Similkameen wines have a unique identity. This pack includes our absolute top Similkameen selections.
Rugged, individual, pioneering, and wind-battered are words that evoke the remarkable Similkameen Valley. This striking region lies to the west of the southern Okanagan Valley; the Richter Pass connects them, and it’s a truly jaw-dropping drive. A narrow valley with low rainfall, hot summers, cold nights, a whistling daily wind, and mineral-rich soils imprints Similkameen wines a unique identity.
Gorgeously ripened fruit, high-pitched acidity and salty mineral complexity can be found in each of these six superstars. A trio of whites bring you an ultra-dry, limey-stony Riesling, Chasselas with a caress of oak, and streamlined, pristine Chardonnay. Red grapes love the Similkameen’s stony terraces and strong sunshine. You’ll want your biggest glasses for these handsome reds: a peppery and savoury Syrah, a Merlot that melts in the mouth, and a majestic five-grape Bordeaux-styled blend.
