Just love the new wine label we created for Seaside Pearl Farmgate Winery: The Connaught Syrah 2018.
There is a story behind every bottle of wine, and every wine name. We discovered that names inspired by Mount Lehman’s history really work for our wines and embody Seaside Pearl.
BC Electric Railway’s The ‘Connaught Car’ started its life as BCER 1304, built in June 1911 alongside two identical cars. Unlike its twins, BCER 1304 had a special fate. In 1912, it was chosen by B.C. Electric Railway as part of a welcome celebration for the Duke and Duchess of Connaught and their daughter Princess Patricia.
For the ceremony the car returned with a fresh coat of paint, bearing the royal coat of arms and the name “Connaught.” After the Lieutenant Governor’s speech, the Duke of Connaught broke the red white and blue ribbon. The Connaught was recently restored by Fraser Valley Railway Historical Society.
Can’t wait to go for a train ride!
