– Post submitted.

Sister wineries LaStella and Le Vieux Pin have opened their cellar doors to welcome wine lovers and give them the inside scoop with an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of their craft. This new tour offers a unique opportunity to discover more about the wineries low input and sustainable practices, taste their special vintages and enjoy a few surprises amongst the barrels.

“However great the finished wine might be, it’s not just about what’s in the bottle, but the journey of how it got there. These special visits are run by expert members of the vineyard team from Severine Pinte, our Winemaker, Lee Baker our Assistant Winemaker, to myself and Jody Subotin our Vineyard Manager,” says Managing Partner Rasoul Salehi. “The private tour includes a tasting in our cellar, access to the inner workings of the vineyard and it gives guests a deeper understanding of our philosophy.”

Roam the vineyard of the Provencal-style Le Vieux Pin winery and enjoy a Cellar Chaperone tour of the finest block of vines, where the low-yield viticulture and warm climate ensures that the grapes thrive in the sunshine. Head out of the heat and step in the cool cellar to taste Le Vieux Pin’s latest vintages and learn more about the ancient art of winemaking in the classic French tradition.

LaStella celebrates La Dolce Vita with a Symphony of the Senses personal tour of the hands-on winemaking of their Tuscan-inspired wines. During a cellar tasting, the LaStella team shares their vision for the wines and the musical themes that run through the winery, while sampling a wide range of their past, present and future offerings.

Both cellar tours offer a rare glimpse of life behind the vines and require 48 hours’ notice to arrange, at a cost of $50 per person. Email or call 1-250-498-8388 to arrange a VIP tour of Le Vieux Pin, or email or call 1-250-495-8180 to experience a taste of La Dolce Vita at LaStella.
