Last minute Christmas gifts from BC’s best wineries
If you’re still fretting about getting the perfect host/hostess gift, look no further than our own backyard. BC wineries have you covered with a variety of gifts and of course, delicious wine:
Vintage Bub is bottle aged five years which brings to life its earthy, wild-mushroom bread dough nose with fresh green apple peel and citrus notes. This Bub remained on its lees in tirage for 52 months. It’s a scene stealer that is sure to surprise the BC wine doubters. Available for purchase online or onsite at the winery for $34.90.
Singletree Winery’s Wine Jellies
Unable to keep them on the shelves last year upon their initial release, fans are elated that Singletree’s jellies are back! These locally made treats are the perfect hostess gift, present for a foodie, or stocking stuffer. Made with Singletree Winery’s signature blends, of course. Serve with charcuterie, on toast, as a glaze, or even in a salad dressing. Available onsite at the winery for $7.50.
Blue Grouse Estate Winery candles
Blue Grouse’s beautiful new candles are entirely repurposed, handcrafted in Kelowna, and made of 100% soy wax. You can get 100 hours of burn time! Gift to your mom, dinner party host, or best friend in a holiday care package. The scents are wine themed and are offered onsite at the winery for $23.00.
Blue Grouse’s Paula Sparkling
Who doesn’t love to hear a bottle pop at a holiday party? The winery’s super limited bubbly is well balanced and off dry. Paula starts with aroma of pear, biscuit and some earthy mushroom followed by flavours of green apple and toast with a fine mousse on the palate. It finished with elderflower and a lingering lemon-lime citrus. Pair with grilled peaches, goat cheese or oysters. Available online and at the winery for $31.00.
