Eau Vivre winery invites you to celebrate life with their new wine club, the “Celebrate Life Wine Club” members will receive shipments twice yearly of either 6 or 12 bottles. Need more wine? Eau Vivre will give you 10% off additional purchases when you add them to the regular shipments. It’s a great way to build life into your cellar and ensure that you will be able to get some of the Similkameen Valley’s most sought-after wines. Other great benefits for club members will be announced in future club newsletters.

The current releases from Eau Vivre are sure to please all palates for celebrating life. The single-variety wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer offer a full range of profiles from crisp and dry to smooth and off-dry. The beautiful summertime blend “Cinq Blanc” takes freshness to a new level and will remind you of summertime all year long.

The structure and balance of the reds in the portfolio are entirely befitting a winery that has won the Similkameen Valley’s only Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence in Wine in BC – twice. Pinot Noir is light, fruity, and elegantly balanced while the Cabernet Franc speaks louder with darker and more aggressive fruit flavours. Aged in a unique combination of 80% French, 10% American, and 10% Hungarian oak barrels, the Cabernet Franc also offers a degree of complexity while retaining a softer edge than most other versions of this variety. The next vintage of the red blend “Buddhafull” is set for release only when it is deemed to be ready.
