Spring has sprung at Rollingdale...

Hard to believe that it's only March! I just got back in from taking a walk around the winery and seeing the arrowleaf flowers starting to blossom made me smile!

Our picnic area is open so pack a lunch, come by, grab your favourite bottle of Rollingdale wine, and enjoy the lake view from our picnic benches :)

Here's a sneak peek into the filtering process:

After the wines get filtered today, we will be bottling next week - stay tuned as we will upload pictures of that too.

Meet our Wine Shop Manager, Giles...

Meet our Wine Shop Manager, Giles!

This friendly face is one of the guys you often find working in our tasting room. 

How did you become the wine shop manager at Rollingdale? 
 
Giles: I worked in the vineyard all summer fighting with...I mean tending to the vines.  In Fall 2015, I was offered this position, and was only too happy to continue with the team here.

Best part about your job?
 
Working at a winery?....DUH!!! But seriously, I get a chance to learn and experience all aspects of the operation from vineyard management, through wine making, to wine distribution.
 
Your favourite wine?
 
Our Blanc de Merlot.  There is a nasty rumour that I still have some at home.  NOT TRUE!!

Why would you recommend Rollingdale Winery ?
 
You get to try some of the cleanest and finest wines around, and usually there is something unique as well.  In addition, you often get to talk to our winemaker, Steve, personally.

Best time or days to visit the winery?

We are here 7 days a week...there is always something that needs to be done either in the cellar or in the vineyard. Best time is when you feel like dropping by...there is no bad time to enjoy wine.  Of course it is a lot warmer April to October, but in the off-season it's a lot easier for us to give every visitor a little extra attention because it isn't so busy.

A SWEET Sunday!

Yesterday was our 2016 Sip With Your Sweetheart event and the cellar team had a blast with all the visitors.

We paired our 2013 Fort (Port-style wine) with donuts from Dolicious. Even the world’s biggest donut fan, Homer, stopped in for a sip!

 

At the end of the day we served about 350 mouth water bismark donuts!

Thank you everyone who dropped in for a treat, and we look forward to the event next year.  Here are other great photos from yesterday:

January Winery Photos...

We got out the camera recently and took some nice Winter photos of the winery.

It's not very often you get sun and snow on the same day so we thought we had to seize the opportunity!

Remember the wine shop is open everyday through the Winter season so come by and see us for a tasting :)
