The Anarchist Wine Pack

These 4 wines in front of you were hand picked by OkanaganWine.Club as they are a great representation of the quality and overall portfolio at Anarchist Mountain Vineyard located in Osoyoos, BC. 


Meet Anarchist Mountain Vineyard

Anarchist Mountain Vineyard is a very small producer with a four-and-a-half acre vineyard on forty acres of mountain wilderness in Osoyoos. Uniquely, this vineyard sits on the east side of Anarchist Mountain, seven hundred feet above the valley floor. With a stunning view, this vineyard gets a ton of sunshine with cool mountain breezes among sagebrush and rattlesnakes.

Anarchist Mountain Vineyard marked its first vintage in 2011. It is a passion project for owners Andrew and Terry Stone, who are originally from Alberta. Anarchist Mountain is making fine wine that is expressive of the elevated vineyard and the old age of the vines. These wines are elegant yet structured and surprisingly poised for being situated so far south Okanagan. We have been wanting to show off these gems for a long time!

The vineyard was planted more than twenty years ago with Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. The grapes are farmed by Andrew Stone. Andrew aims to showcase the purest expression of his vineyard by meticulously caring for his mature vines on this unique plateau. Andrew takes a sustainable and gentle approach in the vineyard.  He has a real connection with the site and views growing grapes as a passion and an art. The wines are all excellent examples of elegant, cool-climate, BC wines. They are complex, mineral-driven, and full of finesse.

When Andrew began as a grape grower, he apprenticed under Chris Carson, who is now the winemaker for Anarchist. Chris Carson is the winemaker and viticulturist at Meyer Family Vineyard and produces a Pinot Noir under his own name, “Carson.” Anarchist Mountain Vineyard is a custom-crush client for Meyer Family Vineyard. This means that Andrew grows the grapes, and after they have been harvested, he brings them to Meyer Family Vineyard for Chris to do his part. Chris and Andrew work together to express the beauty of Anarchist Mountain Vineyard.

Chris has a very gentle hand in the winery because he believes that beautiful wine is made in the vineyard. His approach reflects a sense of place, and he allows the wines to develop naturally. His wines are full of subtlety, intrigue, and complexity. Chris is one of the Okanagan’s most talked-about winemakers, and he has been at Meyer Family Vineyard since 2008. He has a particular love of Pinot Noir for its elegance and its unique vineyard variation. He draws on his work experience from Central Otago in New Zealand, which only produces Pinot Noir for red varietals. Chris also has a degree in Oenology/Viticulture from the esteemed Lincoln University in NZ.

About the wines

This wine pack is perfect for enhancing a conversation or meal with friends and family. Anarchist strives to produce wines with finesse and elegance above all else. The vineyard produces just fewer than six hundred cases of wine every year and only three different wines. This portfolio is so limited that you cannot purchase most of the wines anywhere but here.

To begin with, the pack includes two bottles of the stunning 2016 Elevation Chardonnay. These vines are more than thirty years old, so this is a compelling and mineral-driven Chardonnay. Next is a pair of the 2016 Mayhem, a lively and savoury blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. You will be glad you have two! You will also enjoy one bottle of the 2016 Wildfire Pinot Noir, which is currently sold out. This Pinot Noir is elegant, light, and structured. Last but certainly not least is the 2015 Carson Pinot Noir.

As mentioned above, Carson is the personal label of Chris Carson, of which he only makes Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir comes from an elevated vineyard in Naramata and is given the same hands-off treatment in the winery as all of his other wines are. This Pinot Noir is complex yet rich and truly shows the passion and experience of Chris as a Pinot Noir enthusiast. This wine pack has been so highly anticipated that we are sure to sell out early. All of these wines are made with passion and a love of the grape for your enjoyment. Cheers!

Hear What Other Okanagan Wine Enthusiasts Are Saying

 

At OkanaganWine.Club, we work hard to give our members a fantastic experience. From the wine quality to the shipping process and beyond, we strive to leave you satisfied with your purchase. That’s why local wine lovers like you are saying things like this:

We’re proud to offer you a great selection of wines and as a member of the Okanagan Wine Club, you’re part of a unique wine experience that has its own Okanagan twist. These and other satisfied club members are proof that buying the best Okanagan wines on the market can be affordable, convenient, and fun.


The Okanagan Wine Club: Bringing You Quality Local Wines You’ll Love

 

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we’re passionate about bringing you great local wines from world-renowned and boutique wineries. As wine lovers ourselves, we know how challenging it is to walk into a liquor store and find a new bottle of wine to try (many of our selections CAN’T be found in liquor stores). Will it pair nicely with the meal you’ve planned? Is it a good vintage? We’ve had these questions ourselves, and that’s why we work hard to take the guesswork out of trying new wines. We work directly with some of the Okanagan’s best wineries to hand-select the top seasonal offerings and bring them straight to your door.

What does that mean? It means you can spend less time analyzing your wines and more time enjoying them. It means you’ll never again have to guess whether or not 2011 was a good year for local whites or whether you’re overpaying for that bottle of Merlot. Put away your vintage charts; when you shop through the Okanagan Wine Club, you’ll benefit from our wine experts’ knowledge and experience in choosing great local wines.

