Volcanic Hills Estate Winery

Our second winery stop was at Volcanic Hills Estate Winery. It’s just down the street from Beaumont Family Estate Winery.

Hours.

Wine tastings are complimentary but they limit you to four pours per person. Bottles are in the $15.90 to 43.39 range.

Bliss Tea Kombucha looked interesting.

This tipsy tiger bottle holder was pretty cute. And overpriced.

Some fresh fruit. Love the Okanagon.

We were a large group so we split our group in half. We were four so should have had 16 total tastings to try. Instead, the pourer only let us try 13 out of 14 on the list. Super lame that we didn’t get to try the 2014 Eruption. Interestingly, the other half of our group got to try 6 samples each. So I have no idea what was the issue with that guy.

Whites: 2016 bubbly gewurztraminer, 2017 rose, 2016 magma white, 2016 viognier, 2013 reserve chardonnay and 2016 lava white blend – this was the only white I liked. A blend of 6 different whites.

Reds: 2015 pinot noir, 2013 merlot, 2014 syrah and 2015 magma red – the only red that was decent. Another blend of 5 reds.

Icewines: 2016 gewurztraminer late harvest (this was super sweet. Way too much for our taste buds), 2015 pinot noir icewine (not sure how but it was even more sweet than the gewurztraminer) and 2014 riesling icewine (only icewine that was balanced).
