Meet Red Rooster Winery
Red Rooster Winery on the Naramata Bench has been around for 21 years, making wine from the vineyard at their front door as well as a handful of select vineyards up and down the Valley. Their engaging and, at times, the offbeat approach gives a certain proud flair to everything they do. Red Rooster consistently receives top honours at major wine competitions around the world. The Rare Bird series from Red Rooster is a line of special, small lot wines that showcase the best grapes in the Okanagan Valley by winemaker Karen Gillis.

Winemaker: Karen Gillis

Karen Gillis has been the winemaker at Red Rooster for 11 years, and she’s been making wine for almost 20 years. Growing up in a family with many chefs and a love of food and wine, Karen originally planned on also becoming a chef. She eventually found her soul in winemaking. She loves the sensory side of making wine; from budburst to final bottling Karen enjoys the whole process and likens it to the feelings that she got as a kid with her family.
.
Rare Bird Wine Pack
Whether you’ve been enjoying wine from Red Rooster for years or they are brand new to you, the Rare Bird series is something special. These wines are made in small batches with extra care with rarely seen grape varietals and blends.
To begin, you will receive the 2017 Rare Bird Viognier. This Viognier is silky and tastes like ripe apricots. Next is the layered and crisp 2017 Rare Bird Rose.

For reds, you will begin with the 2016 Rare Bird Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir is a bit smokey with notes of sweet baking spice. The 2016 Rare Bird Malbec is velvety and grown at the home vineyard in Naramata. Then, the 2015 Rare Bird Syrah, which is complex and irresistible. Last but certainly not least is the 2015 Rare Bird Meritage. This blend is crafted with only the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

A few people will switch the 2015 Meritage for the extremely rare 2015 Golden Egg. This wine is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre; a combination that is very rare to find in the Okanagan Valley. Half of these wines have been released early for OWC members and the others are exclusive to the Red Rooster wine club. Enjoy!

The individual varietals are oak aged separately for 10 months, then the final blend (39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot) is blended from the best barrels identified by winemaker Karen Gillis.

VIP Members that place their orders Monday, January 7th will automatically be included Tuesday's raffle. 24 lucky VIP’s will get to exchange the 2015 Meritage for the unique 2015 Golden Egg. This is a GSM blend, one of a kind in the valley.
Rare Bird Golden Egg 2015 | $45.00 | Grenache, Syrah & Mourvedre

Drinking Recommendations | Decant for 30 mins or cellar for 3 years.

Why We Chose It | Golden Egg is crafted from one barrel of each of the three varietals: Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache. This top barrel selection and an equal proportion of each grape have allowed the unique traits of each varietal to shine through. Primary fermentation was done in open top stainless steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation. The Mourvedre and Grenache were aged in one-year-old French oak barrels and the Syrah was aged in American oak. The wines were blended together after 12 months in oak barrels and then the final blend was aged a further 2 months before bottling. This is an elegant expression of this style of wine that represents the progression of winemaking in the Okanagan Valley.

Hear What Other Okanagan Wine Enthusiasts Are Saying
At OkanaganWine.Club, we work hard to give our members a fantastic experience. From the wine quality to the shipping process and beyond, we strive to leave you satisfied with your purchase. That’s why local wine lovers like you are saying things like this:
We’re proud to offer you a great selection of wines and as a member of the Okanagan Wine Club, you’re part of a unique wine experience that has its own Okanagan twist. These and other satisfied club members are proof that buying the best Okanagan wines on the market can be affordable, convenient, and fun.
The Okanagan Wine Club: Bringing You Quality Local Wines You’ll Love
Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we’re passionate about bringing you great local wines from world-renowned and boutique wineries. As wine lovers ourselves, we know how challenging it is to walk into a liquor store and find a new bottle of wine to try (many of our selections CAN’T be found in liquor stores). Will it pair nicely with the meal you’ve planned? Is it a good vintage? We’ve had these questions ourselves, and that’s why we work hard to take the guesswork out of trying new wines. We work directly with some of the Okanagan’s best wineries to hand-select the top seasonal offerings and bring them straight to your door.
What does that mean? It means you can spend less time analyzing your wines and more time enjoying them. It means you’ll never again have to guess whether or not 2011 was a good year for local whites or whether you’re overpaying for that bottle of Merlot. Put away your vintage charts; when you shop through the Okanagan Wine Club, you’ll benefit from our wine experts’ knowledge and experience in choosing great local wines.
No Monthly Fee Means You Only Pay for What You Want
One common question we often get is what monthly dues we charge to be part of the club. The answer? None. We don’t charge our members any kind of monthly fee whatsoever. Joining the club is absolutely free, and always will be.

