Meet Tall Tale Wines

Tall Tale Wines is a small winery that does not have a fixed location but sources grapes from the South Okanagan. Tall Tale, which makes fine wine in small batches using a completely natural approach, released its first wines in 2017. Kyle Lyons, the winemaker and co-owner, entered the wine industry over a decade ago by sweeping floors at a local winery. He worked his way up from there to become a skilled winemaker with high standards for crafting excellent wine.

The Tall Tale Wine Pack


These 4 wines in front of you were hand picked by OkanaganWine.Club as they are a great representation of the quality and overall portfolio at Tall Tale Wines. 



Meet Tall Tale Wines

Tall Tale Wines is a small winery that does not have a fixed location but sources grapes from the South Okanagan. Tall Tale, which makes fine wine in small batches using a completely natural approach, released its first wines in 2017. Kyle Lyons, the winemaker and co-owner, entered the wine industry over a decade ago by sweeping floors at a local winery. He worked his way up from there to become a skilled winemaker with high standards for crafting excellent wine. After spending time making wine in Australia, Kyle came back to the Okanagan looking to challenge himself by making natural wine. Tall Tale makes unique wines that the winery believes to be a challenge, and this journey is filled with worthy and delicious challenges. Members are privileged to have the opportunity to sample these rare wines!
Kyle Lyons has been working in the wine industry since 2004. He is a local, so he has a unique insider view of Okanagan Valley. Kyle has a full-time job at a premium winery in Okanagan Falls, and Tall Tale wines is his passion project and unique challenge. Because Kyle is so well loved and respected in the Okanagan, he is able to craft his wine at different colleagues’ wineries each year.
The name “Tall Tale” was the result of Kyle growing up in a family of storytellers. Kyle’s grandfather used to tell stories about taming and breaking wild animals to help farm his land because he couldn’t afford a horse. It took Kyle a few years to figure out that these stories were nothing but tall tales, but the idea stuck. Kyle’s gentle sense of humour is reflected in the outlandish notes on winemaking on the back of the label that poke fun at the seriousness of the wine industry.
Kyle makes natural wine that is a true expression of the grape and terroir. This means the wines contain no added yeasts or additives, and the grapes are farmed in a low-intervention way. Natural wines often have a distinctly wild taste, and because they are very low in sulfur, they are best enjoyed fairly young. Kyle says that the path of making natural wine is stressful and unpredictable, but when it all comes together, the result is incredible.


About the Wines

Tall Tale makes four different wines. Kyle set aside a few remaining bottles and also pulled from his personal library to put together some wines for you. The Tall Tale wine pack has two bottles of 2017 Semillon, one to enjoy this summer and one to keep in the cellar for a couple of years. Semillon is one of the few white wines that develops beautifully in the bottle.

Next up is a wine that has never been featured before by OWC—a 2016 Pinot Noir Blanc. Pinot Noir Blanc is neither a red wine or a rose. The inside of a Pinot Noir grape is clear, and most of the flavors and aromas and all of the color comes from the skins. This is a lovely off-dry white wine produced with Pinot Noir. The grapes are pressed after harvesting while avoiding any skin contact with the juice.
Yet another new style for members to get excited about is the 2016 Syrah Nouveau. This Syrah is made in an unoaked fresh and juicy style that is similar to Beaujolais Nouveau from France. Here, Kyle uses a winemaking technique in which fermentation begins inside the grape without the grape being crushed.
OWC members have never seen wines like these before, and they will certainly disappear quickly. As sometimes happens, twenty-four very lucky folks will switch out one bottle of 2017 Semillon for the completely sold out 2017 VRM. Only sixty cases of this gorgeous white blend were made. Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne complement one another perfectly, so this will surely become the wine you talk about all summer. OWC rarely features a winery of this small size with such wonderful and rare wines. Get them while you can!

The Okanagan Wine Club: Bringing You Quality Local Wines You’ll Love

 
Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we’re passionate about bringing you great local wines from world-renowned and boutique wineries. As wine lovers ourselves, we know how challenging it is to walk into a liquor store and find a new bottle of wine to try (many of our selections CAN’T be found in liquor stores). Will it pair nicely with the meal you’ve planned? Is it a good vintage? We’ve had these questions ourselves, and that’s why we work hard to take the guesswork out of trying new wines. We work directly with some of the Okanagan’s best wineries to hand-select the top seasonal offerings and bring them straight to your door.
What does that mean? It means you can spend less time analyzing your wines and more time enjoying them. It means you’ll never again have to guess whether or not 2011 was a good year for local whites or whether you’re overpaying for that bottle of Merlot. Put away your vintage charts; when you shop through the Okanagan Wine Club, you’ll benefit from our wine experts’ knowledge and experience in choosing great local wines.

