Evolve Cellars is located in Penticton, BC and is under the ownership umbrella of Five Vines Cellars; along with TIME Winery and the McWatters’ Collection.
With Evolve Cellars, my intention was to find friendly and approachable wines, providing a pure expression of the terroir of the south Okanagan.
From Osoyoos to the Similkameen Valley, to Penticton and Oliver, Evolve Cellars source grapes from local growers that can produce fruit-forward, crisp, approachable, well-balanced and affordable wines. The crisp flavour profile mimics the refreshing coolness of the Okanagan Lake, the same inspiration behind the turquoise paint strokes found on the labels.
The single-vineyard Ehrenfelser is an aromatic white wine, a rare and delicious find! The two red wines in this pack over-deliver big time, and are big and juicy. The Viognier is another rare special wine – only 100 cases produced! Overall, I fell in love with all the wines that rising-star winemaker Lynzee Schatz and her team are producing.
