If you haven’t crossed paths with Intersection Estate Winery yet, you need to map out a new route. Located on the edge of the ‘Golden Mile’ in Oliver BC, Intersection prides themselves on allowing their vineyard to dictate what varietals of wine they produce, which has resulted in a portfolio consisting of 9 high-quality and authentic and wine varietals.
Established in 2009, Intersection has cemented itself as the winery ‘where good friends and good wines meet’. With one quick Google search and a read of some of their most recent reviews, it’s easy to see that on top of their delicious wines, they provide an excellent experience:
“We had such an amazing educational time there with Moss that we went back again the next day to try the Merlot flight. As noted, the whole thing was very educational, and we particularly enjoyed seeing (tasting!) the difference that soils and years make in the different Merlots. Warning – you’ll find it difficult to leave without buying wine and joining the wine club!”
“Staff are wonderfully friendly and extremely knowledgeable and make a tasting not only a fun-filled event but also a fascinating exploration of their beautifully crafted wines.”
In addition to creating wines that are driven by the unique soil of the region, Intersection is passionate about creating awareness and appreciation of BC wines through education. Vinstitute Wine School is located within Intersection and offers weekly, stand-alone classes. The only public, wine institute in Okanagan, Vinstitute aims to give their students the ability to appreciate wine with confidence. The classes, which are taught by Moss Scheurkogel, who is also the manager of Intersection, are available until the end of October.
