At Church & State, we use grapes we grow on 121 acres of the finest grape-producing regions in British Columbia. We produce 14,000 cases of ultra premium and premium VQA white and red wines in the following varieties and vintages: Gewürztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Chardonnay, Cabernet Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and our full five varietal Bordeaux blend, "Quintessential". Bill Dyer, our Master Winemaker and a driving force in Napa Valley wineries for 27 years, guides our wine-making operations. We age our wines in fine French oak barrels and use modern cellar tools and methods to produce high quality white and red wines. With our main production facility moving to Oliver, the Victoria location will become our secondary wine-making area. The Okanagan winery is located in the heart of the Oliver region, with our soon to be built tasting bar amongst the vineyards on Coyote Bowl. Our Victoria winery is located on the scenic Saanich Peninsula just a short drive Read more »

  • Hi guys:I was at a local wine and liquor store today; I buy quite a bit of stuff from them but don't really know any of the staff. It was quite warm and I was out running errands. I decided to stop by and pick up a few bottles of inexpensive wine (sub $15) that I can use in part for cooking.I guess maybe my hand was a little sweaty or something ... Read More

  • I'm making a lasagne bolognese for a dinner party (the whole deal from scratch, including pasta) and I want to get an interesting Italian red to pair with it. I'd love to get a Barolo but the cost is a bit prohibitive...I'm like to keep it at about 15 a bottle or less.Also maybe a light Italian white to have with appetizers. Unfortunately I live...

  • Just got this from Garagiste, and have all sorts of weird thoughts.  Like, is this for real?  But more importantly, will Rimmerman succeed in keeping this from going to auction, or is he just rewarding a lucky few who will turn around and sell the most valuable bottles, while others will have overpaid for who-knows-what?  Would it really be wors...

  • O Neh da Vineyard On-No-Lee NV

    Snoothrank:

    Hmmm. I have only had this wine in its only licit "serving" venue--the Roman Catholic Mass, as the Blood of Christ. I was very surprised at how excellent it was, communion wines usually aren't the greatest, but this particular wine (whose identity I verified with the priest) was wonderful, truly worthy of the Blessed Sacrament. Only my religi... Read More

    Wine review by Odile53


  • I loved the trivia and the details. There is old wine, as in old bottles, old wine that has been sleeping in the barrel and there are old vines. The first two seem easier to understand, but when is a vine to be considered old, is there any notion in regards to years or is it more like the kind of fruit it produces?, or something else?.

  • So I'm just wondering......what's everyone's take on the old screw caps vs cork debate....?  How would you best describe the role of each, and overcome perceptual barriers....? Read More

  • Church & State Wines Chardonnay Okanagan Valley Vqa 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Decent oaked Chardonnay. Hints of pineapple, buttery-popcorn, honey and vanilla, with hints of nutty notes. Low acidity and fairly dry. Hint of heat/ethanol. Medium to full bodied, with a creamy, satin texture. Lovely buttery and pineapple aftertaste, and oaky flavours. Medium to long finish. Read More

  • Would definitely be interested in hearing what people think are the best wineries, and wines, in the Okanagan. Hopefully with an explanation why. Have a good friend going for an extended stay, based in Kelowna, in a month or so, and it'd be nice to be able to offer some pointers. She and her husband drink a lot of New Zealand sauvignon blanc,... Read More

  • I have always wondered who is in charge of selecting the wines for official ceremonies and receptions in the Vatican and how they set the criteria for wine selection. Does the Pope pair the wines by himself?One would assume that the final selection would consists of several fine Italian wines likeFrascati, an ancient white wine born in the Roman... Read More

  • We are thrilled to have a first hand report on the 2008 German vintage from our friend Justin Christoph. Justin's report on the Wet auctions, where the greatest German wines go for princely sums, gives us a great view into the inner working of the German auction market, as well as a sneak peak at the style and quality of the vintage, and so much...
