MidSummer at the Golden Beaver Winery

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

About a year ago John and I first drove past Golden Beaver Winery and since then we’ve been by for tastings and have even been featured on their website.

After being invited back by the owners, Bruno and Stella, my sister and I left Osoyoos city limits this afternoon to pay them a visit.

I enjoy the Riesling and the Pinot Blanc, however after my first taste of the Viognier its hints of apricot and other summery fruit made it my number one choice to take home with me on this sizzling yet blustery day.

Although I have to admit, the unoaked Merlot is still a personal fave.

I also found out that So.cial in Gastown (on Water Street) carries the Golden Beaver Pinot Blanc (2006).

Once again it was great to chat with Stella, get information about their wines, and learn a bit more about the business of vineyards and tastings. I highly encourage those making a trek through the Okanagan wine country to stop by Golden Beaver. Not only do they know their stuff, you can sit on their patio, support local business, learn a lot about the process, and most importantly – try some of their tasty wine.

    great snaps and you sound all sophisticated talking about oaky apricots 😉 I enjoyed the bottle of beaver you brought over -great to see them outreaching to nice folks like you too!

    It’s been agreed upon that the white wine brought back from Golden Beaver was possibly the best white wine many of us have ever had. Really good stuff.

    Good post. I have to agree this is a great place; the wine is also world class. Another good place in the okanagan is Summer Hill in Kelowna and Mission Hill in Westbank.

    Nice to read these great comments. 2007 reds and 2008 whites will be released this spring. We got some real goodies! Hope to see you again this season. Cheers!
