I Get Knocked Down During today's tasting, the store's stereo will mysteriously "break down" forcing us to play "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba on repeat while we taste wines that are good for pain-management (I.E. literally any wine). Join us 2pm-5pm.

Bench 1775 One of our favourite wineries from Penticton, Bench 1775, will be in to pour us their latest vintages. I used to think their name was a reference to the American invasion of Canada of 1775, wherein the revolting Americans took out their frustration towards the Crown by attacking and losing to their northern neighbours. Turns out 1775 is just the address of their winery. Come taste their wines 2pm-5pm.
