Sometimes you get a shipment of wine in the mail & it just so happens to coincide with some incredible kitchen light. What better way to celebrate the new vintage of Echo Bay Vineyard’s wine than with an impromptu photoshoot?
While I am not able to provide any tasting notes at this time, needless to say, I am looking forward to enjoying these beautiful wines. Keep scrolling for more after the photos.
A couple of months ago, I received a notification that Echo Bay were accepting new members into their Wine Club. I signed up without much hesitation as I knew that I already loved the wine Kelsey Rufiange makes under her Else Wines label. While Else focuses on fun, flirty natural wines, Echo Bay focuses on, bold, full-bodied red wines, still with that ever-important minimalist wine-making approach.
I opted to opt in to the offered “Lunar Pack” which featured all four of their 2017 cuvees, including a bottle of their “Nella” Okanagan Sangiovese & a bottle of their experimental Cabernet Franc ‘0’, a single neutral barrel wine, which are both limited to just over 20 cases. Also included is a bottle of Cabernet Franc, a single varietal ‘core’ wine as well as three bottles of their flagship “Synoptic” blend which features the classic six Bordeaux varietals, a wine that I’m very much looking forward to diving in to.
A special gift included with the membership was a bag of Echo Bay Coffee which also just cements them as some of my favourite people around because coffee, not much unlike wine, is near-and-dear to my heart.
There’s not much else to say at this point as I have not yet had the chance to open of these wines but I am very glad I was able to have the opportunity to taste through this, what I’m sure is an, incredible lineup.
