Pinot Gris by Mt. Boucherie
ripe pear - citrus - mineral - fruit cup
The Okanagan/Similkameen is this kind of place. Here winemakers strive to express what’s distinctive about their region, creating wines that are uniquely British Columbian. Our appellations are at the northernmost limit of wine growing, claiming the territory of last frontier. Here, grape quality is ultimately enhanced by the vines’ struggle to yield ripe fruit in a shorter growing season. To some, it might seem miraculous that grapes can thrive here, but thanks to the incredible lakes, hills, and soils, they do, and they do very special things.
The West Kelowna vineyard, located on the eastern shadow of the former volcano Mount Boucherie, is home to our wine shop and winery production facility. The grapes thrive in the sandy loam, clay and limestone soils rich with mineral deposits and volcanic rock. The summers are hot and provide long daylight hours.
