In March 2015, the Golden Mile Bench was officially announced as a sub-Designated Viticultural Area (DVA) of the Okanagan Valley.  This DVA recognizes the Golden Mile Bench’s singular terroir due to its unique alluvial soil and micro-climate. This seminar explores the history of The Golden Mile, its unique terroir, and the research process for the sub-appellation.

Moderators: Anthony Gismondi and Rhys Pender MW

Sponsored by Golden Mile Bench Association
