I think that these kits are available in Canada only, but I'm not certain. Dealers can order them this week. I ordered the California Syrah, and hope to have it tomorrow. The other varieties are Okanagan Chardonnay, Niagara Gewurztraminer, Washington Pinot Gris, California Cabernet Sauvignon, and California Merlot.

Last year, I made the Washingtoin Merlot. Had the first bottle a week or so ago. Loved it.

These are En Primeur level kits (at least they were last year) without grape skins. They are rushed (hightail'd) from harvest to kit to market, so these are limited edition 2009 harvest kits.

I would like to make the Niagara Gewurztraminer, but have too much white wine in the house.

I have placed my order for HighTail Niagara Gewurztraminer yesterday.
Should be here by the end of the month. If you have problem with wine - I'll pay shipping :p

Why are these Canada only? That just makes me want them more! Are they really good quality? I might be tempted to drive over the border if they are amazing, just to say I did.

I'm sipping a 1 year old ( well almost) Californian Hightail Merlot right now and although it would do well with a bit more age its absolutlely FANTASTIC right now!!
