Team Adega has announced that two new wines will be making their debut this spring! Their first-ever Riesling is scheduled for bottling in April so visitors to the winery can look for this special new wine around the beginning of the Spring Wine Festival. Only 300 cases of the Riesling were made for this first 2016 vintage. The second wine is a single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, which will fit right in with the winery’s portfolio of bold red wines like Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Coming from the stunning 2014 vintage, this Cabernet Sauvignon has been resting in bottle for a number of months. Both wines were made entirely from estate grapes grown in the vineyards that surround the winery.
Family owned and operated, the Adega team has grown over this past year. Racyne Mader has now returned to her job as wine shop manager after taking a year off following the birth of her daughter Ellie. Recognizing that wine lovers continue to tour through the winter season, Racyne kept the wine shop open four days per week for the first time in their history. Starting at the beginning of March, the wine shop will return to regular hours from 10am to 5pm 7 days a week.
The patio will again be bustling throughout the summer. Offering picnic tables, a pergola for shade, a selection of food and, of course beautiful wines, Adega’s patio is one of the Okanagan’s warmest and most comfortable. It is also closely surrounded by vineyards and features a wide panoramic view of the lake and the town of Osoyoos making it a positively enveloping and immersive wine country experience.
