The Holiday Season is quickly approaching us and a few wineries are offering some incredible discounts on wine! There is no better time to stock up on BC wine and prepare for small wine nights with friends.
The following wineries are offering special discounts:
Vertical tastings are a fun way to taste how each vintage is unique and changes the characters of the wine. It’s a unique opportunity to explore the same type of wine from the same winery, but from completely different years.
Below are two incredible BC Wineries: Culmina and CheckmateWinery who are offering this special experience to sip different vintages, side by side.
Order a Gold ($60) or Silver ($50) Mini tasting set here
Each set comes with three 200mL bottles and a link to enjoy a virtual tasting with the winemaker!
A Gift Card to a Winery Restaurant
Some of the best restaurants across the province are at local wineries. The food is always fresh and chefs make extra efforts to create stunning dishes to pair perfectly with wine. Purchase a gift card for a friend or family member to use next season!
I absolutely love building delicious charcuterie and cheese boards but what really steals the show is the wooden board itself. I found an amazing local company that is launching just in time for the holidays, Holt and Lamb. They are located in the Fraser Valley and specialize in one of a kind, hand-crafted, high quality wooden products including trays, charcuterie boards, crib boards, and custom tables! Each piece is made using sustainable, locally salvaged wood products from British Columbia.

An award-winning decanter
I love opening up my red wine prior to enjoying but usually don’t have hours on end to do so. Well, our friends (from New Westminster) at vSpin created a decanter that decants wine in just 4 minutes! Most aerators on the market only introduce a limited amount of air to your wine, while vSpin fully aerates your wine, all timed and controlled by you. This was also a winning product of the German Design Award in 2018.
Sabrage is a technique for opening a champagne bottle with a saber, used for ceremonial occasions (or any night). One of my favourite wineries, Fitz Wine, offers a traditional knife that you can purchase here for $125.
A wine scented Candle
Locally made candles that feature the beautiful aromas of BC wine? Yes please! Each and every one of these Crush Candles are hand cut, sanded, small batch poured with 100% soy wax and scented with aromas inspired by the Okanagan Vineyards.
Purchase a FITZ candle here or check out local wineries that feature their own scents.
A BC Wine Book
Purchase a BC Wine Book to read fireside over the holiday season. Here is a list of some of my favourites:
