Poplar Grove, one of the founding 5 wineries of the Naramata Bench is widely considered a jewel of the Okanagan Valley. Owned by the Hollar family, this operation is quite literally a family affair, with both parents and all 4 children working in the vineyards. Driven by a passion to create a legacy for his family, Tony Hollar - a retired ER physician, purchased Poplar Grove in 2007. With a dedication to quality over quantity, the Hollars have raised the bar on what is possible from grapes grown in the Okanagan Valley. We'll taste 2 of their flagship wines while I regale you with stories of how an ER doctor came to own one of the most awarded wineries in the Okanagan.
