During the Virtual Tasting you will get a chance to learn more about these selected three featured wines:
Estate Red Blend
This rich full-bodied Okanagan Red is a tribute to the art of the blend. The 2016 edition features twelve labels, each with a different photograph by local artist, Lionel Trudel. The photos were taken at our Estate vineyards and shot in the iconic “Chiaroscuro” style, literally meaning light-dark.
The 2016 RED is a blend of our sustainably farmed estate vineyards on the Black Sage Bench, including Phantom Creek Vineyard and Becker Vineyard. Each lot is made with the same exacting standards as our single vineyard wines to best showcase this unique South Okanagan sub-region.
From two idyllic vineyard blocks in Okanagan Falls, the 2017 Pinot Gris was slowly fermented to dryness over seven months by indigenous yeasts for added depth and weight. A portion was also aged in traditional oak casks, providing additional richness and intriguing spice notes. Take advantage of our online store or purchase through our cellar door when visiting us.

Merlot thrives at Becker Vineyards higher elevation on the upper terrace of the Black Sage Bench. The 2016 Becker Vineyard Merlot was handpicked over six days from October 14 to 19 to ensure all blocks were harvested at optimal ripeness. The result is a full-bodied wine that combines freshness with generous, ripe fruit.

See you on August 27th, cheers!
