Desert Hills winery is located in Canada’s only desert, the Southern Okanagan Valley near Oliver. It is a family owned estate purchased in 1988. The vineyard grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Gamay, Malbec, Merlot and Pinot Gris on their 24 acres. We visited the winery a while ago (can’t even remember the date) and picked up a few different bottles. This was the first time we had opened one.
We rated the Syrah Select in the middle of the pack on the Wine Notes app we use to log-in all our tastings. While an average bottle, in our opinion, we do have a bottle of Desert Hills Gamay waiting to be opened and look forward to giving it a try. The website currently lists the Gamay as it’s wine of the month!
