~2020 BUNKER WHITE-
Long before Rathjen Cellars, there was the Wine Bunker—a cramped, unfinished basement that served as a training ground for the art and craft of winemaking. This aromatic blend of Ortega, Pinot Gris and Auxerrois grapes grown on the Saanich Peninsula pays tribute to these humble beginnings. The Wine Bunker White is part of our ongoing exploration into growing and making food-friendly wines that truly reflect our unique coastal climate.
