Dear friends of Seven Stones,
We are now releasing our fabulous 2009 Chardonnay which was bottled last summer. The 2009 vintage is a bit softer and creamier than the 2008 vintage yet it retains the same vivid mouth-feel and delicate balance of citrus and tropical fruit flavors permeated with an earthy minerality that has become the signature of our Chardonnays. The barrel fermentation gives this wine a luscious toasty and buttery finish.
Only 400 cases produced $ 24.99

We look forward to seeing you this season!
In late September, the terrace restaurant at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery is filled with suntanned tourists wearing shorts and sunglasses, sipping local wine, eating, enjoying the stunning view.
But this view isn’t over the lush vineyards of Napa Valley. The happy visitors are in Canada, looking south over the Okanagan Lake in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.
The vineyards at Mission Hill Winery look down on Lake Okanagan.
Although Canada’s wine industry was prominent first in Ontario, its British Columbian arm has blossomed in recent years. The most successful wines from this western region come from the Okanagan Valley, a four-hour drive inland over the mountains from Vancouver, or a short flight from Seattle, Vancouver and other nearby Canadian cities to the tiny international airport in Kelowna, “gateway to the Okanagan.” Read More On Wine Spectator….
