In the fall of 2002 we purchased a beautiful 5 acre farm on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley and we named it “Joie”.

In the fall of 2002 we purchased a beautiful 5 acre farm on the Naramata Bench in the Okanagan Valley and we named it “Joie”. Joie has been a constantly evolving concept that began as a guesthouse and critically acclaimed cooking school, located outdoors, formerly in our orchard. In 2007 the orchard was planted over to grape vines and a new winery building was built on the property. The story and of the cooking school and guesthouse have been captured in Heidi's award winning book Menus from an Orchard Table (Whitecap, 2007). With the addition of our own estate grown fruit in 2009, we have changed our name to JoieFarm to reflect our deeper connection to the place we call home. Read less

Complex white blend opens with floral notes and light stone fruit (apricot. peach smell..). Similar to a viognier from California this gewurtz, riesling, pinot gris and pinot auxerrois blend was very good - a litte petrol tint took a bit away ..would have preferred a crisper mouth feel.

Delicious! Pale golden colour doesn't suggest what the nose and palate deliver. This is a beatifully aromomatic. Floral, pear, spice, lanolin. A Blend of Alsacian grapes but produced in British Columbia. Food friendly with just a hint of sweetness balanced by some tangy acidity. Well worth seeking out.

My favourite wine at the moment. The 2006 Riesling is also quite lovely, which makes for a nice alternative as A Noble Blend is sold out almost everywhere (although the large bottle is still available at places like Liberty).
