We continue our journey through our rose shelf. There are already rose wines that are sold out for the season. We are tasting you on some new or almost sold out rose wines so you can try before they sell out. Most of the BC rose wines have moved away from sweet and are mostly a dry to off dry style with a salmon color to them. Unless they are made from Cab Franc then they tend to be a bit more intense in color. Dry in style but darker in color. Hope you can join us!

More Summer Rose Sippers
Summerhill Alive Rose 2017
True to name, this organic pinot noir rosé is lively and juicy in the glass. Sourced from their biodynamically farmed home vineyard in Kelowna as well as from other organic vineyard blocks around the Okanagan, this medium/light hued rosé carries wild strawberries, perfumed raspberries sprinkled with spice and bedded with stones. Finishing dry, with a slight bump of sugar offset by upright acidity. Highly drinkable, friendly and bright.
Gold Hill Rose 2017
The Rose is made from Cabernet Franc grapes in a Saignee method. It has aromas of lilies, jasmine, cherries, apricots and raspberries. It is made slightly off dry, with a nice clean citrus finish with subtle lingering flavours of strawberry, pear and hints of grapefruit and passionfruit.
Black Market Omerta 2016
The vibrant nose has the hallmark aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry. On the palate, the entry is bright and juicy, dominated by raspberry, wild strawberry and rhubarb. Crisp acidity with only the slightest hint of sweetness, this wine finishes dry.
Red Rooster Rare Bird Rose 2017
‘Pretty in Pink’ colour with a summer fresh aroma of strawberry, watermelon, crab apple, red currant, cherry and rose petal. The medium frame is supported by refreshing acidity. Flavours of red berry, currant and red cherry fill the mouth. Refreshing red fruits and red berry tea notes linger on the finish of this extra-dry rosé.
