Hester Creek Estate Winery- Oliver B.C.
RI-Wine of Ascot has been looking after the interests of Hester Creek for a number of years and has stocks available in the UK. These beautiful wines are not only enjoyed by connoisseurs but also by people who appreciate quality wines.
Hester Creek Estate Winery, is both one of the British Columbia's newest and oldest Estate Wineries. The 28-year-old Vineyard was purchased in 1996 and was renamed after the Creek that runs along the entire south border of the property. Hester Creek's 71 acre property is located just south of Oliver on a spectacular piece of bench land referred to as the " Golden Mile ". The " Golden Mile " is so named for its rich mineral content and its ability to produce top quality grapes and wines. Hester Creek is recognized as a # 11 classification for grape site suitability as defined in the Grape Growing Atlas of the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys.
The hot days and cool nights characteristic of the South Okanagan Valley produce fruit flavours of an intensity not found in grapes grown in the warmer regions of the World. Hester Creek's vineyards are planted mainly with Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Trebbiano, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Gamay.
Hester Creek Estate Winery is one of B.C ' s most awarded wineries. During the past 3 years the wines have steadily won top awards at some of the most prestigious national and international competitions. The Winery is focused on the development of high quality wines produced within the VQA ( Vintners Quality Alliance) standards.
