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.

“I think it fair to say… that all judges were startled if not stunned by the assertiveness and clarity of the three grenaches from Okanagan Valley. What’s more, all three were from the same producer, Stag’s Hollow Winery of Okanagan Falls.” (read more under Accolades & Reviews below)
Globe and Mail Review Oct 4, 2016 – Beppi Crosariol
Stag’s Hollow Grenache 2015, SCORE: 92
Grown mainly in Spain, France and Australia, heat-loving grenache is a rarity in Canada. Kudos to Stag’s Hollow for this compelling effort. It comes across like a rich, ripe version from France’s southern Rhône Valley, which is high praise. Full-bodied, at 15-per-cent alcohol (the grape leans toward high strength), it’s got supple, come-hither fruit suggesting cherry jam, which is enlivened by a truckload of black licorice as well as Provençal herbs. And there’s an aromatic black-pepper note here, possibly owing to syrah, which makes up 12 per cent of the blend. Available at private retail stores in British Columbia and direct.
