Over 63 acres of the prestigious Golden Mile Bench in Oliver, BC are home to C.C. Jentsch Cellars where the Jentsch family has been farming fruit since 1929. Amber Jones, head Winemaker, is crafting Chris Jentsch’s estate-grown fruit into five premium labels that are almost as hard to pronounce as his last name, he jokes. Viognier, Gewurztraminer, Syrah, ‘The Dance’ (Rose) and `The Chase` establish the portfolio. Both ‘The Dance’ and `The Chase` are Bordeaux-style blends, but not just your typical three-grape brew, they boast 5 of the 6 classic Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. All of these luscious wines come from sun-soaked, mature, Okanagan fruit and with a very reasonable price tag.
The new tastingroom doors are open starting May 1st, 2014! Look for the Rabbit and Tiger and stop by and try the wines at 4522 Hwy 97 between Oliver and Osoyoos. Open daily!
