Seasonally Available Wines

North Vines offers two award winning Brands of seasonally available wines.

 

From November to May, every year, both Hightail and Restricted Quantity are ultra premium, worldly sourced grapes of amazing quality. Our suggestion is, if you are interested in these wines, be certain to sign up for our newsletter service, you will then be notified first when they become available. We also have a sign up sheet for first availability.

Barrel Aged

Here at North Vines, our fleet of oak barrels is rarely empty. Most of our customers know the benefits of oak barrel aging and take advantage of it as often as possible. “Barrel-aging” projects are run through-out the year where we age multiple batches of selected wines in our fleet of oak barrels.

After 2 – 6 months, those wines are ready to be bottled and taken home by you.

Ask about joining our seasonal “barrel project” mailing list or about our mini-barrels for year round use, and take your wine to an amazing plain.


Wines from your Fruit

The popularity of quality wine from locally grown fruit like Blueberry, Raspberry, Huckleberry, Haskup, Rhubarb and on, is at an all time high. The resulting quality is also at an all time high.

North Vines can take your picked, cleaned and frozen fruit and transform it into 30 bottles of high quality table wine. Call or drop in for details.
