R&D Red Blend Released!

July 1st, 2015

We’re excited to introduce our newest tier of wines: ‘R&D by Culmina’. The first release from this playful, inquisitive tier is the 2013 R&D Red Blend, which is available now here.


R&D, short for Research and Development, refers to the experimental approach taken by Don, Elaine, and Sara in the development of their 56-acre estate vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench. It’s also a tribute to Don and his twin brother Ron, and their investigative spirit growing up on the family farm in Manitoba.

The 2013 R&D Red Blend is largely Merlot, with bits and bobs of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This rich, full-bodied wine screams for a second glass on a Tuesday night. For research, of course.

Rated 91 points by John Schreiner, this R&D Red Blend is “generous on the palate with flavours of black currant, dark chocolate and coffee.”

The 2013 R&D Red Blend can be purchased at our new online wine boutique here. Complimentary shipping is offered across Canada with a purchase of 12 bottles or more.
