We are thrilled to introduce the STRANGERS - a trio of pocket-sized wines made in the spirit of enjoying the little things in life - always in good company!
WHY WINE? WHY NOT?
Appreciating that life is far too short for regrets, we decided to exercise our skills as beverage fermenters, indulge our love of process, and have some fun along the way by making this little series of wines to satisfy the wine drinkers among us.
Having the equipment, technology and essential know-how, all we were missing were the ingredients - but thanks to good winemaking friends in the Okanagan we were able to get our hands on some mighty fine grapes as well as some expert advice.
Our approach to making this wine was much the same as it is to beer: starting from a place of respect for the tradition, process and ingredients. Harvested in Oliver, Osoyoos and the Naramata Bench in the Fall of 2020, the grapes were pressed in the Okanagan and have been happily fermenting and ageing at Strange Fellows ever since.
Of course, we wouldn’t be Strange Fellows if we didn’t do something unexpected - like put the wine in cans - which we did so that folks can easily enjoy the STRANGERS anywhere... at the beach, park, or on top of a mountain.
The STRANGERS White and Rosé is ready to enjoy now, while the Red will spend a bit more time ageing in French oak barrels - its release anticipated for the Fall.
We hope you enjoy the time you spend in the good company of the STRANGERS as much as we have loved making them!
