Orofino Riesling Clone 239 2018 $25.99
Green apple on the nose with flavours of lime cordial and wet slate. Plenty of zippy mouth-watering acidity! Equally dry as our 2017 Hendsbee Vineyard Riesling.
Orofino Gamay Noir 2020 $28.99
This small production wine gets more attention from wine writers than anything else we make. Why? It’s juicy, fresh, highly gulpable and tastes like the vineyards here in Cawston where it was grown. It’s the real deal.

Orofino Syrah 2018 $28.99
Aged 16 months in mostly older French oak barrels, look for big juicy red and black fruits with a hint of pepper and wild herbs. Wild fermented. Unfined and unfiltered
Orofino Red Bridge Red 2019 $33.99
This is a classic blend from Orofino that has a strong following every vintage. The name is a nod to a local landmark bridge that crosses the Similkameen River. Soft tannins and notes of black cherry and licorice. 42% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Syrah. Juicy and approachable and just straight up delicious.
Orofino Beleza 2018 $44.99
Built for comfort, not for speed, this ode to Bordeaux is one for the cellar. Rich black fruits mixed with spicy notes and classic Similkameen minerality. Our best barrels make up the blend. Always unfined and unfiltered to best show off our terroir.
