Products



  Cabernet/Merlot VQA
This special blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot is rich with notes of cherry, blackberry and pepper. Full flavours of ripe cherries, blackberry and toffee on the palate. It is a very versatile wine, and pairs well with beef, tomato-based dishes, pork, veal, grilled and barbequed foods as well as risottos and cheese.
  Chardonnay VQA
This Chardonnay was cold-fermented at 12 degrees C º in stainless steel tanks. This long and cool fermentation retains the natural fruit flavours reminiscent of peach, pear and pineapple. This wine features an intensely floral bouquet with a crisp, full-bodied velvety finish, all of which are characteristic of Pacific Northwest Chardonnays. When served chilled, it will enhance seafood, pasta, grilled vegetables and poultry dishes.
  Chardonnay/Semillon VQA
Our Chardonnay Semillon was blended to retain the crisp, fragrant aromas of gooseberry, pineapple and passion fruit. Long, clean flavours of pineapple on the palate, together with great mouth feel, will compliment a wide variety of meat and seafood dishes. Pairs well with pasta, fish, salads, Thai food, chicken, smoked salmon, and oysters on the half-shell.
  Late Harvest Pinot Blanc VQA
Big and Bold, Hester Creek's Cabernet Franc has aromas of wild cherry, blackberry, fruitcake, and vanilla with full flavours of malt, plum, strawberry, anise and a fine toasty finish. Firm tannins and lots of complexity provide an excellent pairing with beef, cheese, pasta, barbequed or grilled foods, almonds, bread and olives.
  Late Harvest Trebbiano VQA
This Italian grape is a perfect match for a late harvest wine… it invites images of tropical beaches, sand and sunshine! This wine was vented from the juice of grapes purposely left on the vines to freeze, then carefully hand-picked at our Winemaker’s direction. The grapes were then gently pressed to extract the rich, golden juice before being slowly fermented. Savour the flavours of mango, apricot and peach. Serve chilled with fresh fruit, not-too-sweet dessert dishes, or simply on its own.
  Merlot VQA
A deep rich red wine with aromas of blackberry, mulberry, plum, fruitcake and black cherry. Flavours of blackforest cake, hints of malt, cedar and a spicy red pepper note are followed with a soft smooth toffee finish. Suggested food pairings are steak, roasts, pasta, barbecued or grilled meats and vegetables, ratatouille, lamb, smoked meats, sausages, hard and soft cheeses, olives, and bread.
  Pinot Blanc Icewine VQA
Crisp with fresh fruit aromas of pear, apple, peach and honey, this incredibly well balanced icewine shows the best that Pinot Blanc can be…full fresh flavours with a zesty long finish!! Enjoy this wine on its own, or with fresh fruits, sponge cake, waffles, biscotti, or your favorite cheeses.
  Pinot Blanc VQA
By cold-fermenting this wine in stainless steel tanks, our estate grown and bottled Pinot Blanc has retained the crisp citrus flavours and lively intense bouquet of pear and pineapple. Savour and enjoy our Pinot Blanc on its own, or with poultry and seafood dishes, salads, soft cheeses, nuts and fresh fruit.
  Pinot Gris VQA
Our Pinot Gris has wonderful aromas of pear and pineapple with a slight hint of ginger. The smooth finish is accentuated by flavours of citrus, mineral and tangerine. Try this rich, complex wine with cheese, white sauce pastas, chicken, curries and seafood.
  Reserve Cabernet Franc VQA
Big and Bold, Hester Creek's Cabernet Franc has aromas of wild cherry, blackberry, fruitcake, and vanilla with full flavours of malt, plum, strawberry, anise and a fine toasty finish. Firm tannins and lots of complexity provide an excellent pairing with beef, cheese, pasta, barbequed or grilled foods, almonds, bread and olives.
  Reserve Merlot VQA
Produced on our estate from some of the oldest Merlot vines in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, this wine displays the intense red-berry fruit flavours of cherries, blackberries and mulberries flowing into more complex flavours of mocha, plum, toffee and a hint of cinnamon. With firm tannins and a lingering finish, this wine is a perfect match for any grilled or barbequed meats, pasta, cheese or chocolate.
  Selected Barrels Pinot Noir VQA
Aged in a combination of French and American oak, this wine has delightful flavours of cherries, ripe plums and vanilla. The flavours are rich and full, particularly on the mid-palate, leading into a long, sensual finish. This wine pairs well with pasta, veal, or wild game dishes.
  Selected BarrelsCab/Merlot VQA
This blend of noble Bordeaux varietals was matured in French and American oak for a total of 24 months. This has resulted in a mature, full-bodied red which can be enjoyed immediately. Garnet colours lead into mouth filling aromas of cherry, raspberry and sweet oak. On the palate, soft tannins introduce plum and blackcurrant. The extended time in oak has created a beautiful balance between oak, fruit and spice. This wine will make an excellent accompaniment to lamb, or broiled tenderloin.
  Trebbiano VQA
Our Trebbiano is unique to Hester Creek. Aromas of melon, honeysuckle, white peach and a hint of lavender are followed through with mouth filling tropical flavours such as mandarin orange and passion fruit, resulting in a creamy smooth finish. A delightful pairing with Asian cuisine, Camembert and Brie cheeses, egg dishes, lentils, chicken, and fruit-based desserts.
