Serendipity Winery has never shied away from embracing change. In fact, embracing change has been a guiding philosophy of the winery since it first opened. And this summer will see a big change at Serendipity, as the main winery will reopen this August with a new wineshop, a breathtaking patio, and beautiful landscaping to welcome awestruck guests. Until this time, the winery will of course still be open to the public at a temporary facility on the property.

Such changes of course, call for proper celebrations! Fortunately the opening of the new wineshop will coincide with the release of Serendipity’s new sparkling wine, a Chardonnay-based bubbly made in the traditional methods of the Champagne region of France.

August will be a month of festivities and feasts in more ways than one. The winery will be hosting its annual Movie in the Vineyard night on August 13th. For only $25 the popular event allows patrons to set-up a romantic picnic among the Pinot Noir rows (or if they rather, lay claim to a table) and enjoy the classic Leonardo DiCaprio film “Catch me if you can”, projected onto a silver screen placed above the vines. And on August 20th wine club members will be treated to a four course meal on site that will include library pulls of Serendipity’s past vintages. It’s the next step for the popular Naramata winery, and it welcomes you to be a part of it.

2012 Next Step – $25.00

Cellared for four years in both French and American oak, this Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc blend shows a prominent note of fig that’s accompanied by hints of cocoa and toffee.
