Tinhorn Creek Open

We look forward to welcoming you back into our wine shop! We have re-opened our doors for wine purchases as of Thursday, May 21st. Our hours of operation are 10am - 5pm daily.

Our wine shop is set up to adhere to social distancing protocols, so we ask for your patience as we can only accommodate eight (8) guests in the building at once. We are not able to offer wine tastings, tours, or events at this time. 

We plan to start offering seated wine tastings on our outdoor patio the first week of June. Guests will enjoy a flight of four (4) wines for $15 per person, waived with purchase of two bottles per person. The tasting patio will be a 19+ space because our capacity is only 12 seats, and we encourage guests to book in advance by calling 1-888-484-6467/250-498-3743 or by booking here.

You may purchase a bottle of wine and GoVino glasses to enjoy outside in our pic nic area or amphitheatre, which are kid-friendly. Complete your pic nic with take-out meal from Miradoro Restaurant!

For your convenience and safety, we will continue to offer curbside pick-up of wine purchases. Place your order online, or call us in advance at 250-498-3743, so we can have your order pre-packed and ready for you when you arrive.

Bring Heavy Medal to Your Holiday Party

NEWS RELEASE [Oliver, BC] With so many lists to make at this time of year, decision-making can be a challenge, but Tinhorn Creek Vineyards makes holiday wine selection easy, with its award-winning lineup. 

Holiday entertainers and gift-givers can’t go wrong with anything the South Okanagan winery offers, from a crisp Pinot Gris to a bold Pinot Noir. Illustrating this, the winery shares that just in time for the holidays, it has received an armful of medals from the 19th Annual Wine Press Northwest Platinum Competition:

·      Double Platinum - 2016 Chardonnay

·      Platinum - 2014 Oldfield Reserve Cabernet Franc

·      Platinum - 2017 Pinot Gris

·      Double Gold - 2015 Cabernet Franc 

·      Double Gold - 2016 Oldfield Reserve Chardonnay

·      Gold - 2015 Oldfield Reserve Cabernet Franc

·      Gold - 2014 Oldfield Reserve Pinot Noir

Hosted by Wine Press Northwest magazine, the Platinum Judging is only by invitation and includes wines from BC, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho that have been first been recognized with a gold or better award at other defined competitions. The resulting winner list is a ‘best of the best’ in the Northwest and is a fun way to discover great wines right before the holidays.

Wine Press Northwest editor Gregg McConnell notes "Earning a Platinum is an outstanding accomplishment, and Double Platinum is an exceptional honour."

For Tinhorn Creek to receive seven awards is a notable achievement, and winemaker Andrew Windsor is grateful. “We make wines for our customers and not to attain high scores,” he says, “but it is always nice to receive recognition for our hard work. We track our success based on the acceptance of our wines,” he continues. “The fact that we have been consistently selling out of our wines tells us we are on the right track. It’s an honour to work for this great group of people and be the stewards of such a great place, so these awards are for them.”

ANDREW PELLER LIMITED TO ACQUIRE THREE BRITISH COLUMBIA WINERIES

$95 MILLION IN ACQUISITIONS TRANSFORMS COMPANY INTO BC’S LARGEST PRODUCER OF QUALITY WINES

This news release contains forward-looking information that is based upon assumptions and is subject to risks and uncertainties as indicated in the cautionary note contained elsewhere in this news release.

GRIMSBY, Ontario – September 11, 2017 – Andrew Peller Limited ADW.A/ADW.B (“APL” or the “Company”) announced today that it has signed definitive agreements to acquire 100% of Black Hills Estate Winery and Gray Monk Estate Winery and has entered into a letter of intent to acquire 100% of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, for a combined purchase price of $95 million. The three estate VQA wineries in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley generated total revenues of approximately $25 million in their latest fiscal years. The purchase will be funded by a combination of $78 million in cash from the Company’s credit lines and $17 million worth of Class A common shares. The company expects to close all of the transactions on or before the end of October 2017. “My grandfather started our business in the Okanagan nearly 60 years ago, and we have always been inspired by the Valley’s promise to make wines that rival the very best in the world. We have long admired these leading estate VQA wineries and now it is a privilege to bring their ultra-premium wines and talented people into our family,” said John Peller, Andrew Peller Limited’s Chief Executive Officer. “With our investment and resources, these wines have the potential to grow, develop and compete in the growing luxury wine market around the world.” Black Hills Estate Winery, located on the Black Sage Bench near Oliver, B.C., is one of Canada’s most prestigious wine producers with an award-winning portfolio of premium and ultra-premium wines, including its flagship Nota Bene, the number one ultra-premium red wine in Canada. Recognized for its terroir and 50 acres of vineyards, the winery consistently sells out of its high performing portfolio of VQA wines. “Black Hills has been proud of how we have evolved our quality over the years. This new partnership allows us access to resources and tools to evolve even further,” said Glenn Fawcett, President, Black Hills Estate Winery. Gray Monk Estate Winery, founded in 1972, is a family-owned and operated winery located in Okanagan Centre in the Lake Country region north of Kelowna, B.C. With a beautiful estate winery and 50 acres of grape plantings, Gray Monk is a favorite destination for wine lovers visiting the Okanagan Valley to enjoy BC’s best-selling Pinot Gris as well as other popular red and white wines. “We’ve known the Peller family for many years and share and appreciate the same values and approach to quality winemaking. We are delighted to partner with them to continue the legacy of Gray Monk Estate Winery in the Okanagan,” said George Heiss, co-owner, Gray Monk Estate Winery. Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, located on the Golden Mile Bench, the Okanagan’s only sub appellation, near Oliver, B.C., sits among 150 acres of vineyards and the winery’s prestigious and award-winning Miradoro Restaurant. Family-owned and operated since 1993, Tinhorn Creek produces both red and white wines in the ultra-premium category sold through their loyal wine club, numerous on-site events, restaurants and fine wine retailers. “It has been the honour of my life to have helped build Tinhorn Creek, to make great wines with an attention to sustainability and most importantly, to run our business with empathy toward our employees, our customers and our community.” said Sandra Oldfield, CEO, Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. “Andrew Peller will continue the long term development and growth in the Okanagan that we started.” According to Randy Powell, the Company’s President, there is a significant opportunity for growth in the Okanagan wine region. “Canadian consumers are becoming more and more interested in super and ultra-premium wines, and these are some of the greatest brands in the country” Powell stated. “They complement our Western Canada VQA portfolio well and will significantly strengthen our presence in the region.” Completion of the each transaction is subject to a number of conditions customary for transactions of this nature and, in the case of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, entering into a definitive agreement. In addition, the issuance by the 2 Company of Class A common shares in connection with the transactions will be subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. Each transaction is independent of, and not conditional upon, the other transactions.
