Looking for a great wine for a Wednesday night, or pretty much any other night, while you’re Sheltering in Place at home? With our winery temporarily closed for tastings, we’ve launched a series of short videos on our new wine releases that discusses how the wines were made.
For our first episode, join winemaker Mark Hopley in our winery barrel room as he tastes through our 2019 Pinot Gris Viognier. Made with approximately 2/3 Pinot Gris and 1/3 Viogner grapes from the Oliver/Osoyoos area, this unoaked white wine is beautifully refreshing and fantastic for enjoying on your patio with some light appetizers.
In our second episode, Mark discusses our 2018 Selected Barrels Merlot, made with grapes from our vineyard manager’s vineyards here in Oliver along with fruit from our own Golden Mile Bench estate. This approachable wine was fermented in our Italian Ganimede fermenters for gentle flavour and colour extraction and is delightful with grilled pork tenderloin and charred Okanagan cherries.
