If that title sounds like a band from the sixties it’s because the companionship of wine and music is as ancient as, well, wine and music.
Kalala Organic Estate Winery is launching a sensational solo this year.  A particularly exciting harvest of Sauvignon Blanc grown in the unique climate of Oliver has passed the scrutiny of winemaker Tibor Erdelyi, and it will be allowed to sing solo in this year’s Dostana Sauvignon Blanc.
But let’s not forget the talent singing in the band of harmonious blends.
A common misconception amongst wine drinkers is that quality is best found in wines of a single variety.
Fortunately for wine tasters with palates seeking adventure, Tibor dispels that myth with the many award-winning blends lining the shelves of Kalala Organic Estate Winery. “Blends” states Tibor, “are where the real wine making begins.”
Each grape variety holds unique qualities, and just as it takes more than one voice to create harmony in a choir, in wine it can take more than one grape to make an astounding blend.
Kalala doesn’t just believe in making award-winning wines, as a company with a conscience Kalala has a strong focus on stewardship of the land and on contributing to community. They support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and this year, proceeds from the Chardonnay Icewine were matched and donated to Fort McMurray Fire Relief.
This summer, visit the Kalala tasting room for an authentic wine tasting experience. Check the website at kalala.ca for more information.
