A Blonde Blend


Spinnakers 30th Anniversary
Watch for it....

Set to release to the public through Spinnakers to mark their 30th Anniversary...yes...the Muse Mermaid is holding a beer!

As a 30th anniversary celebration we have teamed up with Spinnakers to do a Brewers Special Series Beer.

We love the beer and We love the label!

It is fermented using rare hops and our fresh pressed Ortega juice. It will be released Dec. 1st, 2014.

Good things come to those who make great wines!

We wish we could offer it at Muse, but you'll have to stock up from the various Spinnakers locations on this one.

Looks like blondes are having all the fun again! :)

Cirque du Chablis opens July 19th

Peninsula Players Presents

"Cirque du Chablis"

Opening Night - Saturday July 19th

The curtain goes up at 7:30 pm to reveal another fantastic production by The Peninsula Players for the outdoor summer theatre at Muse Winery.

A ragtag band of circus freaks hankers for something more than cleaning up after elephants and biting heads off of chickens.  When former starlet Serafina offers them their own vaudeville show, they leap at the chance! But between a scheming ringmaster, a secretive starlet, and a lovesick cheese mogul, the freaks soon learn that life is not always a barrel of monkeys.

There will be a total of 7 performances, so make sure to plan ahead.  For the evening performances Bistro Muse will be offering a special Harvest Table buffet for $29 plus GST
Reservations will be required.

Mark your calendars - performance dates are:

Saturdays - July 19th & 26th and August 9th & 16th     7:30 pm  curtain

We hope to see you out for another summer of thespians entertaining us in the vineyard!

May Artists at Muse

 Muse Winery presents our artists for the month of May...

Jennifer McIntyre & 

 Wendy Oppelt

Meet the Artists  
Sunday May 4th 
from 12 to 4 pm

Don't despair if you can't make it out- their work will be on Exhibition in the Bacchus Room for the entire month of May.

The room is alive with colour and you can feel the joy in the work of these two talented women.

We are delighted to have on Exhibition & Sale for the month of May the work of these two wonderful artists.
Jennifer McIntyre' s art explores colour combinations, contrast of darks and lights, exploration of dominance and subtlety, consideration of nuances of composition that come together to create the unique, unusual and captivating.

Wendy Oppelt’s work celebrates life. Her artistic style is expressive, using vibrant color and strong composition. Her use of textured acrylic creates stunning contrasts of bright and dark shades emphasized by a glass-like gloss to make her pieces shine like pure sun.
