Terroir Talk #4 – Osoyoos West

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.

The west side of Osoyoos Lake, stretching from the Canada US border to the northern tip of the lake, is known for balanced sunshine and high winds – ensuring dryness and thin ground cover. This results in award-winning, sun-ripened red wines from wineries such as Bordertown Estate Winery, Blue Sky Estate Winery, Young & Wyse Collection and Lariana Cellars. Notable varietals include but aren’t limited to merlot.
