Stag’s Hollow

Established in 1995, Stag’s Hollow is a family-owned winery in Okanagan Falls, producing some of British Columbia’s highest quality, most distinctive wines. Nestled in the foothills in the South Okanagan, Stag’s Hollow includes two vineyards…the Estate Vineyard and Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard….that are within 2 kms of each other.

Always innovative, and with a spirit to be unique and push the limits of both grape growing and winemaking in the Okanagan, the team at Stag’s Hollow has researched and sought out grapes, both new and old, suited to the area soils and microclimate. Hands-on owners, Larry Gerelus & Linda Pruegger, along with Winemaker, Dwight Sick, believe their passion and involvement in every aspect of the vineyard and winemaking process has created wines that express the terroir of Stag’s Hollow Vineyard and their Grower Partners.

Anthony Gismondi Wine Picks – Vancouver Sun – February 2, 2018

Stag’s Hollow Tempranillo Joven 2016, Okanagan Valley

“The Joven refers to young wines that get very little, if any, wood aging, and in most cases are expected to be drunk young. It’s pretty much what you get here: a young, juicy, fresh, fun red wine with little pretension featuring underripe raspberries and pomegranate that draw saliva with every sip. The Tempranillo is grown in Naramata at Ramuda Vineyard on a silty clay site, and at Stag’s Hollow Vineyard over gravels and coarse glacial till. Try it with some grilled chicken.”

Kurtis Kolt – The Georgia Straight – January 17, 2018

“I combed through the offerings at, which is where you need to go for more information and reservations, and I’ve assembled a list of restaurants to hit up for my top 10 pairings. Do book your spots soon, as seats always go quickly!


(217 Carrall Street, $40)

I don’t often get excited by broccoli, but I’m totally jazzed by chef Lee Cooper’s tasty-sounding dish, accompanied by Serrano ham, lemon, and Parmesan. I’m also loving the unique pairing of Stag’s Hollow Grenache 2016, one of B.C.’s only bottlings of the Rhone variety, awash with purple fruit and cardamom.”


Salut – Anthony Gismondi – June 28, 2017

Stag’s Hollow Albariño Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard 2016 one of 25 top BC wines for summer

“You don’t want to think too much about summer wines. If they are fresh and clean and served at the right temperature let the moment take over; if you find some electricity in the glass let the wine take over.”

“Pear, melon, white peach, with touch of licorice are the calling cards of this amazing Albariño grown in Okanagan Falls. Crisp, clean and bright and perfect spot prawns, fresh halibut and/or scallops.”
