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.

To Our Wine Club Members 

A big thank you to those who attended our first pickup party!

We were so delighted to host a pickup party on June 17 for our wine club members.  Though there were many who could not make it due to prior commitments (it was Father’s Day!), the day turned out to be very enjoyable.  The sun was shining and everyone seemed to enjoy visiting, touring and drinking some wine!

We will be contacting everyone soon to set a date for next year (not on Father’s Day!) and hope that many more will be able to attend.

Thank you for a wonderful day from the staff at Stag’s Hollow!

Wine Review: Stag’s Hollow Renaissance Reds


As I have mentioned in reviews past, my first thought of Okanagan Falls’ Stag’s Hollow Winery is always as a forward-thinking, try-everything trailblazer, the continual vanguard of varietal suitability and experimentation in British Columbia, constantly checking in on whether the next potential star grape of the province (be it Albarino, Grenache, Dolcetto, or any number of others in its viticultural Rolodex) might be one that few had previously considered.  So it’s a fun change of pace tonight to sit down and see how they handle the classics, those big red varietal stars so often seen across the Old World and New World alike, the first grapes you expect to see on any wine store shelf.  This review set is a particular treat, because all three of the bottles below hail from Stag’s Hollow Renaissance line, the winery’s premium flagship tier of offerings, produced only in vintages when the wines can live up to the bottle’s special black label.  I have heard rumblings that the 2015 Renaissance set breaks new ground in terms of quality and longevity; I had not previously had the opportunity to test this theory for myself, but it would not surprise me out of a winery that always seems to be improving.

Anthony Gismondi: Okanagan Falls headed to be B.C.’s second sub-GI – Vancouver Sun March 30,2018

Stag’s Hollow Winery, Okanagan Falls, British Columbia

“Okanagan Valley will have a second sub-GI before the end of the year, and this time the moniker will have the added advantage of coming with the well-established, easy-to-find village name of Okanagan Falls.”

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.”
