Trialto welcomes Coolshanagh to its family of great wineries.
Skip Stothert, Coolshanagh proprietor adds, “As the Coolshanagh label grows, we are excited to join the portfolio at Trialto. Their company’s approach to celebrate wines of people, place and time align with our values and our approach to our Naramata property. We are looking forward to working with the Trialto team. Also,” he continues, “While we are starting this new sales relationship, Coolshanagh will continue its great relationship with Okanagan Crush Pad where the wine is made, and its brilliant winemaking team.”
This soil, slope, drainage and sunlight, combined with organic farming practices result in wines made at Okanagan Crush Pad that beautifully strive to express sense of place. Coolshanagh produces a small batch Chardonnay (~750 cases), sourced only from estate fruit, and (~75 cases of Pinot Noir). Wines that echo Burgundy were the initial inspiration, however the ultimate Coolshanagh wine style that emerges specifically expresses and reflects the terroir of the Okanagan Valley and of the diverse soil of Coolshanagh Vineyard.
