Gord and I have been members of the Hillebrand Wine Club for about ten years.
For about $40 a month, we receive two bottles of wine in the mail every month ... so much more fun to receive wine in the mail than a bill! Plus anytime we go to Niagara-on-the-Lake, we pop into the Hillebrand store and get free samples (otherwise we'd have to pay for them).
If experiencing a new wine inspires and arouses your curiosity, then join us for an ongoing journey. The Hillebrand Wine Club is an opportunity for you to explore and enjoy wines that intrigue you, and share them as their complex secrets unfold.
Every month our winemaker carefully selects two bottles of Hillebrand VQA wine. Two wines you may not have selected on your own. Consider this your opportunity to discover new tastes and expand your palate with new flavours and sensations.
Included in your package will be detailed tasting notes by our Winemaker Craig McDonald, and inspiring recipe cards created by Chef Frank Dodd of Hillebrand Winery Restaurant that give you food experiences to complement your wine.
Wine Club makes a great gift to a special friend or to yourself, and it’s a convenient way to fill any wine cellar with some of the best wines produced in Canada.
* Available to Ontario residents only
They tried to deliver this month's wine to us yesterday but we were at work so we picked them up at the post office today.
Every month, the bottles are different but there is usually a white wine and a red wine. Here are this month's ... a Trius Cabernet Franc 2010 and a Trius Rosé 2011.
Also included were recipes for Chicken and Sweet Corn Pot Pie to go with the Trius Cabernet Franc and Caramel Candy Chili Popcorn to go with the Trius Rosé.
Update: The Rosé was yummy!
