Very honoured to be featured in Forbes as the benchmark producer of Riesling in the Okanagan Valley!
Thanks to writer Lauren Mowery for including Tantalus, and the Valley as a whole, alongside such world-class wineries and regions.

“Okanagan Valley in British Columbia has earned my designation as the world’s great sleeper region for Riesling with its minerally, laser-focused wines suited to lovers of purity and mouthwatering acidity. Despite is northern, Canadian location, the semi-desert region has generously warm days alternating with cool nights, serving to ripen fruit flavors while retaining piercing intensity.
Tantalus Vineyards has become the benchmark Riesling producer for the region. Overlooking the shores of Lake Okanagan, the site was first planted in 1927, making it one of the oldest, continually producing vineyards in the province.”
