Chilling Guide
Not all wines are chilled the same. This handy guide will help you get it just right. 

Sparkling Wines
8◦C
2.5 hours in the fridge or 25 minutes in ice water.

White Wines 
10◦C  
2 hours in the fridge or 20 minutes in ice water. 

Rosé Wines
12◦C  
1.5 hours in the fridge or 15 minutes in ice water. 

Red Wines   
Wait. Red wines? Chilled? Yes!
Most people serve red wines warmer than the intended cellar temperature of 18◦C, and lighter reds like Pinot Noir and Gamay can be chilled a bit further.
14◦C  
1 hour in the fridge or 10 minutes in ice water.

BAGS OR BOTTLES?
More and more consumers are finding that wines packaged in bags or boxes are more convenient to their lifestyle. Many customers like the simplicity of bagged wine, especially for camping, cottaging, or sharing.  

Did you know that  Wine Kitz Ottawa  offers this option? Boxed and bagged wine are the new wave of wine consumer packaging and the in-store cost of these new formats is  LESS THAN half the price of boxed wine in the LCBO . Also, we are able to offer so many more varietal and wine style options than are available commercially.
Why consider boxed or bagged wine?
- Lighter & more compact for easier storage;
- Recyclable and lesser carbon footprint;
- No need for shrink tops, corks or corkscrew;
- Fresh for up to 6 weeks after opening.
Ask us how we can help you save time and money with these new packaging options or, better yet, come visit us to see for yourself!

Like many of you, summer truly is my favourite season.

So far this summer I've managed some very lazy days sitting on docks, sitting on beaches and sitting in boats, always with a glass of refreshing wine in hand. August promises more of the same.
 
Even though the Wine Kitz Ottawa Team has been making the most of this lovely weather, we are still working hard every day to ensure individual care is given to each one of our customers and each one of your wines. Extraordinary customers, extraordinary wines!

Please take a few minutes to savour the sunny days, to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and to share some great  Wine Kitz Ottawa wines with friends and family.

Cheers!

"Wine to me is passion. It's family and friends. It's warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It's culture. It's the essence of civilization and the art of living."
