Like the best stories, this one starts with love. Australian guy meets B.C. girl and follows her back to Canada. They dive into food and wine, open a bakery in the Okanagan Valley, work punishing hours baking the best bread Kelowna had ever seen. A few years later, with the bakery sold, they head to the Similkameen Valley with two little girls and a dream to plant a vineyard. Alishan Driediger learns winemaking; Rhys Pender gets his Master of Wine designation; the vines are planted; and Little Farm Winery is born. Their goal is modest: to make a minute production of entirely hand-tended, basket-pressed, wild-fermented, authentic wine. Rhys farms the vines to allow them to best express the unique climate and soils of the Similkameen, and Alishan makes the wines with a light, intuitive touch. This Rosé is summer-in-a-glass: raspberry flavours, herbal scrub notes, creamy texture, and a mostly-dry finish with a saline tang that is pure Similkameen. Try with tapenade crostini, herb-marinated grilled fish, or just enjoy a frosty glass under a shade tree.
