This past June I enjoyed my birthday lunch at Phantom Creek Winery in Oliver where I also had a chance to explore the winery and vineyards. Recently I attended a wonderful reception at Carlino Restaurant for the launch of a new 2017 Sparkling Brut and a 2017 Sparkling Brut Reserve.
These two wines will be released as single bottles and together in beautiful holiday gift bundles, just in time to celebrate the holiday season and to ring in a dazzling 2023.
I also enjoyed tasting their Phantom Creek 2021 Rose that was poured by Gragham. The Director of Winemaking Mark Beringer.spoke about the making of these special wines.
We enjoyed delicious canapes by Carlino Restaurant and one of my favourites was the Mini Frico (traditional friulian fried cheese, soft potatoes, slow cooked onions), along with the meatballs, sablefish and more.
Phantom Creek’s new 2017 Sparkling Brut, 2017 Sparkling Brut Reserve and holiday gift bundles are available to purchase online at phantomcreekestates.com/collection/bundle.
