Hillebrand Wine Club - September 2012

We got our Hillebrand Wine Club box today.  Gord and I have been members for about ten years.

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

For about $40 a month, we receive two bottles of wine in the mail every month.  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). 

Here's what we got this month ... Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 ($12.95) and Artist Series "Limited Edition" Pinot Gris 2011 ($18.95).

Included were recipes for Crab and Gouda Quiche (to match with the Pinot Gris) and Cauliflower and Truffle Soup (to match with the Cabernet Sauvignon).

Also included were five "Member for the Day" vouchers. Each voucher is for two guests and gives them access for the day to all the VIP perks Hillebrand Wine Club members enjoy (complimentary tour, wine tastings, etc.).

And finally, there were invitations to member exclusive weekends (tastings, brunches,dinners, etc.).

That's an awesome deal! Plus, it eliminates having to run to the store and pick out what you want.
