2018 Riesling gets press in the Globe and Mail!

Another great write up! This time, in the Globe and Mail featuring a handful of wines that Christopher Waters says "stood out in recent tastings", one of which is Tightrope Winery's 2018 Riesling! Lynsday O'Rourke has been getting quite a lot of attention drawn to her Rieslings of late, and they speak for themselves with regards to the level of quality BC Riesling can bring to our dinner tables.

Here are Christopher's tasting notes... "Tightrope’s house style is to make a refreshing expression of riesling with some sweetness to balance the grape variety’s naturally high acidity. Made from estate-grown grapes on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan, which were picked in two separate lots about one week apart to add complexity, this offers an attractive fruit salad suggesting green apple, grapefruit and white peach with a clean, fresh finish. Drink now to 2025. Available direct through."

For the time being, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on orders of 6bot+ with the promo code ShiptoSip !!

...and remember, everything happens for a Riesling…/article-eight-tasty-ways…/

Welcoming our new General Manager to Tightrope Winery!

Just a quick note to say hi to all of you fantastically loyal and loving Tightrope Winery fans out there! It has been a crazy entry into the winery in such challenging times, but nevertheless, it has been loads of fun pioneering new paths as we navigate our way through this newly emerging environment!

The team here is really pulling together all of that energy that we would normally be putting into a big Spring Tasting Room Opening, into finding creative ways to bring Tightrope's wines directly to you. I hope we are managing to do it well, but would love to hear any ideas that you have that would allow us to do better. Shoot us an emailtweet, fb message, or even instagram! Remember that we'll now ship free using the code SHIPTOSIP with online orders of 6bot+ here. If you are in the neighbourhood and want to order online and swing by to pick it up, just give us a ring and we'll scoot out and put it in your trunk for you! 

Some of the best news too that we have heard is that the Govt. has now allowed temporary (hopefully not so temporary) measures for restaurants to sell our wines along with take out orders!!! So amazing! Thanks, so much BC.

I am so looking forward to welcoming you to Tightrope Winery in person, but for the mean time, I would love to be in touch via all of the wonderful avenues we share through the many social media platforms that exist. So let's keep in touch, and enjoy great wines in a virtual environment.

I've posted a brief bio that you should be able to track down somewhere on this site, not sure yet where it will save it, but you could have a peek at it if you are interested. I come from a history of wine sales, wine ed, hospitality, travel, with a fair bit of awesome cuisine, and amazing folks I have met along the way : ) 

...until we meet. Salud! Good Health!

This is me... deep in the heart of a presentation : )
