Summer Wine Release:
Pinot Gris, Amphora VR, Small Cap Pinot Noir

We find ourselves feeling hopeful about what summer will bring.  What better way to bring in the new season than with new vintages of our Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and our limited production Amphora VR.

Pinot Gris 2020 - $21.99*

Pinot Gris ripens easily and consistently produces an enjoyable, fruit forward and food friendly wine.

The nose is bright with lime peel essence and soft nectarine. Green apple and spring blossoms, with a slight stoniness, enliven the palate. Partially fermented in concrete eggs, creates amazing mouthfeel and texture.

Pinot Noir 2019 - $35.99*

With only 240 cases made, this IPO will go quick Exclusive to Preferred Shareholders.

Whole berry fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks and the wine was then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

This vintage starts with sweet tobacco, cranberry, and raspberry on the nose. The palate offers some earthiness along with the sweet tart sensation of tiny wild foraged strawberries. This is a medium body Pinot, soft tannins, with nice acidity. 

Amphora VR - 28.99*

Pivot - who would have thought last year that that word would conjure such strong emotions. One pivot we made last year was adding our outdoor boardroom tasting area and your response was so positive we going to keep it.

With BC's 4 step re-opening plan in place, we are excited and hopeful we will be hosting more of you in the tasting room very soon. Thank you for using the online booking system. 

We look forward to welcoming you, but please only come for a visit if you are feeling well. All covid protocols will be in place. See website for details.










Amphora - VR
Viognier Roussanne 

Our initial foray into the world of natural wine started in 2013. Our latest release is 2020 Amphora VR.

This vintage is 41% Viognier and 59% Roussanne. We know that it should actually be called Amphora RV but really, who wants to buy an Orange RV.

At harvest, we placed the whole berries in three 500L terracotta Amphorae, at which point they were left covered and untouched for 90 days. This hands-off approach resulted in slower extraction from the grape skins, while the tannin worked as a natural antioxidant to the wine. 

This wine is often referred to as an “Orange” wine. This is due to the time spent on skins which give it it’s orange hue, a hit of tannin, and its unique flavour. It is unfiltered and unfined, resulting in some cloudiness. This VQA wine is not your typical white and should be enjoyed with an open-mind and as a new adventure into "orange/natural wine".

Those that like it, like it a lot. The Roussanne prominence shows its dry herbal tea note, along with dried apricot. Makes a perfect aperitivo.
