Giving Back β™₯

.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it's easy to forget that there are many individuals right here in our community who could use some extra help, particularly this time of year.

Hillside is extremely proud to be a continued supporter of One Sky Community Services through both our "One Sky" wine initiative as well as individual donations. Check out Kathy's latest Winemaker's Blog entry, where she chats about her recent trip to the Wine Leader's Forum in Napa, and why the OneSky wine initiative is so very near and dear to her heart.

The Down & "Dirt-"y on our Single Vineyard Merlots

SINGLE VINEYARD MERLOTS

The Down & "Dirt"-Y

Through the summer of 2010, Hillside hosted a number of “terroir tastings” from barrels, illustrating the similarities and differences between four blocks of 2009 Merlot from the Naramata bench and one Oliver block. 

The difference was obvious—almost a Sesame Street segment of “one of these things is not like the other” --the wine from Oliver fruit was “benchmark” dark plum Merlot, while the Naramata-sourced fruit was more complex and in addition to the classic merlot flavours, all shared a flavour component attributable to the soil.
