Phantom Creek Estates, the Okanagan Valley’s newest destination winery situated on the Black Sage Bench, is excited to announce its partnership with Stile Brands – an importer and marketer of premium wines – to launch its highly acclaimed portfolio of wines throughout British Columbia. Phantom Creek Estates has enjoyed an overwhelmingly positive reception since its June 2020 debut and has achieved full allocation of its iconic Phantom Creek Vineyard wines.
“We are excited about partnering with Stile Brands to represent our wines in the region and extend our distribution beyond our early supporters, Hawksworth, Nightingale, Mott 32, and Hy’s Steakhouse,” said Santiago Cilley, CEO of Phantom Creek Estates.
As an immediate result of this partnership, a selection of Phantom Creek Estates wines – including the Becker Vineyard Cuvee, Estate Red Blend, Pinot Gris, Viognier, and Riesling – will be available to restaurants and select fine wine retailers. Phantom Creek Estates’ Alsace-influenced 2017 Pinot Gris was awarded the highest score for B.C. white wines by internationally acclaimed wine critic Jancis Robinson, while the winery’s remaining portfolio of wines all received scores above 90 points by Anthony Gismondi, one of Canada’s most influential wine critics.
“Stile Brands is extremely fortunate to work with Phantom Creek Estates,” said Carmen D’Onofrio Jr., managing partner at Stile Brands. “We represent some of the most iconic vineyards from around the world, and Phantom Creek Estates is a great addition to our portfolio of family-owned wineries.”