No Monthly Fee Means You Only Pay for What You Want

 

One common question we often get is what monthly dues we charge to be part of the club. The answer? None. We don’t charge our members any kind of monthly fee whatsoever. Joining the club is absolutely free, and always will be.

The Okanagan Wine Club is not a monthly membership site, and this is important for several reasons:

  •  No monthly membership fee means you can try wines at your leisure.
  • You can pick and choose the sample packs you want to receive without having to cancel a featured pack (I always forgot to cancel and got stuff I didn’t want).
  • No inventory on hand means we don’t guarantee sales to the wineries, which means they give us their highest quality wine.

Our partner wineries know that our current and future club members are passionate about great wine, and that our members represent a significant part of the wine enthusiast community – that means the wineries are proud to present their very best wines to Okanagan Wine Club members

FAQ

Do I Need to Sign a Contract?

Not at all! Joining the Okanagan Wine Club is entirely free and doesn’t require any paperwork. You have no contract with us and may choose to unsubscribe at any time. We do not trap you into monthly charges…you simply buy the sample packs you want 🙂 Simple.

What Happen If I Want to Leave the Okanagan Wine Club?

 You don’t really have to leave, as you are not in a subscription! You just don’t buy anymore (but we doubt that will happen).

Is This a Connoisseurs-Only Club? Do I Have to Know Anything About Wine to Join the Club?

It can seem intimidating at first to join a wine club when you know nothing about wine, but rest assured you have nothing to fear. The Okanagan Wine Club is proud to offer a variety of educational materials that will help you to become a wine master in no time. Our weekly newsletters and blog articles are full of great information that can help you to better understand the wine world. With these materials, you’ll learn about wine regions, flavour and texture profiles, and all the big industry news. Best of all, it’s written in a beginner-friendly manner that assumes absolutely zero knowledge of wine, wine pairings, or the wine industry. Even if you’re starting fresh with no wine background whatsoever, you’ll love what we have to offer – and you’ll quickly learn everything you need to know.

Best of all, joining the Okanagan Wine Club is completely free and requires no monthly commitment. So even if you’re not a “wine club” person, you can still learn about, enjoy, and discuss the best wines in the Okanagan.

I Only Like One Kind of Wine!

One of the great advantages of joining our wine club is that you’ll be able to try new, boutique wines easier than ever. Perhaps the reason you don’t like white wines, for instance, is because you haven’t yet found the right white. Wines come in many diverse forms and flavour profiles, and by ordering today you get to try 6 new wines.

I Don’t Drink Enough Wine to Justify Joining a Wine Club!

Even if you don’t necessarily drink wine on a regular basis, you probably still celebrate with it, or entertain family and friends. It’s never a bad idea to have a few bottles of wine on hand should some old friends unexpectedly drop in – and by being prepared, you’ll look like a fantastic host. Wine also makes an excellent gift for birthdays and holidays. Invited for a dinner party? Quickly grab a nice bottle with a story to tell. No one will ship you wine automatically. If you order once, that’s it (until you choose to order more).

I’m Afraid to Give Out My Credit Card Number Online!

We understand that e-commerce can be intimidating, and credit card fraud is a real concern. We ensure that the winery in turn has a payment platform that uses secure SSL verification, a security method that prevents third parties from getting your information. SSL verification ensures that your computer only connects to trusted sites that independent third parties have confirmed as reliable. It’s the technological equivalent of keeping your credit card in a box with two different locks protecting it. 

What If I Don’t Like Your Wine?

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we strive to bring you the best wine deals in the region – and in support of that mission, we’ve chosen to focus exclusively on cultivating and distributing a great selection of products.  By partnering with several different wineries, we’re able to offer you a wider selection of wines to try and enjoy.

Sadly, this means we have no control over the wine making process, and therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of each individual bottle. However, many of our partner wineries do allow you to return wine directly to the winery if the quality has been compromised. If you are unsatisfied with your wine purchase or the quality of your wine, please email us to help you solve the issue.

There’s A Specific Kind of Wine I Want, But You Don’t Offer It!

The great freedom we offer over traditional wine membership sites is that you, the user, are free to order the wine packs you want and decline the wine packs you don’t want. So thankfully, you’re not obligated to buy a wine you don’t think you’ll enjoy (we encourage trying new wines).

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we try to come out with new offers every two weeks. If you don’t see your preferred wine in our offers, send us an email and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Where am I Purchasing The Wine?
You are purchasing wine directly from the winery. All on their site but we are working closely with the wineries to ensure that OWC members get treated as true VIPs and enjoy a quality experience every time.
