Highlights of Harvest 2013 at Blue Mountain Vineyard


To celebrate Harvest 2013, we created a video of our favourite scenes from the 2013 vintage harvest at Blue Mountain Vineyard & Cellars, Okanagan Falls.

 

Wine Barrel Selection at Blue Mountain


Ian and Matt pay careful attention to the type and quality of barrels used at Blue Mountain. In the video Ian explains some of the technical aspects of coopering, and the reasons behind the choice in French Oak barrels for the Pinot Noir.

 

How to Make Sparkling Wine


Our Brut Sparkling wine is made in the traditional method, or Méthode Traditionnelle as it is in Champagne. The blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris is fermented with yeast in the bottle to create the bubbles.

 

2011 Blue Mountain Gamay Noir


Ian Mavety gives some insight into the Gamay Noir varietal and in particular the 2011 vintage at Blue Mountain Winery. Typically Gamay can be a lighter red wine crafted in the Beaujolais style, but can also be a slightly heavier wine like a Beaujolais Crus, as the 2011 vintage at Blue Mountain is.

 

 

A Little About Chardonnay Wine Making


Chardonnay is a wine that many people either love or hate, perhaps due to the wide range of styles on the market. Our winemaker Matt Mavety explains some of the choices involved in making Chardonnay, his own personal philosophy on the varietal and some technical aspects involved in cultivating a nice Chardonnay wine.

 

How Wine Corks are Chosen


The choice to use cork as a closure for wine is something of a contentious debate. While there are many arguments in favour of a manufactured screw cap closure, or Stelvin Cap as it is known by popular trade name, there also exist many arguments against. What do you think? Do you prefer cork or screw cap?
