Tantalus are the wine industry’s “new pioneers,” producing premium, single vineyard wines from a property overlooking the shores of Lake Okanagan and the township of Kelowna. By focusing on a small, terroir-driven line of wines made from Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay, Tantalus continues to prove that reaching the ultimate potential of wine is, in fact, possible. Tantalus’ status as a “new pioneer” started in 2005, when its inaugural vintage began attracting attention from Riesling producers and connoisseurs. Since then, Tantalus has been recognized for producing high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as sparkling wine. Sustainably grown fruit from South East Kelowna is gently handled in a respectful, non-interventionist manner. Each wine represents the unique characteristics of the ecologically alive vineyard and the best attributes from each season’s climactic conditions.
