There are places in our vineyards that show us something unique —where vine maturity, soil and climate combine to create something distinctly CedarCreek. We have 11 acres of Merlot planted at our Desert Ridge Vineyard in Osoyoos but rows 50-90 are always extra special. Maybe it’s the stony soil. Maybe it’s the unique aspect of the land. Or maybe it’s the exceptional drainage that makes the vines work a little harder. More likely a combination of all three, but each year Mother Nature, with more than a little help from us, gives us extraordinary Merlot from those rows. You can taste the unique charter of Desert Ridge in every glass. On that, you have our word.

A Not-So-Little, Little Thing

Desert Ridge is our equipment-breaking vineyard. But those big stones in the vineyard that are so hard on our gear, add wonderful complexity to our fruit.
