Vuw Series

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

vuw_pinot-gris

Pinot Gris 2015

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.

Production: 200 cases
Price: $17
Vineyard: Three Mile Vineyard (Naramata) / Stoneboat Estate Vineyard (Oliver/Black Sage Bench)

vuw_merlot

Merlot 2014

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’ 2015

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.

colab_chardonnay

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.

Production: 120 cases
Price: $24
Vineyard: Castle Vineyard (Oliver/Golden Mile), Kuipers Vineyard (Kelowna), Blind Creek Vineyard (Cawston/Similkameen Valley)
Variety: Chardonnay (100%)

colab_sparkling

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.

Production: 100 cases
Price: $25

Block 300

For an urban winery, character is defined by city blocks rather than vineyard blocks. The Block 300 series celebrates our home on the 300 block of Alexander Street in Railtown, Vancouver.

VUW-Studio-Block300-June-Launch-1

Events

We host a select few events each month including the crazy popular Sunday School series of wine seminars and our laidback, live music showcase The Set List.

Sunday School is Vancouver’s wine school for the people hosted by rock star sommeliers David Stansfield and Lisa Cook. These rowdy seminars break wine down through interactive, brown bag tastings. Learn how to buy wine and look good doing it. Find upcoming seminars here: vuw.eventbrite.com.

The Set List is a night of live music hosted by Francesca Carbonneau from FRANKIE. Each night features a line up of talented, local musicians performing in our lounge. Select Monday nights from 7PM to 11PM. Email us to find out our next Set List date or how you can get involved as an artist: setlist@settlementbuilding.com.
