WineScores' Review

Valley Commons is a winery established in the District Wine Village in Oliver in 2021. It is owned by Rudy Verhoeff and Kyla Richey, former professional volleyball athletes. They also purchased Stoneboat, an established winery on the Black Sage Gravelbar, also in Oliver. Both wineries fall under the Verhoeff Group of Companies, which is headed by Paul Verhoeff, Rudy's father. The family also owns a flooring company, a brewery and restaurants in the Fraser Valley.

This Pinot Gris drinks more like a Grigio with its citrus and crunchy orchard fruits, melon rind, wild honey and almond notes. It has a zesty palate and suggests oak contact somewhere in the winemaking process, it has a mouthwatering bitter almond finish.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
