Product Description

Pinot Noir is our biggest planting and we grow this grape in all three of our vineyards. We grow mainly Dijon clone 115 which ripens a little earlier than many of the Pinot Noir clones.  We make this wine every year and choose our harvest date at a good balance of ripeness and acidity.  To give the wine its lovely raspberry cranberry color we destem and leave the juice on the skins and the seeds for anywhere from 30 – 40 hours, then press and ferment at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks.   Friends Mike and Arlene at Quail Rock Vineyard also grow this varietal for us on their lovely property  just east of the Saanich Fairgrounds.   Their country chic B&B suite overlooks the vineyard and with its 3 room suite  and private deck is the ultimate in luxury and retreat!
