Wedding Planning
Planning a wedding can be a stressful and costly time as you try and get everything just perfect for that special day.
You have to plan just the right decorations, clothing, food, flowers, and all the rest of it including deciding what wine to serve.

Some frequently asked questions are:
What will it cost?
What do I need to do?
What wine do I serve?

The first thing you need to do is to make sure that it is legal to serve wine you have made yourself at the function and the venue where you are holding your reception will allow you to bring in and serve wine that you have made yourself.
Special Occasion License (SOL) holders may now serve UBrew/UVin or home-made wine, beer or cider made at their event. Events include weddings, birthdays, reunions, anniversaries, etc.
Please visit BC Liquor Store's website for more details.
Generally you need to have some of both red and white. We will be happy to make suggestions for you. General rule of the thumb is a half bottle per person.

The price of course will depend on quality and quantity of the wine you choose. We have wine kits you can make from $4.50-$6.50 per bottle the choice is yours.
The important thing to remember is you need to make it ahead of time so that whatever you choose has some time to age.

Welcome home all you winter snowbirds. Over the winter we have attended a wine education seminar and learned the top 5 wines sold in BC are:

1.  Apothic

2.  Cabernet Sauvignon

3.  Traminer Riesling

4.  Chilean Malbec

5.  Pinot Grigio

Good news is we have a comparable to all of the above, so come and see us and get your favourite started. We also learned more people are choosing to go with the Wine in a Box; and we can do that as well.

We have been experimenting with blending some whites and have a delicious blend of Italian Pinot Grigio and Viognier a perfect white for the patio, BBQ or chicken or just because.

With the new changes in the Liquor laws and the additions of the Special Occasion License we have been busy making wines for many happy bride and grooms this spring.  So if you know of a special occasion be sure to remember you may now be able to legally serve your U Vin wine or beer just check with us or the liquor store.

Warmer weather is coming which means it's the perfect time to get ready for all that summertime entertaining and we are here to help you get your batch of beer or wine started as we all know the Okanagan is a favourite place for visitors.

Winexpert - World Vineyard Wines
Westside U Brew Hops & Vines

Washington REISLING (World Vineyard) has a distinctive floral and green apple aroma mixed with mineral elements from its Washington vineyard, giving it a brisk, racy quality. Its high natural level of acidity enables it to balance a hint of residual sugar, setting off aromas of rose petal, apple, pear, peach and apricot and leading to a grand crisp finish of flinty mineral notes. Riesling is the longest-lived of all white wines.

California PINOT NOIR (World Vineyard) creates a lasting impression on the palate with an intense ripe-grape and black cherry aroma, accented by a spicy suggestion of cinnamon and mint. Medium-full bodied and rich but not heavy, it's perfectly balanced with alcohol acid and tannin working harmoniously, and has substantial flavour despite its delicacy. It has an appealing soft, velvety texture, like liquid silk gently caressing the palate.
