When you drive through the heart of Naramata, one of the Okanagan’s elite wine subregions, you cannot miss Hillside. The striking white pine winery, bistro and tasting room seem to emerge from the hill overlooking the lake, framed by mature vineyards, rolling lawns, and vivid flowerbeds. The first vines were planted in 1984 and the estate is now 35 acres strong. Kathy Malone makes the wines, and she is a gentle, sometimes feisty force of nature. Vermont was home over three decades ago, before she landed in B.C. and went to work at Mission Hill. For 23 years she made wine there, working beside the legend John Simes before shifting her focus to Naramata’s highly distinctive terroir. Merlot is B.C.’s most planted red grape largely because it ripens nicely in our short and warm growing season. Kathy’s interpretation unleashes Merlot’s juicy red fruit, milk chocolate and spicy nature, offset by truly fresh acidity and nicely grippy tannins. Rich with dark cherries, damson plums, and a dusting of sagebrush, it goes down effortlessly with beer can chicken, a blue cheese burger, or beefy fajitas.
