Hillside Estate Winery

Hillside Estate Winery Hillside Estate was started in 1984 when Vera and Bohumir Klockockas began replacing the fruit trees in the orchard they had purchased in 1979 on Naramata Road, just north of the city of Penticton, B.C. The couple had decided the site would be ideal for a vineyard because of the gravelly topsoil on a slope which faced west, catching the direct rays of the sun and reflections off nearby Lake Okanagan. Today the winery has new owners and a new building. Eric von Krosigk recently joined the Hillside team in the role of winemaker. Hillside is the only BC winery producing Muscat Ottonel, a truly unique and unusual aromatic white wine .

  Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc is a fruitier relative of Cabernet Sauvignon, less herbaceous and with less tannin. There are aromas of dark cherry and raspberry followed by flavours of chocolate and stewed plums. It is the hidden gem of the Bordeaux varieties.
  Cabernet Merlot
This wine is a perfect blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has been aged for 9 months in both French and American oak barrels, giving it complex layers and well-balanced structure. It is a very fruit forward wine with flavours of blackberry, strawberry and raspberry throughout. Please note: this wine may contain sediment, which is a natural byproduct. If sediment is excessive, decant before consuming.
  Gamay Blush Estate Series
This wine was created by allowing a portion of our Estate grown Gamay grapes to sit on skins for 72 hours only, which resulted in a deep salmon color. It is well balanced with fresh fruit flavors of strawberry, raspberry and red cherry. A blend of these flavors tantalizes the palate and releases into a long finish.
This is the ultimate Naramata Bench Gewürztraminer, with fruit sourced from four independent vineyards within a 3 km radius. This off-dry wine has a fragrance of rose petal and grapefruit with hints of spice on the palate.
  Glace Noir
This wine has an attractive salmon hue and engages the nose with intense pear and golden delicious apple aromas. The palate shows orange zest with balanced acidity and a warming finish.
  Late Harvest Pinot Blanc
Honey and peach aroma's burst onto your nose with rich tropical fruit and citrus flavours. This wine was hand harvested to allow the natural residual sugars time to develop.
  Late Harvest Reserve Muscat Ottonel
This wine begins with tangerine and rose petal aromas that continue through the palate with lingering honeydew melon and papaya finishing with hints of spice.
  Late Harvest Riesling
Intriguing aromas of apricot and passion fruit invite visions of exotic sun-filled holidays spent lounging on the beach. The bouquet leads beautifully into soft pear and tangerine flavours with a lingering finish...delightful and leaving you wanting more!
Red velvet in a bottle! Big, luscious, and full of ripe berries. The fruit for this well-crafted wine was sourced from several independent vineyards throughout the Okanagan Valley, giving it a complex nose and palate.
Mosaic – small pieces coming together to create a work of art. Our signature wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. This wine was crafted using only the best fruit and the finest oak.
  Old Vines Gamay Noir
Planted in 1984, our Gamay Noir vines are some of the oldest in the Okanagan Valley. Aged in French oak barrels, this wine is made in a Beaujolais-style, resulting in a medium bodied, fruit forward wine. Cherries and white pepper are predominant throughout this wine while the palette contains moderate well-balanced tannins.
  Reserve Gamay
Rich, ripe aromas of Bing cherry and toasted oak are followed by flavors of strawberries, cocoa and black pepper.
  Reserve Merlot
Our premium Merlot was aged in both French and American oak, giving it smooth approachable tannins and a well-balanced finish. This wine shows a predominance of dark cherries, vanilla and milk chocolate throughout.
  Reserve Muscat Ottonel
This VQA wine is light and refreshing, with citrus, apricot and pear flavours and hints of spiciness.
  Reserve Pinot Gris
Fruit for this VQA wine was sourced from a small family vineyard in Oliver, B.C. Pears, melons and sweet oak are followed by a complex, rich and creamy mid-palate.
This Rosé is a blend of Merlot and Syrah sourced from the our own Hidden Valley Vineyard high on the Naramata Bench. The juice received skin contact for 72 hours before being drained and fermented at cool temperatures. Aromas of cherry and raspberry show throughout this light, fresh wine.
Rich, fruity and smooth! This wine is crafted entirely from grapes sourced from our Hidden Valley vineyard on the Naramata Bench. The wine is full-bodied and shows classic cool-climate characteristics such as blackberry and rhubarb with a hint of spiciness.
