River Stone Estate Winery, located in Oliver, BC is surrounded by our hand tended vineyard. When we moved to the Okanagan Valley we chose this site for its superb grape-growing qualities and planted the vineyard with a Bordeaux style blend in mind, which we have called Corner Stone.
As our winery name, River Stone, and vineyard name, River Rock Vineyards suggest, our wines come from the deep rock and gravel soils laid down following the last glacial recession. We grow five red Bordeaux varietals: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, as well as several white varietals: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.
Long sunlit summer days followed by fall`s warm days and cool nights have consistently produced premium quality fruit.
The vineyards are all on south facing slopes where soils are composed of rock, sand, and gravel laid down during the last glacial recession.
It is the people at River Stone that make this winery a special place. Led by Ted Kane owner and winemaker we have slowly grown to where we are today. From our River Stone Family to yours...Cheers!
Our story is about ‘little steps toward the big picture’. It all started with a passion for winemaking and a love for all things technical.
