A  decade into producing wines, Howling Bluff is like a champion marathon runner. Long, confident strides take it straight to the finish line, where customers eagerly await new releases each year.

“We have been experimenting for 10 years now and outside of variations that Mother Nature will dictate, we have now established the distinctive style for Howling Bluff wines,” says owner Luke Smith.

Especially exciting for Luke this spring is the release of his Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon wines. The 2013 vintage will include the Sauv Semi blend that has become his perennial bestseller, as well as single varietals. This will be only the fourth release in 10 years of Sauvignon Blanc and the first ever for Semillon.

“Point blank, I am really pumped for folks to try these new white wines,” he says. “I think Howling Bluff has found our stride and style, and I am enthusiastic for people to try them.”

These spring releases will first be available at the May 2nd Naramata Bench Wineries Association Spring Release event in Vancouver.
And, while supplies last our 2011 Reserve Pinot Noir and 2010 Suma Quies Sin Cera, will be available in the wineshop starting with the Okanagan Spring Wine Festival.
