Fortified Wines

2008 D’oro
In 2001, a reverent union occurred between Vista D’oro’s three majestic 100 year old English walnut trees and a traditional Northern France recipe that dates back to 1796. True to the wines historical dedication every Bastille Day, Vista D’oro gathers close friends and family for a day to celebrate the harvest of another batch of green walnuts.

The D’oro is an artisanally crafted, fortified port-style wine made with BC’s finest small lot vinifera. It is a blend of Marechal Foch, Merlot & Cabernet Franc married with the pressing off of Vista D’oro Green Walnuts from its macerating partner Okanagan Gamay Noir Brandy.

2008 D’oro Vin de Garde
The best of our 2008 D’oro – aged separately in a small Hungarian oak cask. Intense velvety caramel and butterscotch notes.

NV Pinot NoiX
This dry fortified apéritif is created with our best Pinot Noir cold soaked in our Vista D’oro green walnuts after they’ve spent a full year in B.C. plum brandy.
