Update November 26: Further delays in Montreal have delayed the arrival of the juice to the week of November 30. We apologize for the delay. 

____________________________________________________________________

Well, 2020 has been a year.

This year we were unable to go to Europe to collect the juices ourself. Thankfully, we have great friends and partners in Europe who were able to get everything prepared (in record time we might add). So, we are happy to announce that we will have a full load of fresh juice for this year!!!

When it comes to the juices, we're happy to report that the summer in Europe was very hot and dry which is fantastic for the grapes. The juices are higher in sugar in previous years, which will lead to higher alcohol, and fuller bodied wines! We're very excited. 

Some of the reds look really big this year! I am looking forward to trying out the Cabernet, as well as the Barbera! For the Whites, I think one of the first wines I will make is a medium oaked Chardonnay. 

We expect the 2020 juices to arrive in mid November, for wines made on-site this means the wines will be ready after the holidays. 

2020 Pre-Sale

Starting today we are offering a pre-sale on all of our new juices! From now until they arrive in mid November we're offering 5% of our current prices. 

How to Order?

Simply visit, email, or call us to reserve your batch of the 2020 harvest.

We shop online, and we know how much it sucks to pay for shipping. For the past couple of years we have done everything we can to keep shipping costs as low as possible, but it can be challenging to offer competitive rates as a small business. 

We have been hard at work thinking on ways we can reduce shipping costs for our clients. Starting today, here are some ways we can get your order to you for free or at a very reduced price.

Spring 2021 COVID Policies

Hello everyone! As I am sure you have heard, the Ontario government is in the process of beginning to re-open the province. Starting the day after Family Day (Feb 16) retail shops, among other businesses will be allowed to re-open in some capacity.

The staff at KJ have discussed the merits of re-opening, and we have decided to delay re-opening our store until at least March 1st. We’re concerned about the safety of our staff and the higher risk demographics that we serve. We want to see how the next couple of weeks go, especially with the new variants beginning to spread. We may yet delay our re-opening past March 1st and will update our status accordingly.

We will continue to take orders over the phone or on our online website. We will also continue to bottle wine for our clients. We are striving to offer the best service possible while also keeping everyone safe.
