We have traveled the breadth of the Okanagan Valley meeting winemakers and barrel sampling in order to bring to you wines from established producers in addition to discovering new wineries of merit. Winemakers from the Naramata Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Falls, and the Similkameen are growing a wide variety of grapes and making wines worthy of international recognition. From off-dry, full fruit whites to full-bodied reds, the Okanagan Valley provides us with great wines many, of which are unavailable outside British Columbia.
We have also touched on our favorite growing areas of the Old World in order to offer a selection of French and Italian wine featuring Brunello’s and Barolo’s in addition to gems from the Bordeaux and Pinot Noir from Burgundy. New World offerings like Barossa Valley Shiraz, Pinot Noir from Oregon State, and Malbec from Argentina round out our portfolio.
Our white wines represent a broad range from an Alsatian Pinot Gris to a single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand along with California Chardonnay.
Our philosophy is to provide you with distinctive wines, accompanied by the knowledge to assist you in choosing the right wine to enhance your dining experience.
