Nostalgia Series

HomeNostalgia Series

On the Black Sage Bench in Oliver BC, vintner and family farmer Gina Fernandes Harfman combines her passion for winemaking with her family’s four generations of experience farming the South Okanagan terroir, to put forth a small lot lineup of wines that perfectly exemplify their vintage. At her woman-owned and run Nostalgia Wines, Gina invites you to make moments with what she has captured in the bottle and create tomorrow’s memories.

Pinot Gris 2021

2021 Pinot Gris is now SOLD OUT at the winery. It was featured as a limited release in BC Liquor Stores, you may still find it there.
Nostalgia’s dry, medium-bodied Pinot Gris is a bottled Okanagan memory of walking through the blossoms of orchards, enjoying fresh peaches, apples and pears. Like the Okanagan, she’s beautiful year round! Try with spot prawns in spring, summer salads, spaghetti carbonara in fall and pork roast in winter.

Kerner 2021

Our off-dry Kerner is like sunshine in a glass with notes of honeyed pear, lime and ginger spice.

Do you know Kerner? She’s part of the Riesling family. Although Kerner makes up less than 1% of BC’s total grapevine plantings, at Nostalgia Wines we grow more Kerner in our home vineyard than any other grape, making Kerner our top seller! We love Kerner, and know you will too.

Kerner is happy by herself or alongside dishes with exotic flavours — especially when served with a squeeze of lime. Try with fish tacos or Pad Thai.

Viognier 2021

Let Viognier’s exotic allure carry you away with each sip.

Her tropical perfume of apricot, mango, pineapple, mandarin and peach is intoxicating. On the palate, this rich, full white reflects the intense heat of 2021. The lingering, concentrated finish of candied peaches and mangoes is part of her lasting charm.

We love Viognier with sushi, scallops, or Chicken a l’Orange.

Rosé 2020

Merlot 2019

The bold, bright nose of this seductive Merlot is the warmest welcome of our home vineyard, planted in 2006.

Dark cherries, ripe plums, cocoa, caramel, baking spices and toasty oak complexity draw you in, and the wine pours over your palate with a round, rich intensity balanced by fresh acidity and firm tannins.

This well structured Merlot will love hard, aged cheese. It also begs to be paired with a hearty protein dish, such as roast beef or lamb.
