FOR THE ANIMALS

The Home Vintner helped raise over $1000 for the Airdrie and District Humane Society by hosting a fun night of wine tasting featruing Paul's cheese and chocolate pairings.

This was the first annual event for ADHS and was quite a success.  We are already planning to host another "Raise a Glass to the Animals" event again next year.

INTERNATIONAL SUMMER CELEBRATION

We are excited to once again bring you Winexpert’s 7th annual International Summer Celebration. This year we will be celebrating Italy in July and Australia in August.

On Sale in July: Italian Amarone

Italian Montepulciano

Italian Sangiovese

Italian Pinot Grigio

 

ITALIAN AMARONE $10 OFF

Italian Amarone is a very intense and complex wine, with a wide array of flavours and aromas. Deep ruby red, this heavyweight wine exudes aromas of sour cherries, dark chocolate, stewed plums, dried fruits, anise, raisins, bitter almond, tobacco, leather and molasses, and has a spicy-earthy bittersweet finish that lengthens on indefinitely from the huge volume of tannins. Delightful with food, Italian Amarone is often enjoyed by itself, sipped outside of mealtimes with good conversation and good friends.
Sweetness: Off-Dry | Body: Medium-Full | Oak Intensity: Medium

ITALIAN MONTEPULCIANO $10 OFF

Montepulciano is a vigorous red grape variety widely planted over much of east-central Italy, capable of creating deeply coloured, rich red wines with blackberry fruit flavours and spicy, peppery tannin levels. Montepulciano generally produces wines that are smooth and mellow yet robust and mouth filling, with dependably high alcohol content. Superb with veal and pasta an Italian gem you won't want to miss.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Full | Oak Intensity: Medium

ITALIAN SANGIOVESE $10 OFF

Italian Sangiovese (san-joe-VAY-zee) has a bright red cherry character, overlaying strawberry notes, with hints of violets and white pepper. It's medium body and long, wonderfully smooth, tannic finish is livened by a zing of acidity and toasty oak.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium | Oak Intensity: Medium

ITALIAN PINOT GRIGIO $10 OFF

The uniquely Italian version of the well known Pinot Gris grape, picked earlier in Italy than in all other regions and well before its characteristic loss of acidity at ripening, for a bright, crisp, dry white wine with a gentle perfume and a detectable spiciness. Fresh, fragrant and lively, its flavours include a certain flintiness with hints of citrus and almonds.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Light-Medium | Oak Intensity: None

AWARD-WINNING WINEMAKERS CHOOSE WINEXPERT BRANDS

A Winexpert Selection International Australian Shiraz took home this year's Best of Show Red.  Wines made with Selection Speciale won an incredible 45 medals.  Our Port, Cab Franc Icewine style, and Riesling Icewine style were once again gold medal winners for the thirds year in a row, as well both of the past Seasonal Release varieties, Chocolate Raspberry Port and Okanagan Peach Icewine were once again gold medal winners.
