We’ve all seen Sideways. Maybe you’ve read “The Heartbreak Grape” by Marq De Villiers. Maybe it’s the only red wine that you drink and you get all tingley when you remember drinking a special bottle of a Grand Cru. Winemakers love the challenge of trying to make a truly great and memorable bottle. There’s no denying that something is special about Pinot Noir.
So we’ll take a look at this fussy grape this week and try out a version from Eau Vivre who are located in the Similkameen Valley. Since we recorded this podcast, I have learned that the 2007 that we tasted in this episode is now sold out at the winery and the 2008 is now available. I’m also happy to report that the 2008 is just as good and though it is a little hidden at the moment, it should open up nicely.
So sit back, grab a glass of your favorite pinot noir and enjoy!

I have not yet received a correct answer from last week’s quiz question. It was a tricky one, but it you think you know what the answer is (I need the name of both wineries), please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. First email through with the correct answer will get a copy of the Wineries of the Okanagan map by Environ Geomatics.
