Cloudy Day Club – here’s what you can expect

We’re shipping two Pinot Noirs in the first allocation of 2016.

Members of the Cloudy Day Club – our wine club that receives our Pinot Noirs three times a year – can look forward to two different Pinots in this package.

We’re sending the Fleuvage – our anyday, medium-bodied PN that works wondrously with light pasta dishes, poached wild salmon or crumbled goat cheese on toast.

We’re also sending some RED SKY rosé because – SPRING! The 100% Pinot Noir, made in the saignée method, is our go-to casual wine all year. But it’s especially welcome during the warm months when it makes a great partner with lighter foods served at room temperature or cooler. It’s a picnic in a glass.

The wines will be shipped in a 2 to 1 ratio.  If you’re a Straight Six member, for example, you’ll get four Fleuvage and two RED SKY.  There’s still time to add to your order.  Cloudy Day Club members should contact us to put more wine in your shipment.

Not a Cloudy Day Club member? Just head to our website to subscribe.  It’s better than ever to be a member because we’ve just made shipping FREE.

 

There’s still time to join.  There’s about 13 days left before cut-off on the day this was posted.

Time for #Take20

We don’t have a lot of “sales” in the traditional retail sense but we do like to reward our customers and attract new ones who really enjoy their Pinot Noir.

Yup, that’s all we make.  This year has been excellent and the new harvest is looking exceptional.  We’ve moved our administration offices and our production scene and there’s plenty more change on the way. We’re celebrating and giving everybody a chance to stock up their cellars with Black Cloud by knocking 20% off their order.

You can order through our online store at www.blackcloudwine.ca ,call us at the office (number below), or track us down in person! Use coupon code TAKE20

This is a good time to start thinking gift giving (how about a magnum of Altostratus?) and getting hold of some your favourite vintages before they run out.

Remember, Cloudy Club members get additional savings with this offer.  To become a member, just go to the www.blackcloud.ca site and subscribe to one of the 3, 6 or 12 bottle packages that we deliver three times a year.

If you’re in Penticton, why not drop by the Cannery Trade Centre and visit our new offices? We’d love to see you but do call first as we’re open by appointment or by chance during the fall and winter months. The number is 778.476.1655

Spring is here! Here’s the tasting events calendar…

We’re heading to Vancouver and the Lower Mainland of BC over the next couple weeks to debut our new RED SKY release.  The 2013 RED SKY rosé is the big news – a fresh and lively addition to your patio or festive table and, of course, 100% Pinot Noir.  We’ll also have our  Altostratus and Fleuvage on hand and you will have an opportunity to taste these 2010 vintages  just to see how each evolves in the bottle and to explore the vintage characteristics.IMG_20140226_174534

Vacation Stones and Pinot Noir

Vacation Stones and Pinot Noir

This photo of a bottle of our 2010 Fleuvage Pinot Noir was taken on a bed of stones and rock chips that we collected while on vacation. During the long winter months we’ll sometimes pick up a stone while enjoying a glass of wine and reminisce about where the stone was found and what we were doing that day. The sharp-eyed may be able to see a couple fossilized impressions among the rock chips as well. It certainly brings warmth to our chilly days when we can recall fun with friends and family and look forward to the journeys of the future.
