The Perseus Wine Pack


These 6 wines in front of you were hand picked by OkanaganWine.Club as they are a great representation of the quality and overall portfolio at Perseus Winery. 


Meet Perseus Winery

Perseus Winery in Penticton, BC is a young, innovative and local team that makes wine to reflect the relaxed culture and diverse terroir of the Okanagan Valley. Perseus is named after a group of stars that appear over the Starblock estate vineyard during harvest time in early autumn.
The winemaking team at Perseus is headed up by Jason Parkes. He and his crew humbly enjoy the challenge of crafting wine. Jason has won over a hundred local and international awards. He has spent years getting to know local grape farmers, and he bases buying grapes on handshakes and personal relationships with growers. Perseus gathers grapes from over twenty vineyards from East Kelowna to Osoyoos. Jason cares about the agricultural community in the Okanagan and Similkameen, and the style of Perseus’ wines has evolved from working with a variety of quality-driven grape farmers.
The winemaking team and the farmers work together to produce the best grapes possible every year. By learning the intricacies of each vineyard, Jason has a good idea of how the grapes will mature. It can be seen as an advantage and an extra challenge to craft wine with grapes from all over the Valley. This is something that genuinely sets Perseus apart. In the winery, the team tries to intervene with the grape ferment as little as possible. They work in a tucked-away winery in Upper Peachland. The winemaking philosophy at Perseus is simple: good grapes equal good wine. The goal is to showcase rich and fruit-forward red wines and crisp and aromatic white wines.
A repurposed house in Penticton that was originally built in the early 1950s is home to the Perseus wine shop. It’s newly renovated and features a bright, open-concept layout and unique details such as a wooden beam rescued from Penticton’s first high school. The Perseus wine shop offers a unique experience, encouraging you to shop local artisan goods including pottery and jewelry, as well as clothing and gifts from exciting companies out of the lower mainland. There is also a beautiful patio where guests can enjoy wine tasting and charcuterie. If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, a glass-walled private tasting room is available to be booked for both private and library tastings.


About the Wines

Perseus is so excited to introduce OWC members to their portfolio, which includes two tiers of wine. The “Blue Label” series at Perseus is a collection of wines that are fresh, fruit forward and ready to drink this summer. The “Select Lots” series focuses on small production, single-vineyard wines of which the flagship Invictus is included. As a special treat, OWC is launching the release of the 2015 Invictus.
Up first is the 2017 Pinot Gris. This wine is special because it’s the only grape grown at the Starblock vineyard under the stars of the Perseus constellation. Pinot Gris is one of the most widely planted grapes in the Okanagan and reflects the Okanagan Valley in a glass. The off-dry 2017 Riesling Gewurztraminer is a refreshing way to enjoy good times and sunny days.  2017 Rose is made with old vine Gamay Noir grapes, and it’s bone dry with juicy fruit and spice.

The 2016 Cabernet Merlot is the perfect wine to bring to a BBQ this summer; it’s sure to be a winner with all types of wine drinker, and the 2016 Merlot is rich, delicious and offers great value.  Members are really lucky to be receiving the first released bottles of 2015 Invictus. This Bordeaux style blend consistently wins awards every vintage.

Twenty-four wine packs will switch out one 2016 Cabernet Merlot for a library 2011 Cabernet Franc. It has been ageing beautifully and is showing palate notes of poached fruit, sea salt, and chocolate. Grab a glass and enjoy a taste of the Okanagan with Perseus Wines.

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

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.
