Limited Editions 2015
A showcase of five outstanding wines from some of the world’s most renowned regions
Pre-order by December 4, 2015
Barbera – Region – Piedmont, Italy (Video)
Piedmont is one of Italy’s most famed and beautiful wine regions. Situated at the base of the Alps, Piemonte in Italian means ‘at the foot of the mountains’. It has a cool continental climate with a hot growing season and severe winters. Vineyards grow along steep hillsides making this region as picturesque as it is productive.
Known for its higher acidity and lower tannins, Barbera is a very approachable wine. The LE15 Barbera is medium bodied with a sour cherry nose and a bit of earthiness. Bright, red fruit flavours of cherry and cranberry, with a hint of spice, tie it all together. Fresh acidity and smooth silky tannins make this a wine that can easily be enjoyed with or without food.
Sweetness – Dry Body – Medium Alcohol – 13.5%
Pinot Grigio Verduzzo (Video)
Region – Veneto, Italy
Located just north of Venice, Veneto stretches across most of the northern reaches of the Adriatic Sea. The Veneto is known to experience hot summers and cool winters, and thanks to its proximity to the sea, less extreme weather than other Northern regions. Visitors to the Veneto area have more than just wine to drink, with the picturesque city of Venice absorbing the majority of the region’s tourism
This unofficial ‘super venetian’ white is a blend of the vibrancy of Pinot Grigio with fresh citrus and pear complemented by the honeyed and ripe pineapple notes of Verduzzo. The zesty freshness and acidity is balanced by rounded tropical fruit flavours and a bit of nuttiness leading to a crisp, clean finish. This is Pinot Grigio with a bit of pop.
Sweetness – Dry Body – Light-Medium Alcohol – 13%
Mosaic Red – Region – Paso, California (Video)
Located along California’s famed Central Coast, between the busy cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco you’ll find Paso Robles Wine Country. Paso experiences a long growing season of warm days and cool nights which makes for vibrantly ripened grapes and beautiful wines. In addition to the abundance of vineyards, the region is also known for its mineral hot springs.
Like a true mosaic, the varietals in this wine each contribute their individual personality to create a harmonious blend. Merlot and Zinfandel bring round fruit notes while Petit Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon provide structure and complexity. Mosaic Red has aromas of red fruit with an undertone of smoke and spice. Flavours of juicy blackberry, raspberry, spice and smooth tannins give way to a lingering finish.
Sweetness – Dry Body – Medium-Full Alcohol – 14%
Gewurztraminer Verdelho Muscat (Video)
Region – Murray Darling, Australia
The Murray Darling is a vast region that sees the meeting of Australia’s two rivers, The Murray and The Darling near the city of Mildura. One of the most significant grape growing regions in Australia, the Murray Darling is over 350 kilometres wide and produces about 20% of Australia’s crush. The combination of heat, irrigation and fertile soil produces grapes which create soft, generously flavoured wines.
The trio of grapes that make up this wine are as distinctive as the blend itself. The wonderfully floral Gewurztraminer headlines as Verdelho’s tropical fruit characteristics play off of Muscat’s infamous grapey flavour. The resulting wine has a perfumed nose with vibrant flavours of pear, grapefruit, lime and mineral and an off-dry finish which makes this wine refreshingly fun to drink.
Sweetness – Off-Dry Body – Medium Alcohol – 12%
Fourtitude – Region – Riverland, Australia (Video)
Woven around the Murray River, the Riverland is a beautiful region of South Australia. Located about 2 1/2 hours north east of Adelaide. Blessed with vast open spaces, the region enjoys a consistent Mediterranean climate with long days of sunshine. The result of this agricultural haven is sun-kissed, vibrantly ripened grapes.
This powerful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Merlot showcases the quality and richness of the grapes from southern Australia. Crimson-purple in the glass, Fourtitude has aromas of blackcurrant, cedar and spice. Intense, mouth filling flavours of blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice blend seamlessly to a long dry finish.
Sweetness – Dry Body – Full Alcohol – 14.5%

Our first “User Group seminar” (Pictures)
On September 27th we held our first user group session with 16 people sharing their food recipes and experiences. We tasted some great food and a wide range of recipes. It was very rewarding for us to hear how much people are enjoying their experience and the food they can create. At the end we asked if the group would be prepared to cook for people who might be interested in the Traeger’s. They all agreed so we will be planning a session in late spring where those interested can attend and taste the food cooked on these incredible units.
We now rent units for weddings and family events. Check out our website for details
