Rosé All Day | Our visit to BC wine country was one of the best media trips I’ve ever been on. Beautiful location, wonderful company and lots of delicious vino! I’ve rounded up my favourite vineyards we visited in the region on stylecalling.com
And it's in! Our first pick of the 2018 vintage was our Arneis.....living up to its nickname, little rascal.
Soaking up all the after work patio time that I can while it lasts. #wineoclock
Characterful, idiosyncratic, tidy & tight blend of muscat, muller thurgau & gew on the tasting bench tonight. Well done @hatchwines. #bcwine
Absolutely ‘Note Well’. The flagship of Black Hills Estate Winery, Nota Bene has been a BC wine collector’s item pretty much since the 1999 inaugural vintage. Expect the 2016 vintage to get snapped up. 🍇 Dark plum with some violet perfume on the nose, followed by dark plum, blackcurrant, cedar greens, light pepper and earthy, wet forest-floor. Beautiful bright fruit balanced with wild and savoury notes. Full-bodied with good tannic structure, but soft and elegant at 13.5% abv. Well integrated with a long finish. Great wine.🍷 This Meritage is a “Left Bank” inspired blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Merlot (40%) and Cabernet Franc (15%).🍷 Ideally you would put this one away for 5 years. But this vintage is already showing pretty nicely despite its youth. So if you can’t hold off for that long, decant for an hour or two before tasting and get your steak, creamy wild mushroom pasta or lentil stew ready. 🍽 Black Hills Estate Winery is located on the sun-drenched beautiful Black Sage Bench between Oliver and Osoyoos (just down the road from wineries such as Burrowing Owl, Bartier Bros and Church & State). Very cool tasting room there where you can experience their wine portfolio pool-side, complete with DJ and misters... ☀️🎧 Tasted this one @marquiswinecellars
last week as part of a Release tasting with @blackhillswine
. I also really liked the Black Hills 2015 Syrah. 🍷🍷#blackhillswine #ExploreBCWine #bcwine #cabernetfranc #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #blacksagebench #redwinelover #winetasting

The awesome ladies of our vineyard crew making sure the new Cabernet Franc plants are doing well. The vineyard crew is such a hard working group of people and we appreciate all the work they do everyday! 🌱😊🍇💪
The barrels are ready - now just waiting on the reds to start arriving at the winery.
Tomorrow is Round 7 of #LibraryWineWednesday
in our tasting room. We’re ending off September and gearing up for our Highly Suspicious wine club fall shipment with our 2012 Tannat. It is our oldest Tannat in our Moon Curser label and a wine we age in the bottle over 2 years before we release it. Tannat is such a small production wine that new releases are now reserved for our wine club only. Let's see how it's tasting now with 4.5 years of aging!
Now, don’t get your hopes up about smuggling some home with you though. These library wines we open will not be available for general sale, but will be available to taste so you can see how our wines age. You might just be tempted to start a library of your own.
Feeling the urge to crush some grapes? Get your 6-8 person team together and register for the Grape Stomp at Township 7’s Langley winery Oct 27-28. To participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 604-532-1766 by Oct 1. Only a limited number of teams will be accepted so don’t delay. Details at township7.com

Made with 100% Ontario VQA grapes, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris, our Wicked White is clear, bright, aromatic and fresh. #ravenconspiracy
Hidden Chapel Winery actually has a small chapel hidden beyond the grass at the end of the property that was built by the previous owner for church services and weddings. We enjoyed their easy drinking whites named Amazing Grace, White Wedding and The Flying Nun. We also said hi to their dog D.O.G.

What's more fall than cozying up with a bottle of Phoenix red wine and enjoying the coloured leaves falling outside your window? 🍷🍂 100% Merlot, deep red and rich. Bright cherry aromas and flavours followed by medium body, soft tannins and a clean finish 🍒
How do your wine choices change with the seasons? Our Syrah and Cabernet Franc are perfect transitional reds. Both are medium to full-bodied with a distinctly peppery, herbaceous finish. #sandhillwines
Okanagan wine two days in a row. And I nailed both blind tastings too! #irock
This Viognier from @timewinery
has stone fruit and florals on the nose, low acidity and full body. It was a great accompaniment to our mid-week-day-off lunch of cheese, salami and crackers. My hubby is a huge fan of Viognier and the Okanagan does them well! 🥂🇨🇦 #bcwine #penticton
What was your “starter” wine? Your “gateway” so to speak? Mine was @lacremawines
Pinot Noir, while working as a hostess at an oyster bar in Calgary. I fell in love, and the flood gates opened very quickly thereafter.
