***   This is the notice you’ve all been waiting for!   ***

The BC Wine Appreciation Society is thrilled to invite you to our premier 10th Anniversary tasting – a vertical of Mission Hill’s iconic Oculus!

What is Oculus? Mission Hill’s website explains: Oculus is Mission Hill Family Estate’s signature Bordeaux inspired wine. This elegant and complex wine represents the pinnacle of everything we do from viticulture to winemaking. Only selected clusters from designated blocks within our estates in Osoyoos and Oliver are chosen for this special wine. The grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted; they are then gravity fed to small French oak fermenters. After extended maceration the free run wine and a small portion of lightly basket pressed wine is aged in 100% French oak barrels for 14 months.”

Ingo Grady, the Director of Wine Education for Mission Hill, will be hosting this unique tasting for us at the exclusive Vancouver Club. We will be tasting thirteen years of Mission Hill’s amazing flagship wine, from 2001 right through to a tank sample of the 2013. What a fabulous opportunity to see how this wine has developed over the years!
