Le Vieux Pin releases two new wines - February 19th 2013

Two wines are being released today, each coming from challenging vintages in the Okanagan Valley. These years were marked with cooler than typical weather (especially when compared to the scorching heat of 2009). Both 2010 and 2011 required more care and attention both in the vineyard and the winery than 2009 did. These are the type of vintages that separate the best producers from the rest. However, with extremely low yields and plenty of tender loving care in the vineyards both vintages produced very elegant and balanced wines. It has been incredibly rewarding to watch the wines develop in barrel and bottle over the past couple years.
