The rugged Black Sage Bench is home to some of hottest vineyard sites in Canada, ideal for growing red Bordeaux varieties. For 20 years the Black Sage Vineyard has done just that. In fact, it was the very first on the bench to do so. Now, Black Sage Vineyard is taking the unique step of only producing wines that are suited to our vineyard site. A true expression of their terroir, the wines of Black Sage Vineyard are bold, juicy and intense. The 20 year old vines currently produce Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc varieties and a fortified blend, called Pipe. They are planted in the right location, the right soil, and get the right amount of sunlight; they are wines worthy of distinction. Crafted by the experienced hands of winemaker Jason James, the exceptional wines have a bold label that matches their confident personality.
