Meet Anarchist Mountain Vineyard

Anarchist Mountain Vineyard is a very small producer with a four-and-a-half acre vineyard on forty acres of mountain wilderness in Osoyoos. Uniquely, this vineyard sits on the east side of Anarchist Mountain, seven hundred feet above the valley floor. With a stunning view, this vineyard gets a ton of sunshine with cool mountain breezes among sagebrush and rattlesnakes.
Anarchist Mountain Vineyard marked its first vintage in 2011. It is a passion project for owners Andrew and Terry Stone, who are originally from Alberta. Anarchist Mountain is making fine wine that is expressive of the elevated vineyard and the old age of the vines. These wines are elegant yet structured and surprisingly poised for being situated so far south Okanagan. We have been wanting to show off these gems for a long time!
The vineyard was planted more than twenty years ago with Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. The grapes are farmed by Andrew Stone. Andrew aims to showcase the purest expression of his vineyard by meticulously caring for his mature vines on this unique plateau. Andrew takes a sustainable and gentle approach in the vineyard.  He has a real connection with the site and views growing grapes as a passion and an art. The wines are all excellent examples of elegant, cool-climate, BC wines. They are complex, mineral-driven, and full of finesse.
When Andrew began as a grape grower, he apprenticed under Chris Carson, who is now the winemaker for Anarchist. Chris Carson is the winemaker and viticulturist at Meyer Family Vineyard and produces a Pinot Noir under his own name, “Carson.” Anarchist Mountain Vineyard is a custom-crush client for Meyer Family Vineyard. This means that Andrew grows the grapes, and after they have been harvested, he brings them to Meyer Family Vineyard for Chris to do his part. Chris and Andrew work together to express the beauty of Anarchist Mountain Vineyard.
Chris has a very gentle hand in the winery because he believes that beautiful wine is made in the vineyard. His approach reflects a sense of place, and he allows the wines to develop naturally. His wines are full of subtlety, intrigue, and complexity. Chris is one of the Okanagan’s most talked-about winemakers, and he has been at Meyer Family Vineyard since 2008. He has a particular love of Pinot Noir for its elegance and its unique vineyard variation. He draws on his work experience from Central Otago in New Zealand, which only produces Pinot Noir for red varietals. Chris also has a degree in Oenology/Viticulture from the esteemed Lincoln University in NZ.

About the wines

This wine pack is perfect for enhancing a conversation or meal with friends and family. Anarchist strives to produce wines with finesse and elegance above all else. The vineyard produces just fewer than six hundred cases of wine every year and only three different wines. This portfolio is so limited that you cannot purchase most of the wines anywhere but here.
To begin with, the pack includes two bottles of the stunning 2016 Elevation Chardonnay. These vines are more than thirty years old, so this is a compelling and mineral-driven Chardonnay. Next is a pair of the 2016 Mayhem, a lively and savoury blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. You will be glad you have two! You will also enjoy one bottle of the 2016 Wildfire Pinot Noir, which is currently sold out. This Pinot Noir is elegant, light, and structured. Last but certainly not least is the 2015 Carson Pinot Noir.
As mentioned above, Carson is the personal label of Chris Carson, of which he only makes Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir comes from an elevated vineyard in Naramata and is given the same hands-off treatment in the winery as all of his other wines are. This Pinot Noir is complex yet rich and truly shows the passion and experience of Chris as a Pinot Noir enthusiast. This wine pack has been so highly anticipated that we are sure to sell out early. All of these wines are made with passion and a love of the grape for your enjoyment. Cheers!

This 6 bottle Selection includes 2 Elevation Chardonnay, 2 Mayhem, 1 Wildfire Pinot Noir and 1 Chris Carson Pinot Noir
