At the tasting bar... Off the Beaten Path Wines - Fri. August 3, 2018

We decided to taste some less recognizable wines that are truly grown in BC. Most of use are most comfortable with tasting what we know or what we know of. Here are a few grape varietals that you may or may not have tasted but urge you to try.
Come find a new favorite BC Wine.

Off The Beaten Path Wines

Between 3:30-6:30pm 

St. Hubertus Chasselas 2015

Delicate and refreshing, with grassy floral notes on the nose, it is light bodied and finishes with the freshness of lemon zest. This is the quintessential Swiss Wine, perfect for your fondue or raclette party at the ski chalet! Great as an aperitif with salads, cheeses or try it with sushi and sashimi.

Gray Monk Rotberger 2017

This wine dances in the glass with its dark rose petal hue. The penetrating aroma shows spice, raspberry and currant notes, leading to flavours of spiced cherries and cranberries with linger on the long, lively finish. The ample flavours and full, firm texture herald a wine that is proud to be a true rosé. Serve chilled during al fresco luncheons and picnics with a wide selection of foods including pasta, turkey and pork.

The View Pinotage Rose 2017

It boasts intense aromas of strawberry and cotton candy followed by flavours of pink grapefruit and tart cranberry. A dry, crisp finish and pleasing fruit notes add to its elegance. Pinotage Rosé pairs well with poultry, arugula, strawberry and walnut salad, caprese salad or prosciutto and balsamic flatbread.

Summerhill Ehrenfelser 2016

Luxurious texture and wildly delicious layers of flavours and aromas. Notes of apricot, gooseberry, citrus, honeysuckle, orange blossom, cantalope, and peach, with undertones of tropical fruits. This celebrated rare grape variety thrives in the Okanagan.

Summerhill Baco Noir 2015

Deep red with balanced acidity and intense flavours. Very smooth and hearty with notes of chocolate, tobacco, blackberry, black currant, and integrated oak. 

Sperling Reserve Marechal Foch 2015

Our Foch vines, planted in the 1960s by Ann’s father Bert, produce low yields with intense, complex flavours. This rustic wine is made with smoky BBQs and long summer evenings in mind; or hearty braised dishes and cold winter nights.
