Bench 1775 These people owe it all to the dirt. Off the shores of the Okanagan Lake, Bench 1775 isn't just home to some good dirt. They have great dirt. Great dirt leads to great wines. I'd say do 'the math' (as a cute lil' joke) but I hate being forced to do math so I won't make y'all go through that. We're in this together, from 2pm to 5pm.

Serendipity Retirement is for the weak! Didn't you ever see No Country For Old Men? Retirement will hunt you down and kill you with a silenced shotgun if you let it get you, or at least it'll make you feel generally inadequate and all while sporting a really unsettling haircut... That's why winery owner Judy Kingston is working hard in her "retirement" as owner, farmer, manager, sales-rep, and delivery-person for Naramata's newest prized winery, Serendipity. Help carry the fire from 2pm until 5pm.

Howling Bluff The other day, a customer came in and said with the confidence of 80's Banker that he wanted some of that "Hollow Bluff" wine and then, ladies and gentlemen, something in me broke. Immediately, I couldn't remember how words 'worked' as in I couldn't read the word "Howling" properly enough to correct him. I couldn't tell you the difference between the words "Hollow" and "Howling," even though it's logical that I'm the one who typed all this out, I simply can't tell the difference. They're the same to me. Help break the curse by tasting some Howling Bluff wines with us from 2pm until 5pm.

Pacific Breeze Pacific Breeze are that great lil winery from New West, known for their big and bold Killer Cab that is surprisingly NOT a reference to William Friedkin's 2011 film, Killer Joe, where Matthew McConaughey plays a cop who moonlights as a trailer-park assassin. I know, I was bummed when I found out too. Come taste some of their other wines, 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, May 23, 2015
Adega on 45th Adega on 45th is super new to the store, but we're pleased as punch to have them. In fact, we're even more pleased than just punch. We're as pleased as spiked-punch-at-the-company-retreat. That's pleasing, right? Come try the wines of Adega on 45th Estate Winery with us and we'll be even more pleased, from 2pm until 5pm.

Baillie-Grohman It says on every bottle of Baillie-Grohman wine "The Adventure Continues." When did the adventure start? Baillie-Grohman are named after famed big-game hunter and Kootaney explorer, William Adolf Baillie Grohman, so I assume the adventure started in 1880, or something. That's one long adventure. Join the adventure by tasting the wines of Baillie-Grohman, 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, June 6, 2015
Stag's Hollow Stag's Howling is one of my favourite wineries out of the Okanagan Falls. Across the board, they make amazing wines. Come try some of the best OK Fall's has to offer, from 2pm until 5pm.

Saturday, June 13, 2015
Fort Berens Forts are the coolest. At least that's what my neighbor's son tells me and he's the only 8 year old I know who has sideburns and still uses a Motorola flip-phone, so he seems legit. Come try the best wines of Lillooet with Fort Berens Estate Winery from 2pm until 5pm.
