Very exciting things have been happening at Clos du Soleil Winery. Last season they completed their new state-of-the-art winery and new tasting room. “When we re-open May 1 this will be the first full season for visitors to fully appreciate the new facility,” says Michael Clark, managing director and winemaker. “We are eager to welcome people, show them our new project and share our award-winning wines.”
Clos du Soleil has been fortunate to receive many awards for their wines over the years. “Most recently we submitted three wines to the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London, England, and won Silver medals for every one of our wines,” says Michael. “Additionally, last year, our flagship white wine, Capella, was selected to be served to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth at Canada House in London, UK, also a great honour.”
New Clos du Soleil wines are released on the Spring Equinox (March 20th) each year, and will be available for sale and tasting in the Tasting Room. “This includes our Fumé Blanc 2015, a wine which sells out very quickly every year,” says Michael. “Signature 2013, our well known award-winning Bordeaux-style blend, has also just been released and will be available to taste and purchase.”
Beginning May 1 the Clos du Soleil Tasting Room will be open 7 days per week, but before that date is open by appointment and people are encouraged to book a tasting.
“With friendly faces, a relaxed atmosphere, and a picnic area surrounded by our organic vineyard, a visit to our tasting room is not just about tasting wine,” says Michael. “It is about experiencing what makes Clos du Soleil such a unique place.”
