This will be the very first chance to sample and purchase the 2016 ‘Siggy’ (aka: the winery’s flagship Siegerrebe wine: floral, rich, flavourful), the 2016 Rosé (enticing, fresh, lively) and the all-new ‘Wild Siggy’ (textured, complex, delicious).

On the 2016 harvest, winemaker and viticulturist Andrew Etsell noted, “the harvest was our earliest on record, but the grapes developed beautiful flavours with balanced acids and sugars. We started with our Siggy (Siegerrebe), which is evolving into one of our most popular wines. We’re so proud of our first-ever Wild Siggy and can’t wait to share it with our guests.”

Their focused portfolio currently includes Siegerrebe (Siggy), and all-new , Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, a Pinot Noir Rosé, a Late Harvest Kerner, a white blend called Homestead, and Harness, a Bordeaux-style red blend. New wines this year will include a Wild Ferment Siegerrebe (Wild Siggy) and a Grüner Veltliner. A traditional-method sparkling wine will be released in 2018. The wines are crafted by second generation family member Andrew Etsell, made in Summerland under the guidance of winemaker Matt Dumayne.