The Okanagan Wine Club is not a monthly membership site, and this is important for several reasons:
  • No monthly membership fee means you can try wines at your leisure.
  • You can pick and choose the sample packs you want to receive without having to cancel a featured pack (I always forgot to cancel and got stuff I didn’t want).
  • No inventory on hand means we don’t guarantee sales to the wineries, which means they give us their highest quality wine.
Our partner wineries know that our current and future club members are passionate about great wine, and that our members represent a significant part of the wine enthusiast community – that means the wineries are proud to present their very best wines to Okanagan Wine Club members
The VIP Lounge: How to Get In
We value all of our members and offer club members a variety of great services, but as a VIP member, you’ll receive several added perks you won’t find anywhere else. Our VIP members benefit from all sorts of bonus offers that the general public won’t ever hear about. VIP members also have priority access to exclusive wine packs, so you can order your wines a full day before the general public and benefit from exclusive deals from our partner organizations.
FAQ
Do I Need to Sign a Contract?
Not at all! Joining the Okanagan Wine Club is entirely free and doesn’t require any paperwork. You have no contract with us and may choose to unsubscribe at any time. We do not trap you into monthly charges…you simply buy the sample packs you want 🙂 Simple.
What Happen If I Want to Leave the Okanagan Wine Club?
You don’t really have to leave, as you are not in a subscription! You just don’t buy anymore (but we doubt that will happen).
Is This a Connoisseurs-Only Club? Do I Have to Know Anything About Wine to Join the Club?
It can seem intimidating at first to join a wine club when you know nothing about wine, but rest assured you have nothing to fear. The Okanagan Wine Club is proud to offer a variety of educational materials that will help you to become a wine master in no time. Our weekly newsletters and blog articles are full of great information that can help you to better understand the wine world. With these materials, you’ll learn about wine regions, flavour and texture profiles, and all the big industry news. Best of all, it’s written in a beginner-friendly manner that assumes absolutely zero knowledge of wine, wine pairings, or the wine industry. Even if you’re starting fresh with no wine background whatsoever, you’ll love what we have to offer – and you’ll quickly learn everything you need to know.

Best of all, joining the Okanagan Wine Club is completely free and requires no monthly commitment. So even if you’re not a “wine club” person, you can still learn about, enjoy, and discuss the best wines in the Okanagan.
I Only Like One Kind of Wine!
One of the great advantages of joining our wine club is that you’ll be able to try new, boutique wines easier than ever. Perhaps the reason you don’t like white wines, for instance, is because you haven’t yet found the right white. Wines come in many diverse forms and flavour profiles, and by ordering today you get to try 6 new wines.
I Don’t Drink Enough Wine to Justify Joining a Wine Club!
Even if you don’t necessarily drink wine on a regular basis, you probably still celebrate with it, or entertain family and friends. It’s never a bad idea to have a few bottles of wine on hand should some old friends unexpectedly drop in – and by being prepared, you’ll look like a fantastic host. Wine also makes an excellent gift for birthdays and holidays. Invited for a dinner party? Quickly grab a nice bottle with a story to tell. No one will ship you wine automatically. If you order once, that’s it (until you choose to order more).
I’m Afraid to Give Out My Credit Card Number Online!
We understand that e-commerce can be intimidating, and credit card fraud is a real concern. We ensure that the winery in turn has a payment platform that uses secure SSL verification, a security method that prevents third parties from getting your information. SSL verification ensures that your computer only connects to trusted sites that independent third parties have confirmed as reliable. It’s the technological equivalent of keeping your credit card in a box with two different locks protecting it.
What If I Don’t Like Your Wine?
Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we strive to bring you the best wine deals in the region – and in support of that mission, we’ve chosen to focus exclusively on cultivating and distributing a great selection of products. By partnering with several different wineries, we’re able to offer you a wider selection of wines to try and enjoy.

Sadly, this means we have no control over the wine making process, and therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of each individual bottle. However, many of our partner wineries do allow you to return wine directly to the winery if the quality has been compromised. If you are unsatisfied with your wine purchase or the quality of your wine, please email us to help you solve the issue.
There’s A Specific Kind of Wine I Want, But You Don’t Offer It!
The great freedom we offer over traditional wine membership sites is that you, the user, are free to order the wine packs you want and decline the wine packs you don’t want. So thankfully, you’re not obligated to buy a wine you don’t think you’ll enjoy (we encourage trying new wines).

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we try to come out with new offers every two weeks. If you don’t see your preferred wine in our offers, send us an email and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Where am I Purchasing The Wine?
You are purchasing wine directly from the winery. All on their site but we are working closely with the wineries to ensure that OWC members get treated as true VIPs and enjoy a quality experience every time.
