March 25th, 2023- Osoyoos LaRose/The Wait is Over with Winemaker Michael Kullmann
Osoyoos LaRose Winemaker – Michael Kullmann/The wait is over.
Many press releases cross my screen. This one caught my eye and imagination.
Osoyoos Larose is a Bordeaux winery in the Okanagan. The owner Groupe Taillan, is a major producer of wines in Bordeaux.
They produce around 12,000 cases at Osoyoos Larose and most of it finds its way to Eastern Canada.
For the first time, Osoyoos Larose is offering its wines direct-to-consumer, via a new winery membership subscription list.
What this means is that wine lovers in BC and Alberta can now join “La Maison Osoyoos Larose” to receive library wines from Osoyoos Larose, large format bottlings, and early access to new releases. You can find more details about it here: https://lamaisonosoyooslarose.com/
For those that know the wines, this is pretty big news.
After 20 years of public queries, wine fans will be excited for this chance to buy Osoyoos Larose wines.
Our guest for this entire Tasting Room is the winemaker and COO Michael Kullmann.
Michael was born in London and has a master of science degree from a Bordeaux university and experience at two Bordeaux wineries.
He became the vineyard manager at Osoyoos Larose in April, 2019, and took over managing the winery and making wine in January 2022.
We’re going to taste and talk about
Osoyoos Larose Le Grand Vin 2019 and 2020.
Plus a classic library release from 2009
Dark ripe black currents, plum, blueberries and cherries on the nose
Palate gifts you dark chocolate, spice, saddle and those same dark fruits from the nose.
Some weeks Tasting Room Radio has many voices telling the stories. Because this is such a special wine, winery and winemaker, there’s only one story and one storyteller – Osoyoos Larose and Michael Kullmann.
