South Okanagan Wine Store to Relocate, Expand & Cohabitate
OLIVER, BC, Nov. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Inniskillin Okanagan Estate Retail store will soon have a new home, having outgrown its current
longstanding location on Mariposa Road. Strong growth and increased
popularity mean a new, larger store is required to meet the needs for
increased wine promotion and retail sales.
The end of November will mark the closing of the existing Inniskillin
retail store to make way for an exciting new, shared location adjacent
to Jackson-Triggs in Oliver. The new store will launch in early 2014
and promises an expanded, interactive and customer-centric experience
that is a one-stop shop for both the Inniskillin and Jackson-Triggs
This new facility will lend itself to wine tastings, and food & wine
pairing experiences, with an eye to becoming a must-visit, tasting and
retail experience at the gateway of the South Okanagan.
The existing Jackson-Triggs retail store will remain open throughout the
expansion plans. Inniskillin Okanagan staff will be there to greet you
at the re-opening in the Spring at the new location.
Retail sales for Inniskillin remain available via their website at www.inniskillin.com. A selection of Inniskillin wines is also available for purchase
through the Great Estates of the Okanagan website at www.greatestatesokanagan.com or by telephone sales at 250.498.4500.
At present, Winemaker Sandor Mayer is working on the 2013 vintage. We
are currently reviewing Inniskillin Okanagan's full wine production and
requirements to determine the most ideal locations for the future.
Sandor has already started making some Inniskillin wines at
Constellation Cellars, Oliver located on Tucelnuit Drive. The equipment
at this larger, state-of-the- art winemaking facility ranks with the
best in the world and the quality of the wine can only be enhanced at
this new location. Ultimately this would give us the best of both
worlds, with the ability to continue making high quality wines in both
larger and smaller scale production lots.
Further final details will be announced as they are completed.
