All new vintages of whites are now available at Hidden Chapel Winery, as well as their new releases. This summer, look forward to a new red called Hallelujah 2018, which is a Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a dry red with hints of dark plum, dark cherry and blackberry, with a suggestion of rose petal on the nose. It would pair well with red meats, stronger cheeses, portobello mushroom dishes and so much more.
Hidden Chapel also has a new sparkling release, Honeymoon. It goes along with White Wedding, Blushing Bride and Made of Honour. Honeymoon can turn every day into a special occasion. “It’s like our White Wedding wine, which is a Sauvignon Blanc/Viognier/Riesling, only this sparkling blend has more Riesling,” said Hidden Chapel’s Deborah Wilde. “It has a bit of citrus, green apple and gooseberry. It’s a really fresh sparkling wine, great for the patio, and pairs well with almost everything summer.”
Hidden Chapel Winery has been busy over the past couple of months with lots of online sales. Hidden Chapel Cellar Club shipments went out in June. “When you join the Cellar Club, you get the new releases sooner, and you have access to library wines and free shipping to most parts of Canada,” said Wilde.
Hidden Chapel Cellar Club
Each Cellar Club shipment has 12 bottles of Hidden Chapel wines and includes a combination of current and library vintages available at the time. You can choose 12 white/rosé, 12 mixed white/rosé/red, or 12 reds. “Great wine at a great price isn’t the only benefit,” said Wilde. A Cellar Club membership also entitles you to:
• Discounts (depending on your membership level) off any wine purchased at the winery;
• Invitations to special events; and
• A newsletter with all the upcoming vintages and news.
