Laughing Stock Vineyards Spring News

Naramata Spring 2011

Naramata Bench
Spring Release Event

April 21, 2011 - 6:30 to 9:00pm
The Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver.

What's better than a new wine release? A not yet released Barrel! This year Naramata Bench wine makers are bringing wines in barrels and their wine thief to treat guests to a preview of tastes from the Barrels of the Bench as well as new Spring releases and appetizing pairings from some of Vancouver's finest restaurants. We are super excited to have Cin Cin as our restaurant partner this year.

As well as tastes and treats at Spring Release you will also be able to place your bids on our auction of exclusive wines and the "Best of the Bench" 2011 collection.

Tickets are $89 and must be pre-purchased and this event sells out every year - so get your tickets now online or call 1-800-663-1900.


James Suckling Reviews. His
First-Ever Canadian Wine Tasting

While I think it's amusing that the former senior editor of Wine Spectator Magazine had never previously tasted Canadian wines, he did just that in Montreal recently and rated both Portfolio 2007 and Blind Trust 2008 as OUTSTANDING at 91 points each. During his time at Wine Spectator, James tasted an average of 4,000 wines annually with a primary focus on European wines. See his blog at


Stylish wine with tobacco and toasted oak and dried berries. Full and refined, with chocolate and subtle blackberry flavors. Pretty. Grows on you. Gets better and better in the glass. 91 points


Wow. This is fruit forward yet it's fresh and racy with lots of dark fruits and dark chocolate character. It's full bodied, with round and polished tannins and a long flavorful finish. Loads going on here. Hard not to drink it now, but it will come on even better in a year or two. 91 points

You can still purchase Portfolio 2007 through our library vertical, just until the end of the month.
