Our tasting room will be open for the Dec 1-2 and Dec 8-9 weekends from 12–4 pm. We invite you to drop by to taste our just-released 2011 Pinot Noir, enjoy a glass of wine in our barrel room, and check out our gift packs of Symphony wines and preserves for someone on your Christmas list!  To complement our estate wines we’ll have a great selection of locally made cheeses and crackers to enjoy or to pack into your baskets.  Enjoy with our farm-made jams, wine jellies and chutneys.

You are invited to a special Port Pouring with chocolate for the friends of Starling Lane:  Saturday and Sunday, December 1-2, or December 8-9, 12–5 pm. Let us thank you for your years of support.  Come and enjoy the festive setting and meet your friends. Gift wrapped bottles available. Very suitable for that special and unique gift — or for your wine cellar. As many of you know, 2013 is our final year for Starling Lane Winery. Our Port Victoria – referred to as the best blackberry port on Vancouver Island – will soon not be available. Anywhere.

Merridale Cider and Bistro – 12 days of Christmas
Perhaps the origins of the twelve days of Christmas are in dispute, but here at merridale our gift giving starts on December 1!  Here’s how our 12 days of Christmas work.  A different gift will be added each day starting December 1, so that by day 12 there will be twelve unique offerings.  Plus when you buy in our gift shop you will receive discount coupons to join us for lunch or dinner on the day of your shopping trip too!  Pamper yourself this season and savour a little Christmas yuletide in our bistro, bakery and store.  Because at merridale, we believe shopping should be fun!
