The Naramata Bench’s geography was shaped by the last ice age.
Aboriginal people have called it home for millennia.
On the site that is now Hillside Winery at 1350 Naramata Rd., the pioneer Riddle family planted an apricot orchard in the early 1990s, Czech immigrants Bohumir and Vera Klokocka established vineyards in 1984 and then Hillside became one of the province’s first farmgate wineries in 1989.
That’s a lot of history and Hillside has captured it in its new Heritage Series of six wines.
“It’s a homage to our history and our land,” said Hillside winemaker Kathy Malone.
