Katherine reviewed this wine:

A 47% Viognier, 38% Roussanne, 15% Marsanne Southern Rhone style blend. The wine is a beautiful golden colour, full and lush in the mouth, with a finish that goes on forever. Notes of tangerine, vanilla and honey. A wine meant to savour and enjoy. Last year’s vintage won a Lieutenant Governor’s Award.

Katherine reviewed this wine:

Pretty pink colour, this fun frizzante rose is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Slightly fizzy in the glass, a burst of tiny bubbles on the tongue. Cherry notes with a sweetish, cream soda finish. A great value wine made for hot, sunny days on the patio with friends.

First Wine

I can't remember. My sister and I used to drink wine with our Sunday dinners when we were kids. My parents thought since the French did it, it must be okay.So my love of wine goes back many, many years.

Unusual Wine Experience

Not unusual but my most memorable wine experience was helping my dad plant grape vines on the 25-acres of bare land he bought back in the early ‘90s in the Okanagan. Whenever I pass by the now flourishing vineyard on Black Sage Road, I think of all the hard work my dad put into it to get it to where it is today. And I wonder how the vines I planted made out.
