This Pinot Noir has a long, lingering finish that leaves you wanting more. It pairs well with a variety of dishes, from grilled meats to creamy pasta sauces. Quails' Gate Pinot Noir is a wine that every red wine lover should try at least once.
The estate version offers raspberry and cherry, baking spices and star anise aromas which morph into a palate that is fresh and juicy with herbs, botanical fine spices and tealeaf aromas. Modern and lively it is a easy and enjoyable red.

Quails’ Gate produces many award-winning wines due to the unique and scintillating terroirs found on the south-facing slope of the Okanagan Valley. With sustainable winemaking techniques followed here, the team ensures that all vines are hand-harvested. The crop yields are always kept low. So, the wines produced are true representations of the integrity and character of the fruits.
The vineyards, where grapes are grown to produce high-quality wines are:
Boucherie Bench – This vineyard comprises of two parts – Upper Boucherie Bench and Lower Boucherie Bench.

Located right below the mountain of Boucherie, the 160 acres of vineyards are spread across rich and historic volcanic soils that produce some of the best quality grapes for premium wines of this place. Drip irrigation is followed in almost 95% of the vineyards here, because sustainability is the key.
