The Sunrise Road Chardonnay is the bedrock of our Chardonnay program. Two decades ago, this vineyard estate was the location for our Avery award-winning wine. From there, we relentlessly pursued a deeper understanding of Chardonnay in the Okanagan Valley, looking at specific micro-sites and clonal studies. This never-ending exploration continues to motivate our winemaking and viticulture teams. The sub-appellation where our vineyard is located is called “Golden Mile Bench.” Naming this wine Sunrise Road is a reference to those golden colours associated with the sunrise, a nod to the area and its specific terroir, and the beginning of a new day for innovation. Image No.26 is a curved fenced line on the estate. From a vantage point there, one can look east to the sunrise over the high desert hills.
