Another surprise for wine aficionados is their launch of new small format 200 ml bottles available in Sauvignon Blanc (2023 Gold Medal Winner, WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada), Splash (2023 Gold Medal Winner, WineAlign National Wine Awards), Sparkling Syrah Rosé, and Sparkling Cabernet Franc Rosé. This is their first vintage of Sparkling Syrah Rosé and Sparkling Cabernet Franc Rosé, so they are very excited to showcase these new blends. They are branding this collection as "Mix n' Match Minis: Terroir Treasures in Every Sip." Small format bottles make a great addition to your picnic or lunch on-the-go. There aren’t many wineries in the Valley producing small format bottles, which makes the announcement from River Stone even more exciting.

In addition, River Stone Estate Winery will be releasing the following wines this spring in standard size bottles: Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Splash (a blend of Pinot Gris, Viognier, and Gewürztraminer), Gewürztraminer, Sparkling White Merlot, and the Corner Stone Rosé (new!). Visit their tasting room which opens on March 29th for the 2024 season.

Pinot Gris, a white grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera, originated from the vineyards of Burgundy, France, but has found a prestigious second home throughout the Okanagan Valley. This grape produces wine that varies greatly in taste depending on the terroir and winemaking practices. River Stone produces an off-dry version with flavours and aromas of apple, pear, melon, and stone fruit. The versatility of Pinot Gris makes it a popular choice among wine enthusiasts, suitable for a variety of dining occasions and pairing excellently with everything from fresh seafood to spicy Asian cuisine.


Enjoying Gewürztraminer from River Stone comes with the anticipation of its unique profile. The off-dry style perfectly complements floral and tropical aromas, with each sip revealing the intricate flavours of citrus and lychee. Presently, this wine showcases a perfectly balanced and bright acidity with a pleasing minerality, a signature characteristic often associated with the terroir of Oliver, BC. This combination promises an exquisite tasting experience that lingers pleasantly on the palate.

Sparkling White Merlot presents a delightful twist on traditional sparkling wines, with its exquisite peachy hue making it a standout choice for summertime festivities. Crafted from the versatile red wine merlot grapes, its unique colouration is achieved through precise duration in the press, for a visually appealing appearance. Bursting with delicious red fruit flavours, this sparkling wine strikes an impeccable balance between sweet and dry, for a wide range of palates. Whether it's a casual backyard barbecue or a sophisticated soiree, Sparkling White Merlot will elevate the celebration to new heights.
