Blue Mountain welcomes you to experience wines using exclusively estate grown grapes from its South Okanagan vineyard. Focusing on varietal wines made from Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, and Pinot Noir, Blue Mountain strives to produce complex, age-worthy wines, consistent in style while allowing the expression of both the terroir and the individual growing season. At Blue Mountain, it also means the use of 100% estate-grown grapes. Following the estate concept to its fullest extent sets Blue Mountain apart from most North American wineries. Indeed, in the burgeoning industry of the Okanagan Valley, Blue Mountain can make the rare claim of more than 36 years of continuous grape production by one family. The grapes that are harvested for Blue Mountain wines are sourced solely from its own vineyard. A philosophy of sustainable land management ensures limited chemical input. Using classic varietals, which originate in France in growing conditions like our own, we limit our crop yields resulting in higher concentration of the fruit. In the winery, winemaker Matt Mavety combines new technology with traditional techniques. The wines are handled minimally to ensure that the delicacy Read more »

Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars on Snooth

  • Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars Pinot Gris 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The 2014 BM Pinot Gris picks up where the 2013 left off...with a soft, slightly spicy nose of acidic green fruit such as gooseberry and kiwi. The entry is soft and elegant - almost creamy in texture - with gentle vanilla (oak) notes and apple-pear fruitiness. This is a very refined, slightly muted wine... perfect for seafood or white sauce past... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Considering the high regard for this wine and vintage by "professional" tasters, I expected a little more. Colour is an inviting green - very Chablis-like - with a bouquet dominated by vanilla, spice and oak with apple pie in the background. Entry is warm and slightly harsh due to oak-forward and fruit-overwhelmed taste. Finish is medium and ... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Pinot Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The flagship white from BM falls once again into a category of excellence: there is fresh, snappy apple and pear on the nose with a hint of vanilla. The entry is fresh, with vanilla-apple-spice mid-palate with a balance that suggests a hint of acidity and steel in otherwise heavenly spring water. With a medium finish, and thirst-quenching attr...

  • Friday was going to be a good day.  Sandra was only working around 4 hours so we could enjoy the nice weather out here and ride the Harley touring bike to a winery for a little wine tasting.  We found one that sounded good - Bluemont Winery in Bluemont, VA (not far from Leesburg VA if you know the area).  The traffic wasn't yet building up to it...

  • Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars Pinot Gris 2013

    Snoothrank:

    With a soft nose of tangerine and spice, this wine elicits the promise of integrity and purity. It does not disappoint: the entry is soft, clean and reflective of fleshy, soft fruit such as nectarine with a touch of cake spice and citrus - perhaps tangerine or mandarin orange. The flavours are dense with good acidity - indicative of some aging... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Pinot Noir 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very Burgundy in style, the BM PN 2013 is nonetheless lighter in style (especially colour) and more typical of the Okanagan Valley with a strawberry nose with a hint of Rhubarb. On the palate, the flavours are very much reminiscent of "Bourgogne AC" with good balance between sweetness and acidity and gobs of strawberry on the finish which is med... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Reserve Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This edition of the reserve Chardonnay from Blue Mountain is superb: the nose is of apple pie with a hint of cinnamon (just a hint, mind); on the palate, there is a slight creaminess, but with structure (acidity). Excellent balance with some Chablis (or Macon) mineral-like notes on the smooth and lengthy finish. Heavenly spring water. Crosses... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Brut 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This sparkler from the Okanagan Valley, Canada is a very affordable alternative to European exemplars. It has a Champagne-like nose of toasty vanilla coupled with a hint of lime. On entry, there is good acidity and citrus flavour enveloped by more brioche and vanilla. Good, persistent mousse. Elegant and mouth-cleansing, it only lacks a littl... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Wine is a matter of style, and Blue Mountain makes a Sauvignon Blanc with great verve that defies easy generalizing with competitors. On the nose, there is a sharp sour lemon, apple, grass and fresh compote. Entry is brisk and cleansing with considerable citrus and less musk than European and Kiwi offerings. More subtle flavours but more acid t... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Pinot Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The ripening period of the 2013 summer was hot and sunny leading in part to a hefty sugar content in Pinot Blanc. This wine is complex, with a nose of sweet vanilla, and spritely apple; the palate receives pie spice (allspice, e. g.) and a good dose of citrus and malic acids to balance the sweetness. About as good as it gets for this variety. ... Read More
