 STORING YOUR BEER!

Beer shouldn’t be stored under either fluorescent lights or in direct sunlight, since these lights will chemically alter it, giving it a rather offensive and “skunky” odour.

 If you are considering an area to store your beer, we recommend LED lights as they have a short spectrum, and are much less harmful than incandescent  or fluorescent.

APRIL RELEASES AVAILABLE NOW!

This year, Winexpert™ has sourced superior quality juice from Washington, California, Spain, Italy and Australia to bring you five impressive wines that will be a welcome addition to your cellar. Featuring unique blends and sought after varietals, the LE16 collection offers something for every palate.

April's Limited Editions have begun to arrive, with a new batch arriving weekly. If you have pre-ordered or pre-paid, your preferred pick up location will be in touch shortly to let you know when your kit is available. If you did not reserve ahead, here is what is left:

  • Milagro - LIMITED QUANTITIES LEFT
  • Vermentino & Cabernet Franc- SOLD OUT at the warehouse, limited quantities in store!
  • Grenache Cab (with skins!) - We've ordered extra in anticipation of this kits popularity, call your nearest store to reserve!

Grenache Cabernet, Riverland, Australia

This month's limited edition wine, Grenache Cabernet, is a blend of two grapes - truly a match made in heaven. Grenache tends to have silky smooth, fine grain tannins, resulting in a soft mouthfeel. When combined with a strong-willed Cabernet with chewy tannins and a rigid structure, it is possible to have the best of both worlds. The subtle fruitiness of the Grenache also serves to make the rich dark red fruits typical of Cabernet’s really “pop”. Additionally, the addition of Grenache to any blend will often increase the food-friendliness of the wine, smoothing out a potentially more tannic grape varietal, and allowing it to pair with a much wider range of dishes.

NEW LABELS! Arriving soon

We are very excited about our new line of labels, arriving any day now. We've sourced a fantastic selection of stylish, modern and artsy labels to shake up your cellar. 

 These new designs will replace our current images, refreshing the look and feel of many varietals. We can't wait to share these with you!

 

 

MONTHLY SPECIALS! 

WORLD VINEYARD - $5 off

VINTNERS RESERVE - 5$ OFF

BEER SPECIAL - BEER -  $4 OFF

A personal favorite, and recommendation for those who want a great summer beer is the Mexican Cerveza - nothing quenches better than this – light and easygoing. Fresh, bright, light bodied, clean flavour - great on the patio and beach. Comparable to a Pacifico.

Optional Add-On-Pack Pairings: You can create a wonderful Belgian Wit using Mexican Cerveza as the background.  A light, refreshing beer with a clean crisp profile. As with most wheat beers, the relatively high protein content leads to haze, giving the beer a light golden colour . With light body, slight sweetness and a zesty orange-fruity finish. Coriander, orange peel and our special Wyeast Belgian Wit yeast (see "Liquid Yeast" above) produces the complexity and depth of fruity flavours contained within the glass.
