LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION -THE GOLDEN MILE 

The Golden Mile Bench is situated on the Western slope of the valley just south of Oliver and has a mostly southern exposure which provides a war climate for growing premium grapes with a slight cooling from the lake. There's no shortage of sunshine for these grapes! 

The bench offers airflow and drainage. This is a 13 ac vineyard with 11.2 ac planted. The varieties & plantings are: Chardonnay 1.5 ac, Reisling 1.5 ac, Merlot 3 ac Cabin Franc 5 ac. The Chardonnay & Reisling are relatively new.

 Plantings are on flat land with the mountain holding the heat in & the lake a cooling affect for premium grape growing. No machinery is included. 

There is room for continued vineyard development with the removal of the buildings. Future development of winery or house could be built on back and a view of Osoyoos Lake springs up! The highway frontage of course for future winery lends itself to great exposure. (id:4069)

THE GOLDEN MILE

The Golden Mile is a sub region of the South Okanagan Wine region between Osoyoos and Oliver. Located on an east facing bench backed by low mountains, the terroir, (the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate.)  temperatures and location have resulted in ideal growing conditions for wine producing grapes. The Golden Mile is located off the valley floor in the upper bench, this is very significant due to extra frost free days. This is also ideal from ground cropping and the warmth from the rocks both benefits the crops and extends the growing season.

 

Traditionally grapes need the longer growing season to properly ripen and reach full flavour profile, so the fact that the Golden Mile Bench can be 6 to 8 degrees warmer than the valley floor along the highway 97 is significant. Other factors in the Terroir, include the sandy soil, the mix of gravel to allow for drainage and clay to retain nutrients. Bill Eggert, Winemaker who established Fairview Cellars in 1993 on the Golden Mile’s northern tip, says that wines grown on the Golden Mile are more complex that those grown elsewhere in the Valley.
