December 2020 Newsletter

Wishing you and yours a Very Merry December!

Well, here we are! The last month of 2020 and what a year it has been! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for supporting us through these crazy times! It is because of you that we are able to continue to create amazing products and keep our shop open.

Holiday Closure:
We will be closed December 23 – January 4
Our team will be taking a well deserved break for the holidays.

Check out our specials this month!

This month we are featuring two wine selections from our Cali 12 Collection Wines, made with 100% PURE, unadulterated wine juices imported from California along with 4 selections from the En Primeur Winery Series.

Our appointment book is filling up!

If you would like to bottle before we close for the holidays please call us to book your appointments at 250-652-8818.

Please excuse our showroom!

This year we have had to turn our showroom into a fermenting room for a couple of months. We are filled to the brim with fresh grape wines, literally! Things are a little tight and our customer occupancy limit is 4 so there is plenty of room to social distance.

Pre-Order your Cali 12 Collection Pure Juice Wines now!

The new harvest juices from California are now available. This year we have added two new wines to your selection.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and the hopes for a more calm and relaxed 2021. Cheers to your Health, Light and Love!

Stay Healthy & Happy!! Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Cheers from Derek, Melanie & the Flying Fish team

Annual Food Drive

Our Annual food drive for the Saanich Peninsula Lions Food Bank is starting early this year! The need for donations is urgent!

Please bring your donations of any non-perishable food items or hygiene items to the shop by Saturday December 19th!

For every pound of food you bring in, Flying Fish will match it! Last year we raised over $500 and collected so many boxes of food for our community.
