We’re welcoming back Paul and Jayne of Saxon Estate Winery to come and share their fall release wines with us at Jan’s. Saxon Estate Winery is a family run organic winery in Summerland B.C. Jan and I dropped in at the winery this summer, and started planning this dinner with Paul and Jayne.

Jan and the team will be pairing up some great dishes to go along with Saxon’s fresh organic wines. The last event with Paul and Jayne was a sold out event, and this one is looking to be as well. Book your tickets soon!

Privato Wines now at Jan’s

Speaking of wines, we tasted some great BC wines at this year’s VQA event. There were many excellent wineries to discover. We’ve started updating the wine list at Jan’s. Our first new addition are the excellent wines from Privato Winery. We met with Debbie Woodward of Privato and loved the wines!

Privato is a small batch family run winery in the Kamloops area. We’ve added their delicious Chardonnay and Double Gold award winning Pinot Noir to our list. Come on in and try them out!
