    I read your article on Canada.com today you state the 8th generation winery is in Okanagan Falls,
    It is actually in Summerland BC.

    • Thanks for reading Robert. The 8th Generation winery is indeed located in Summerland. Fruit for the Riesling reviewed here is sourced from vines in Okanagan Falls.

      • Robert says:

        Most of the wineries in the Okanagan source their grapes from many different vineyards throughout the region and I was not aware that those grapes came from OK falls but makes sense as 8th Generation vineyard is not that big. Thanks for your reply, by the way I bet I had some of that Riesling before you did and yes it is a very fine wine. I drive past their winery everyday!

    Hi Michael,

    I would love to sit down with you and do a portfolio tasting. Do you have some time in the next few weeks?
