“Reisling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012

I have just found my new favorite white wine. Lots of apple notes but wonderfully balanced. We had the wine at lunch today at the Yellow House and we are looking forward to a visit to the winery this weekend. If the rest of their wines are as good, the wine cellar will see a few more bottles added.

Thanks very much for your comments on our Riesling! Balance is very important and it's something we, like all quality wine producers, try to achieve.

“Wonderful whites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

Weve been to this winery at an earlier time and like the upgrade. The wine label and consistency of the Reisling are world class. A wonderful wine to share but one must enjoy it too. The shop has a great view (few gifts) and is a lovely quick visit.

Thank you for your comments! We're pleased you approve of our new LEED certified winery and your comment about our Riesling is very kind. With regard to the gift items, we try to keep the focus on our wines but visitors can also purchase high quality take away items like jars of our vineyard honey, logo'd corkscrews etc.

“Best wines we tasted in Okanagan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

The tasting room at Tantalus is designed as a gallery with the lake view as the picture window and would be ideal for a small wedding party.

The host (canadian wife of owner) was very knowedgeable of her wines and took us through the range slowly and in detail. It was apparent from the taste of the wines and her information that her husband had experience in New Zealand, SE Australia and France before settling in Kelowna to make these fabulous wines.

We ordered Tantalus rose at the Waterfront Restaurant that evening and were not disappointed
