STABLE DOOR CELLARS
Stable Door Cellars is owned by two couples – Susie & Dave Tebbutt and Danielle & Scott Robinson. Scott is their winemaker, following four years spent as winemaker at LaFrenz, as well as vintages at Kim Crawford in New Zealand and d’Arenberg in Australia. Stable Door is located at the corner of Upper Bench Road and McMillan Avenue, behind the Terry Isaac Gallery, and tastings are by appointment only.
Stable Door. You might be wondering about the door. It's original. Dave kept it when he renovated the barn. It seemed like a practical thing to do. Susie agreed.
Scott just wants to make wine and doesn't care much about things like doors, but Danielle likes the way it adds a bit of historical whimsy to a humble space, and thinks the other three are more sentimental than they pretend.
Behind the door is the barrel room.

100% Riesling. This is a single vineyard Riesling (clone 49) produced from grapes grown at the Arawana Vineyard in Naramata. Extensive vine management was employed to enhance aroma and flavor development. Skin contact, varied yeast strains and long, cool fermentations have yielded vibrant aromas and flavours which include lime, grapefruit and apple. The palate is slightly off-dry to balance the racy acidity that gives Riesling its crisp, refreshing signature. The finish is dry and long.

100% Viognier. Viognier benefits from a long, warm growing season to bring out its true varietal characters. Our Viognier, sourced from two Naramata Bench vineyards, including clone 642 on our home block, was cropped low to encourage flavour, phenolic and sugar ripeness. Skin contact and a blend of stainless steel and neutral barrel fermentations contributed to its unique aromatic profile. There are aromas of white peach and tropical fruits. The palate texture is full due to pre-blending lees aging and the oily/viscous nature of ripe Viognier. The finish is crisp and dry.
