In the Similkameen Valley, Orofino Vineyards is using sustainable viticulture to produce wines such as their Hendsbee Vineyard Petit Verdot.
Petit Verdot is a late-ripening vine. In the Similkameen Valley, it needs all the help it can get. Lee and Cheryl Hendsbee babied their block of vines, pruning them down to one grape cluster per can, to ensure the quality of their harvest. The result is a delightful, Old-World-style Petit Verdot, redolent with floral and cherry notes. Highly ageable.
