The weather forecast is…it is time to put away gardening tools & get your corkscrew out…Rose wine season is here!  Wineries all across Ontario are now releasing their delicious Rosé wines to quench your thirst this summer.  While it might be raining this week, get ready for when the heat wave hits.

To make summer livin’ easy, we are offering a Bouquet of Rosés – wines that is – featuring the best Rosé wines made in Ontario.  Straight from the winery to your fridge.  Our team of Savvy Sommeliers have taste-tested 50+ Rosé wines and selected the best ones for you to enjoy this summer.  Dry. Crisp. Zippy. Delicious!  Each month a different assortment of Rosé wines made at boutique wineries across Ontario will arrive at your home, desk, deck…or even your cottage dock!

Take your pick…

Order an assortment of 12 bottles (a big bouquet) or a mixed 6 pack (a small bouquet).  Every month is different.  Deadline to order the June assortment is Friday June 9th.
