Crafting stylish wines from pampered vines in the Okanagan Valley is the mission of Kelowna’s Spierhead Winery. In that spirit, they have released their 2014 Pinot Gris, Rosé and Riesling in time for late spring and summer. These will be featured at some of the many events Spierhead will be hosting or participating in this May and beyond.
These include Foodie Friday May 1st for Spring Wine Festival when Spierhead will be pairing its wine with tasty appetizers prepared by Krafty Kitchen at the winery 3-6 pm. These will continue on the first Friday of every month. That evening, they will be pouring at the Westjet Wine Tasting at Kelowna’s Rotary Centre for the Arts. The following day, 1-4 pm, participating with each of the Fab Five wineries, Spierhead will be matching wines with tasty morsels prepared by the chef at Harvest Golf Course.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Spierhead along with the other Fab Five wineries will be offering moms a Fab gift and free wine tasting both Saturday and Sunday.
Spierhead Winery continues to focus on Pinot Noir as its main varietal. In 2014 Spierhead planted an additional five acres of Pinot Noir. They now grow four different Dijon clones of Pinot Noir, enabling a harmonious, complex Pinot Noir to be created from the home vineyard. More will be planted this year and even more in 2016.
New and future wines from Spierhead are bound to continue receiving accolades. In 2014, their wines received a dazzling 20 awards, including a Double Platinum, a Platinum, a Double Gold and a Gold.
