Liquidity's New Wine Tasting Program

Okanagan Falls' Liquidity Wines has rolled out their new "Equity Tasting Club" which will allow consumers to sample wines prior to ordering. Those who sign up for the $75 fee and a commitment to purchase 1+1/2 cases per year will be able to select 6 sample wines packaged in cute 200ml bottles to help you decide what to order.

It's a novel and fun idea for the consumer. I, and I'm sure many BC wineries, will be fascinated to learn if the club proves to be financially viable over the long run with so much specialty packaging and bottling involved in the concept. Time will tell. Get in early if you want to give it a go in case it doesn't last.

Summary from the winery:

  • Try before you buy
  • Free Shipping
  • Special library releases each year
  • Enjoy a 10% discount at Liquidity Bistro

Recent Liquidity Wines Reviews:

Liquidity Wines 2016 Reserve ChardonnayTasting Notes: Sourced from a single block of the winery's Okanagan Falls home vineyard from 22 year old vines planted exclusively to clone 76, this full-bodied, Tropical fruit upside-down cake inspired Chardonnay is sensual and tart at the same time. Flavoured similarly to its Estate cousin with layers of papaya, peach, baked pineapple, macadamia nuts, French vanilla, oak, minerals and a touch of lingering spice. Drink now-2021.

Liquidity Wines 2016 Estate ChardonnayTasting Notes: Sourced from the winery's Okanagan Falls home vineyard from a mixture of clones and vine ages, this Chardonnay is similarly flavoured to the winery's elegant Reserve, with a little less body and a touch less perceptible residual sugar (though the stats tell a different story; 2.2 g/l VS. 1.7 g/l. 

The subtle nose and mouth-watering, full-ish palate are graced with the aromas and flavours of papaya, peach, sweet pineapple, macadamia nuts, quiet vanilla, minerals and a hint of gingered spice. Drink now-2021.
