George Hanson of Seven Stones Winery in the Similkameen Valley, passed away in early February. Anyone who ever visited Seven Stones and spent time with George left there feeling somehow rejuvenated.
George was passionate about what he did and it showed in the wines he produced and how he treated guests at his winery. He helped so many people along the way from fellow winemakers to wine writers and everyday folk who just wanted to learn about wine.
The wine caves at Seven Stones earned accolades from around the world. His wine, especially the full bodied reds, were a much sought after item for wine lovers everywhere. You will be deeply missed George. Rest well sir.
