The Similkameen Valley is famous for their unique and unmatched terroir. Orofino Vineyards’ secret to success comes from partnering with expert farmers in the area who produce outstanding grapes in their vineyard sites. This, combined with John and Virginia Weber’s keen attention to detail throughout the winemaking process, makes their wines truly like no other.
We had the pleasure of tasting Orofino’s incredible wines and are delighted to share some of our favourites with you! You can find all of these wines and more in the June Wine Club package.
This award-winning white is a beautiful blend of Pinot Gris, Muscat and Riesling that is perfect for summer sipping. Aromas of spice and orange blossom fill the nose and are followed by flavours of apple and kiwi on the palate. Pairs perfectly with roasted chicken with herbs, and pork spring rolls with spicy plum dipping sauce.
Scout Vineyard Riesling, 2016
This white-gold hued wine has notes of apple and citrus fruits on the nose. Flavours of lemon-lime citrus, crab apple and a touch of honey delight the palate. It’s best enjoyed with baked chicken piccata, spinach and feta quiche, and grilled pork kebabs with a molasses dipping sauce.
Home Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2014
This lovely Pinot has aromas of cherries and oak spice. On the palate, notes of black raspberry and cherry come through with ripe tannins. An excellent pairing with duck breast with a pomegranate citrus glaze, beef tenderloin with ancho chiles and fennel seeds, and roasted parsnip and lentil salad.
A deep purple-coloured red with aromas of black fruits, oak spice and a hint of pepper. This rich medium-bodied wine is full of plum flavour with an herbal note on the finish. A beautiful pairing with tomato and beef stew, grilled New York striploin with fire-roasted salsa and asparagus, and creamy coconut lentil curry.
