GEHRINGER BROTHERS ESTATE WINERY

One of the Valley’s oldest wineries, Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery, is an embodiment of modesty and authenticity. The facility and wine shop/tasting room has a pleasant view of the valley from its site on the western slopes of the South Okanagan’s Golden Mile. The wine shop offers various knick-knacks and wine accessories including glassware. The shop’s cool temperature was refreshing after spending some time in a stuffy car.


Wine

Gehringer Brothers was founded by brothers Walter and Gordon in 1985 and released its first vintage in the same year. Since then the brothers, who oversee the making of wines and vineyard management, have achieved notability for their Germanics- especially Riesling, and their overall consistency in producing quality wines at good value.

Wines are sourced from estate vineyards, and under the Dry Rock Vineyard label (named for the rocky outcropping near the winery which gathers heat in the day) non-Germanics such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernets and Merlot are produced. We were pleased to taste a blend using Schönburger – a grape not commonly seen anymore.

Notes on Tastings

There is ample parking at the winery and equally sufficient space at the tasting bar. There is no fee for tasting, and there is a wide selection from which visitors may choose to sample.

Last Word

We really enjoyed this stop on our wine route.
