Stags Hollow Visit 2016
So it all started with Vidal…….
One of the first Wines I ever tasted from B.C a number of years ago was Stag’s Hollow ‘Simply Noir’
A Blend of Gamay Pinot Noir and Merlot ! It indelibly left an impression on me and my young amateur palate. Now I consider them to be one of the most innovative Wineries in the Okanagan. They own two Vineyards. Their Estate vineyard and Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard
That being said Larry Gerelus seems to be a risk taker. Under the Guidance of Winemaker Dwight Sick Larry and Lynda embrace a passion for their wine making..
At my last visit there last year’ I had the opportunity to talk to both Dwight and Larry about how the winery got started and also their vision for the coming vintages. Fascinating stuff!
We tasted some new and older vintages sitting on Larry’s Patio and I talked with Dwight who was fascinating to chat with He has an intimate knowledge and connection with the land and I was lucky he was willing to chat with me .
This year they have released some Interesting Wines notably the Delicious Albarino and there outstanding Syrah
They also had their first release of Dolcetto which garnered themgreat accolades
The Vidal 2015 was off dry with lemon color Ripe stone fruit, Mango and crisp acidity. Great summer sipper !
Thank you to Stag’s Hollow for their time and sharing their story with me
