The team at Poplar Grove Winery believes that great wines are born from the courage to go beyond what’s possible, coupled with a passionate desire to work with their estate fruit to bring the Okanagan’s full potential into each bottle.
This philosophy proves itself with the awards Poplar Grove won in 2014: Gold for Poplar Grove Merlot 2010 at the Wine Align Canadian Wine Awards and Gold for Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc 2011 at the Pacific Rim Wine Competition; Best Pinot Gris for Poplar Grove Pinot Gris 2013 and Best Cabernet-dominant Meritage for Poplar Grove Legacy 2008 at the BC Wine Awards.
Spring releases will welcome Poplar Grove’s 2014 whites including Pinot Gris, Chardonnay (80% produced in stainless steel, 20% in French oak barrels), and the Munson Mountain Pinot Gris made exclusively for Poplar Grove Wine Club members.
The Legacy 2010 will also be released this spring—an excellent vintage and the most limited bottle count of the Legacy to date with only 318 cases produced. The limited nature of this wine will ensure that this is a most sought after wine for both collectors and drinkers.
The next Poplar Grove Wine Club shipment will arrive on members’ doorsteps in March, 2015.  If members miss their chance at the March shipment, they will have time to join the club for the July 2015 shipment. This will include a library vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon for Poplar Grove red wine enthusiasts and the newest vintage of Blanc de Noirs for Poplar Grove pink wine lovers.
Poplar Grove Wine Club members appreciate fine wines and a good party. Planning for the Summer Wine Club July 4th, 2015 celebration is under way. Members will sip award winning wines, sample tasty culinary creations of the Vanilla Pod Restaurant’s Chef Bruno and dance the night away to the setting Naramata sun on the Poplar Grove patio. A great party is one fantastic reason to join Poplar Grove’s Wine Club!
For the Okanagan Spring Wine Festival, Poplar Grove will be hosting live music for the Roll Out the Barrel event on May 9th, 1pm–4pm. Poplar Grove looks forward to joining fellow Naramata Bench wineries to offer barrel samples of future release red wines.
