Winemaking Notes

Our 30 acre estate vineyard lies within British Columbia’s Somenos Land District on the sun-drenched mid-slope of Mount Prevost. Here, the moderate climate and warm, well drained soils provide exceptional conditions for viticulture. Our Somenos Series of premium wines celebrates the distinctive terroir and signature style that is Averill Creek Vineyard; each carefully hand crafted in small batches from our best vines, our finest barrels, and our most expressive blend.

2015 - 91pts, Anthony Gismondi, "Averill Creek is hitting it out of the park with this Pinot"

2014 - 95pts, Natalie Maclean, "A spectacular BC Pinot Noir with layers of pleasure, passion and complexity. Reminds me of the best Burgundian Pinots through the mid-palate -- a field of wild violets and truffles. Full-bodied and velvet smooth. Oh my."
