~~~

Nota Bene 2014Black Hills Estate Winery‘s 2014 Nota Bene wine will be available to the trade and public across BC on September 1st. This limited-release Bordeaux-style wine will be celebrated in Vancouver with a succession of events from August 28-31, including winemaker dinners, seminars, and portfolio tastings open to the public.

Even rarer than the 2014 Nota Bene is that winemaker Graham Pierce will be in the city to personally attend select events and be on hand to answer questions. Nota Bene has become a must-have wine among collectors and wine lovers.

The Vancouver events are to celebrate Black Hills Estate Winery’s sought-after flagship wine and the new winemaking processes that came after years of careful consideration and meticulous trials for the Black Hills Estate Winery winemaking team.

About Black Hills Estate Winery:

Founded in 1999, Black Hills Estate Winery produces wine exclusively from its estate vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, north of Osoyoos, British Columbia. The vineyard microclimate is one of the hottest, driest, and sunniest sites in the South Okanagan, allowing the vines to yield flavourful grapes of balanced intensity. Using environmentally-friendly viticultural techniques and thoughtful winemaking practices, the winery is well-known for its two signature blends: Nota Bene, an age-worthy Bordeaux-style red, produced in limited-quantities from select barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and Alibi (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon). Black Hills also produces varietally-labelled Viognier, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Carménère. A second label, Cellar Hand, was introduced in 2012, allowing the winemaking team freedom to experiment with select barrels from the estate.

Surrounded by panoramic vineyard views, the Black Hills team welcomes wine lovers to visit their Wine Experience Center in Oliver. The new facility can provide a unique, sit-down wine tasting experience guided by highly trained wine professionals. Annual summer events held at the facility are bold, exciting and fun. Members of the Black Hills Wine Club enjoy access to limited-release wines not available to the public.

Drink Good Wine. That is my motto and I really want to help you drink good wine. What is good wine? That can be a different thing for each people. Some people prefer red wines. Some only like Cabernet Sauvignon. MyWinePal was started by Karl Kliparchuk, WSET. I spent many years with the South World Wine Society as the President and then cellar master.
