Thank you to Sam Hauck for including Rara Avis as a BC wine suggestion that he says might become one of your new favourites.

“An uncommon or exceptional thing is a Rara Avis or “Rare Bird”.  Rara Avis premium fortified fruit wine is a celebration of the organic Haskap berries grown on the pristine soil of our Okanagan Valley farm.  Full-bodied and luscious, Rara Avis tantalizes the palate with the rich aroma of currant and brambles, caramel notes and a darting, faintly spiced finish that calls to mind the hummingbirds of our fields. Winemaking notes – The Rara Avis Fortified Wine was oaked for 2 years in American oak to develop its richness and intense flavours of currant, brambles, and caramel notes.”
