free shipping offer from GreenLane Estate Winery on 6 or more bottles, I wanted to pair up their wines with three of Lidia Bastianich's recipes from her most recent book.

  • September Wine Club Feature: Lang Vineyards

    It’s a name that has been synonymous with Okanagan Valley winegrowing for over 25 years now. Located on BC's coveted Naramata Bench, Lang Vineyards celebrated their silver jubilee in 2015, and have recently released a handful of wines that were made during those celebrations. It’s been a fascinating quarter-century for sure, beginning with Kristina and Guenther Lang attaining the first-ever Farm Gate Winery license in 1989 after growing grapes since 1980, which enabled them to start their own winemaking operation.

    If you’ve never tried their wines, or if it’s been a long time, now is a great time to give them a whirl. If you join My Wine Canada’s Wine Club by tomorrow (Sept. 15), you’ll get a curated selection of Lang Vineyards wine delivered to your door! Continue reading

  • Get Free Shipping on these Top Wine Picks from Le Vieux Pin and La Stella Wineries

    Old World wineries and wine-producing regions have long influenced those growing grapes and making wine on this side of the pond and throughout the New World. Without the incredible winemaking history in Bordeaux, Rioja, Burgundy, Tuscany, the Rheingau and the like, what would our viticultural history look like? More importantly, how would the wines taste? La Stella and Le Vieux Pin are two B.C. wineries who continue to do a great job paying homage to long-cherished Old World regions with the juice that ends up in their bottles, albeit with a New World flair that harnesses their unique terroir and combines long-established and newer winemaking techniques. And they're both offering free shipping on 6 or more bottles this week only - mix and match to your heart's delight, perhaps it's three bottles from La Stella and three from LVP! Continue reading

  • Canadian Winery Spotlight: Little Farm Winery

    For many, this week is truly the beginning of the year: it’s back to school. And for parents, this is usually a stressful time. Life becomes hectic again with a schedule that is filled with a long list of tasks. To alleviate some of the stress, below are three recipes from food guru Jamie Oliver that take just 15 minutes to prepare paired with three lip smacking wines from one of my favourite BC wineries - the Similkameen Valley's Little Farm Winery. A delicious meal and a glass of wine to match will immediately make you feel better and put a smile on your face. I call it gourmand therapy. In addition to being incredibly exclusive (small quantities made and not widely sold), Little Farm Winery also happens to be offering free shipping on 6 or more bottles of wine when you order right here!

  • A Clip ‘N Save Guide to Elephant Island Orchard Winery Food Pairings!

    In previous posts here at My Wine Canada over the last couple of years, both Michelle Bouffard and Jake Skakun have spoken to their initial skepticism on fruit wine, and how in spite of that, they’ve become big fans of the on-point, acid-driven, honest wine coming out of Miranda and Del Halladay’s Elephant Island Orchard Wines, hailing from British Columbia’s Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley.

    So, now that we know their wines are awesome, what do we do with them? For this post, I give you a clip ‘n save guide to fun food pairings for all of Elephant Island’s wines available here at My Wine Canada. This is also a great week to take advantage of this info, since THIS WEEK ONLY you can get FREE SHIPPING from them when you order a minimum of six bottles, and you can feel free to mix your selection!

  • Top Wine Picks from Trail Estate Winery

    Trail Estate Winery is one of the most exciting new wineries in Prince Edward County. The Sproll family purchased the 14-acre property in 2011 and began producing small lot wines in 2013. In 2015, the Sprolls hired Mackenzie Brisbois as winemaker and grape grower. Mackenzie honed her winemaking and grape growing skills all over the world, but she's particularly familiar with Prince Edward County. Not only did she grow up in the County, but she spent five years working for one of the greats, Norman Hardie. Mackenzie also brings an emphasis on experimentation to Trail Estate. I had the chance to taste through a range of her skin contact whites with Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling, and loved what I tasted. Below are a few favourites.

    As part of My Wine Canada's Free Shipping Series, this week the wines from Trail Estate Winery are available for free shipping when you buy 6 or more bottles. This is a deal worth jumping on. Continue reading
