Dame Mary Mackay – Terra Breads

Dame Mackay owns Terra Breads and we always stop in for the Pannetone, cookies and some gingerbread men at this time of year. Don’t forget to stock up on bread for stuffing, some crackers for the cheese plate and their lovely jams and sauces also make great stocking stuffers.

Wine from Encore Vineyards – Evolve, Time Cellars and the McWatters Collection!

McWatters Collection

The McWatters Collection was launched in 2011 with a Meritage and Chardonnay, crafted from grapes grown in the south Okanagan Valley. These two flagship wines represent the entirety of the portfolio, and are a legacy to the McWatters name. Low production of these premium wines is determined by the yields in the vineyard.

TIME Winery

TIME Estate Winery launched in June 2013 with a small line of wines crafted by the vinifera grown in the south Okanagan Valley. The TIME portfolio includes both a red and a white Meritage blend, plus a few distinct single variety wines as our vineyard’s intentional moderate yields permit.

Evolve Cellars

Evolve Cellars celebrates the evolution of our British Columbia wine industry with a series of fresh, approachable wines. Bright and fruit forward, these wines are crafted from grapes grown on our estate vineyard and in collaboration with grower partners in the South Okanagan. Through Evolve we raise a glass to our continued journey, and what the next step may bring.
