BlackDog Cellars is a family estate winery. Our vineyard is comprised of some of the oldest established vines in the valley. Over decades, the site has proven it is well suited to produce the highest quality Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc grapes. Using traditional techniques we hand craft them, in small batches, to create our " Serenity" brand, fine table wines. Our "STAR" is a Pinot Bianco called "CIRIUS BLACK".
Our orchard produces a unique mix of apple varieties and stone fruits. We combine these varieties with carefully selected fruit from other local farms to make our delicious Apple Ice desert wine.
People often ask why we decided to name our business "Black Dog". Many think that it's because we live on the edge of Skaha Lake (Skaha means Dog in the local native language) and because we grow some of the best Pinot Noir (Black) grapes. Others have guessed that it's named "BlackDog" because we own a friendly Rottweiler.
