Adult Advent Calendar from Bench 1775



The Holiday Season is just around the corner and it’s time to start counting down to my favourite time of year, Christmas. Every year, I usually get a chocolate Advent Calendar to mark the occasion, but this year, I received the greatest gift of all- a Bench 1775 Advent Wine Calendar!

This calendar should be on the list of every wine lover. Bench 1775 is a winery located on the Naramata Bench that are known for their award-winning wines and spectacular views of Okanagan Lake from their patio overlooking the vineyard. [*Side note- this is always on my list when touring the area as a must stop.]


For the second year in a row, the winery decided to release 50 special packages of its Advent Calendar. The Calendar arrives in a beautifully wrapped “Joy to the World, the Wine is here!” box. Inside, you will find each bottle wrapped with ribbon and a number (1-12) marking each day. Each bottle is a complete surprise to open as you won’t know what is inside, but I can tell you Bench 1775 included a mix of Red, White, Rose and Wine Club exclusive wines. I can’t wait to unwrap these wines to see what’s inside…


There are only 50 packages available, so be sure to order online here before they sell out! All orders must be placed by November 29th to ensure timely shipping.

Be sure to follow @uncorkBC on instagram as I unwrap each bottle and celebrate the countdown to Christmas!


Mother’s Day at Township 7 in Langley!

On April 25, our lives changed forever when we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Chloe Marie, to our family. In just one week, I have learned what is most important in life- my new family of three. As a new mother, I am taking it day by day working on finding balance with our newborn. To be honest, I feel like we’ve been blessed with a perfect little angel because she just makes things seem so easy!

With my first Mother’s Day quickly approaching next Sunday, I knew I wanted to celebrate in a very special way. It’s been over 10 months since I’ve tasted at BC wineries, so I decided to plan a trip to our Langley wineries! To be honest, I am not sure how many wineries we will visit- it’ll depend on our how our little babe does on the big outing- but we’ve got one special event on our list.

Township 7 in Langley is hosting a special chocolate and wine pairing event as part of their Mother’s Day celebrations. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with their 2016 Seven Stars Eclipse Sparkling win, followed by a glass of their just released 2018 Rose, paired with three chocolates by local Abbotsford chocolatier, ChocolaTas. Live tunes is by Vancouver folk duo, the Coalmont Band. There are limited seats available at 12 and 2:30pm seatings. Tickets are only $25 and will sell out soon! Be sure to get yours today by calling 604-532-1766 or clicking here. I also hear they are releasing their Rose the same weekend! Be sure to follow along @uncorkBC as I will be sharing event highlights during the day.

Wishing all the mama’s out there a very special Mother’s Day next weekend!
