Invite: Harvest Celebration Dinner at The Winery

 

 

Please join the Mavety family for a very special dinner hosted at the estate to celebrate the upcoming harvest.  This event is exclusively for our loyal friends of Blue Mountain and their guests.

The evening will commence with a sparkling wine reception featuring our pre-release vintage sparkling wines paired with canapés.  We have invited Chef Chris Van Hooydonk of Backyard Farms back to our estate to cater our seated dinner overlooking our vineyards.

We will adjust menus to suit any severe allergies or dietary restrictions, but we politely decline personal preferences.

Conversation and laughter will frame the evening, as we toast another vintage on the estate. 

There will be a limited number of tickets available so please respond promptly to avoid disappointment.

 

 

Saturday, August 20th, 2022


5:30pm sparkling wine reception followed by a seated dinner outside, weather permitting.

Tickets are $195 plus tax. 

These tickets are non-refundable and available by contacting the winery by responding to this email.

 

Shuttle
A complimentary shuttle to and from the winery from Penticton will be offered.  Details on pick-up times will be confirmed early August.

 

We look forward to welcoming you at the winery.

 

Cheers,

The Mavety Family

Winery News | Blue Mountain Spring Update

 

Spring has arrived in the valley and our vineyards are ready for a new and prosperous growing season. 

 

We have some unfortunate news to share with all of you about the outcome of the 2021 harvest.  As many of you were aware there were many wildfires burning throughout BC last summer.  The estate was near the Thomas Creek wildfire in Okanagan Falls.

 

The winery’s estate vineyards were impacted by smoke contamination.  While attempts to mitigate the impact of the contamination were tried the results did not meet the winery’s quality standards.

 

We made the very difficult decision not to bottle the 2021 vintage simply because we were not willing to compromise the reputation, that we have worked tirelessly to establish over the past three decades.

 

While this unparalleled interruption of production is disappointing for everyone – including family, staff, wine club members, and wine lovers in BC and around the world – we are confident that we will resume making premium wines with the 2022 vintage.  The vines themselves were not affected.

 

We have some inventory from previous Blue Mountain vintages to last for some months.  However, any decisions regarding the winery being open to the public for purchases will be made late Spring of 2022.

 

In the meantime, Blue Mountain thanks everyone for their support.

 

Sincerely,

Christie, Matt, Jane and Ian Mavety

BOOK YOUR RESERVATION

 

As of July 1st, we will offer ‘curbside’ pick up at the winery’s parking lot for those living or visiting our province.  For those residing outside, or not visiting, our province, please use the code 2021THANKYOU to receive complimentary shipping on orders of 12 or more bottles purchased at www.bluemountainwinery.com.

Blue Mountain Season Update: June 2021

 

Dear Valued Blue Mountain Supporter,

 

I am sure we are all feeling a collective sigh of relief with the announcement of the 4-step reopening plan here in BC.  It has been a long 15 months of following guidelines!

 

After much thought, we have made the difficult decision to keep our tasting room closed for the season.  We are currently operating the winery’s day-to-day administrative duties as just a two-person team, and we simply wouldn’t be able to give in-person visitors the time and attention they deserve.

 

We will, however, continue to offer ‘curbside’ pick up, at our gate, for those living or visiting our health region (when permitted by public health orders).  We look forward to chatting with you when you come to pick up your order.  We miss seeing you!  For those residing outside, or not visiting, our health region, please use the code 2021THANKYOU to receive complimentary shipping on orders of 12 or more bottles purchased at www.bluemountainwinery.com

  

Your support means a lot to us, and we look forward to celebrating with you in person in 2022!

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us at (250) 497-8244 or bluemountainwinery@bluemountainwinery.com

 

2021 marks Blue Mountain’s 30th anniversary, and we are celebrating throughout the year!  We hope you will share some of your recent and past images of times when you have enjoyed Blue Mountain wines using the hashtag #bluemountain30.  Everyone who posts will automatically be entered in a random monthly draw for a gift card to a local restaurant. 

 

 

 

All the best, 

The Mavety Family

The Pinot Noir program

 

Our Pinot Noir program consists of two cuvée - the Estate and Reserve - as well as three single-vineyard releases. All the wines, described below, are crafted to reflect their unique origins within the Blue Mountain Estate.

 

 

 

THE PINOT NOIR PROGRAM

 

2019 ESTATE CUVÉE PINOT NOIR

$35 / bottle   |   $420 / Case of 12 

A vivid representation of Blue Mountain’s fruit vibrance, the Estate Cuvée Pinot Noir is confident in its youth and vigour. Its vines rise highest in altitude on our Estate, setting the precedent for a terroir-based personality to shine through this purposeful Pinot Noir.

   
   

 

2019 RESERVE CUVÉE PINOT NOIR

$45 / bottle   |   $270 / Case of 6

A harmonious blend of Blue Mountain’s three key Pinot Noir vineyards, the Reserve Cuvée champions both exceptional fruit quality, and masterful blending. Selecting fruit from over 26-year-old vines, the personalities of Blue Mountain converge in the glass to deliver an altogether unique, cellar-worthy Pinot Noir that can only be described as "Blue Mountain".

         
   
   

SINGLE VINEYARD  |  BLOCK 23
2019 RIVER FLOW PINOT NOIR

$55 / bottle   |   $330 / Case of 6

Planted in 1994, Block 23 rises majestically from the earth upon high ground from sandy loam soil. The vineyard’s almost Northern exposure, combined with gentle, East-facing slopes expose the vines to cool morning sun, allowing the vines to develop gently and undisturbed, between sun and soil crafting Blue Mountain’s River Flow. This is Pinot as nature intended - a refined, elegant, and composed Pinot Noir.

   
   
   

 

SINGLE VINEYARD  |  BLOCK 09
2019 WILD TERRAIN PINOT NOIR

$55 / bottle   |   $330 / Case of 6

Wild Terrain Pinot Noir, also known as the untamed sibling, represents the most extreme and varied topography of the Pinot Noir blocks from steep slopes exposed to the wind, to sun-drenched, flatter plains over loamy sand. Significant South-Western exposure reveals a wild complexity, at once handsome and delicately pretty, savoury, and boldly free.

 

   

 

 

SINGLE VINEYARD   |  BLOCK 14
2019 GRAVEL FORCE PINOT NOIR

$55 / bottle   |   $330 / Case of 6

A more Westerly and Southern exposure creates a warm site for the 30-year-old vines, the basis for Gravel Force– an overt, brooding, and textural wine with a more masculine structure, and strength.  Combining a base of rocky gravel, loamy sand, and more clay than other Blue Mountain Pinot Noir vineyards, Block 14 encourages strong natural growth and vigour.

 


 

YouTube - PINOT NOIR PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

 

SINGLE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

The idea of single block wines at Blue Mountain is not new. We have been tasting the wines in this manner for many years as we blended them into our estate and reserve cuvées, but in recent years our winemaking process, the business, and the vines themselves have all matured to a point where sharing these single vineyard wines with you is possible.

By focusing on what makes each single vineyard block unique, these wines offer a different taste of what you have come to know as Blue Mountain. Each wine is a unique expression of its own site within our estate, yet distinctly a Blue Mountain Pinot Noir. 

 

2021 marks Blue Mountain’s 30th anniversary, and we are celebrating throughout the year!  We hope you will share some of your recent and past images of times when you have enjoyed Blue Mountain wines using the hashtag #bluemountain30.  Everyone who posts will automatically be entered in a random monthly draw for a gift card to a local restaurant.  All winners will be contacted personally by a team member at Blue Mountain.
