Wine Access Magazine is counting down the Top 25 Wineries in Canada. This morning they reached number 6, the Okanagan’s Road 13 Vineyards.

Road 13 Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery located between Osoyoos and Oliver, at Highway 97 and Road 13 on the Okanagan Valley’s historic “Golden Mile.” The winery has a short but colourful past and continually receives ongoing critical acclaim for making wines that many feel are a quintessential expression of Okanagan Valley terroir.

The winery has moved primarily to blended wines and away from single varietals. Many varietals have vanished from Road 13’s portfolio because the grapes now go into Rockpile, a 4,500-case red blend, and Stemwinder, a 1,800-case white blend.

Still, the winery’s single varietals are noticed with the 2008 Jackpot Pinot Noir and 2008 Home Vineyard Sparkling Chenin Blanc both receiving 90 points from Wine Access.
