21 Oct Poplar Grove Winery
In 1993 Poplar Grove Winery began as the quintessential garage winery located on the slopes of the Naramata Bench about 10 minutes from downtown Penticton, BC. The original owner, Ian Sutherland, was inspired by the Naramata Bench’s ability to produce exceptional fruit and decided to dedicate his entire eight acre property to premium grape production. It was this initial decision that helped to define Poplar Grove’s present goal: to produce world-class wines from family owned estate grown fruit.
In 2007, Tony Holler became Poplar Grove’s majority owner & President. Ian Sutherland and Barrie Sali complete the newly defined ownership team. When Tony Holler invested in Poplar Grove, the Holler family brought with them 110 acres of prime vineyard sites located throughout the Okanagan Valley. The vineyard acres are appropriately named Holler Estate Vineyards and are owned by Barbara Holler. The Holler Estate Vineyards allow Poplar Grove to produce 100 percent estate grown top quality wines.
