Our core collection of straightforward, small lot wines made in-house from 100% BC grapes.

VUW- Reliance Red-Studio Shot Front

Reliance Red 2015

A hands-off testament to the North Okanagan’s distinct cool climate, Reliance Red strikes a fine balance between structure and freshness. Made from sustainably-farmed Merlot grown in the clay sub-soils of Serendipity’s 10-acre vineyard on the north end of the Naramata Bench. Crafted by hand, including a traditional basket-press, in extremely small lots at the Vancouver Urban Winery in the Settlement Building. Finished unfined and unfiltered.

Deep ruby shading to purple. A complex nose of ripe plum, black cherry, sweet spice, and sage. The palate is dense, but refreshing, with fine tannins giving way to a long, juicy finish.

Available at the Belgard Kitchen by the glass, by the bottle, and to go.

Pinot Gris 2015sold out

Fresh, crisp and incredibly vibrant notes hit the nose. Just-ripe granny smith apple on the palate combined with stone fruits, pink grapefruit and lime zest. The finish lingers on the palate and contains just enough acidity to clean the palate for the next sip.

Merlot 2014sold out

The VUW 2014 Merlot is deceptively easy-going. It disguises depth of character under a charming exterior. Hand-crafted from self-rooted vines in a single, south-facing vineyard on the stony slopes of the upper Similkameen bench the wine layers dark cherry fruit over a core of sweet spice. This is a go-to wine with lots going on.

Rose’ 2015sold out

Pink wine is life. The inaugural vintage of VUW Rosé, from fruit grown in the iconic, limestone-rich Sperling vineyard, slides in gracefully beside the most elegant rosés of Provence though an extra burst of pure fruit and bright acidity makes it distinctly BC.

Pinot Noir 2012 in Collaboration w/ Serendipity Winerysold out

A warm, ruby hue of medium intensity greets the eye. Bright notes of violets burst from the glass giving way to aromas of black cherry, clove, and cedar. The palate is fresh, pure, and structured with a concentrated, juicy finish. A wine of both power and restraint.

Chardonnay 2012 In Collaboration w/ ROAD 13sold out

Bright golden colour hints at the ripeness of the fruit. The nose is intense and layered. Notes of yellow apples, Meyer lemons, and quince paste overlay a well-integrated base of vanilla and toffee. The wine comes alive on the palate. Fresh, vibrant acidity runs through a rounded, slightly creamy mouth-feel. The lingering finish presents flavours of cantaloupe giving way to mouth-watering notes of preserved lemon. A well-rounded Chardonnay that marries purity of fruit with complexity gained from partial oak aging.

Blanc de Noir Brut NV In Collaboration w/ Backyard Vineyardsold out

A pretty pale orange to golden hue in the glass with a fine and persistent bead. The nose presents variations on green apples – apple cider, baked apple pie – as well as deeper notes of orange marmalade and fresh baked bread. On the palate, the wine is lean and refreshing, showing hints of under-ripe strawberry and just barely there natural fruit sweetness. The long finish leads with the crisp acidity of pink grapefruit, a nod to the wine’s unique Fraser Valley terroir.
