Terravant’s focus will be with Summerland’s Coastal Collection wines which consist of a Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon with a targeted retail price of $14.99. They will also continue to offer popular single vineyard wines such as the Theresa-Noelle and Fiddlestix Pinot Noirs along with a select offering of tasting room only wines.
