Okanagan Wine Club has tasted all our wines and has carefully curated a mix of three complex reds and one expressive white that showcases Aasha Wines diverse taste profiles. 

 

A sleek & stylish Syrah with a beguiling inner magnetism & seductive glint in its eye— if it were a person it would be some sort of crazy game-changing hybrid of James Bond & James Dean. Fresh & light-bodied, yes, but juicebox-y one-note park wine this Syrah is not! This is a lighter red with a backstory, a glass of wine like a mystery to be solved: it’s like standing in front of a Jackson Pollock painting, an endless parade of new details to uncover. Red & blue fruit flavours stroll hand-in-hand with bright green eucalyptus & swirls of spicy tobacco; classic savoury Syrah notes of crispy bacon, cigar box, & leather saddle are woken up by an electric flash of grape stem on the finish. This is a red that can pair with literally anything, even nothing: it’s a red wine drinker’s aperitif!

Not too big, not too light, this pinot is just right. Inviting aromas of strawberries, vanilla, black pepper, and fresh-cut flowers set the stage for this velvety, yet super-fresh pinot. Black raspberry, cherry, and spicy cedar round out the palate, while a hint of burnt orange peel on the finish keeps things interesting. It may be too complex for Goldilocks, but bear in mind she’s a young girl—there’s no doubt this is a sophisticated crowd-pleaser.

A chic yet undeniably powerful expression of Cab Sauv: dashing, athletic & nuanced, the kind of wine that seduces you deeply & carefully over the course of a bottle rather than knocking you out in one go with the first sniff (since who wants that???) The nose is like walking into a fancy English apothecary a hundred years ago— dried eucalyptus, sweet tobacco & the gentlest whiff of sandalwood. Darker fruit palate is deep but not lacking freshness, perfectly ripe and balanced by a verdant note of early springtime earth. Velvety cat’s tongue tannins, structured like an exquisitely-tailored Savile Row suit. A food wine that asks all the right questions: adores a great steak, but has the finesse to go lighter if need be.

THE STORY BEHIND THE WINE

OUR STORY

We never intended to be the sole owners of a winery in British Columbia. We love wine and we love the unique climate and terroir of the Naramata Bench. We also live across the country in Toronto. Our intention was to join this project as silent partners but the best laid plans often go awry. When the situation changed and the partnership broke apart, we chose to take a chance.


But the story of Aasha is not ours alone. We set out to find the best people in the region to help us make the best wine possible. Wine we want to drink. Wine that reflects this hopeful little labour of love. Our winery sits on a small sliver of land in the Naramata Bench region at the northern end of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. Each of our bottles features an illustration from our talented friend and artist, Reena Mistry, and a whimsical short story from key moments in our lives—the rough contours of the winding road that brought us here.

At 2.8 acres, our sustainably-farmed estate vineyard is amongst the smallest in the region. Our yields are amongst the lowest as well. We farm for quality, not quantity—always striving to produce wine that tells the pure and honest story of our land and the growing season.


In 2020, we built a new micro-winery on the property but continue to make our wines with the support of Okanagan Crush Pad, where most of our previous vintages were made. In addition to our estate wines, we source Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from other small, top-tier vineyards in the province that are farmed sustainably and produce great fruit.


Our wines carry our stories, but we hope they can now play a part in the moments and stories shared around your dinner table.
