In celebration of Earth Day, it was logical to look to Dunham & Froese. This Oliver winery follows organic and biodynamic practices, leading and inspiring others to the same since 2005. Partners Gene & Shelly Covert, and Kirby & Crystal Froese are hands-on partners in this small production winery located on the stunning 600 acre Covert Farms Organics – sited at the gateway to the McIntyre Bluff. Plus, buying local reduces our carbon footprint – no overseas freight required for this sipper!So the winery pick is Earth Day evident, but Easter? I’m thinking of a lovely, aromatic white wine, perfect for Sunday brunch or Easter ham dinner. Amicitia [am-ee-CHEE-tee-ah] is Latin for friends, and the trio of whites in this blend have certainly bonded together like best buddies. Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier are aged for 4 months sur lie, providing a round and smooth mouth feel to these expressive and fragrant grapes. A nose of perfumed lychee, white honey and ripe Anjou pear lead to a round and oily palate of pear, apricot, lees and citrus, and a softly spiced finish.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean)OkanaganWhite WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
