Perched high on a rolling hillside that cascades into Skaha Lake, this is undoubtedly one of the most majestic vineyard sites in the valley. It is also one of the most desirable, with some of the region's most ideal topography and attractive microclimate. Now into its second decade of grape production, our vineyard has long been a choice purveyor of premium quality grapes to many of British Columbia's leading wineries. Nearly all of our estate harvest is now dedicated to the production of fine wines. This is exceptionally important for us as we believe that wines of exceptional character truly begin in the vineyard. Read less

This Okanagan winery’s name and award-winning labels arise from cleverly exploited local history. In the nearby community of Okanagan Falls, there is a small church that was moved there in 1929 from an abandoned mining community. The movers charged with taking it apart for the move had difficulty extracting the huge nails from the heavy beams. A foreman named Hatfield set off a small dynamite charge, successfully loosening the nails. Naturally, the church soon became known as the Blasted Church. The winery mines that history in its own name and in the name of several wines, including Hatfield’s Fuse, its most popular white, perhaps because with 12 grams of residual sugar this is the winery’s only off-dry wine. In 2006, 3,400 cases were made – about a quarter of Blasted Church’s total production.Five aromatic grapes, most of them estate grown, are blended to produce a Conundrum look-alike. It is a wine with layers of aroma and flavour – aromas of peaches and green apples, flavours of apples, mangoes and limes. There is good weight on the mid-palate. The balance is so good that, in spite of the slight sweetness, the finish is almost dry. 88 points.



Colour: Mid-straw with lime hues. Bouquet: Orange blossom, melon, honey, pear, peach, pineapple, and citrus notes. Palate: Medium bodied, with melon, citrus on the entry followed by a tropical fruit mid-palate leading to a slightly spicy, orange finish.
