The 2020 July Wine Sale

It's the 11th Annual July Wine Sale

We are proud to announce our 11th annual July Wine Sale. This year we're starting it early! On Monday, July 13 we will be offering 20% off five of our wines made in-store and 10% off most of those juices for home winemakers. This is our biggest sale of the year! There is no limit on how much can be ordered, feel free to stock up!

The Juices Available Are:

Whites: Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc

Reds: Valpolicella, Special Red Blend (not available for home winemakers)

What is the Special KJ Blend?

Ohhhh we're excited for this one. First, a little inside baseball. Normally we put on sale the juices we have the most of in an effort to clear up inventory for the next years harvest. This year however, our inventory is low on a lot of wines. So, in order to spread out the sales across many of our juices we are making a special red blend. 

This blend will consist of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Barbera. We will be adding a moderate amount of oak to it to add a bit more body and complexity. The end results is going to be a big, bold red with tonnes of ageabilty. Internally, this is one of our favourite blends the staff makes, and we think you guys will love it. Because this is a special blend, we will not be allowing any modifications like extra oaking, or different yeast strains. Also, because this is a blend we are not able to offer it to home winemakers. 

The Other Wines on Sale

Looking for something a bit lighter than the blend? this years Valpolicella is a lighter bodied wine with medium fruit notes, a bit of raspberry and a crisp finish. Ideal with lighter dinners or a hot summers night. It also makes a killer Sangria!

For whites wines, the Pinot Blanc is a classic summer white. It is very light, crisp and easy drinking. Ideal for long nights on a patio.

The Pinot Grigio is your classic Italian Pinot Gris, it is full of crisp citrus notes. You can really detect the lemon and lime. It's by far our most popular white wine - a total crowd pleaser. 

We like to blend the two Pinot's together - you get a really fun crisp white wine when mixing those two together. 

The Sauvignon Blanc is Devon's favourite white, this year it has a great blend of tropical fruit and grassiness. It has great ageability, but is also really enjoyable young too. 

All in all, there are a lot of great options this year!

Hey Paul, the ageability of this would be around 2-4 years depending on the conditions the wine is stored in. If the wine is stored somewhere cool and dark, I see 3-4 years being about the peak for it!

Please advise the blend of the Super Tuscan …and what “tonnes of agability” might mean in years
