We are committed to making handcrafted, limited production wines in the heart of the Similkameen, which we have been doing since 2006. This starts in our organic and bio-dynamic vineyards in Keremeos,which showcase the unique terroir of the Similkameen Valley, where we grow only the famous varietals of Bordeaux, allowing us to create complex and structured New World wines infused with Old World spirit that are full of ageing potential.
The flagship White Label wines of the winery are our Signature red blend, Capella white blend and the Saturn dessert wine. The Signature, is a blend of all five varietals originally found in Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petite Verdot, and Malbec.
This allows us to create a sophisticated and elegant Old World wine that also bursts with the concentrated fruit of the best of the New World. The Capella is blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillion in the tradition of the finest Bordeaux Blanc. It is Clos du Soleil’s ultimate expression of Sauvignon Blanc, elegant yet rich, and made for ageing. Saturn is our homage to the dessert wine of Bordeaux, Sauternes. This wine is pure enjoyment notes of mandarin orange and crême brûlée on the nose, with flavours of vanilla and lime peel, with bright acidity that creates a wine that is hedonistic now, but will develop more complexity as it ages.
Our Black Label wines, Fumé Blanc, Rosé, and Célestiale, are high quality wines that are designed for every day enjoyment. The Fumé Blanc is made for oysters, our Rosé is summer in a bottle, and the Célestiale is a full bodied fruit driven perfect for the BBQ.
We also celebrate our growers who provide us vintage after vintage with world class fruit, with our Grower’s Series of wines, including our award winning Middle Bench Vineyards Pinot Blanc and Guild Vineyards Merlot.
