A Summer to Savour
As the sun begins to set a little earlier and the air carries a hint of autumn, we find ourselves reflecting on the incredible summer we've had here at Ex Nihilo Vineyards. It's been a season of warmth, laughter, and community, and we couldn't have done it without each and every one of you. With gratitude in our hearts, we want to take a moment to thank you for making Summer 2023 so unforgettable.
The moment summer began, our vineyard came alive with the vibrant colors of lush vines, the scent of blooming flowers, and the sounds of clinking glasses and joyful chatter. From the first day, we knew it was going to be something special. Our members and guests arrived with enthusiasm, eager to savor the finest wines and create lasting memories.
Chantal Kreviazuk LlVE at Ex Nihilo
A true highlight of Summer 2023 was hosting members and guests for our concert with Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk. The two-night private concert event, which took place on July 28 and 29, 2023, saw remarkable displays of generosity during live auctions resulting in an impressive $23,600 raised in support of the acclaimed humanitarian organization WarChild Canada. We are so grateful for your enthusiasm for this concert and fundraiser and we can't wait to announce what next summer has in store for music in the vineyard.
BC Wildfires: A Challenging Time
However, Summer 2023 was not without its challenges. In August, our beautiful region was faced with a wildfire crisis that tested our strength and resilience. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you who supported us during this difficult time. Your well-wishes, acts of kindness, and unwavering loyalty meant the world to us. It was a stark reminder of the power of community, and we are grateful to be a part of such a supportive and caring one.
As the days grow shorter and the vines begin to change their colours, we look forward to the beauty that autumn will bring. And beyond that, we eagerly anticipate what the future holds for Ex Nihilo Vineyards. We have exciting plans and new experiences in store for you, and we can't wait to share them.
In closing, we want to express our deepest gratitude to our members and guests for making Summer 2023 one for the books. Your unwavering support and dedication make Ex Nihilo Vineyards what it is—a place of warmth, community, and exceptional wines. As we move forward, know that you are an integral part of our family, and we look forward to creating many more memories together in the seasons to come.
