New at The Vineyard

The new Twisted Mist FAB’s (fermented adult beverages):

Lime Margarita: Tart lime and tequila flavours form the base of this classic margarita. A touch of sweetness offsets the sour citrus but still leaves that zesty lime explosion. Enjoy over crushed ice.

Hard Pink Lemonade: Don't be fooled by the pale pink hue - this Hard Pink Lemonade packs a punch. Fresh lemons mix with notes of pink grapefruit and candied peel, and a light sweetness softens the lemon pucker making for an easy-drinking treat. Serve this cooler-style drink ice cold on a hot afternoon.

A great seasonal addition to our Selection premium wine kits:

French Rose: The ultimate food-friendly wine is back. Our crisp, off-dry rosé from Southern France is the perfect pairing for any meal. Pairing possibilities run the gamut from light salads to spicy meats from the grill - definitely a wine to keep well-stocked and ready all summer. Serve chilledIsland Mist Raspberry Peach Sangria: Sweet, ripe raspberries mix with juicy peach undertones for the perfect summer sangria - fruity, refreshing, and easy drinking.

This addition continues the awesome example of our World Series Vintners Reserve 4 week wine kit line:

California Muscato: Lush, fruity, and delightfully sweet with juicy peach and tropical fruit flavours.

2012 LE Program almost over

April features the Nebbiolo with grape skins. This is last of these Limited Edition Special wine kits of the 2012 LE program. If you ordered the Nebbiolo, it is now available in the store. If you did not get in on ordering this special wine kit (or any of the other 4 wines) please check with us as we may have a few extras available.

On Sale for all of April

The following wine kits are 10% off during the month of April:

World Vineyard Australian Shiraz: Australia's route to fame on the world wine stage, Shiraz from Down Under offers lush berry aromas that beg for a hearty whiff. A wine of ripe fullness, its concentrated blackberry fruits and fragrant spiciness are a delight on the tongue. It has the uncanny quality of allowing early consumption despite its complexity and bigness'. Robust and lively, Australian Shiraz is a savoury treat.

World Vineyard Australian Chardonnay: Supple and slightly buttery, this wine lingers on the palate with layers of toast and spice. Extremely versatile with foods, this is the red wine' of white wines, combining beautifully with grilled pork, chicken, fish, salads and cream-based pasta sauces.

Vintners Reserve Pinot Noir: Richly complex with fruity as well as spicy characteristics, the strawberry-blackberry nose leads to a velvety full finish. Ageing uncovers further complexity.

Vintners Reserve Pinot Blanc: Medium-bodied with lightly fruity aroma, soft flavours and a velvety mouth-feel. Refreshing both as a sipping wine, and as a match with cream sauce dishes, light cheeses and delicate meats.

plus two of our Chai Maison, value priced 4 week wine kits:

Chai Maison Cabernet Sauvignon: A value priced 4 week wine kit.
Chai Maison Sauvignon Blanc: Another value priced 4 week wine kit

The Vineyard is Growing

As some of you already know we are expanding. Sales have increased significantly this year, in fact so much that we need more space.

So we have inked the deal to take over the additional bay behind us effective this summer. This means we will double our space, increase our inventory and increase the great customer service we have delivered Calgarians for the last 30 years.

Help Needed: This also means we need more staff.

We are looking for 2 – 3 part time workers; starting immediately.This is great opportunity to join Calgary’s leading retailer of wine and beer making products and service.

If you are willingly to work weekdays on flexible shifts, able to physically handle stock and inventory, able to learn more about making beer and wine, we WANT to talk to you.
