The GOODS from JoieFarm

Vancouver, BC | Upon the occasion of our 10th anniversary, we are pleased to announce the release of the 2013 Vintage of JoieFarm A Noble Blend, Rosé, Un-Oaked Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat and Pinot Blanc. The wines are now available to order online from our website JoieFarm.com by clicking on the Buy Our Wines link. Shipping is free to your door throughout most of Canada. Please contact us for shipping charges to outlying Canadian areas. Shipping is not available to the USA or internationally.

A note about the vintage itself, the 2013 growing year was long and flavourful. It was our second bumper crop in a row and the vines have really outdone themselves in terms of quantity and quality. The vintage shows our regional trademark of excellent acidity and reasonable alcohols as well as great intensity of flavour, the benefit of a nice long growing season and a cool dry October.

Chefs Dana Ewart and Cameron Smith of the Okanagan’s Joy Road Catering were on hand to pair their always marvellous “cuisine de terroir” with the wines, and it all went down in the charming suite above Le Marche St. George. Have a look and a taste…
