On the sunbathed Black Sage Bench in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Phantom Creek Estates crafts exceptional wines from our historic vineyards.
Phantom Creek Estates is home to estate vineyards across two distinct benches in the Okanagan Valley. Uniquely influenced by geological forces millennia in the making, today these acclaimed, historic vineyards are each certified organic and farmed according to meticulous biodynamic techniques. Each of our estate vineyards is farmed with care and precision under the guidance of Olivier Humbrecht MW, one of the leading authorities on organic and biodynamic farming.
Established in 1996 by pioneering viticulturist Richard Cleave, Phantom Creek Vineyard is consistently recognized for producing some of the best red wines in Canada. And its tiny acreage is in sharp contrast to its ability to produce powerful, opulent wines.
Located on the lower terrace of the southwest-facing Black Sage Bench, it sits just above the valley floor, ensuring full access to the warm afternoon sun. Its well-draining sandy soils were caused by streams that slowly deposited nutrient-rich sediment over thousands of years.
Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (clones 169, 15, 191), Syrah, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot
