My Wine Canada Wine Club Feature: Roche Wines
We are thrilled to announce this month's featured winery: Roche Wines. This Okanagan, B.C., winery is known for its sustainable farming practices and traditional French winemaking roots upon which they draw to craft their exceptional portfolio. Their small-lot wines have become synonymous with high-quality and careful, patient winemaking.
Sign up for the wine club today to get a wonderful collection of Okanagan wine delivered right to your home.
Founded in 2011, Roche Wines, led by Pénélope and Dylan Roche, has grown into a highly respected label that is rooted in French traditions. Pénélope's family has owned Chateau Les Carmes Haut-Brion, a French vineyard and winery in Bordeaux, for six generations, so she came by her love for winemaking naturally. She began her journey making wines in Spain, New Zealand, and Australia, while Dylan found his love for wine in Burgundy, France, which led him to study viticulture and winemaking in Beaune, Chablis, and New Zealand.
Together, Pénélope and Dylan have created a portfolio of exceptional small-lot wines that honour French traditions while also capturing the unique flavours found in the Okanagan terroir. Staying true to their French roots, Roche Wines' collection includes fantastic Bordeaux-style reds, as well as aromatic whites that we're sure you'll love!
Here is a peek at a few of the superb wines that are included in our November Wine Club boxes.
