Stag's Hollow Winery Celebrates 15th Year With First-of-Its Kind "Cachet™ Series"

Limited Edition Wines Highlight Pioneering British Columbia Winery's Dedication to Quality and Innovation

OKANAGAN FALLS, BC--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) - Marking its 15th anniversary as one of British Columbia's Okanagan Valley pioneering wine producers, Stag's Hollow Winery ( today unveiled the first two wines in the limited edition Cachet series of uniquely blended wines.

The Cachet series continues Stag's Hollow's tradition of producing award-winning, highest quality wines while incorporating grape varietals not typical to the British Columbia wine growing region. Crafted by Dwight Sick, winemaker, Cachet 2008 Limited Edition No. 1 (1500 bottles produced) blends Stag's Hollow estate-grown Tempranillo with estate-grown Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Osoyoos-region Syrah. The foundation of Cachet 2009 Limited Edition No. 2 (450 bottles produced) is Grenache blended with Syrah, Viognier and Marsanne.

"Each of the Cachet series wines tells a unique story that captures the passion, knowledge and caring that are key ingredients in every bottle of our wine," said Larry Gerelus, Stag's Hollow co-founder and co-owner. "The Cachet series maintains the quality of our core Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot offerings, and builds on the character of our popular 'Heritage Block' blends. The result is a series of elegant, complex, yet approachable wines with a distinct Stag's Hollow signature."
