John Schreiner on wine - Arneis and Its Nearly Lost Friends

Arneis, a white grape varietal from Piedmont, is one of rising stars among Italian varietals now also being planted elsewhere.

Arneis wine is being produced not just in Italy but in Australia, New Zealand, California, Oregon and in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley by Moon Curser Vineyards. Read more Click Here.

Great Northwest Wine - Moon Curser Vineyards 2014 Contraband Series Arneis, $26

This Italian white grape rarely is seen in the Pacific Northwest, but one would hope the work in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley by Chris and Beata Tolley along the U.S./Canada border will prove to be inspiring. Read more Click Here.

Western Living Magazine - Wine Reviews: Use With Caution

I look at wine reviews all the time. If it’s a wine I’m not familiar with, or if it’s a bottle I’ve set down for a few years and I want to see how it’s drinking, often the first thing I do is Google it. It doesn’t govern what I’m going to do or think, but it’s a useful starting point. The problem starts when you start taking them as gospel because all a wine review is, is a certain person’s take at a certain point in time—that’s it.

"A pretty darn magnificent bottle of Moon Curser Tempranillo reminded me of the need to always put critics’ take in the proper perspective." Read more Click Here.

Montecristo Magazine - Moon Curser, The Wine

Quirky, delightful labels, fearless plantings of grape varieties such as tannat, touriga nacional, and carmenere, and a name: Moon Curser. That plus some heartfelt winemaking and you have a winning recipe, and an exemplar of what the region is capable of. Read more Click Here.

The Globe & Mail - Moon Curser Dead of Night 2012 - 90 pts

Here's an unusual blend for Canada, made from equal parts tannat and syrah. Tannat is a rare variety in North America, better known as the tannic red grape responsible for the wines of Madiran in southwest France and also as a signature grape of Uruguay. The astringent tannins have been kept in good control by Moon Curser, a fine winery known for growing offbeat European varieties. Read more Click Here.

John Schreiner on wine - Moon Curser and my Neighbours

It is axiomatic that wine is best enjoyed in the company of other wine lovers.

By good fortune, I had samples from Moon Curser Vineyards, which was opened in 2006 by Beata and Chris Tolley. Having planted varieties different from the Okanagan mainstream, they produce some of the most interesting wines in the Okanagan. Read more Click Here.

The Globe & Mail - It's a Region Known for Reds.......

Moon Curser's second arneis crop, harvested from young vines in 2014, proves that the variety can perform splendidly in the sunny south Okanagan, without the need for Piedmont's relatively cool, foggy climate. This superb effort, aggressively pruned to low fruit yields, is medium-bodied and rounded in texture, with ripe pear-like fruit enlivened by nuances of smoke, spice and minerality.

The Georgia Straight - B.C. Wine Picks for Everyone

While most wine-lovers know flinty and crisp Arneis as a variety hailing from northern Italy, Moon Curser has gone out on a limb to prove the grape can express itself well in the deserts of Osoyoos. Read more Click Here.

The Globe & Mail 0 Moon Curser 2013 Carmenere - 90 pts

Chile, move over. Moon Curser is working wonders with the South American country's signature red grape. And this is a wine worthy of comparison with some of Chile's better examples, which may be a consolation to those who find the price as frighteningly high as an Andes peak. Read more Click Here.
