Calliope

Calliope
Canada
Phone: 877-392-6861
http://www.calliopewines.com
The Wyse Family - founders of Burrowing Owl Estate Winery in Oliver BC - is proud to introduce a line up of wines under a new label: Calliope. Pronounced ka-LIE-oh-pee, this captivating name pays homage to a tiny hummingbird which is found in southern British Columbia and is Canada's smallest bird. The word Calliope is of Greek origin meaning 'beautiful voice' and was chosen by the Wyse family in recognition of their interest in birds and music. Calliope is also the Greek Muse of Eloquence and Poetry.

Grapes for Calliope wines are carefully sourced from local vineyards in the South Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. Winemakers are granted the freedom to escape from tradition and utilize their creative talents to find new frontiers, explore new taste profiles and create delightful, expressive, fresh characteristics in each varietal or blend. With a focus on early consumption, oak applications are minimized and closures are typically screw caps for convenience. Calliope wines are designed to pair with casual lunches on the patio, or with contemporary cuisine. This line of wines will complement one's own Burrowing Owl collection, as they are made with the same commitment to flavour and quality.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
