Legend has it that Hillside’s founder planted the first Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the valley. That first row still lies just to the south of the Howe vineyard, source of this lovely wine. The depth and flavours of blackberry jam, black cherries, and cocoa powder, along with its power and elegance, continue to amaze us.
Recently awarded the SILVER MEDAL at 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada! Crafted from grapes grown in our Hidden Valley vineyard our 2016 Syrah opens with black raspberry and notes of clove and espresso which interweave with black current and a touch of cardamom on the palate. Elegant fine-grained tannins lead into a powerful juicy finish.
Two of the classic Bordeaux varieties in an exciting pairing for Hillside. Spiced mocha jumps out of the glass on the first sniff—then a hint of orange rind mingles with the fresh dark fruits. On the palate, the fine-grained tannins lead into a generous and juicy finish.
This is a medium-bodied, fruit forward wine. Raspberry and cedar notes highlight the aroma, while the palate delivers a fine, silky texture. Gamay is the principle grape of the Beaujolais region—known for producing early release fun fruity wine. Made here in a more serious style, with barrel aging for 9 months to round out and refine the mid-palate structure.
Cabernet Franc thrives in the terroir of the Naramata Bench. Classic cranberry and raspberry aromas are highlighted here by violet and black tea leaf. Elegantly integrated oak alongside flavours of Montmorency cherry and blackberry introduce graceful supple tannins leading to a lasting generous finish.

En route to Naramata, the stunning Dickinson vineyard is on a sun-drenched bench above the lake. This stylish wine shows dark fruits, fine cocoa and pipe tobacco followed by silky fine-grained tannins. So fun to taste and compare with our other single vineyard Merlots!
Single Vineyard Series
Gjoa’s vineyard, situated just below our winery, was established 17 years ago. These mature vines produce fruit which stands out with deep plum and mocha aromas and a savoury note to the palate, lending sophistication to the finish. So fun to taste and compare with our Dickinson Vineyard Merlot!
This elegant and refined Merlot is filled with aromas of cassis and coffee which are mirrored in the palate, alongside flavours of ripe cherry, damson plum with hints of dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, fashioning a lingering finish.
