Terroir Talk #3 – Oliver Gravel Bar

Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country’s terroir is very varied. Microclimates and soil composition differ drastically within very short distances, which is something that makes our region so unique. Follow this series as we breakdown the nuances of our diverse terroir.

Within the Black Sage Bench lies a zone of crushed gravel known as the Gravel Bar. The calcium-rich soil intermingled with the southern heat makes the zone distinct. Wineries in this area include Bartier Bros, StoneboatSilver Sage, Here’s The Thing, and Church & State.
