Speaking of Wine...
 
 
Dear Jamie,
 
We hope you are having a great Summer.
If you are an Italian Dolcetto lover and find you are going through your reserves quicker than expected, you'll be happy to know we just received a very small number of these Limited Edition kits. They are available immediately for purchase and will go fast.
On another note, now is the time to start thinking about and placing your holiday wine order! Can you believe it - where does the time go?

Make Great Wine Even Better!
 
When you've visited JUST FINE WINE you've likely noticed the large oak barrels lined up in the bottling room. Have you ever wondered just exactly what they do besides look kind of cool?
Simply put, placing wine in an oak barrel can improve the quality of your wine. Oak's delicate vanilla scent and complex toastiness enhances the fruit flavours and aromas already present. In addition, even a short time in a barrel can mature a wine faster than a longer period of time in a regular carboy. Barrel Aging can turn an average wine into a prizewinner and is often a common denominator in wines that reach beyond the ordinary.
Commonly, only full-bodied red wines and richly flavoured whites (such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc) are used for Barrel Aging. To a red, it gives a softness and complexity that adds great character. For some whites, it can increase aromatic qualities that make the wine truly special. The natural process of evaporation allows the wine to concentrate its flavor and aroma. As well, small amounts of oxygen are allowed to pass through the barrel and acts as a softening agent upon the tannins of the wine.

JUST FINE WINE offers select varieties for Barrel Aging, available systematically throughout the year ~ typically every two months.
The program is open to anyone and is especially popular with true wine lovers. The wines selected for the program are of the top caliber and the process is an additional $40 per batch (23 Litres). Availability is limited and space fills up quickly, so be sure to inquire about reserving yours today.

Wine Tasting...The Best of the Best!
 
Reserve your spot now! JUST FINE WINE'S Annual Limited Edition Wine Tasting Event will take place Sunday, November 1st at 2pm in the Wilson Centre (in the Port Coquitlam Recreation Centre).
 
Once again, three reds and two whites are set to be released. The great news is that this year Winexpert is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their Limited Edition program. To commemorate, the five Limited Edition Wines will be "The Best Of The Best" of the last twenty years! The bad news is you're going to have to wait a little bit longer to find out just what those will be. The new Limited Edition varieties will be unveiled in September and we'll be sure to pass that information on to you. So stay tuned for the big announcement!

Winexpert's Limited Edition Wines are announced in the Fall and released systematically in January, February, March and April. The Wine Tasting allows you to sample commercial equivalents of the Limited Editions, enjoy food/wine pairings, and mingle with fellow wine-lovers in a fun and casual atmosphere. Call or drop by the shop to reserve your spot today (no deposit necessary).
