Purchasing and renovating a elebrating their 10-year anniversary, Sonoran Estate Winery has been treating guests to non-stop fun all summer. Fans have been snapping up great in-store specials, savouring the new Full Moon Bistro lunch menu, and kicking back for entertaining karaoke weekend afternoons.

In honour of the big ‘One-Oh’, Sonoran is releasing their first ever Port-style wine and two traditionally made sparklings (white and rosé), rounding out their diverse portfolio of delicious white, red and dessert wines.

This will be the last season for Sonoran’s Gartrell Road location. October 31, the winery is returning to their original wine shop at 21606 Bridgeman Road, north of Summerland. They’ll be open every Saturday 12-4 until the tasting room gets back into full swing next spring.
“It’s been busy moving locations. We’re glad to be back at the spot of our original vineyards,” says proprietor Ada Smits. “It has gorgeous lake views, beautiful decks, and our on-site Windmill B&B. Over the years, we have done well. Our customers love our product. We thank them for their loyalty in helping us grow our business.”

Tickets for Sonoran’s Annual Winemaker’s Dinner held October 8th at the Gartrell Road winery location are still available, but register soon to avoid disappointment.
