Red & White Wines
Cru Select - This is our European style wine. The flavours are more complex and subtle, but ageing is necessary for it to be at its best. The Cru Select wines each have a country or locale name attached to the type, e.g Australian Shiraz. See Cru Select page for complete list available. $154.60
En Primeur - Elegance defined. Borne of unprecedented research and development, and most importantly, a passionate love of wine. $ 194.40
Orchard Breezin' - A refreshing alternative to wine or coolers. They are a perfect balance of fruit and wine - not too sweet, not too dry. $ 96.40

Wine from your OWN Fruit
A large part of our business is making wine from people's own fruit. It can be from your own garden (plum and raspberry are the most popular) or from wild fruit (Cortes abounds with wild [organic] blackberries!). We also make a lot of apple cider from local apples. Wine -- $75.00; Cider -- $60.00.