 

No Monthly Fee Means You Only Pay for What You Want

 

One common question we often get is what monthly dues we charge to be part of the club. The answer? None. We don’t charge our members any kind of monthly fee whatsoever. Joining the club is absolutely free, and always will be.

The Okanagan Wine Club is not a monthly membership site, and this is important for several reasons:

  •  No monthly membership fee means you can try wines at your leisure.
  • You can pick and choose the sample packs you want to receive without having to cancel a featured pack (I always forgot to cancel and got stuff I didn’t want).
  • No inventory on hand means we don’t guarantee sales to the wineries, which means they give us their highest quality wine.

Our partner wineries know that our current and future club members are passionate about great wine, and that our members represent a significant part of the wine enthusiast community – that means the wineries are proud to present their very best wines to Okanagan Wine Club members


The VIP Lounge: How to Get In

We value all of our members and offer club members a variety of great services, but as a VIP member, you’ll receive several added perks you won’t find anywhere else. Our VIP members benefit from all sorts of bonus offers that the general public won’t ever hear about. VIP members also have priority access to exclusive wine packs, so you can order your wines a full day before the general public and benefit from exclusive deals from our partner organizations.

 


FAQ

Do I Need to Sign a Contract?

Not at all! Joining the Okanagan Wine Club is entirely free and doesn’t require any paperwork. You have no contract with us and may choose to unsubscribe at any time. We do not trap you into monthly charges…you simply buy the sample packs you want 🙂 Simple.

What Happen If I Want to Leave the Okanagan Wine Club?

 You don’t really have to leave, as you are not in a subscription! You just don’t buy anymore (but we doubt that will happen).

Is This a Connoisseurs-Only Club? Do I Have to Know Anything About Wine to Join the Club?

It can seem intimidating at first to join a wine club when you know nothing about wine, but rest assured you have nothing to fear. The Okanagan Wine Club is proud to offer a variety of educational materials that will help you to become a wine master in no time. Our weekly newsletters and blog articles are full of great information that can help you to better understand the wine world. With these materials, you’ll learn about wine regions, flavour and texture profiles, and all the big industry news. Best of all, it’s written in a beginner-friendly manner that assumes absolutely zero knowledge of wine, wine pairings, or the wine industry. Even if you’re starting fresh with no wine background whatsoever, you’ll love what we have to offer – and you’ll quickly learn everything you need to know.

Best of all, joining the Okanagan Wine Club is completely free and requires no monthly commitment. So even if you’re not a “wine club” person, you can still learn about, enjoy, and discuss the best wines in the Okanagan.

I Only Like One Kind of Wine!

One of the great advantages of joining our wine club is that you’ll be able to try new, boutique wines easier than ever. Perhaps the reason you don’t like white wines, for instance, is because you haven’t yet found the right white. Wines come in many diverse forms and flavour profiles, and by ordering today you get to try 6 new wines.

I Don’t Drink Enough Wine to Justify Joining a Wine Club!

Even if you don’t necessarily drink wine on a regular basis, you probably still celebrate with it, or entertain family and friends. It’s never a bad idea to have a few bottles of wine on hand should some old friends unexpectedly drop in – and by being prepared, you’ll look like a fantastic host. Wine also makes an excellent gift for birthdays and holidays. Invited for a dinner party? Quickly grab a nice bottle with a story to tell. No one will ship you wine automatically. If you order once, that’s it (until you choose to order more).

I’m Afraid to Give Out My Credit Card Number Online!

We understand that e-commerce can be intimidating, and credit card fraud is a real concern. We ensure that the winery in turn has a payment platform that uses secure SSL verification, a security method that prevents third parties from getting your information. SSL verification ensures that your computer only connects to trusted sites that independent third parties have confirmed as reliable. It’s the technological equivalent of keeping your credit card in a box with two different locks protecting it. 

What If I Don’t Like Your Wine?

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we strive to bring you the best wine deals in the region – and in support of that mission, we’ve chosen to focus exclusively on cultivating and distributing a great selection of products.  By partnering with several different wineries, we’re able to offer you a wider selection of wines to try and enjoy.

Sadly, this means we have no control over the wine making process, and therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of each individual bottle. However, many of our partner wineries do allow you to return wine directly to the winery if the quality has been compromised. If you are unsatisfied with your wine purchase or the quality of your wine, please email us to help you solve the issue.

There’s A Specific Kind of Wine I Want, But You Don’t Offer It!

The great freedom we offer over traditional wine membership sites is that you, the user, are free to order the wine packs you want and decline the wine packs you don’t want. So thankfully, you’re not obligated to buy a wine you don’t think you’ll enjoy (we encourage trying new wines).

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we try to come out with new offers every two weeks. If you don’t see your preferred wine in our offers, send us an email and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Where am I Purchasing The Wine?

You are purchasing wine directly from the winery. All on their site but we are working closely with the wineries to ensure that OWC members get treated as true VIPs and enjoy a quality experience every time.
