So long as this pandemic lasts, we’ll be opening our virtual doors!

There’s no need to bundle up and brave the cold to attend Savvy Events this year. Instead, we’ll be hunkering down and welcoming you into our own homes through events like our Meet the Makers Virtual Tastings. Every month, we invite you to join us online to meet winemakers, cidermakers & cheesemakers from across Canada to chat about their latest creations, which are featured in our ongoing Savvy Care Packages & ‘of-the-month’ clubs. We’ll send you the bottles in advance so that you can sample the bottles during the Tasting. You’ll get the interesting backstory on their business, this year’s harvest and a special insight from the people who know it best…you might even meet their pets while online!(This happened already!)The makers enjoy ‘meeting’ you online too.

“Tonight was so much fun, Debbie. Thanks for including my wines in the Savvy Virtual Wine Tasting Series. What an awesome and engaging group. I can’t wait to welcome you all in person the next time you’re in the Okanagan.”


-Jeff Hundertmark-head winemaker at Mt Boucherie & Rust Wines in BC!

Brothers Kal and Nirmal Gidda opened Mt. Boucherie Family Estate Winery & recently celebrated their 10th anniversary. They are a true family business success story!  Located in West Kelowna’s Lakeview Heights area, this winery is only a five minute drive from downtown Kelowna, British Columbia across the scenic Okanagan Lake floating bridge.

Winemaker Jim Faulkner and his team, have grown Mt. Boucherie over the years to produce a total of 21 reds, whites and Icewines amounting to 25,000 cases!  Semillion is a rare grape variety in British Columbia vineyards, yet Jim has created a stunning wine.

Cheers & Enjoy!

LCBO # 279364

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Full bodied white wine with smooth texture & aromas of fresh apple tart with a shortbread crust, beeswax with some refreshing acidity. Smooth texture in the mouth with a full bodied nutmeg & white pepper finish that goes on forever.

Food Pairing Suggestions: Serve with paella, blackened catfish, pan fried scallops or smoke salmon.

Want to buy this wine?  

Run. . . don’t walk to your nearest LCBO as this wine is now on the store shelves in Vintages.  We would strongly recommend to buy two or three or five! bottles because this wine will sell quickly. Once it is gone at the LCBO, you will have to contact the winery directly to arrange an order.  Enjoy!
