Why We're Drinking It:

Purple and Magenta in colour, this wine has an ultra-intense cracked black pepper aroma. The pepper is underpinned by lashings of blueberry, black cherry and violets. Also displays notes of sage, nutmeg, Christmas baking spice, milk chocolate and vanilla bean. The wine is soft, silky, dense and rich.

The Story to Know:

The name Church & State symbolizes a balance between the many elements involved in creating the highest quality wine we can produce.

This concept of balance permeates everything we do, a balance between the head and the heart, between change and tradition. We find balance in the climate of this region, in the growing of our grapes, the aging of our wines in French oak barrels in our cellar and in the premium vintages we produce.

In the Okanagan Valley near Oliver we farm 70 acres on estate land, mainly on the renowned Black Sage Bench, and a further 30 acres through our partnerships with growers in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. We also have 11 acres of planted grapes on the Saanich Peninsula. We pay close attention to our grapes, from preparing the land to choosing the right clones and rootstock, to careful hand pruning and harvesting.

Our guiding principle is that you can make great wine only if you have great grapes. Great grapes are produced on the best land, most suitable to the varietal planted and with great attention to detail and timing throughout the planting, growing and harvesting process.
