Chilliwack Water Chlorination

In light of the new chlorination of Chilliwack’s water, we have had many inquiries regarding how this effects our services.
Yes we do have a water filter here! Our water treatment system is working GREAT! It removes sediment, lead, rust, VOCs, radon,
& 99% of the Chlorine! It tastes Great! And better yet, it makes amazing award winning wine and beer!

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has
been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly,
any other purely sensory thing.”
– Ernest Hemingway

“Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized.”
– Andre Simon

Cheers!
