UPDATE: Bring your own fruit, well received

..This is the season, “Harvest any fruit, and give it a try too….”

There are two things you can do with your fruit harvest. One is to enjoy the fun of making your own wine at home. Fruit harvested from your own garden, berries picked on your secret slope, or even a good deal at the market, it is easy to turn fruit into wine. Come in the store and I will explain you how to move forward. We carry all material needed.

A second option is to bring some of ‘your catch’ to the store and add it to your kit. Make your personal and unique wine. Adding your own fruit to the kit has gained quite some popularity over the past year. Give it a try too, you’ll be amazed.

chocolate cherry pinot noir

NEW: Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir

Honestly, I have not yet been able to taste this Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir prior to writing this. But simply seeing which ingredients are being used to make this smashing creation, I cannot conclude other than: “..wow, this must be deliciously different...”! How much more exiting can it get?

This Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir is described as a luscious blend of juicy black cherry, rich dark chocolate and subtle vanilla flavours. You’ll savour every second from the alluring cocoa and ripe red fruit aromas to the gentle chocolaty finish. With its signature Niagara Mist easy-drinking, gentle fruit-forward sweetness and light body, this Chocolate Cherry Pinot Noir is just decadent enough to be a treat, but still light enough for every day. Given the profile of this wine, the designer has obviously been aiming for a profile allowing a more versatile, year round, use. The availability is limited, so make sure to leave me a note if you want me to put one aside for you. Sorry, otherwise, I cannot make any promises. First come first serve. Expected in store by the end of August.
