Welcome to the Rollingdale Winery Blog :)
New release! Our first Pinot Noir since 2009. Grown in the Halla vineyard in Kaleden, from where we sourced our 2006 Cabernet Franc. Enjoy now or cellar for a few years, but the ripe red fruit showing in this wine is delicious already. This Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine and a very clean version with no barnyard aroma. It has a nice structure from the natural acidity and the European oak but subtle enough that it lets the bright fruit shine through. A refreshing red that drinks well on its own and will be versatile with all but spicy food.
Rollingdale is proud to be partnering with Salt & Brick restaurant in Kelowna for the month of June.
Available everyday - Flight of your choice of 3 Rollingdale wines (2 oz each) for $14
Wed. June 13th, Wed. June 20th, & Wed. June 27th - Brendan Smith from Rollingdale will host Happy Hour Wine Tastings from 5pm - 6pm
Rescheduled to July, Day TBD - Rollingdale Winemaker Dinner with Steve Dale & Brendan Smith from Rollingdale and Chef James Homes
Hard to believe that in just a month or two, we will be harvest our grapes for more wine.
Below are photos of our Foch grapes. We are just in the midst of netting them and putting them to bed.
Looks like we will be harvesting around the end of October this year.

Hello Okanagan sunshine and Easter long weekend!
We are open 10am to 6pm all weekend long and the Easter bunny has a treat for you.
Mention this post when you come into our wine shop and get 15% off one of our new releases, "Paint the Town" red wine.
This unusual blend is dominated by Cabernet Franc, then Merlot, with a touch of Marechal Foch. This is a very easy drinking fruity red wine that smells like raspberries, maraschino cherries, and crab apples. Soft tannins and a clean finish make this a refreshing red that may even be enjoyed chilled - perfect for the upcoming patio season!
See you soon.
