Special Events, Special Wine Tasting
All of us at the Wine Information Centre hope that you can join us for an afternoon of fun, food, wine & Christmas shopping ideas! We will have several wineries pouring their wines throughout the afternoon (2-3 wineries at a time), samples of many of the food products on offer in the shop, Anita Delong from Delong Studio with a large selection of her beautiful silver jewelry, Jennifer Schell signing copies of her locally-focused cookbook “The Butcher, The Baker, The Wine & Cheese Maker – An Okanagan Cookbook”, and Luke Whittall will be entertaining us all with his music!

We’ve recently received some new wine products in the store, both from existing wineries as well as some brand new wineries from Oliver & Osoyoos. New to the valley is Lariana Cellars, located right next to US border crossing, at the south end of Osoyoos. We’ve just received their first wine that’s been released – the 2012 Viognier.Another new winery to the BC VQA system is Intersection Winery, from the intersection of Hwy 97 and Road 8, south of Oliver. We have recently received their Mile’s End White (Viognier-Sauvignon Blanc), Milepost Red (Merlot) and Unfiltered Merlot.
We have a couple of new sparkling wines: Piano Brut from Stoneboat Vineyards, and the Old Vines Sparkling Chenin Blanc from Road 13 Vineyards.
A lovely treat for the palate is the Old Vines Trebbiano from Hester Creek.
We have received the new Rosé and the new Syrah from Hillside Estate Winery.
And, as usual, we are constantly updating our displays with new non-wine items. Here are a few photos of our current displays, including a large selection of cookbooks, picnic items and some great hostess gifts.

General Information, New Products
We’ve continued to receive some new vintages and new products (both wine and non-wine) here in store. Some of the new wine products are featured in this photo below…
Yes, that big bottle in the middle is a 3L bottle of 2010 ‘Seventy-Four K’ from Road 13 – perfect for a large dinner party or as a wedding gift! Other new wine products featured above include the 2011 Cabernet Merlot from Tyler Harlton Wines (Summerland), the 2011 Pinot Gris & 2009 Pinotage from Stoneboat Vineyards (Oliver), the 2012 The Market White from Sperling Vineyards (East Kelowna), the 2012 Riesling & 2012 Windfall (white blend) from Lake Breeze (Naramata), the 2010 Coyote Bowl Merlot from Church & State (Oliver), and the 2012 Gewurztraminer from Baillie Grohman (Creston).
We’ve started to get some new picnic baskets in stock, getting ready for the warmer weather (we’re sure it’s just around the corner now!) These make great gifts too, especially loaded up with a selection of wine and food items as if it’s a gift basket! We often make these up as wedding gifts for people. The new wicker picnic basket featured below would make a lovely wedding gift as the plates are actual china and the glasses are in fact glass!

It’s finally here – the sunshine, warmer weather, and new wine releases! We are steadily receiving new shipments of 2012 wines from the wineries. Based on what we’ve been hearing, 2012 was a great vintage and we now have many tasty whites and rosés in the store.
We also have many new non-wine items throughout the store in all the new spring colours: green, turquoise, orange and purple! Stop on in to shop for tablecloths, aprons, napkins, books, artwork, and many more items.
