Estate grown, these signature vines act as an expression of the vineyard itself. The crispness of cool rain, green apple and honeysuckle flowers expand across the palate to reveal a mineral-like finish that lingers unendingly in the mouth.

Blended with a predominance of deep, silky merlot, this collaboration of merlot and cabernet grapes contains round artful notes of french oak, black cherries, distant vanilla and finishes with a smooth, complexity of flavor.
Grapes originate from Stonequail Vineyard, Oliver, B.C.
Second generation French oak fermentation lends this expressive blend its smooth nose of rich stone fruits and blossoms. Carmelized butter tones can be recognized in its smooth creamy finish.
Grapes originate from Osprey Vineyard, Oliver B.C.
A unique blend of 70% Pinot Auxerrois from Vancouver Island and 30% unoaked Chardonnay. A waft of ripe citrus and stone fruits greets you, followed by a hint of orange blossom. There are flavours of white peach, citrus and apple with a creamy texture and refreshing finish.
2010 and 2011
100% locally grown berries and fruits contribute to the intricate flavour of our unique Bumbleberry wine. Slightly dry and without the overwhelming syrupy qualities of port or sherry, Bumbleberry will grasp you with its delicate flavor of blackberries, raspberries, black currant and kiwi with additional infusions of strawberry and rhubarb.
" It's like grandma's best mixed-berry pie, without the crust! "
