We are proud to announce our 8th annual July Wine Sale. Starting Monday, July 24 we will be offering 20% off five of our wines made in store, and 10% off the same juices for home winemakers. This is our biggest sale of the year! This years juice list is quite a bit different from last year, our two most popular white wines are making the sale for the first time. There is no limit on how much can be ordered, feel free to stock up!
The juices available are:
|Sauvignon Blanc||Pinot Noir|
This sale is a great opportunity to try new batches, blend wines into unusual combinations, or even add oak. There are an amazing amount of combinations to be discovered. If in doubt, we here at KJ can always help you pick the best option. We like to get crazy here and try different blends all the time.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you must try the Moscato made off-dry. This is a sweeter wine, with notes of honey, grapefruit and pineapple. It has just enough acidity to be well balanced and something that is designed for patios. We find this one is drinkable right away, no need to cellar!
For a red, I can’t help but recommend a blend of Pinot Noir and Barbera. This is a go-to combination for a number of our customers and for good reason. It ends up being a medium bodied wine with smooth notes of plum, cherry and earth. This blend works well unoaked or oaked too.
For wines being made on site, orders will need to be placed in person at our store. Alternatively, wines can be ordered over the phone, but, the buyer will need to send a representative into our store to pour yeast in satisfy the legal criteria for a ferment on premise. Wines will take 6 weeks from the date ordered, right now we’re planning to have all of the July Wine Sale wines ready for September 12.
For juices being taken home, orders can be made in person or on online store.
This year’s July Wine Sale runs from Monday, July 24 to Monday, July 31.
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.
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.
