The Poplar Grove Winery tasting room is gearing up for the Summer season. Throughout the year, Poplar Grove is open seven days a week from 10am to 6pm; starting in July it will be open 10am to 9pm.
The newest addition to the tasting room wine line up is the Poplar Grove Pinot Gris 2014. Released March 1, the Pinot Gris tastes like Okanagan sunshine in a glass. Chef Bruno Terroso of Vanilla Pod Restaurant has created menu items that go well with Pinot Gris, including Steelhead Trout with warm potato and spinach salad, prosciutto and white balsamic vinaigrette.
Other new Poplar Grove releases include Chardonnay 2014, Merlot 2011 and Blanc de Noir 2014, now available at the winery.
For the Okanagan Spring Wine Festival, Poplar Grove will host live music for Roll Out the Barrel May 9, 1pm to 4pm. Poplar Grove joins fellow Naramata Bench wineries to offer barrel samples of upcoming red wine releases. Join Stefan Arnason, winemaker, for a taste of the future!
The Vanilla Pod Restaurant will feature a five-course wine dinner, paired with award-winning Poplar Grove wines for $99 during the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival. This menu is available nightly from 5pm, Friday May 1–Sunday May 12. Reservations are requested.
Poplar Grove is in the process of starting a sparkling wine program with fruit that owner Tony Holler grows at his own home. Stay tuned for details.
