Class of 2013: C.C. Jentsch Cellars
John Schreiner on Wine:
The BC Wine Institute’s fall tasting this week was a coming out event for C.C. Jentsch Cellars, the most recent winery to open this summer.
C.C. Jentsch – the “J” is pronounced “Y” – has come out of the gate quickly because proprietors Chris and Betty Jentsch already had a suitable building right on Highway 97, midway between Oliver and Osoyoos. The finishing touches are being done on the tasting room.
There is a dramatic story behind this winery beginning with the Testalinden Creek mud slide on a Sunday afternoon in June 2010.
