Not too long ago we had the pleasure of interviewing on our audio podcast EPIDODE 31, the winemaker Mason Spink from Dirty Laundry. A wonderful winery located in Summerland of the Okanagan Valley.

This winery has a very cool history, with quite a bit of monkey business that went on in its earlier days. Check out the video for the full story. This winery is so much fun, it is laid back, tongue and cheek, but also makes fabulous wines.

My wine pick…Dirty Laundry Not So Knotty Chardonnay 2013 $19.95/bottle

“This femme fatale has a luscious, fruit forward style that is all nouveau monde. Vive la difference!” is how Mason Spink the winemaker refers to this un-oaked Chardonnay. It is stainless steel fermented to allow the fruit to show brilliantly in the wine.I loved this wine with a lively, bright acidity, citrus, apple and a hint of honey, really delicious and has also won numerous awards…

Just to let you know they also have a “Naughty Version of the Chardonnay… only this one is done in oak!

Pick up a bottle before they sell out!
