Ex Nihilo Vineyards   Award winning unique wines and quite a story to go with them. The Rolling Stones became involved. Exactly how did all this lead to the Rolling Stones? Jeff (the ultimate fan) was served Rolling Stones Cabernet Sauvignon at a VIP dinner hosted by the band in San Francisco. He then realized there might be a niche to develop a Canadian ice wine with the greatest band in the world. Eventually the Harders formed Celebrity Cellars Canada, which is the northern extension of Martin Erlichman’s Celebrity Cellars of Los Angeles, producers of Celine Dion, Madonna and KISS vintages. The ice wine project took three years to develop. “It’s hard to tie the boys down for a business meeting,” noted Harder. The Stones approved the concept while touring in Belgium in June 2007, and production was in full-swing from that point on. Of course, this occurred exactly as the estate vineyards at Ex Nihilo were being planted – 8 acres of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Riesling. The vineyard site is gorgeous, with the soil and climate perfectly suited to the chosen varieties and the southwest facing slopes all fully overlooking Okanagan Lake. Decoa reflects on the first time they walked the steep, un-touched hillside. “We realized at that moment we had found our Ex Nihilo,” she says, “the land where we could commit to creating wines that would reveal its beauty and essence.”

Calona Vineyards has the distinction of being British Columbia's original winery. As a pioneer in the BC wine industry, Calona  Vineyards often leads the way to higher levels of craftsmanship  Calona's wines are award-winning, rivaling the world's most established names while complimenting the Okanagan Valley  & its growing international reputation.

A great mix of variety and scenery on this tour, lots of history & variety of unique products
