We’ll be soon heading out to the Okanagan with our TV show “One sip at a time. We can’t wait to revisit one of our faves Burrowing Owl. A stunning winery that sits among its vineyards located in one of the most highly regarded areas in Canada for grape growing the Okanagan, British Columbia . Located near the north end of the Osoyoos Lake and at the northernmost tip of Canada’s only desert the Sonora. This ecosystem provides a challenge for the grapes but the winemaker has the magic touch producing award winning wines year after year.

I am a Syrah gal, when all the stars… components line up and the Burrowing Owl Syrah 2010 knocks it out of the ball park for me. A little rich on the budget but hey for that special occasion!
Not only rich admittedly on the purse, but rich in the mouth too! Rich and mouth watering with intense flavours of blackberries especially and hints of mocha with a long lingering finish. The barbecue repairman is coming this week to fix my BBQ and I’ll be ready to pair some of my fav Syrah with my chicken specialty!
Why the name Burrowing Owl? The winery founders Jim and Midge Wyse had a strong commitment to environmental and ecological sustainability. When they purchased the land that learned that the little owl may have lived on the land previously but now had become an endangered species.
Rarely found in the region today the winery donates the fees collected in the tasting room to the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC. Run now by son and President Chris Wyse the commitment continues and the wine shop alone raises close to $50,000 each year for this organization as well as the SORCO.

Dear Wine Ladies,
As a fan of Sauvignon Blanc my wife recently enjoyed a wine that was labeled Murphy-Goode Sauvignon Blanc, The Fumé from California. She absolutely loved it! Does “The Fumé” refer to another grape that is used in the making of this wine?
San Diego, California
No it is not actually the name of a grape varietal. Although Blanc Fumé is a synonym used in the Upper Loire Valley of France for Sauvignon Blanc.
Murphy-Goode’s Sauvignon Blanc, is a blended wine of two varietals, primarily Sauvignon Blanc and a hint of Semillon. Semilillon is a grape known for its blending with Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux.
David Ready Jr. the Winemaker for Murphy-Goode tells us, “the Semillon gives the wine those delicate floral notes and the touch of oak gives the wine that smokey, intriguing “fume“ personality”. A delightful wine indeed. We had the pleasure to enjoy with Dave, at the Murphy-Goode winery on a recent visit to Healdsburg in Sonoma County.
Please see link to this passionate winemaker’s description of this wine.
Fumé Blanc is a term that got its start in the early 1970’s when a California producer decided to rename his Sauvignon Blanc, Fumé Blanc and change it up with a bit of oak aging and a new dark green Bordeaux bottle. All agree the name was a bit of great marketing, riding the coat tails of the very popular French wine export Pouilly-Fumé.
