Winemaker Notes

Classic cool-climate Pinot Noir with aromas of cherry, wild strawberry, and violets. Medium in body, the palate shows more of those red fruits with a touch of clove, dried herbs, and cocoa. A simple and elegant finish.An ideal match for late-season mushroom or squash risotto, seared game meats, or roasted pork with wild rice and root vegetables. Best enjoyed in Burgundy stemware to enhance aromatics.

Wine Enthusiast

A longtime leader in British Columbia, this Quails’ Gate Pinot is a stylish, nicely focused wine that delivers light but true varietal fruit and balance, with a BC twist. The winery blends in 7% Gamay to pump up the color and the tannins, and the blend works well here.

At Quails’ Gate Winery, we believe great wine starts in great vineyards. Our passion for grapegrowing and our dedication to excellence has combined to make us one of the top wineries in Canada.

We planted our first vines in 1961, but our love affair with the soil goes back to 1908, when Richard Stewart Sr. (affectionately known as “Poppa Dick”) settled in the area. From working the land, he would go on to establish one of the valley’s most successful nurseries. Six decades later, his son, Dick, switched over to growing grapes. With the help of Dick’s eldest son Ben and his wife Ruth, Quails’ Gate Winery was founded in 1989. Over the next two decades, the entire family became involved in making the company one of the leading producers of premium BC VQA wines.

Our vineyard team is dedicated to ensuring that our grapes are given the best chance to succeed and all our grapes are hand-harvested in order to maintain grape integrity. Our dedication to sustainability means we consistently apply best practices and ensure prudent use of resources. Today, we farm more than 200 acres of vineyards and are widely-regarded as industry experts in the development of Canadian viticulture practices.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
