Poplar Grove Winery

British Columbia, Canada

Founded in 1993, Poplar Grove Winery has emerged as one of the original five wineries on the prestigious Naramata Bench in the picturesque Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. The winery was purchased by Tony and Barb Holler in 2007, with a long-term vision and dedication to establishing one of the most respected wine-growing estates in the country.

Today, their sons Chris, Andrew, Matthew, and Eric join them in carefully tending to over 140 acres of estate vineyards, driven by a shared commitment to showcasing the incredible diversity of the Okanagan Valley. The Holler family is leading the charge to put Okanagan Valley wines on the global map through their unwavering adherence to traditional farming and winemaking principles.

In 2004, Barb and Tony Holler purchased their original homestead property, realizing the immense potential of the Naramata Bench to produce world-class wines. Their journey began with five acres of Merlot, and their dedication to traditional farming and winemaking principles has been unwavering ever since.

Today, Poplar Grove farms over 140 acres of estate vineyards, cultivating nine key varietals that include Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. These vineyard properties span diverse microclimates, from the temperate conditions of the Naramata Bench to the exciting Skaha Bench vineyards, and the hot, dry sandy desert soils of the Osoyoos East Bench. Each vineyard site offers a unique expression of the terroir, contributing to the complexity and character of the wines.

At the heart of Poplar Grove’s philosophy is the belief that great wine has the power to bring people together. This belief has shaped the winery’s journey and influenced their approach to winemaking. In 2004, Barb and Tony Holler acquired their original homestead property, driven by Tony’s deep-rooted connection to the region, having grown up just across Okanagan Lake in Summerland.

It didn’t take long for him to recognize the immense potential of the Naramata Bench for cultivating world-class wines. Holler Estate Vineyards began with a modest five acres of Merlot, laying the foundation for what would later become a thriving estate.

Poplar Grove Winery continues to make its mark as a beacon of excellence in the Canadian wine industry. The Holler family’s commitment to quality, tradition, and sustainable practices shines through in every bottle they produce.

As they share their wines with the world, Poplar Grove invites wine lovers to come together, connect, and celebrate the transformative power of great wine. Through their passion and dedication, they are not only crafting exceptional wines but also shaping the future of winemaking in the Okanagan Valley.
