A lovely, vibrant BC rose made from Cabernet Franc grapes. Aromas of field strawberries and woodland berries. Mouth-watering and juicy. Enjoy on its own as an aperitif or with seafood.
Rosé food pairings: seasoned pork tenderloin, crabcakes, creamy chicken carbonara.

A beautifully expressive Rosé made from Cabernet Franc grapes from the Okanagan Valley. The cooler 2019 Okanagan grape growing season allowed for slower ripening, more complex aromas, and a crisper finish... Perfect ingredients for making spectacular Rosé!
Crisp and lively, with aromas of grapefruit and cranberries, carrying through to a citrus finish.
Perfect paired with cheese and charcuterie boards!
Tasted April 2021.

Ideal for drinking on a patio with friends, the Wayne Gretzky Rosé 2019, from the Okanagan Valley, offers aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, dried herbs, chalk and sweet tobacco. Made from Cabernet Franc, this light-bodied wine will be at its best chilled and paired with fresh fruit. The finish is fruity and shows good acidity. Palate: Red plum, strawberry, bell pepper, graphite, saline and sweet tobacco. Enjoy.

A refreshing, dry Rose from the Okanagan Valley. Lovely acidity with notes of strawberry, peach blossoms and watermelon. Medium-bodied with a generous finish. Pair with a shrimp cocktail and mild seafood sauce.

Summer in a glass! This lovely pink hued wine has aromas of cherry, strawberry, and delicious apple, lime and floral. It is refreshing and crisp and a perfect compliment to fish cakes and a green salad on a warm day.
|David Skinner rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Copper pink. The nose is generous with raspberries, peach, apple and floral notes. Medium acidity and refreshing. The palate reveals strawberry and peaches. A medium finish that continues to drive the fruit flavours.
A great brunch wine (or patio anytime). Served this with a strawberry French toast rollup.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Picnic in the park wine! Aromas of strawberry, lime, ripe melon, and a hint of peach. Dry, light bodied, medium+ acidity, with just a hint of tart fruit, balanced with ripe berry and vibrant citrus hints and just a slight floral note. Enjoy with smoked salmon.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A pale, salmony coloured Rosé from Okanagan’s Wayne Gretzky Estates. Aromas of fuzzy peaches, gala apple and lingering limestone minerals with flavours that bring forth strawberry, ripe melon and orange clementine notes. Light bodied and very easy drinking. A great pairing with seared scallops or a mixed green salad topped with grilled prawns. Enjoy!
|L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely copper pink hued wine, medium bodied and dry, with a big hit of peach in the aroma plus strawberry and watermelon. Paired well with grilled chicken and vegetables marinated with lemon and garlic vinaigrette and a mild tasting salad of organic greens and peppers with apple cider vinaigrette. The inherent sweetness in the vegetables brought out by grilling complemented the zesty , food friendly nature of the wine nicely.
