We are honoured to welcome you with another one of our most sought-after events, a BCWAS vertical tasting! Our featured winery for this event is Clos du Soleil Winery, a small artisan winery and vineyard located on the Keremeos Upper Bench. Their unique characteristic is described as "Old World Elegance, New World Edge." The winery has been producing exceptional wines since 2006.
We'll be tasting the flagship red blend from Clos du Soleil - "Signature" - a blend of Bordeaux varieties, produced by hand, and aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. This tasting of Signature from 2009 to 2015 will showcase its balance and structure, as it has been know for its ability to age for many years.
As a feature to this fabulous evening, we are pleased to host Michael Clark, Managing Director & Winemaker at Clos du Soleil. Michael's philosophy is to treat the grapes gently and with respect in order to produce complex, age-worthy wines that showcase the very best expression of the Similkameen Valley terroir. Michael was originally trained in Theoretical Physics. He also spent 14 years as a successful investment manager in Canada, the USA, and Europe. It was during his years living in Europe that Michael decided to turn his life-long obsession with wine into his day job.
In addition to our 2009-2015 vertical, Michael will be bringing the 2020 "Capella" Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon blend and a new 2020 Chardonnay for us to enjoy. He has also promised to bring an exciting, not yet released, bonus wine: we'll leave this for you to be pleasantly surprised at this iconic event.
