Great wines are born from the courage to see what is possible. Over the past 19 years, the team at Poplar Grove has worked with the estate vineyards to nurture their potential into each bottle. Poplar Grove’s vision has remained the same: to make world-class wines that reflect the spirit of the Okanagan Valley. Each year, the wine making team handcrafts the Poplar Grove wines with care, being true to their mandate to guide the winemaking process with little or no interruption of the natural process. Poplar Grove is one of the original 5 wineries on the Naramata Bench, a wine growing area just outside of Penticton, British Columbia. The winery was founded in 1993, when Ian Sutherland dedicated 2.5 acres of land to the planting of Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. The first vintage was released in the fall of 1995, with the Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc receiving top honours at the Okanagan International Wine Festival.

In 2007, Tony Holler became Poplar Grove’s majority owner & President. Ian Sutherland & Barrie Sali completed this newly defined ownership team. The Holler family brought with them 100 acres of prime vineyard sites located throughout the Southern Okanagan Valley which allows Poplar Grove wines to be made from 100% estate grown fruit. The viticulture team supports the estate vineyards by practicing a sustainable farming program that works with the complexity and variability of the individual vineyards. July 2011, the doors to Poplar Grove’s brand new, 9500 square foot, state-of-the-art winery opened. Designed to intertwine with the natural landscape and topography, the new winery space is home to a working winery, showcase barrel hall, expansive tasting room, year-round destination restaurant called the Vanilla Pod and one of the finest views the Okanagan Valley has to offer.

Poplar Grove is focused on six core wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and a signature blend called The Legacy. Each year, the grapes are hand picked & hand sorted to guarantee that only the finest fruit makes it into the ferment. A barrel aging and bottle cellaring program have been implemented to ensure the wines are released when they are ready to drink. Poplar Grove white wines are released the year following harvest to preserve the primary fruit flavours. The red wines spend a minimum of 18 months maturing in French Oak barrels and an additional 18 – 30 months developing in the bottle so that they can be enjoyed upon release.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
