The Farmer’s Almanac is a useful compendium of weather and gardening, but it’s also a great guide for tracking the moon. A good farmer knows that the moon, with all of its coming and going, has the power to turn the tides and make or break a harvest. This out-of-this-world wine tasting is a chance to explore our wines with the moon in mind.

Six phases.

Six wines.

“Learning to lean into the moon cycle and its connection to gravitational pull can have a serious impact on the success of your farming effort,” Road 13 winemaker Barclay Robinson says.

Some of the featured wines during the experience include:

2019 Jackpot Chardonnay, a cellar favourite: “This Jackpot chardonnay is a showcase of the rich mineral aspects of the Golden Mile Bench,” Robinson says. “Barrel fermented and barrel-aged, this wine delivers all kinds of ripe, full-bodied goodness.”

2021 Rosé, a sign of summer: “This wine is a blend of pinot noir and gamay making it elegant and fresh,” Robinson says. “The colour is this ballerina slipper pink, but don’t let that fool you—it’s pretty, but it’ll still pack a punch.”

2019 Syrah Malbec, a crowd favourite: “This is a full-bodied wine with balance, power and complexity—a playground of flavours,” Robinson says.

Road 13 Vineyards is located in Oliver, and more information can be found here.
