2018 Viognier

"As in previous vintages the fruit is sourced from Red Brick vineyard (east side of Osoyoos Lake) and the estate vineyard Shady Lagoon. 75% of the fermentation and aging happens in concrete with the remainder split between one French oak barrel and stainless. Upon the first few swirls, whiffs of tangerine, honeysuckle and soft fruits waft out of the glass. The juicy core is further enhanced by lemony shortbread and honeyed peach cream with a dusting of ginger. Weighty, without being rich and fat, persists to the finish. Paired with curry chicken thighs and Moroccan-spiced blood orange couscous."

2016 Carménère

100% Estate Grown
Aged 18 months in 85% French Oak, 35% which is new.

"The 2016 growing season never reached extreme temperatures and with long summer Lariana Carmenere achieved balance of sugar/phenolic without diminishing acidity. Deep, well-defined nose focuses on blue fruit, black cherry, plum compote and a dusting of cacao. Flavours are further swathed by baking spices, more of the dark plum and rich mocha notes.Duck breast with a rich plum sauce, any other game bird and chicken in the intricate mole sauce comes to mind."

2015 "FIFTEEN"

“The blend is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 17% Carménère. The wine was aged 18 months in French oak (35% new). This is a bold and generous wine. Aromas and flavours of dark fruit mingle with spice, fig, dark chocolate and tobacco. The wine has long, ripe and polished tannins. 94.”

2014 "FOURTEEN"

"Year 3 of the Lariana Blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvingon 63%, Carmenere 11%, (all estate grown) with additional Merlot 26% from the Naramata Bench. Yielding aromas of ripe crushed blackberries and black currants, the structure is further supported by their same silken richness. Dark plums laced with a chocolate licorice note continue to the intensely generous flavourful finish."
~ Senka Tennant, Winemaker

"Firm and age-worthy, the wine begins with aromas of black cherry. On the palate, there are flavours of black currant, black cherry, leather and tobacco. 93 points."

Lariana Cellars

Growing Together

Welcome to Lariana Cellars, a boutique-style winery featuring small lot, handcrafted wines from Osoyoos, BC. Our story began decades ago with 10 acres of property on Osoyoos Lake, located at the southern most tip of the Okanagan Valley. Originally known as Shady Lagoon Campsite, the lakeside remains an RV Park while the upper portion has changed from orchard to vineyard.

It wasn’t until 2007 that the promise of a shiny new tractor inspired us to replace our fruit trees with grapevines. The vineyard was planted under the advice and direction of one of the Okanagan’s most respected pioneer in grape growing. The countless hours we invest and the careful growing practices we employ result in premium grapes that are a true reflection of our unique microclimate. Hot, dry days and cool, crisp nights set the ideal stage for producing deep, flavourful varieties such as Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carmenere. In 2012, after three years of selling our crop to local wineries, we decided to take the plunge and Lariana Cellars was born.

Hard Work and Light Hearts Create Serious Wine

At Lariana, we’ve been exploring the art of viticulture since our teens. From the days of working at Shannon/Pacific vineyard on Black Sage Road in Oliver, to hauling grapes down to the coast to be crushed under the feet of friends, to our beginnings of making Okanagan wine with friends for many years, to our early dabbling in creative at-home experimentation, wine has always been our calling. Founding family members, Larry and Anna, were a huge influence on our decision to follow our passion. Their unwavering foresight and zest for adventure inspired us to name our winery for them, keeping our motivation to have fun creating serious wine constantly on the tips of our tongues.

Our garage-style winery is located alongside our 5 acre vineyard and we are very much involved in every aspect of the winemaking process. With the help of a professional wine maker, we love combining classic vinification practices with innovative new methods to produce wines that are sure to leave you wanting more.
