Don’t forget Dad this Father’s Day!  With a gift certificate from DiVine Wines, you can get him started on one of the fastest growing hobbies in North America…Beer Making! Dad’s not a hobbyist? Then our On-Premise Beer Making Service could be your better choice.  Either way, his friends won’t need to know just how easy it was to make, and he can take bragging rights to a whole new level on game night when he breaks out the beer he crafted himself…all thanks to you.

Great tasting beer with minimal effort.  Lager, Ale, Cerveza, Pilsner and many more styles are Dad’s to choose from.  Click HERE to view our complete line-up of beer offerings.  All beer kits yield 23 Liters / 6 Gallons of Premium Micro-Brewed Quality Beer and are ready in only 4 weeks, just in time for Summer.

New Products

Vintners Reserve

We are pleased to announce the launch of two outstanding new VINTNERS RESERVE products. Available July 1st, 2011.

Diablo Rojo – Dark purple in colour with a nose of blackberry jam melded with creamy vanilla aromas and a touch of tobacco. Rich in the mouth, with gently smooth tannins and rich, ripe plum and berry flavours. The finish is long and fruit-filled, with the perfect amount of toasty oak. This off dry red wine is perfect for enjoying right away, delicious with robust foods and excellent all on its own.

Ángel Blanco – An easy drinking, well-rounded white wine, with appealing fruit flavours and aromas. Rich and boldly fruity from a multi-vinifera blend that delivers up a floral aromatic nose and a fine mix of peachy, honey, pineapple fruit finishing with a perfect balance of acidity and fruitiness. Serve well chilled before dinner or pair it up with spicy foods to tame the heat and compliment your cuisine.

Chocolate Raspberry Port Returns

For a limited time only, Winexpert is offering three great products for you to make and enjoy this fall. We are pleased to announce the return of Chocolate Raspberry Port and Okanagan Peach Icewine and back by popular demand Blackberry Port.  Click HERE for more info on these three very unique dessert wines.

All Selection Speciale wine kits: $99.99 take home, $169.99 made in-store. (includes: synthetic corks, labels, shrink caps, storage, filtering, bottle sanitizing and all applicable taxes.  Bottles extra.)  Yields 11.5 liters of liquid decadence.

Don’t miss out!  Pre-order deadline is Wednesday, August 4th.  Arrives mid-September.  Will be bottled in time for Christmas.  That’s right, I said the “C” word in June!  We know that nobody wants to think about it at this time of year, but when it comes to wine, you’ve really got to think ahead.  Come December, you’ll be glad you did.

Also returning this Fall in limited quantities, will be Winexpert’s Selection International French Gamay Nouveau.  More details to follow next month.

Monthly Tip

Wine on the deck

If you want to enjoy a nice glass of wine out on the patio or deck, but find the bugs are just too annoying, try this simple yet effective trick to get rid of those pesky critters.  Simply take an egg crate (not the styrofoam kind) and light one end on fire for a few seconds.  Blow out the flame and place the smoldering crate in a smudge pot.  The smoke emitted from this keeps bugs away and one egg crate will smolder for up to half an hour.  Alternatively, a coffee cup tray from Tim’s is equally effective.  I personally tried this on the weekend and it really works. 🙂
