2019 Quotidien Brut 750 ml +31796 $18.96 (+GST)
2019 Quotidien Brut Half Bottle 375 ml +140500 $10.77 (+GST)
This wine was made in JoieFarm's pursuit of fun, accessible, everyday bubble drinking. Quotidien, meaning “your daily ration,” is made from Chardonnay and Riesling aged sur lie prior to secondary fermentation by charmat method. This bubbles hangs its hat on two of BC's signature varietals and Canada's potential to be a serious player in the sparkling wine world.
2020 Tiny Bubbles Can 250ml (flat of 24) +63795 $6.56 (+GST)
Tiny Bubbles is a new wine that Heidi specifically made to be enjoyed in our new premium 250 mL can format. Made from Viognierand Sauvignon Blanc, it is meant to be a fun, fresh wine intended to be enjoyed with summer-time fun. It has a decidedly tropical, tiki-esque vibe with savoury pineapple flavours coming from the ripe Viognier grown in Oliver. The lime-y, fresh gooseberry notes come from the Sauvignon Blanc which was picked early in September to keep this summer-banger at a moderate 11.7% to be enjoyed righ out of the can

2020 A Noble Blend Can 250ml (flat of 24) +96597 $6.56 (+GST)
2019 A Noble Blend KEG 19.5 L +520569 $435.99 (+GST)
We make A Noble Blend in the spirit of Edelzwicker or Gentil, the traditional Germanic-varietal blend of the Alsace region of France. The literal translation of Edelzwicker is “a noble blend” – Noble, also happens to be Heidi’s family name. Our original intent in choosing to produce this proprietary blend was our knowledge that many of the oldest plantings in this valley were Germanic varietals, which have proven to be extremely successful in this climate. A Noble Blend is a blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois, and Muscat.
2019 Un-oaked Chardonnay 750 ml +146456 $18.96 (+GST)
2019 Un-oaked Chardonnay KEG 19.5 L +565846 $399.99 (+GST)
Un-oaked Chardonnay is a crisp, pure expression of the Chardonnay grape. We ferment in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to preserve the clean, fruit-forward nature of our Chardonnay and then employ lees contact to add a fresh briny character and texture. Our inspiration is derived from our love of the famous un-oaked Chardonnays of Chablis and the lesser- known wines of Macon-Clessé.
2018 En Famille Reserve Riesling 750 ml +799460 $19.51 (+GST)
Riesling - with its bright acidity, restrained sweetness and moderate alcohol levels - can be the ultimate example of balance in wine. We make this wine in a Spätlese style, just off-dry enough to keep it mouth-wateringly juicy. Made from one of the oldest vineyards in British Columbia, these 40 year-old vines create a wine of great complexity that will be long-lived. This Riesling is aged six months on lees and one year in bottle before release.
2018 En Famille Reserve Chardonnay 750ml (6-Pack Cases) +150862 $22.92 (+GST)
Our Reserve Chardonnay is a 10-barrel selection from our most prized vineyard on the Skaha Bluff, blended to create an indigenous expression of Chardonnay inspired by the wines of the Côte de Beaune and the Mâconnais. The mouthfeel, length and complexity are enhanced by extended lees contact and bi-weekly bâtonnage.
2020 Rosé 750 ml +511469 $17.60 (+GST)
2020 Rosé Can 250ml (flat of 24) +63803 $6.56 (+GST)
We make Rosé because we love drinking it and believe it to be the most versatile wine to pair with food. Our inspiration for this wine is the Pinot Noir & Gamay based rosés of the Loire Valley, particularly those of Sancerre and Anjou. We appreciate the moderate alcohol and natural acidity that sets them apart from their southern Mediterranean counterparts. Pinot Noir gives our Rosé strawberry and Montmorency cherry flavours; Gamay contributes black cherry, spice and adds a little more texture and weight to the mid-palate.
2018 PTG 750 ml +823799 $19.97(+GST)
2019 PTG Half Bottle 375 ml +75054 $10.78 (+GST)
PTG stands for Passe-Tout-Grains, a classic but little-known wine of Burgundy that combines the elegant Pinot Noir of the Côte d’Or with the rich, spicy Gamay of Beaujolais. We work with Pinot Noir and Gamay because we feel that they excel in the cool, desert climate of south-central British Columbia. The superiority of Burgundian varietals to our terroir is undeniable and, equally important, is their compatibility with Pacific Northwest cuisine.
2018 Pinot Noir 750 ml +885145 $22.91 (+GST)
2018 Pinot Noir KEG 19.5L +484279 $530.00 (+GST)
We work with Pinot Noir because we feel that it naturally excels in the cool-climate desert of the Okanagan; our diurnal temperature swings extend our harvest and ripening period well into 60 days past veraison to create Pinot Noir with great phenolic ripeness and flavour development while maintaining bright acidity. This Pinot Noir is made in a fruit-forward style for early drinking and balances pleasant acidity with bright cherry fruit.
2017 En Famille Reserve Pinot Noir (6-Pack Cases) 750 ml +675900 $34.71 (+ GST)
At its best, cool-climate Pinot Noir is bright, focused and elegant by nature. This Pinot Noir is powerful, incredibly perfumed and complex. While we draw our inspiration from the wines of Burgundy, it is the lesser-known villages of Fixin, Santenay, and Mercurey that are most influential. Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a selection of our twelve best barrels, with the grapes sourced from the Naramata Bench, Summerland and the Skaha Bluff.
