After checking in at Spirit Ridge in Osoyoos, our home during Banée, we took a drive out to Black Hills Estate Winery for a preview tasting of their yet-to-be-released second-label wines: Cellar Hand Free Run White and Punch Down Red. While I didn't take tasting notes, I can tell you I enjoyed both wines and especially liked the aromatics of the white and the juicy, peppery qualities of the red.
Black Hills cellar master, Amber Jones, shares insight regarding new wine,
Cellar Hand Free Run White.
After tasting the wines and taking a quick tour of the winery, we drove down the road for a guided tour of the new Wine Experience Centre, still under construction and due for completion in early June, 2012. Once completed, patrons will have the opportunity to enjoy a number of settings while immersing themselves in a tasting experience.
Cheers to you!
