Walking into the tasting room at Kraze Legz Winery in Kaleden takes the visitor back in time to the Roaring ‘20’s. Kaleden’s first winery, Kraze Legz is located on a piece of land with a fantastic view and a lot of history. Their site has been producing fruit for over 100 years, first as an orchard and now planted to Vinifera grapes that are the core of the hand tended, harvested and processed award winning artisan wines. A new product from the winery this year is the Whisper Sister.

In the slang of the prohibition era, a Whisper Sister was the nickname given by the flappers to a female proprietor of a speakeasy, so this wine is named for winery co-owner Sue Thygesen. This unoaked Chardonnay is vinted in a semi sweet style and sold in a 375ml bottle. Made from 100% Estate grown fruit, the Whisper Sister is packed with flavours of tropical fruit, tangerine and lemon meringue, which would make it the perfect partner for a light dessert or a cheese plate.

On July 7th, Kraze Legz and Flambe Catering will be hosting an event for the Summer Wine Festival aptly named “Putting On The Ritz”. Join Gerry and Sue at the historic 1912 on the lake in Kaleden for a night of flapper fun with great food, their fantastic wines and jazz music.

Come peer through the keyhole of Gerry and Sue’s speakeasy winery and see what fun they’re having. If you tell them “Joe Sent Me”, they’ll even let you join their wine club, giving you access to their extremely limited release wines. All you have to do to join is pick up a case the next time you’re through. Let their fanciful name lure you in to enjoy some of their serious wines.
