With over three decades of wine growing experience, we believe that we have the right varietals planted in the right sites.
We grow the Okanagan aromatics Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Ehrenfelser plus the more full-bodied whites; Chardonnay and Pinot Gris to the north at CedarCreek Vineyards in Kelowna. Our vineyards in Osoyoos - with the extra heat units - are dedicated to our Merlot, Meritage, Syrah and the occasional Cabernet Sauvignon. Almost half of the CedarCreek Vineyard is planted to the quintessential food wine – Pinot Noir.
CedarCreek is proud to announce that their 2014 Platinum Block 3 Riesling was named Best Canadian White Wine over 15£ at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards in London. Rated 95 Points, the win follows last year’s Decanter World Wine Award for their 2012 Platinum Block 2 Pinot Noir as Best Canadian Red Wine over 15£.
Our wines are carefully grown, caressed, and finessed rather than simply made, bottled, or produced. We believe that wine is elevated from product to craft by careful attention to all aspects of viticulture and winemaking; choice of land, selection of varietals, clones, rootstocks, pruning, cropping, hang time, press method, barrels, time in oak, blending and bottle aging.
We take all the necessary steps and then a few extra to express the highest quality of fresh fruit and natural acidity from our region in every bottle. We craft two tiers of elegant wines and work extremely hard to ensure that you enjoy your last glass as much as your first. Our very best wines are designated "Platinum" - it's our reminder that the choices we make have to add up to one better than gold. We believe that we make the very best wines in the Okanagan Valley. In fact, we believe our wines are as good as any made in the world, but we will provide that, rather than claim it. And the results show in every bottle. On that, you have our word.
