Planet Friendly Feathered Friends

This Earth Week, we are thrilled to welcome some new additions to the Township 7 family, a dozen Rhode Island Red chickens! In our drive to be more sustainable in the vineyard, we have brought home to our Naramata Bench estate, chickens to help alleviate some of the pests we occasionally have in the vineyard. We do not generally spray pesticides for insects, so this will be a sustainable way to deal with cut worm larva. The bugs climb the vine at night and eat the buds so they will make great chicken food. In addition, we will get fresh, free range eggs for our staff. Win win!!

Severe flooding in the Greater Vancouver & B.C. Interior Region

Due to severe flooding in the Greater Vancouver and B.C. Interior region, we anticipate many parts of the country will experience delays with delivery of your wine orders. As we are working closely with our shipping company, we do not have estimated delivery dates; however, rest assured your wine will make it to you as soon as possible.

We share our deepest sympathies with those affected by the recent storm in British Columbia.
