Seize the day! Our new wines are now available. Make the most of the time you have. These are all apt thoughts for the month of May as we enter June soon. Especially for us here in the South Valley. It wasn’t an especially harsh winter—they never are—but it seemed like it went on way too long. The vineyard is pruned, mulched, fertilized and watered in, and bud break is way behind us and the growth of this vintage is on! Meanwhile, we have just released our new wines to vinAmité club members who have been notified and their orders are being fulfilled. So here we go with another great year as we release our 2018 Pinot Gris, Chanson d’amour and Gamay Noir, and our 2017 Chardonnay, Petit Claret, Compass, Hidden Corner and Petit Verdot. We are excited for you to enjoy these new vintages full of flavour and balance—two benchmarks of vinAmité’s approach to our signature style of winemaking. We are now open 7 days a week from 10 to 6. Until recently with this new release for the 2019 season, we were sold out with only a few 2017 Pinot Gris and 2016 Hidden Corner cases left for our shelves. Essentially we were sold out of eight of our wines and our first issue of Ouest port-style. New supplies of our Compass-soaked saucisson sec selections are in, along with mouth-watering rustic terrines and popular rillettes and all the other taste-laden succulent goodies we put together for our now-famous charcuterie platters. In other words, we are all stocked up for your visits, reservations and your orders via firstname.lastname@example.org, fulfilling wine orders across Canada in timely door-to-door delivery to Club members and non-club enthusiasts alike. And of course, our blue awning that shades the tables and sofas of our terrace are popular once more into this new season. Please note that there will not be a Ouest port release this year. Although we are sold out of our 3 year-in-barrel edition released last year, 2020 will see its second release, this time as our 5 year-in-barrel Ouest. There will be another surprise release for 2020 but let’s not get ahead of ourselves at this point. So, bon appétit everyone. Let the good times roll! We look forward to seeing you or hearing from you soon here at vinAmité, from our family to your family!
