“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
Here is another wine that has just burst onto the scene with an interesting backstory, also recommended. Based in the Okanagan Valley, Q&A is a premium wine project by Hollywood actor and director Jason Priestley, Winemaker’s CUT proprietor Michal Mosny, and media personality and broadcaster Terry David Mulligan.
With over 50 years of combined industry experience, they started Q&A by questioning everything they know.
OKANAGAN VALLEY BC VQA
45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
The 2020 vintage is elegant yet densely concentrated, with layers of fruit that continually evolve in the glass. Expressive aromas of midsummer Okanagan cherry and wild blackberry are seamlessly balanced by cloves and cedar, with a thoughtful, restrained use of oak that keeps the fruit the focus.
Drinking beautifully now, the polished, fine-grained tannins and exceptional depth will reward careful cellaring over the next 10-15 years.

Ten years ago a couple from Slovakia, both winemakers, decided to move to Canada because of our show Hollywood and Vines. They opened a winery in the Okanagan and our paths were crossed forever. It was destiny.
Two years ago, we decided to put this beautiful story in a bottle. We started by questioning everything – the smallest decision, the most trivial detail – to try to create a wine that has every answer. Now you can hear what it has to say.
It’s a wine that has a lot to say. But it does so elegantly, almost quietly. It doesn’t demand your attention. It earns it.
Now, we can’t wait to share it with you.
