Winemaker Notes

Expect an inviting mix of ripe red fruits, such as cherry, raspberry, and cranberry that lift the palate, along with undertones of earth, allspice, and clove. The tannins are evident and will soften beautifully with time. Suave, with effortless elegance, we recommend serving at 15°C to enhance your tasting experience.

Try pairing with duck, Thanksgiving turkey, pork, seared BC salmon and rack of lamb served with a ragout of French lentils.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Quails' Gate Family Reserve Pinot Noir shows excellent depth and focus on the palate and in its finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine is vivid and bright with aromas and flavors of red and blackberries. Enjoy it with roast duck in a white wine reduction sauce. (Tasted: July 7, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Decanter
Pretty and floral, with additional aromas of anise, cranberry and red cherry. Palate is concentrated and bright, woven with oak and fine tannins.

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.”
