“Our sought after Carmenere is our smallest production wine. We are currently the only winery in Canada producing this varietal on its own.” 

“After a fairly cool winter, the early wet spring of 2007 brought bud break a little ahead of schedule. The year continued with consistent warm dry weather through flowering. June, July and August were fairly nice and warm without any extreme temperatures. Although the year was a little milder than normal, the vines responded well yielding exceptional, intensely flavoured fruit.”
