Using only grapes grown on their property, the Mavety family has been growing grapes in the Okanagan for over 40 years – true pioneers! For the first 21 years, they supplied premium grapes to commercial wineries when finally the allure of producing quality wines inspired them to craft their own label - Blue Mountain Vineyard & Cellars - in 1991. The family has not looked back since!
Today, on their 31-hectare estate, they make limited quantities of complex wines from noble varietals including Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay -- the same varietals found in the Champagne, Burgundy and Alsace regions of France.
Cheers & Enjoy!

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: This is a beautifully crafted wine made with Chardonnay grapes that half have been aged in oak while the other half was aged in stainless steel tanks. The result is a medium bodied white wine with a combo of buttered popcorn, warm spices & a zippy long finish. Reminds me of a dense pound cake or a flaky croissant. Easy drinking & round in the mouth. Each sips begs you to come back for more. This wine will go down too easily, so get two bottles & save yourself the disappointment when you reach the bottom of the bottle.
Suggested Food Pairing: A great match for BBQed pork tenderloin or a heavy fish - tuna or swordfish steaks.
