Growing Conditions

The growing season for white grapes in 2012 was ideal with plentiful sunshine and a long, cool and dry fall for harvesting. Our Naramata Bench vineyard thrived under these conditions.

Winemaking

Considered by many to be the signature white grape varietal for the Okanagan, we tank fermented our Pinot Gris to allow the bright, aromatic characteristics of this popular varietal to really shine. Our winemaker added a touch of estate Gewürztraminer to contribute added spice appeal and a savoury quality.
